Is KIOXIA ECERIA M.2 NVME SSD good for Synology caching

Is KIOXIA ECERIA M.2 NVME SSD good for Synology caching?

These SSD seem to be a qood value for money. But one year later one after another started to show warning messages. Short answer to this one is a NO.


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


Synology SNV3400    – 0.68DWPD


Seagate FireCuda 510   – 0.7 DWPD
Seagate IronWolf 525 – 0.7 DWPD
Seagate Firecuda 530    – 0.7 DWPD
Seagate PS5 Game drive – 0.7 DWPD


Seagate FireCuda 520  -0.9 DWPD
WD Red SN700              – 1.0DWPD


I hope this helps.
