The Corsair MP400 1TB QLC NVMe SSD: A Quick Review

See the original posting on Anandtech

Following up from our recent look at 8TB QLC SSDs, today we’re taking a look at the 1TB Corsair MP400. This is a QLC NVMe SSD using the Phison E12 controller, which puts it a step up from earlier QLC SSDs that used four-channel Silicon Motion controllers. However, at the more affordable 1TB capacity point, the downsides of QLC NAND are more pronounced, and there is much more competition from budget TLC drives that make very different tradeoffs.
