Got 1 of these drives for my pc 6 months ago. Can't fault it. Works really well and fast read/write speeds.

I've had many SSD's from little known manufacturer's tbh and haven't had one fail on me or friends(that I've built a PC for).

The only thing I can say is, I'm assuming that due to the non-moving parts of an SSD the less that can go wrong?
It also comes with a 3 year Warranty for a bit of peace of mind!

I've got one of these and had it die on me after 6 months of very light use.
The seller had been good though and agreed to replace it.

Well, sort of: assuming the manufacturer uses an off the shelf controller and that their PCB has no obvious design or quality issues,and if they used good quality NAND, then there is little that can physically go wrong.
However, the biggest problem with SSDs has actually usually been the firmware and this is where a small manufacturer can go wrong by either not bothering to do firmware updates (actually more accurately not passing the firmware from the controller manufacture on to the customer).
Still, at least with this being 2.5" SATA heat shouldn't be a big problem. Would not trust a so-so manufacturer making a M.2 drive to not to make a design with heat problem which limit its longevity.
For such a small saving I would avoid this drive.

It might be a good drive but it's not really much of a saving though. I know that we have to make do with what we have regarding SSD prices right now but I can't get too excited over a £2 drop on a 120GB from a not so well known manufacturer.
