    My point is they work for Kol12, just because you had a bad experience doesnt mean everyone will
    Hi,
    I didn't say they didn't work
    I said I return 3 because they were no where close to read/ write spec's.

    Hi,
    Yeah he posted a rough number for read speed and I posted the actual spec sheet they advertise.

    I agree with Dude, we need to break away from what we perceive as 'safe haven' brands because other brands are doing good things too.

    Anything other than Samsung SSD's is crap is not true. Take at look at Tom's Hardware Adata XPG SX8200 Pro "A Samsung Killer" review. In many cases the SX8200 Pro is whipping the Samsung EVO. It uses a very sought after high end Silicon Motion SM2262EN controller.

    OUR VERDICT

    At the 2TB capacity, Adata’s XPG SX8200 Pro is a highly competitive SSD that trades blows with Samsung’s finest. For the price, it is a solid pick.

    @ThrashZone should note:

    I certainly have my preference for go-to brands, but I will deviate if there is a good reason too. Case in point, when building my son's new gaming PC, my plan was to put in a 1TB Samsung Evo 970, and I think they were running about $200 at the time. Found a great deal on the Western Digital Black Sn750 1TB for $129. Turns out it's specs matched the Evo 970+ which was about $219. Therefore, I ended up buying my son 2 of the 1TB Western Digital Black SN750's for about $265. Benches around 3470 on read, 3000 on writes, with IOPS in the 515k-560k region.

    For SSD's I go Samsung or Intel
    For video cards: always Evga
    For power supplies: either seasonic or corsair
    For memory: almost always G.Skill
    Mobos: Always Asus or Gigabyte
    Cases: Antec, Coolermaster, or nzxt.
    CPUs: No preference. Whatever is kicking ass at the time.

    With me and SSDs it depends on which machine it's for.
    For my 24/7 go to machine, it needs to be Samsung for the system disk, for all the writes & use it gets, specially cause of the browsers, but also the updates. Samsung have the best life span.

    For my other less used systems, I use San Disk SSDs, they're fast, just not as long as a lifespan, but cheaper($€$) also

    Oh yeah, I forgot that I have a 240GB PNY and a 500GB Sandisk SSD as goof around disks, I put them into boxes and play and test with them.

    I've never worried about writes on my SSD's. I have an Intel X25-G2 80GB that's about 11 years old and it still works. An 80GB drive today is pretty much useless. I find they will long be outgrown as far as capacity goes before they hit the max write cycle. (at least for my usage).
