Can anyone give me some advise on Hectron ssd drives as I'm looking for a 240gb & have seen the Hectron ones on Amazon , are they any good ? What should I look out for ? Any help would be appreciated.

Never heard of them to be honest, probably a well known company just rebranding? I go for Samsung ssds personally

I have seen a lot of good reviews on Amazon but I don't trust their reviews

Samsung have a load of different types or names & quite confusing also expensive, I was hoping to find a cheap and cheerful one but hard to find

Not very cheerful if your "cheap" SSD spits its dummy ! How valuable is the stuff that's on your HD to you ? Is it worth saving a few quid ?

I'm only going to save operating system and video editing software on it , as for anything I edit will be saved on hdd, which Samsung would you recommend?
Nah, Samsung are very overpriced these days. There are plenty of major companies offering drives much cheaper.

I bought a Hynix SL301 a few months ago and a quick check on Amazon shows that's still among the cheaper drives. Hynix are a big company, they make the flash memory inside a lot of SSDs.

The Hectron ones will probably be fine and use standard controllers and flash but don't expect anything like after sales support from them. If the design is shown to have any problems, like Samsung's 840 Evo did, then don't expect to get a fix for it.

Read this - it seems to equate Hectron to SanDisk in terms of quality.

​No I agree, ssd drives have come along way from the original ocz ones I had that kept failing, the name isn't always important

Thanks for the input guys, going to try the Hectron x1 , the Hynix is same price as Samsung but has good reviews too, but because I'm on a budget I'm going for hectron.
Hey #MaxRazor have you tried hectron x1 ? how does it work?

I think you've just fallen for some astroturfing. It's a tiny bit suspicious that the guy behind that article signed up just to write it, and has never posted anything since.
