Found 5th Jan
Seems like a lot of GB per £, although I have no experience with Netac. Anybody have one of these SSD's?

I did a little research and it reports to use the SM2258X, which is the same one that the Crucial MX series use. So that's a plus...There is also a 4% off code: ADD4OFFI'm tempted, but I will resist!


Never assume because it uses the same chip as a branded drive it's gonna be ok.

I bet this drive started out at 1tb/960gb but due to faulty memory sectors/areas, got reduced to 720gb. Wouldn't even risk my steam library on this piece of junk.

Seems like a good price and storage but I don't trust the website it's from
This is gonna be quite a polarising post, I think. I voted hot though, because even though there's a slim chance of paying duty, that the drive is lower quality, that it will take a while to arrive etc. It's still decent price for a lot of storage. Good for quick console loading!

Probably some cheap ssd with no support from the manufacture or seller.

You took the time to comment - take the time to read what I posted... No assumptions made.
Yet another cheap SSD from Shenzhen, China. Good luck claiming on the warranty when it goes wrong.
Could probably store games, movies and other media of sorts, but I would not put an OS or any valuable data on this.

Wouldn't even be surprised if the reported size was faked and the actual capacity was much lower...

Sorry dude, it was a general comment.
Best thing to do is reformat drive and do read write tests... I have had a for different builds some good reliable SSD from aliexpress but you really got to sit and read the reviews
Nothing wrong with Netac as a make, they have been around for a while, but the supplier in this case makes this deal just a fantasy, this price is surely missing the taxes that will be added on when customs finds it
I have one of these but smaller capacity in my old Linux desktop, along with a 1TB hdd ... all my important documents live on the hdd. I do Timeshift of the OS whenever I decide to upgrade the kernel.
Nothing to worry about so far.
I wouldn't trust the site with my payment details and I wouldn't trust the drive with my important files. I've never heard of a 720gb drive before which is odd but not necessarily an indicator of a bad drive however it's not uncommon to see Chinese brands using lower quality/lower capacity drives and flashing the drive in such a way so that they appear bigger than they are so that the drive seems to be good until the user fills past its actual capacity then files begin to get corrupted. Also the title for the drive claims 500MBps speeds but the first review on the site shows a crystal disk mark run where the highest result was 285MBps. I'd buy just about any other drive before this thing.

Other than the fact this could be a failed 960GB drive repurposed, even if that's not the case you could get stung for VAT and customs, which could bring the price up to the £75 mark, give or take.

I know where I'd rather put my money and it's not here.
