I read that someone should take enterprise ssds instead of consume ones because of the greatly increased iops performance and power loss protection.

So instead of a 870 EVO I would like to choose a enterprise ssd.

What is price wise the best enterprise ssd (sata) that someone should buy? (Used or unused doesn’t matter, what matters is the price, power protection and low energy consumption, it’s for an aio proxmox home server)

Is it correct that datacenter ssds seem to sip over 10x more compared to a 870 evo samsung consumer ssd?!

Energy consumption (datasheet):
Micron 5300 MAX: 3w / 3,9w (read/write)
Intel S3710; 0,6 (idle) / 5,9 Watt (active)
Intel S4520: 1.2 Watt (idle) / 3.7 Watt (active)
Intel S4610: 1,1 (idle) / 3,7 (active)
Samsung 870 Evo (4TB, aspm): 0,03 idle??!! / 2,6 (active max)
Samsung PM 893 (2TB): 1,5 W (idle) / 3,2 (active max)
Samsung SM863 (960GB): 1,3 (idle) / 3,1 (write)

Any tips appreciated!

Micron 5300 or Intel S4520 models are quite good value here at the moment (Australia).
Thats the 1DWPD models.
 
Hard to answer, because used ones vary often in prices.
I got 18x 960 GB Samsung SM863 for 31 euros each. Lowest price I ever encountered.

Are these 2TB 863 for 120 Euro each a good deal?
(I’m asking especially if the drives are healthy enough to use them in a redundant home server?)

You can check Kingston DC* models too, we are using them in combination with Intel S4*.
