    As title really. I am currently looking to get another SSD for a second PC and was looking at the crazy prices from aliexpress, gearbest etc
    Just wondered if anyone has had one previously and if you had issues with reliability?

    Looking at 240GB SSD's for just over £35 delivered.

    To be fair they probably all get banged out the same factories anyway but thought I'd ask first :-)

    Cheers

    Mate to be honest for the sake of £5 just get one from ebuyer or similar

    I bet if you search you could get one cheaper too.
    they have 120gb for £20

    Wow . They dropped quite a bit since I last looked. Fuck buying from China :-) Cheers buddy.

    Last time I looked I think it was about £50 for a 240GB

    Funilly enough in the end I did get one from china because the next day I got an email with a discount code from Aliexpress or Gearbest, forget which.
    It turned out I got a 390GB SSD for £36 delivered. Couldnt come close in the UK for that capacity etc

    Already received and running fine. Time will tell but for that money in the UK was looking at 240GB which is tiny imho

    Iím after a few 2tb ones for the server but the cost is just ridiculous.

    I might just buy some of the new 14tb drives when the price comes down a bit.
