NVMe (m.2, u.2, pcie) with PLP for storage spaces in Server 2019

So my Freenas is my true workhorse for storage, but I'd like to get some hands-on with storage spaces in server 2019.

I've done some reading and come to the conclusion that getting SSDs that work *correctly* in storage spaces is a bit tricky, and simply having PLP may not be enough. I'm not looking to do S2D since this is a solo box. Ideally looking for NVMe drives in the ~500GB to 1TB "class" that are easily available on Ebay for a reasonable price. Intended use is for tiered storage using storage spaces.
