Default cheapest ssd yet seen

$33 for a 256G. Cheapest presence, rather a Kingston which
specifically means 3-yr domestic US warrantee. Maybe an 800 Kingston
no. with a human to answer. No DRAM buffering, old rebadged Toshiba
memory, old Pison controller. Material is total bottom of the barrel.
Yet...

Huge sales volume for #1 question - 'will it fit my xyz brand laptop'?
That's $15 for effectively, each for a 125G SSD at twice the volume.
Right now to get by. Yep - that is indeed plenty cheap enough.

Add together two 256G units, however, for approaching $70, and there
the 512G Samsumg, which does on occasion hit the sales price of $80.
And it's bad to boot.

TBW is 40 80 160 on Adata 128, 256, 512G models. That may be 80G
every day for one year writing to the 256G, or 26G daily for the
3-yr-returnable warranty life - however that works from SDD failure
with 79TBW on the 35th month it is returned.

Nobody can write that much daily _needs_ to be the 99.point.9-th
question (though there will be invariably maybe a percentage of
percent that buy a $33/256G Adata and will write that heavily).

Still, Samsung may be approaching 400TBW/5yr warranty - with
everything else about it made flat-out superior. At a difference for
a 512G unit, about $15 additionally, for the Samsung quality.

Quality to be surely committed that you can, each and every day for
the next five years, write 80G of data to your SSD. Yes indeed.

I've just bought and Installed as OS drive, a 'Kingston A400 240GB'.
Paid £38.41 for it with a 2/3 day delivery.
I'm quite happy with it so far.

This morning the A400/256G is on Amazon for 13BP less than you paid at
the conversion rate of USD1.2982

£38.41*1.2982
$49.863862
$33/1.2982
25.4198120475*1.2982
US/33.0000000001
38.41-25.4198120475
12.9901879525

There's also huge amount of accompanying happy reviews also listed.
Been awhile since I called Kingston, an except among computer
products. Assuming I still can, that does mean a lot, customer surety,
far more than a direct quality-grade competitor for component
comparison, matrices of performance, regard, amongst industrial terms
and standards across a present complexity for SSD assemblies.

-
ie the Kingston a400 has a Pison name for the controller and a
published 80T TBW. Western Digital, unless its an Enterprise client,
will not provide that information, nor do some others in the field,
variously to guard against revealing or identifying published material
specifications. Unless someone else disassembles to reveal what's
inside a unit or why, exactly, they're not sure.
