Right now at Newegg, the KingSpec XG 7000 4TB SSD is available for its lowest price to date, based on price history data from PCPartPicker. It's been going for around $299 lately but Newegg has it listed for $181 with a limited $15 gift card offer which takes the price down to $166.
It's worth noting that this is for a somewhat lesser-known brand and we have not had the opportunity to review this drive for ourselves. That said, this deal is worth taking note of as SSD prices are expected to skyrocket in the near future.
This offer is for the KingSpec XG 7000 4TB edition, but this device is also available in smaller capacities. All of the drives in this line use PCIe Gen 4 x4 interfaces and have an M.2 2280 form factor. They are also designed with 3D NAND memory. This edition can reach read/write speeds as high as 7,400/6,600 Mbps.
According to KingSpec, this 4TB SSD has an MTBF of 1 million hours. It's supported by Newegg's 30-day return policy as well as a 3-year warranty from KingSpec that voids should the drive reach 2,400TBW. Visit the KingSpec XG 7000 4TB SSD product page at Newegg for more details and purchase options.

hopefully there will be a review soon, need to know if it's guaranteed to be the MAP1602(A) or some other <Mod Edit> Maxio controllerReply
I passed on this and instead got a Team MP34 because the Kingspec XG 7000 uses the infamous Innogrit IG5236 controller.Reply
However, looking at the newegg reviews, it looks to be reliable if you slap a heatsink on it.
from what I'm seeing the XG 7000 uses something from Maxio, probably the MAP1602(A)Reply
the IG5236 seems to be on the Pro version, which is kind of why I asked if anyone was able to confirm or deny this
