Doesn't seem to have TBW listed on their spreadsheet, even though this is the copy on the UD80 product page.

Bare minimum for any drive I'd consider (sans MX500) is >600TBW/1TB, but since they don't even specify TLC or QLC, that's not looking good.

Can't complain about silicon power, using a P34A80 3D NAND 256gb for my boot drive, it is pretty quick

The UD70 is listed as QLC so there's a good chance the UD80 is also. No guarantees though.

From the press release-"The UD80 strikes a perfect harmony between cost and performance..." Hey Silicon power, how about listing a price so we can decide if the cost to performance is in perfect harmony? I couldn't find it anywhere on their website either.

isn't the TBW a bit low on the UD70?

And I thought my 300 TBW on my 980 Pro 500 gig boot drive was low - even if it isn't, only 20 TBW after a year and a half, and something tells me this drive will live past that 300TBW point.

It's QLC, what did you expect?

Have to agree, not good at all.
