Team Group is a well-known Taiwanese hardware manufacturer with a long history of catering to the needs of enthusiasts and gamers from all over the globe. Their lineup includes DRAM memory and solid-state drives, and they also offer various memory cards and USB thumb drives.

Today, we have for review the Team Group MP34Q, which extends the famous MP34 lineup with a QLC NAND model. We also reviewed the Team Group Z44Q a few weeks ago, which is a PCIe Gen 4 SSD with QLC, powered by the Phison E16.

The Team Group MP34Q in this review uses the Phison E12 controller, which also makes it PCI-Express Gen 3. Other important components are Micron 96-layer 3D QLC NAND chips, like on nearly all QLC-based drives out there. 512 MB of DRAM cache are also present, and what's surprising is that 512 MB is a rather small amount of DRAM for a 2 TB SSD. We reviewed the Corsair MP400 a while ago, which is very similar to the MP34Q: Phison E12, 96-layer Micron QLC, but 1 TB of DRAM. Another data point is the Sabrent Rocket Q, which is the same drive, but with only 256 MB DRAM. An interesting comparison will be to see how much of a difference the various DRAM sizes can make.

The Team Group MP34Q comes in capacities of 2 TB ($300), 4 TB ($700), and 8 TB ($1,300). Endurance for these models is set to 450 TBW, 900 TBW, and 1800 TBW respectively. Team Group includes a five-year warranty with the MP34Q.
