    The price goes up and down like every 30 minutes.

    When you think about it the latency on these is probably amazing, since the storage is so close to the controller electrically wise.

    So what you're saying is, using 4 of these in a striped config is probably not the safest course of action? If modules fail as often as you suggest you basically have a whole bunch of volatile raid 0's on hand.

    I'd only ever use RAID0 for irrelevant or temporary data. For home use one of these wouldn't be a too bad setup for a ZFS L2ARC/SLOG or some other equivalent purpose. For work I'd grab two in order not to waste time.

    Received mine today. Out of the three I ordered, one had lost a capacitor on the way. The same thing happened last time I ordered a bunch of these cards (from a different seller). Argh. A couple more minutes of packaging would have fixed this..

    For the good part: all the modules have 100% of ssd life left in them! They do have a few years of runtime on them but must have been rather quiet on the IO front..

    Can you post some quick crystaldiskbench numbers from a single module and then some numbers from all 4 striped?

    Sorry, I don't use windows. I can post some fio results or such if you have a specific thing you'd like run.

    Got mine the other day, finally testing them. Most of my drives have either 24 TB or 78 TB (~24,000 or ~77/78,000) written, most are 100% health with a small number showing as 99% health in crystaldiskinfo even though their GB written is lower. All roughly around 28,000 hours POT, with 73-76~ power on count.

    Can anyone report what their numbers are? I suspect they'll be roughly the same.

    I have one I got that I can let go of but haven’t had a chance to even test it. I am out of the country till Friday, if you want it, send me a pm and we can make a deal.

    So I bought some spares from a member on here (they work fine btw) that I wanted to use in my build because the member said they were all %100 health (which they were).

    During my progress of getting my other 8 all up to 100% by switching out modules, can anyone tell me what kind of a condition would have to occur for the drive healths of these things to drop to 99% from 100%? Basically what I am doing is looking through all of the adapters for 99% health modules, and then making notes of serial numbers, disassembling, and swapping out until I have 8 adapters that are completely 100% across the board. This bugs me because the ones with 99% health do not have anything different about them in Crystaldiskinfo that indicates any reason why the health percentage dropped...

    Any thoughts?

    Another follow up on this...swapping out the modules is super annoying. I stripped screws on 2 of them because they're so ridiculously over-torqued. And then re-installing the pair of disks onto the ribbon module that connects the storage to the controller is kind of awkward. Not the easiest things ever. I would say there's a good chance I'd avoid these in the future or at least buy just one to dick around with, not 8 or more like I had.

    So you decided to switch out parts of the 4 modules per card to get full 100% drive health on all of them, for no reason other than OCD, then complained about stripping the screws on 2 of them?

    Uhhh, yeah? Lol. I mean I plan on using them in a converged manner. So I want the 8 in use to be as in relatively top shape as possible. I don't think this is unreasonable, really, if you consider past posts from other members who have complained about modules randomly dying. In a way, if those 99 percenters were at some stage of fault, I did myself a favor pre-emptively by swapping them out an ensuring all 32 modules across 8 devices are at 100%. This is pure speculation but I'm okay with it.

    No, not at all unreasonable. 99% drive health vs 100% is a tremendous indicator for the work that you put in, and later complained about, and are now still defending.
