You can select other capacities from drop down menu.

I think this is excellent price for cheap 180GB SSD. These drives not going to set SSD speed records but definitely much better than traditional HDD. Ideal upgrade for you cheap laptop.


I got 2 Kingspec drives (different models) and so far they are working well (nearly 1 yr daily use)

Doesn't sound good even if it's got warranty. What did you go for in the end and what price?
I went for Evo 850 and yes, it's more expensive, but it's working like a dream

Well I'm using 2 of them nearly a year (daily) so far no issues. Btw there was a product recall from them few months ago due to bad batch. They asked my friend to return his SSD for new replacement. It's working fine after that.

I can vouch for that I bought one of those a few months back for games storage, the 500GB version .

I've ordered one anyway as it's for somebody and for that price what's not to like. If it goes faulty can it be replaced without any problems?

I never had to contact them. There CS seems good according to reviews on Amazon. They seems responding quickly to issues.
The Kingston 120gb ssd is about this price, personally would feel safer with that and ordered one
Check the reviews - this is one of the worst SSDs out there. It's TLC technology as well, so don't expect it to last long, especially if you constantly write to disk and not just read.

Do you write at least 75gb a day? Yes then TLC is not for you. If not this is excellent. Actually this drive have positive reviews.
75GB/day? Even a MLC would fail within a year at that rate. TLC has slower read and write speeds and they have 5,000 erase cycles per cell while MLC has 10,000. So in general MLC is on average twice reliable/faster than TLC. I personally value my data, do backups constantly and I would never trust my data to this drive.

Freebie of choice is usually Macrium Reflect although I'm sure someone else will maybe have other options. I personally use Acronis True Image but that costs money

Agree with the above, I've used Macrium Reflect a couple of times and it's worked without any problems, even when cloning to a smaller disk.

can you use that to clone everything important from one PC to another? Just bought the cheap Itzoo refurb i7 £287 (see hot deals tonight) for a bit of a hobby play, would quite like to use it for a month or so to assess but have all my data to hand on the new PC instead of constantly going back to original PC to find stuff
Think the £70 250gb MX500 crucial is better value . Its not much more and faster plus longer warranty.
Big thanks for the advice on Macrium Reflect

Much appreciated

I'm not sure that's a good idea - generally you clone to provide and exact copy of the hard drive to put onto a new drive / SSD for the same computer.

If you cloned computer A for use on computer B there would be potential hardware / driver issues unless both PC's had the same or similar hardware. It can be done but you might find it takes time to sort out any software driver issues because the new PC has different hardware and Windows needs to be educated about those changes. If it were me I would backup my files (copy them to a spare USB stick) then setup my new PC from scratch and then import my backed up files. That method won't copy programs though, just files.
