If price is all that matters, there is an Adata drive for a £2 less

The A400 seems to have a variable bill of materials. If these units have 2D TLC flash, the MX500 is almost definitely better for endurance (it has 3D TLC). Kingston planned to move these to 3D TLC but you probably can't tell without getting the drive and checking it through SSD-Z... in my opinion it's not worth paying a little less for outgoing tech, especially if reliability is a factor.
Weird!

I posted this just before 14:00 and got the following message from HUKD mods despite it being an AMP seller:

The thread you posted "Kingston SSD A400 240 GB Solid State Drive (2.5 Inch SATA 3)" contains a merchant that isn't permitted on hotukdeals currently

You can find out more about which Amazon sellers are allowed in our feedback thread.....

Thanks so much for posting, we appreciate you taking the time to get involved in the community

Don't know why I waste my time and give up on here!

That comparison is the M500 which the previous generation I have the M500 and the MX500.

The MX500 is a lot better than the M500.

This is the real comparison:

Typical, something dispatched by Amazon isn't allowed but the Chinese junk sites that the mods post stuff from are fine. Makes sense.

Thanks I missed that. Did enter MX500 into google - must have copied the wrong link.

Yes I'd probably avoid Kingston after they pulled that stunt and maybe they're doing it again with the 400?
Want to upgrade an old Sata II laptop. If I search on Kingston SSDs and tick the Seller - Amazon box I find this item “Dispatched from and sold by Amazon” at same price. Having had issues with 3rd party sellers before I’d much prefer Amazon direct. Strangely if I save the item in Wishlist the seller changes to Comtronics who I’ve never heard of. Anyone know what’s happening here?
