SSTC HammerHead E18, The SSD With The Most Bang For The Buck
$150 For 2TB Is A Good Deal
SSTC is a Vietnamese based computer retailer which is starting to show up on Amazon, and TweakTown had a chance to review the Hammerhead E18 NVMe 1.4 PCIe 4.0 SSD. The controller is in the name, the well known Phison E18 and the savings comes from the flash, which is Media grade Micron B47R TLC. Surprisingly, at this price point you do indeed get a DDR4 cache, though TweakTown doesn’t specify how much.
The drive is rated for 1600TBW and has a three year warranty, not the best in the business but more than reasonable at less than 10 cents per gigabyte. Performance wise, the drive touts 7,400MB/s random read and 7,000MB/s writes and benchmarks show that to be accurate.
If you need a bit more storage this is a solid choice, as you can see in the full review.
