NvME with PLP and performance

Is there a cheaper NvME drive for caching than the SVN3000 series from Synology with power loss protection and same or better performance? (iops, TBW)

Kingston has one NvME with plp but the performance is not as good.

Thank you
Yes, you can use other brands.
When choosing NVMe for caching you need to look at reliability ratings such as DWPD/MTBF. Here are a few on the list
Caching means a lot of read and write operations, unlike regular storage situation.
You would need to look at models with 0.5DWPD and above

970 pro – 0.66DWPD
Seagate FireCuda 510 – 0.7 DWPD
Seagate FireCuda 520 -0.9 DWPD
Seagate IronWolf 525 – 0.7 DWPD
Seagate Firecuda 530 – 0.7 DWPD
Synology SNV3400 – 0.68DWPD
WD Red SN700 – 1.0DWPD

I hope this helps.
