Which SSD M.2 NVME to use for plotting?

I have just looked at 3 NVME M.2 Gen 4 SSDs. Which one shall I buy? I have read that Corsair doesn’t work properly on longterm reading and writing. Samsung has a low TBW. And from another thread about another version of Seagate SSD ( Barracuda) there was apparently a problem.

Seagate FireCuda 520 2 TB, SSD NVME M.2 Gen 4.
Read: 5000 MB/s
Write: 4400 MB/s
TBW: 3600

Corsair Force MP600 2 TB, SSD NVME M.2 Gen 4.
Read: 4950 MB/s
Write: 4250 MB/s
TBW: 3600

Samsung 980 PRO 2 TB, SSD NVME M.2 Gen 4.
Read: 7000 MB/s
Write: 5100 MB/s
TBW: 600

Can somebody help me?

I don’t think there is a right or wrong answer here, you need to look at the numbers and decide what you want…

these read/write speeds are correct for the first short burst, then they drop off like crazy, hence why they are so slow.

Rocket (not the plus one) are pick of the bunch for me, high sustained, good TBW, no SLC. You can get a P5510 for roughly the same price as 2 rockets but not sure how it compares vs temp1/2 on rockets.
