Even if the value of the software is subtracted from the retail price, the X300s is still expensive.

Of course, the retail prices may not tell the whole truth since corporations are likely to buy the drives in bulk with a discount, but as it stands the retail prices at least are too high to make the X300s a good value relative to competing offerings.

SanDisk X300s (512GB) Review

Anyway, it looks like I will have to run some more tests to figure out a way to better characterize the performance benefits of hardware accelerated encryption because I believe the scores above do not give an accurate picture of the difference.
eDrive is a good (and free) alternative if you happen to have a system that meets the requirements, but otherwise it is a pain to get working, so I certainly see why corporations will gladly pay for ECS and other optimized encryption tools.

SanDisk Announces X300s SSDs

However, I'm fairly confident that it is a Marvell's 88SS9189 because the X210 used a 88SS9187, and the lower DEVSLP power numbers suggest the 9189 as it brought some DEVSLP optimizations at the silicon level.
The M.2 version will only be available in up to 512GB, which is due to the fact that SanDisk has opted for a single-sided design in order to make the drive slightly thinner and thus more suitable for Ultrabook designs.
