Hi @Brutes _ yes I did open mine up when I got the 480GB NS100 late last year but can't find the pics! - however someone of Reddit says it's a Marvell 88NV1120 controller, a DRAM-less design similar to what's found on a few other drives like the ADATA SU650, it has 3D TLC.
I briefly set mine up as a boot drive and it installed W10 very quickly and performed well, for a budget SSD, performance seemed very similar to my BX500 and Integral P drives - however I haven't actually used the drive in any long terms tests so can't really comment on longer term usage.
Lexar are no longer part of Micron / Crucial, the brand was sold off to a Chinese memory maker a couple years ago, however there's nothing to suggest these aren't ok and I've not read as such. For 120 or 250GB drives these are good value, personally if I was wanting a 1TB drive I'd spend £100 and get a Crucial MX500 or Samsung Evo 860....but for cheap upgrades, especially on secondary machines, these lexar drives should be fine for most users.

Not a bad performer..
..bought to replace a failed Samsung SSD after 4 years use..cheers op
Lexar... who makes the memory for them?
Or the controller for that matter?
I really rate Lexar USB drives as a brand. Are these just as good? Need a 500gb SSD don't know whether to buy one of these or a Crucial one.

I just opened up my NS100 480GB drive and the memory chips are labelled Lexar and has a Marvel 88NV1120 controller, the circuit board is tiny filling less than half the 2.5" case. I presume the memory is made by parent company Longsys who bought the Lexar brand, on my 480GB drive there are 2 memory chips with empty space on the other side for 2 more chips for the 960GB drives...

Hi there, I have only just got an Adata SU630 but not used it yet, to be honest a few comments on here suggested it might not be as reliable as other drives but I've no personal experience. The Lexar NS100 is another I own but haven't used it in longer term use but it does seem fine. The drives I've used the most are Samsung Evo 830, 840 and 850, a load of Integral P series, a number of Crucial MX and BX drives and a few Sandisk Ultras... I've not had any fail or go bad yet. I think the main thing to remember is that if an SSD fails it dies almost instantly without any warning so backups are essential.

Personally for any non important PC like an old machine being upgraded to make usable then I'd get any drive listed above or the Adata or Lexar.... for any critical or heavy use machine then I'd get the MX500 or Evo 860...having said that, my work laptop has got the BX500 for nearly 2 years and it's been fine and gets a hammering daily.
