Hi. I was on a Chinese Shopping site(item.jd.com) well know(in china) for their electronics. I have used this site for PC Parts before. The Prices are amazing! My 3TB Hard drive is filling up pretty fast and i would like to get an another solid state drive to put some more demanding games on. When i was looking on this site i found some Very cheap SSDs made by "KingShare" ,"Gloway" "KingMAX" and "Galaxy". I would like to know weather you guys think i should buy these or spend a bit extra on a bigger company, like samsung. for any one who wants to know the cheapest SSD costs 229 RMB(37 dollars for 64GB)while the SanDisk one is 299RMB (48 dollars for 64GB).
thanks!

At Newegg the Samsung 840 evo 120gb is $90. I don't think I would be persuaded to try an unknown to save too little money.

There'd need to be specs and reviews and warranty along with substantial savings.

When buying any piece of hardware, cheaping out at the beginning usually means problems later. Don't even consider. Get a quality brand name SSD. These cheap SSDs usually have the lowest quality memory chips and are an accident waiting to happen. And when they fail, what's your warranty? Quality manufacturers provide 5 year warranty, and some of them even 10 years for certain drives.

Galaxy and Kingmax are well known brands. While i know Kingmax uses crappy memory and don't recommend it for an SSD due to life-span; Galaxy on the other hand used to make video cards but has since "vanished" and now builds other stuff. I've never seen a Galaxy SSD so i have no clue about their performance. If you find some good reviews and the price is decent i would go for it.

Like the man said. If i were absolutely forced under a gunpoint to pick an ssd brand from that list, i would go for kingmax since they are at least known for memory modules. Never tried that cheap ssds, though. But maxwell... never.
