I wish I trusted lesser known brands but I've been burned with two SSD's from two different Slickdeals where it's "great deal, brand seems legit" yet they die. Spending days emailing snail mail support isn't fun, especially when they give up ie it's dead, they can't help you. It's a gamble. My Samsung SSDs on the other-hand keep moving along without flaw.

I know Slickdeals has a "just buy, dont think" mentality, and I'm sure people are going to respond that they've never had an SSD fail and all of theirs are generic (very possible) but the chances of this failing over a hugely popular SSD brand such as Samsung is a night and day difference.

I'd rather spend a bit more and have extreme confidence that my data is safe vs not knowing if one day I turn my PC on and the drive wont boot.

I would definitely not say that Slickdeals has a "just buy, don't think" mentality... People post fakespot, camelx3 links etc. Every refurb HDD deal has people warning of the potential dangers. A large part of what brings SDers together as a community is research. I think I agree with the spirit of your statement though, in that I believe people tend to think less as the number of votes a deal gets goes up, thinking that others have done their research for them.

Either way, "Just buy, don't think mentality" is an oversimplification and an insult to the community.

Whether or not this particular SSD is reliable or a good value though, I can't say.

Reviews say this SSD gets very hot, even with the heatsink installed... so, I'd be careful putting into a laptop or other confined enclosure...

All newer gen and anytech has the chance to die. Ive been burned by known as good brands and adata isnt exactly samsung but surely not no name

And btw the ONLY ssd i ever had give me issues...yep samsung ... and ive had prob every brand. Multiple 1st,2nd gen ocz, corsair, micron/crucial...toshiba, hp, heck even seagate ssd still goin strong...

Its new not refurb so u have a warranty. My rule is no new wacky no name brands with no rep and no refurbs. Otherwise cheapest possible decent performer because all drives are consumables, based on usage and wear

BTW IMO a refurb is never a deal - only a bigger risk/liability for normally not enough reward

I'd stick to the 2.5 Crucial MX500 or Samsung EVO only. The new 960 EVO is a bit all over the place especially after reading the review on storagereview which is the best out there. The MX is cheaper and I'm picking up a 500 gig for $135 but could drop down in the $120 range in a month or two or a deal that pops up.

I've had this thing since the last deal. It's had nothing but solid up times since I bought it. it also works way faster than any desktop processor can make use of.

great deal but these days with only one m.2 on most MBs you really want 512 or even 1TB. At least that's my experience. 256 will be OK for some and if so go for it!
