Yes, that self same SSD from that self same company. It’s been running W10 faultlessly for over a year now I think. ( touch wood!! ) I’ve got everything else on a spinner.May 5, 2020 at 7:48 am #42886Participantjohnbarry@johnbarryForumite Points: 4,618
I do have the 120GB and also have the 240GB from the same company and they run supa. The 240GB seems only £7 dearer.

Ditto the above, running Raspberry Pi projects, another acting as a D-drive for a games machine. Buy with some confidence that it starts out the same as named brands.May 5, 2020 at 11:17 am #42888ParticipantJayCeeDee@jayceedeeForumite Points: 5,638
In actual fact PM started a topic with that very drive 2 years ago and a lot of people got on board with it.May 6, 2020 at 10:11 pm #42908ParticipantMark Turner@turner74Forumite Points: 904
Its to go into work mates pc from my previous topic his wife liked the speed of the pc prior to the previous ssd being killed off by either old age or dodgy electrics or a combination of them both more likely the latter. Storage wise it is more than enough the previous one only had windows, office and spotify on and a few office files. I shall get one ordered.May 7, 2020 at 7:05 am #42912ParticipantDave Rice@ricedgForumite Points: 9,545
I’ve tried all the cheap ones on Amazon, like TCSunbow, Asenno, KingDian etc. and they’ve all been fine. I’ve also used the more mainstream Integral, Adata & PNY but if there’s only a couple of quid in it I will go for the WD Green, Kingston or SanDisk.
TBH its hard to tell the difference between all the 2.5″ SSDs (and their M2 equivalents), the difference comes when you move to an NVMe and again to the PCIe Gen3 x 4 versions. I’ve never seen the need to splash out on a Samsung Evo though.
