Teclast A850 VS Kingston A400, both 240GB versions

Fotti

Hello everyone,

 

I'm trying to give some more life for an old Lenovo laptop. I ended up with 2 budget SSDs for the same price:
1. Kingston A400 - stated as TLC and 3-year warranty
2. Teclast Aurora A850 - stated as TLC in title but with V-NAND MLC in description and 2-year warranty

 

Which one will last longer? The laptop will not be heavily used. Just some browsing and basic photo transfer/editing.

 

Thanks in advance!

You don't really need to worry about longevity in that use case. They'll both likely last fine...however I'd go with Kingston since it's actually a large name, and the other one isn't.

Get Kingston. It's a more credible company.

well, I think the a400 is fine as a budget ssd. but look into the higher end too, they are pretty cheap the last while

Both of these are about $35. The Evo 860 is at $60, but I don't feel like this investment is worth for an old laptop.
