[M.2 2230 ONLY] SSD Survey - Framework Laptop 16 DIY

If in China, there are two new options:
LITE-ON CL6 2TB M.2 2230
It uses SM2268XT from SMI, and 162L flash from Kioxia (industry’s first). Claims 6000MB/s sequential read and 5300MB/s sequential write. Available on Taobao. Since it’s a very new drive its SKU is unknown.
HIKVISION DK4000 2TB M.2 2230
The controller is MAP1602, and the flash is likely 232L TLC from YMTC but with 16 dies in a package, 1024Gb per die. On its description it claims ~7000MB/s sequential read/write performance. SKU is unknown.

That one have a DRAM cache. I have two of those.
I stole them from a Dell SFF Tower, but you can get them off like Aliexpress cheap.

Samsung Internal/OEM 512GB PM991a MZ-9LQ512B
That one despite Samsung don’t have DRAM cache. Only useful for drive images and backup use.

I got a Solidigm P41 Pro 1TB SSDPFPNU010TZ.

Timetec 2gb 2230 model MS72 fits perfectly and works well

This is a complete sentence.

Micron 2400 1TB M.2 2230 PCIe 4.0x4 MTFDKBK1T0QFM-1BD1AABYYR

Why wouldn’t I use the SABRENT Rocket, WD SN740, or Soldigm P41 Plus?

Two words: Idle power = 200mW

According to this site https://dancharblog.wordpress.com/2024/01/01/upgrade-sl3-or-spx-to-1tb/#gen4-m-2-2230-ssds, the Sabrent Rocket is just a re-brand of the Micron 2400, which is rated at 20 mW idle power. The SN740 only uses 7 mW at idle.

Hi Tim,
May I know your experience with this ssd? I am also interested in it but because of mix review, a bit hesistant.

Sabrent Rocket 2230 256 GB SB-2130-256

The SN740 I have in my FW 16 is the same as the SN770M (the latter just having more guaranteed TBW), which I measured at 5230 MB/s read and 4860 MB/s write. It does get considerably hotter under heavy usage than the 2280 (SN850X in my case), but which shouldn’t be much of an issue since most of the “heavy lifting” should be done on the faster (and cheaper) 2280 drive anyway. I can recommend it.
