M.2 drives using Low Density Parity Check codes for ECC functionality

So from what I read a select few M.2 Nvme drives use LDPC per below.

Adata XPG SX8200 - The SX8200 Pro supports LDPC (Low-Density Parity-Check) error correcting code technology to detect and fix a wider range of data errors for more accurate data transfers and a longer SSD lifespan. Part # ASX8200PNP-1TT-C, 1 TB.

Also the Sabrent 1TB rocket (SB-Rocket-1TB) lists their drive on Newegg as having ECC
capability with I’m assuming the same LDPC tech. Couldn’t find any details on their website or elsewhere of what they’re using. Since it has better specs than the Adata drive its the one I went with.

I’m curious if anyone has any information or preference for one drive over the other? I didn’t find Samsung showing anything for this capability on their 970 EVO even though its a great drive as well. It maybe built in and just not advertised I dunno?

This guy explains LDPC really well. I’d never heard of it before but I’ve been out of the loop for a long time anyway :blush: This is for my TR build detailed in another thread if anyone is curious.

I do need a couple more drives for a Raid array sometime in the future so I’d like to pick the best drives for reliability and speed. Interested in anyone’s thoughts on this!
