How do these fair in comparison to the usual brands? eg Sandisk, Kingston or Samsung
Google suggests the part number PI480GS25SSDR is a 3 year old SSD model.

All of these cheaper SSDs perform more or less the same. There is very little difference between them. They wont have the performance of the Samsung or Crucial drives which cost around £110 for the same size.

Options are basic SSD fro £84-90. Mid-tier ie Adata costs £97 and is a step up from this as it has newer longer lasting memory, then you have the top tier drives at £107.

Previously I purchased the higher performance drives up to 250 gb drives (£66), but because of the price difference for the 500gb drives I paid £84 for a 480gb ssd this time round.

This is an ancient SSD drive - at least 3 years old. I paid less for a newer drive although I suspect performance will be the same.

Read speed is on par with most drives so for most uses including boot drive use it will be fine.
Write speed is 3x slower than the better SSDs so not much better than many mechanical drives!

would this be good as an external drive for an xbox for faster loading times?

were do you get all of that info about being 3 times slower that the better makes? 545mb/s write speed for this one, lol

The information is posted elsewhere in this thread: The supplier provided speeds in this case are not based on reality. They are theoretical speeds. They are shown to be unachievable on this drive.

Look at the real world usage tests to see how this drive performs badly compared to the Samsung Evo 850. The Crucial MX500 will perform slightly better than the Samsung Evo 850. The better performing Samsung Evo 860 costs significantly more.

The Crucial and Samsung drives have Dram memory which allows much faster throughput of data. The slower drives dont have dram memory but instead use a cache on the same memory used for the data, which is slower and causes a bottleneck of data, particularly when large files are being worked on.

I also looked at Amazon reviews and other reviews and users have confirmed that it performs badly when writing large files. Still it works fine as a boot drive. Although for this price I think there are better newer alternatives.

I would use this as a storage drive for 'in use' games. Be good for that ..

It stands out from other cheap drives in terms of IOPS (notice low buffer size, higher buffers give more similar results), it is worth paying more for a more consistent low end SSD
