Kingston is a premium brand for RAM and SSDs, like Samsung or Crucial, and usually a lot more expensive than generics like the recent Team Group. They used to have an a bove average warranty with RAM, but not sure if that applies to SSDs.

Picked up some 480gb models. At $28 that is comparable to $24 for the Team Group/Patriot models the other day.

Absolutely, Kingston is one of three brands I trust when it comes to SSDs. Samsung, Western Digital Blue series, and Kingston have never let me down. SanDisk has worked out for me as well, but I've only ever owned one so I can't speak on general reliability.

i have a kingston128gb ssd that i used till it finally crapped out and didnt allow me to write any more to the drive. data is still on it but it hit the write limit after many years in service.

dont think these are the fastest drives oh the market but hard to compete with faster drices at these price points.

SanDisk is just another WD brand they use for memory products like SSDs and sdcards.

Had a Kingston dimm fail on me once and had to warranty it. Relatively painless as I recall but that was 10 years ago. Was definitely faster/better than Samsung and Crucial process.

What would you use such a small drive like this for in an UnRAID server?
