Is Pioneer a good brand?

 
When is an SSD anything more than a clone of a reference design? In this case, is Pioneer's SSD any different to a standard Phison E12 OEM product?

Compare the numbers on the PCBs:

  • 00200125E004802E-V1 (Pioneer)
    00200125E004801E (Phison E12 reference design)
I guess Pioneer gets to choose the NAND and SDRAM manufacturers, and perhaps it also customises certain parameters in the firmware, but is there any real point of difference with other OEMs who use the same reference design?
