Personally I have stopped upgradation on several PC because I never found an explanation for the dramatic drop in TBW ratings
The move to TLC and then to QLC dramatically affected drive wear. Also some manufacturers lower ratings to reduce warranty costs. It doesn't really matter to the average consumer workload. A 4TB drive with 0.3 drive writes per day is still over 1TB per day. There aren't many workloads that can sustain that nonstop. If you have a workload like that, then you 1. get pricier enterprise stuff, or 2. get more consumer drives than you need and spread writes around, or 3. plan to replace early.
