Which SSD should I get?

Recommended Posts

Hey there everyone. So I'm pretty much a noob when it comes to buying SSDs and that's why I turned here. So I found a couple of SSDs at what I believe is a fair price on Amazon. 

I want to get at least a 500GB SSD but I could go for a 1TB simply to have more storage. I'll post the links to the products below.


- (1TB Silicon Power $89.99) https://www.amazon.com/Silicon-Power-Performance-Internal-SP001TBSS3A55S25/dp/B07B4G19X3/ref=sr_1_6?keywords=1tb%2Bssd&qid=1558584921&s=gateway&sr=8-6&th=1

- (1TB Samsung QVO 860 $108) https://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Inch-Internal-MZ-76Q1T0B-AM/dp/B07L3D19MY/ref=sr_1_4?keywords=1tb+ssd&qid=1558585195&s=gateway&sr=8-4

- (1TB Samsung EVO 860 $150) https://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Inch-Internal-MZ-76E1T0B-AM/dp/B078DPCY3T/ref=sr_1_3?keywords=1tb+ssd&qid=1558585195&s=gateway&sr=8-3

- (500GB Samsung EVO 860 $78) https://www.amazon.com/Samsung-500GB-Internal-MZ-76E500B-AM/dp/B0781Z7Y3S/ref=sr_1_4?keywords=512gb%2Bssd&qid=1558585269&s=gateway&sr=8-4&th=1

- (500GB Silicon Power $50) https://www.amazon.com/Silicon-Power-Performance-Internal-SP512GBSS3A55S25/dp/B07997QV4Z/ref=sr_1_3?keywords=512gb+ssd&qid=1558585269&s=gateway&sr=8-3


I was thinking of getting the 500GB Silicon Power one for $50, but I have never heard of that brand and I'm not sure if I can trust it. It has 4 and a half stars out of 600+ reviews, but I'm not too sure. My next option was to get the 500GB Samsung Evo for $78 mostly because I know Samsung is a good brand. Then my third option was the 1TB Silicon Power for $90. Then the $108 then $150. I'm not sure which to get, Samsung or Silicon Power. Honestly, I'm trying to stick to a budget so Silicon sounds like the way to go, but I don't want to buy something with low quality and have to get a new one. I would go for Samsung but it's a bit more expensive. This goes for both the 500gb and 1tb models. I was thinking maybe dish out some bigger bucks and go for the 1tb samsung QVO for 108 but if there is no real difference between that and the 1tb silicon power, I'll go for the Silicon Power.


Basically, is Silicon Power a good buy, or should I go for Samsung? I plan on using the SSD for gaming, the OS (Windows 10), game development, 3D modeling, graphic design (Illustrator, Photoshop). So what do you guys think? Your feedback is very greatly appreciated and I will take it into account. Thank you so much! 


Here's the SSDs that I found that I have to choose from. https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/H1J60UU9TY5D?ref_=wl_share

I hadn't even looked at Crucial yet. It's in between Samsung and Silicon Power in terms of price. I think I might just go for that one since it has pretty good reviews and a lot of them too. It's in the medium price range. I really want to go for the silicon power mostly because it's the cheapest, but as I said, I don't want to get burned. Should I just go for the Crucial or Samsung?
