Reliable ssd

The Samsung is the most reliable one.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi guys. I came across 3 ssds that I can easily purchase on eBay. They are the Samsung 860 EVO, the WD blue ssd, and the Crucial MX500, which is not as common as the other two. They have similar read/write speeds. But which one is the most reliable and has the longest life span?

I have rarely seen better SSD prices on eBay versus sites like Amazon or Newegg.

If I got something wrong, correct me. I'd appreciate a correction a lot more than sarcasm.

My explanation as to why I said the Samsung drive is better is as follows (take what I say with a grain of salt):

The chips Samsung make are well known for reliability and the build quality of Samsung drives are brilliant. I own an MX500 250GB and it just doesn't feel as well put together as the 850 EVO in my brother's PC. 

If you want value and quality the MX500 is definitely the way to go, but if you just want quality and reliability then I'd still say 860 EVO.
