Kingston is a good budget brand.
>>
>>51559911
Will it work reliably though or should I bump it up to a Samsung sdd or something?
>>
>>51559845
No.
>>51559911
No it's not.
>>
>>51559949
Because?
>>
>>51559911
Those aren't euros anon..
>>
>>51559965
My bad. Only slept a few hours.

OP, see >>51557796
If you want reliability, you should always go for the Samsung.

Read reviews.
They've been pulling bait and switch.
Start out with an excellent product, then a few months in, after all the reviews are out, switch the internals to a shit one.

Is there not a San Disk Ultra 2 480GB for £80?

And here's some actual evidence.

my first ssd was kingston, it died after 2.8~ years, got a refurbished ocz vortex 3 as a replacement that has been going fine for 2.2~ years

coincidentally, my second 2 ssds were both sandisk (well after I thought the sandisk ssds weren't reliable meme being old enough to not be true) and both died around the same time out of warranty, never buy sandisk and never buy cheap kingstons
>>
>>51560042
There is mate, £83.50

Is SanDisk a better brand then?
>>
>>51560073
Yes.
I've heard they are fine.

>>51560061
Begs to differ, but that's just anecdotal.
>>
>>51559845

Its shit. Dont buy it. A friend of mine had the same and it failed after 10 months.
>>
>>51560090

anecdotal it may be but sandisk have a well earned reputation of not having reliable ssd flash chips/controllers from when ssds were hitting the mainstream in 2008-2010, I bought mine at the end of 2011 when they were getting praise for not having unreliable ssds anymore

I'd pass it off as just anecdotal evidence too, but I bought 2 of the same ssd on the same day and both were used very lightly (one almost barely used), both died around the same time around the time warranty was ended, and both failed in a way that no data was recoverable

at least when my kingston died I only lost minimal data as data "written" to the disk wouldn't persist on reboots
>>
240gb ssd drives cost that much when not on sale these days. Avoid kingston, they did a bait and switch, not sure if they switched back after the complaints but it should be enough to avoid getting one. I've had a few ssds and the ones I haven't had some sort of issue with are samsung models.
