Team Group's MP33 SSD is based on 96-layer TLC NAND from Toshiba paired with a new Phison controller that achieves impressive sustained writes and has the best thermals we've ever seen. Even when fully loaded, without airflow, there is no thermal throttling.

With the SX8200Pro costing the same $/GB, I'm not sure why anyone would consider this drive. The SX8200Pro still seems to just be the drive to get.

The firmware of the drive seems to have been tuned for benchmarks rather than real life applications. Also wondering if running at 83C with no throttling for extended period of time is going to adversely affected the lifespan of the drive (this kind of usage pattern is probably unrealistic on an average PC, again an evidence this no throttling might be delibrately designed for benchmarks).

Not an issue, other SSDs get much hotter before throttling

I'm always looking for SSD drive deals that price them to about $100 per TB or better.

Because of limited space in my gaming laptop, (two x M.2 NVMe and one Sata SSD) I'm more interested in 2TB drives than smaller 512GB drives that you'd typically only fit your OS and linked cloud folders on.

I don't recognize this brand and I'm not sure I'd buy from them.

How is their reliability?

Thus far, the intel 660p 2TB for $229 is my choice. Crucial and Samsung can't compete with that yet.

The HP EX950 2TB drive is what I have and it's pretty dang fast. Got it for $200 a month ago.
