Planning to use for a boot drive for a laptop. https://www.amazon.co.uk/SanDisk-PLUS-Sata-2-5-inch-Internal/dp/B07621PNWChttps://www.amazon.co.uk/Kingston-A400-Solid-State-Drive/dp/B01N6JQS8C


Any will do as a boot drive for a laptop, there maybe a couple hundredth of a second difference in real world performance on start up, negligible power consumption difference, and if you're doing very little writing to do drive you'll die before 'it' does.

Can't comment on SanDisk or Kingston but I've installed hundreds of these at work and never had one fail on me. Speed is fantastic too
more expensive than it was 3 weeks ago
Crucial MX300 275GB SSD going for £57 on ebay , much better speed and reliable.

It won't die but in 10 years when 2TB SSDs are £5 you'll probably upgrade.

You can't go wrong with a WD SSD at this price. I have the WD Green SSD …You can't go wrong with a WD SSD at this price. I have the WD Green SSD 120GB (All be it in a M.2 format) and for a boot drive it's brilliant considering it's £40.27.


Actually, you can. The WD Green SSDs have no onboard cache, and as a result they get swamped when writing files.
All these cheap ssd deals...guys stick to samsung. I've had kingston cheap ssd fail on me after like 6 months. It's really not worth buying a cheap wd/kingston/SanDisk drive over a reliable crucial or samsung ssd.
Among all cheap SSD drives, the difference lies in the price and the guarantee (some cheap SSD comes with 5 years). Just try to avoid all models built on 2D TLC NAND memories, obviously targeting 3D TLC NAND designs or more expensive 3D MLC NAND.
Isn't this cheaper on Amazon ? Western Digital SSD Green 120GB 2.5 7mm SATA Gen 3 amazon.co.uk/dp/…96N

I have the 240 gb version. Non probs what so ever as a boot drive.
People here talking about getting this as a boot drive - I reckon it's worth spending £20 more for a 250GB drive, you'll be kicking yourself when you run out of space in a year... Unless you know you're not going to be using much storage at all in which case £40 for an SSD is not a bad deal

Actually it doesn't ring true it depends on your use case - if someone is looking for a cheap deal to boost an old PC then this is fine. Obviously if you want performance and reliability then you will pay the extra for a Samsung but most won't need it.

Case in point, I had an expensive Corsair drive that died after just 2 years of moderate use. I put a cheap 64GB Sandisk that I had lying around as a stopgap and it is running fine almost 4 years later. I will eventually get around to moving onto the 256GB I bought 2 years ago!

Any SSD can fail, it's simply a case that you need to have backups!
Ebuyer... Nope.
If you have 2 operating systems and dual boot say windows & Linux then 120gb gets a bit small especially if you have windows 10 & it's ridiculous regular updates
