REVISED-Not good for MACs!) Good deal on great value 1TB NVME SSD SK Hynix Gold P31 - $115

Revised--Clay seems to have the right of it, that this SSD has problem with internal use in a Mac, and in Tbolt enclosures.

This seems to be the latest hotness:

Anon,

Good catch! With the discount from amazon.com, it makes for a decent deal. If it's not available, an Inland Premium model with similar specs can be had for $124.99 from Micro Center.

Never heard of SK Hynix. I can vouch for Inland Premium. Solid SSDs for the price.

Hynix is huge. Apple has used them for ram for many many years.

Here ya go, Hynix
Hynix is the world's second-largest memory chipmaker...and the world's
3rd-largest semiconductor company...
The company's major customers include Apple, Asus, Dell, HP Inc., and Hewlett Packard Enterprise...


A lot of the surplus server memory I've bought for cMP's was Hynix OEM.
I too will vouch for the Inland SSDs!

had issues with this drive on a Mac. Both internally in a hackintosh, and externally in the OWC NVME thunderbolt enclosure on my 2020 MacBook Pro (intel). Had to return it. Other folks have had issues with this drive on the Mac as well, read amazon reviews.

Good company, but the product isn't yet ready for primetime, IMHO.

Good catch, Clay!

I've been using my externally in a USC-C case, with no problems, so I wouldn't have run into these issues.
