Even on a budget I'd pay an extra £5.49 for Crucial MX500 250GB. You get an extra 10GB and no doubt, a better reliability/warranty.


EDIT:

Not to mention NAND

I got one. died within 3 month. Replacement died after 2 weeks. Not very reliable. Check reviews.
75% 5*, 14% 4* out of 36 reviews.
Negative reviews seem to be for the 120gb version.
I think outside of the major brands Kingston, Crucial, Sandisk etc.
This one is an alternative if you need to keep costs down.
Wouldn't touch Dreevo, Kingdian though.

Unrelated,.. my silicon power 64g SD card died after a few months no chance of RMA from Amazon.

Surprised about reports of failure, I thought the solid state nature of these drives meant Increased reliability over moving parts
Silicon who......well known make...think maybe I'll stick to trusted makes.
I bought one of these a little while ago, seems fine so far, plus a 3 year warranty
Bought cheap Toshiba ssd before and died after very light usage. Never again always buy main brand. Worth the extra

Probably using all the failed memory chips that the big brands reject

I think you'd be insane to buy this when for £5.49 more you can have a Crucial.

camelcamel Price Tracking show this was £47.35 in October last year. But having read whats been put, do you really want to take the risk.?? This has a 75% 5* on its Amazon Reviews. And if you have any problems Amazon are really good with their returns..

I thought so too. My 4TB external drive died, I took it to a data recovery company and was chatting with the technician asking if SSD was better over HD with moving part. He told me yes and no, a normal HD can most of the time be fixed when they go wrong but apparently the SSD when they fail, they fail for good and it is really difficult to retrieve the data.

I have now learned the hard way, back up you data twice because it is very expensive to get you data back and sometimes not possible. I am now looking a backing up using one of those company selling space on the cloud
