Inland Prime M.2 NVMe SSD Revealed
The Inland Prime SSD is a DRAM-less NVMe drive popular with Micro Center shoppers due to its convenience and availability. The Inland Prime NVMe SSD delivers up to 3300 MBps of sequential read/write throughput. It is near the typical limits for a PCIe 3.0 SSD, but the Inland Prime comes with a friendly price tag so it’s a good fit if you’re looking for an entry-level SSD. The Inland prime NVMe SSDs feature a form factor that is convenient for all users, desktop and mobile alike.
While the Inland Prime solid-state drive offers nothing new on the performance front, it is TLC-based and is offered in Micro Center stores at a reasonable price. So it is a good alternative to DRAM-less, QLC-powered SSDs or can serve as a solid upgrade from older SATA SSDs. Additionally, the SSD comes with a 6-year warranty that covers six years of use or 400TB written per TB of capacity (whichever comes first).
The Inland Prime uses Phison’s E15/E15T SSD controller, which is essentially a PCIe 3.0 version of the E19/E19T models, as found on WD’s SN750 SE, but it’s been updated to replace the E13T. The SSD also comes with Micron’s 176-Layer TLC flash, which is among the best currently available on the market.
The Inland Prime SSDs are available at both 500GB and 1TB capacities. The PCIe 3.0 x4.0 interface allows for speeds up to 3,300/3,000 MBps, but the 500GB model is a bit slower during sequential SLC writes due to diminished NAND interleaving. The E15 controller pushes up to 400,000/480,000 random read/write IOPS at 1TB, but features lower performance metrics at 500GB.
The Inland prime is a typical third-party SSD drive, so it does not come with its own software or any noteworthy utilities. Cloning can be done with any of the free options that are available, like Macrium Reflect, and it may be also possible to update the firmware with an appropriate Phison utility.
The Inland Prime SSD drives perform well and can be an affordable alternative for either a new build or a frugal upgrade, but they are also vulnerable to SSD failures that may lead to critical data inaccessibility. Then computer users will need to contact a professional data recovery services provider to get their irreplaceable documents back.
