    they go about $800 on ebay. donno if its worth it you could just do $100 more for 5100 which is TLC and has faster sustained sequential write, also higher endurance and higher 4k random.

    oh yeah, preaching to the choir here man. look at the abysmal 700TB endurance rating at 4k random writes, and that for a 8TB class drive! nah man, super happy with my two 4TB 860 Evos, no worries about my data :)

    these drives not really meant for lots of 4k random though. drive most likely targeted by data center for write once read lots type of workload. even then thats 4k random write at 700TB so best way to kill it would be torrent on it or using it as OS/cache drive.

    sequential storage onto it is best

    700TB is not abysmal! Certainly not for consumer usage. Sure per TB it might be low, but 700TB is many times greater than most TLC SSDs.

    There are 8th TLC and even MLC. Go for TLC if you can.

    there is a reason why you should look at the write endurance in relation to the total drive capacity :p otherwise, we might just as well just set 100 TB to all drives and call it a day.

    the bigger the drive, the bigger the amounts of data u will write to it. same goes with increasing performance: writes accumulate WAY faster on an NVME drive as compared to a SATA drive, trust me! speaking from experience here :)

    I mean 700TB is a lot of data. My SLC caching drives on my server are under 52TB and they have over 35,000 hours of power on time, and everything that goes onto my storage drives goes there first (including my entire 4TB steam library and all of the daily updates). I would be surprised to see a typical user get anywhere near 700TB within the useful life of these drives.
