The Amazon reviews (https://www.amazon.com/Kingston-960GB-Solid-SA400S37-960G/dp/B079XC5PVV) are stellar.

My first SSD about 10 years ago was a Kingston A400 480GB model. I worked in a large tech company and everyone got one. Mine outlived my workstation and I never heard complaints from anyone else. All that said, it's almost certain that these are assembled from different components than then, but I'm sure that Kingston wouldn't significantly reduce their reliability.

On the other hand: https://www.reddit.com/r/buildapc/comments/bs4vhp/did_anyone_elses_kingston_a400_fail

If reliability is key for you then go with Samsung. You'll pay more but that's how the cookie crumbles.

No, I don't think so. Crucial MX500 is faster than this SSD, not that I have used any of these but I am saying this just by comparing their specifications.

IMHO Spend the extra $20 and get a MX500 with DRAM. You will be much happier.
This has been regular price for the very comparable PNY 1TB

Kingston 960GB is QLC. PNY can come with QLC or TLC.

Might be the best reviews I've ever seen on an Amazon product: 4.8 stars and 150K+ reviews.

They don't even compare, the Crucial is top tier with DRam, this is in same category as all those Adata and Team group.

Though previously a person commented in this thread, that is a chance this could be QVC which is very slow when the capacity starts to fill.

I've installed literally dozens of these without an issue or a failure.

They are reasonably fast but I'm sure there are faster. Even the cheaper ones are bumping against the SATA limit anyway.

If you're into performance you're not using Sata anyway but if thats you're primary concern move on. For speedy semi bulk storage this is a great deal.

Currently own 2x of these Kingston SSDs, but in the 240GB variant. They've held up for the past 2 yrs, but I don't put stock into them as my main daily driver since I've delegated mine for non-vital, insignificant tasks. If you're looking for somewhere to store your Steam library then this could work IMHO.

The 480gb is the best price point imo, but yeah like others have said, low-tier ssd, don't put an OS on it. Bought a couple of these myself in the past for 20 bucks for the 240gb (which is the price now)
