Dat pricing tho.

I have my doubts that this Phison equipped Corsair MP500 can challenge the Samsung 960 Pro for the performance crown. Yet here we have Corsair pricing them similarly. We'll need to wait on the reviews, but I'm sensing a price adjustment in Corsair's future.

At least we now have more choice in the M.2 NVMe market, so that's a win for all.

They may be trying to cash in on the limited availability of the 960-series drives.

It's good that there is more competition, it'll force the prices down. Phison usually leaves a bad taste in my mouth but their new PCIe-targeted controllers seemed promising enough to take seriously.
