Silicon Power A55 SSD

Hey there. So for a bit of context, I'm piss poor but I'd like to get an SSD as my boot drive, and I'm not really interested in spending more than around RM80.

 

That leaves me with three choices (that I have found, anyways):

 

https://shopee.com.my/Silicon-Power-A55-SSD-3D-TLC-NAND-SATA-III-2.5-Internal-SSD-(128GB-256GB-512GB-1TB)-2.5-to-3.5-Installation-Bracket-i.137317911.2072535684

 

This is the Silicon Power A55 SSD. The cheapest one is RM72 for 128GB. Keep in mind that's more storage than I already need. I've read a couple of reviews online and this model (not necessarily the 128GB version) is considered by the reviewers as a good option for the price and performs comparatively well to the likes of Crucial MX500s and Samsung 850s, which admittedly are not that great in the first place.

 

https://shopee.com.my/SanDisk-SSD-PLUS-1TB-480GB-240GB-120GB-2.5-SSD-Internal-Solid-State-Drive-i.5954247.278355527

 

The other is a more well-known brand, SanDisk. The SSD technically has less space than the Silicon Power A55 and it costs RM88, a whopping RM16 more (preferably, I'd like to save as much as I can). But what's worrying me is the fact that the reviews I've read have essentially told me the SanDisk PLUS line-up is absolute trash.

Next up is the PNY CS900. This one costs only RM80 and the reviews I've read (a grand total of two) about the PNY CS900 have all commended the SSD's quality and performance considering its price. 

 

It'd be great if any of you can offer me some more knowledge and recommend which out of these three I should get.

 

Many thanks.

Hey there. I just found a 240GB WD Green SSD that costs RM119, which is about the same price as the other 240GB versions of the SSDs listed above. Is it like, any better? Because if it is, I might consider getting it instead.
