  • is it foolish to use this as a main drive, whats the feedback from those who grabbed one from one of the past deals?

    or do you think best bet is just to use this as a games drive?

    •  

      feedback on aliexpress is very positive.
      mostly 5 star reviews stating good speed.
      the 4 star reviews don't really give any details feedback.

      • Earliest review was Nov 2018, not long enough to prove the reliability. Some feedback comments mentioned very average packaging (and was a reason a guy give it a 3 stars). Even some 5 stars comments had photos showing average packaging. To be fair though, the packaging I got from local sellers here for Samsung, Micron SSDs are average too (though the cardboard boxes for the SSD did arrive okay for ones from local sellers). I guess you can get with sub-par packaging for SSDs.

        $110 delivered is attractive for 960GB. Though the $154 deal (after cashback) for the recent Samsung 1TB SSD deal made it a bit hard to get very excited about this one.

        • $95AUD (including GST) after 20% cashback which makes this 960GB SSD a very good buy.

          And if you manage to get this item delivered to another country which doesn't charge any GST and purchase it via Aliexpress App and 28degreescard, you will only need to pay this 960GB SSD around $83 AUD after cashback! That's what I have done :)

          • @fchis: You're saying youre not in australia?

            • @HappyXD: Possible that they have shipped it to a place where it will be forwarded on. There are services which do this - but probably not worth it for such a small amount. But the forwarder could also be a foreign office, family member, or friend - who was already going to forward parcels on and will just add this them.

            • @HappyXD: I'm in Australia but I set the delivery address to another country where I visit at least once a year.

              • @fchis: Okay guys… Here is a very critical review of one of their SSDs: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HLMCWdrL5pI

                Below is the summary:

                • Despite claiming it has Nanya DRAM chip, when the guy opened it, there wasn't one.
                • Silicon motion SM2258XT found inside the one he reviewed - that's a DRAMless controller.
                • Spec Tek NAND chips used, but that's not the worst part.
                • All NAND chips have 3 bars marked (defaced). According to Spec Tek Support, those chips had mechanical failures but often tested electronically good (?). They are sold at a discount BUT cannot be RMA'd (i.e. no warranty from Spec Tek).
                • Spec Tek advise using them for USB type application as they may not meet the performance requirements.

                Sorry that I am doing this, partly because last time I trusted what they wrote and misinformed OZBers that it has DRAM. I feel the need to let people know that you cannot trust what's written on their product specs page. I don't own any Reeinno products and that was NOT my review though it makes sense.

                Have realistic expectation before you purchase.

                • @netsurfer: As is typical for $15 drives in their lower end models. Even the low level HP/Lenovo ones in China are the same, though made by 3rd parties.

                  When my 960GB arrives I'll disclose the speeds and if they're shithouse I'll even crack the case 😉

                  • @Clear: Thanks, clear. Photos would be nice. Would like to know the NAND chip, the controller and whether there is any DRAM chip (doubtful).
                    Quite interested to know what's actually inside, but not willing to spend ~$100 (lots of bills to pay, don't have spare cash at the moment).

                    • @netsurfer: My 120GB Reeinno reflects the YouTube video very well but as it's being used as an external drive the speed issues aren't important.

                • @netsurfer: SpecTek is Micron Technology. I don't know if SpecTek are fabless or just taking whatever didn't meet MT's standards. According to the video these are AS grade (full spec) but usually with a physical fault (hence the strike outs). This basically means that they're sold cheap-as-chips because of the additional steps during manufacture, i.e re-ball any missing or damaged balls.

                  I personally wouldn't use it for anything critical. But if it was plugged into the TV for media then I'm sure it's fine. Nothing to really lose.

                  Don't expect it to be fast because that controller is limited the performance, but at least the NAND is full spec.

                  Be concerned when there are NO Lazer marketing on the package. It's very common for these packages not to be marked when they drop below a usable spec. BTW package is just another name for the chip.

                  • @mrhugo: Thanks for that. Spectek started as a component recovery arm of Micron. Apparently, the components they recovered / re-conditioned are not limited to just Micron ones. Now I know what happens to some of those SSDs which got RMA'ed.

                    Obviously, we don't always need super fast SSD in every usage. Even Micron released BX200 and BX500 (low cost SSDs with sub-par NAND). Though even those 2 had 3 year warranty. Spectek products normally have 1 year warranty only - with these defaced ones having no warranty.

                    These could still be a viable gaming SSD. Let's face it, games don't constantly do reads on the storage device (otherwise it will be way too slow and no matter how fast SSD is, there is no way it can replace video RAM).

                • @netsurfer: That's alright.

                  I only use it to replace my old laptop HDD (i'll put the old one in the dvd writer drive as a backup) and it's mainly for browsing Ozbargain and watch youtube videos so I suppose it's not a big loss if it happened to screw up in 3 years. But I do hope it'll last a long time tho given it has 960GB storage and it's their higher end model of SSD.

    • It’s probably a genuine Reeinno.

    • Reliability aside you'd really notice a difference in speed using it as an OS drive. These things seem pretty crap on random small r/w or whatever that important test is. Like going from a WD blue to a decent Samsung or whatever

  • How reliable are these? Thinking about getting one for my PS4…

    • Just give it a crack mate! Just make sure to keep a backup tho. If you don't have a ps4 pro no point in upgrading as the normal ps4 doesnt support sata 3.

    • If you read reviews on Chinese SSDS at Amazon, you will see that just about all of them have a much higher failure rate than brand name SSDs. Most of my electronics are Chinese brands, but I wouldn't buy a Chinese SSD again. My first SSD was a Kingfast and it lasted for well of 40 terrabytes of writes, which is okay, but a lot less than advertised life.

      • Even WestDigital and Samsung's SSD are made in China aswell.

      • We've bought a lot of Kingspec devices from official stores on Aliexpress over the past 6 years with nil problems. They perform well and are still working.

        Overall we've purchased 2 internal SSDs (64gb, 1tb), 5 portable SSDs (256gb, 1tb), and 3 SSD flash drives.

        We used deals and favourable exchange rates, paying well below equivalent costs in Australia. We also have bought Crucial, Sandisk, Samsung, & Toshiba when it suited us too.

        • We also bought a lot of kingspecs (around 20 SSDs) failure rates have been very high - mostly due to bad sectors and silent corruption. I don't recommend them, and I don't trust them for anything anymore. Thankfully all the systems we use them in have daily incremental image backups.

    • I bought one for my ps4 slim last year from taobao.
      No issues so far, and bootup + loading times are a lot faster despite the SATA 2 interface.
      In some cases, loading times have halved over the 1TB WD blue which it replaced.

    • See the picture on the drive of the wolf howling? That's the same noise you'll make when you lose 960GB of data.

      Jokes aside, they might be fine, but it is a new product. If they have used flash chips that have many bad blocks, modern flash controllers are pretty good at detecting these and re-mapping them. If you fill it up, it might run out of blocks to remap to, as this has up to 64GB allocated for that. However some chip failure modes are catastrophic and will lead to lost blocks.

  • Nice deal OP!

  • Shows at US $83.35 final price. Got a payment error "system busy" after entering cc details…

    Planning to use this as a sync drive for photos stored on NAS, so if it falls over life goes on.

    • There's a seller coupon you can claim for $2 USD on the item page as well as the pre checkout page for all orders above $49 USD.

      That brings it down to $81.35 which is the price i'm sitting on atm. My order went through successfully, hope that helps!

      Edit: also the 20% cashback is insane. I do believe overall if cb is successful you're looking at $64-$65 USD for this deal!

  • hmm thinking of using this to store Steam games and other unimportant files etc.

  • How reliable is this?

  • I remember back when SSDs were starting to become mainstream, a dollar per GB was cheap haha

  • Nothing like buying a drive, backing it up every week and sweating if it's gonna fire up every time you switch on your PC.

    • I’m still running a 250gb 840 EVO from 2012 as my main boot drive with like a bazillion hours and gigs of write cycles - that’s my weekly ritual now.

  • I might get two and chuck em in my spare synology NAS in raid1

  • I bought a "cheap" m.2 SSD Drive ( Dogfish M.2 2242 480GB )
    It lasted 2 1/2 month and then it went down. Bye Bye Windows installation & Games & Data.
    It's not the same brand, but probably similar shotty quality

  • These cheaper drives have no DRAM of any significance, so when you write more than a small amount of data the rate drops significantly. Some drives drop to below that of a HDD.

    I have been surprised how noticeable the difference was between slower SSD and a good, but not really fast SSD like a Samsung EVO 840 in every day use. Once you start moving many large files the difference is even greater. I am not even comparing to the super fast SSDs.

    • I think it is best not to mention Samsung 840 EVO. The infamous old data read issue and the eventually second patched firmware fix (which is more of a workaround).
      I experienced the old data read issue on Samsung 840 and believe me, that was terrible. I was somewhat glad that my Samsung 840 died within 12 months and I got a decent warranty replacement for it. I did lose all the data on the drive (though I already lost faith in that SSD long before it did a sudden death on me).

  • I added the ssd to cart and added both coupons for a savings of -$5.00 , then proceeded to checkout and entered my address and total came to $78 usd + $8 usd for tax so it came to $86 usd :(

  • Cheap and crappy SSD, don't get it.

  • AliExpress 20% cashback expired.

  • Apparently 创久 the brand is good in China.

  • I signed up with Shopback and made purchases of this and several other items to take advantage of the 20% cashback:

    https://www.aliexpress.com/item/kingspec-42-22mm-slim-NGFF-M...

    https://www.aliexpress.com/item/AGM-X3-Rugged-Phone-8GB-256G...

    https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Partaker-B3-Mini-PC-8th-Gen-...

    Ordered used 32gb 2x16gb for the mini pc….

    I ordered each individually ($1500+) so I hope Shopback honours the 20% for all of these - it's in the click history but nothing is showing up on the account as of yet..

    • The cashback is capped at $50 per transaction so the AGM X3 you bought would cost ~$930 AUD after the cashback

      • Thanks….I wish I had read the terms (and title!) properly prior to ordering!!.. Still $111 returned is better than nothing!

    • it took 60 mins for the tracked email to come through. and it's very important to add the item to the cart or hit buy it now after you leave the Shopback page or app (do not add the item to the cart before you click on the shopback page or app).

  • Still using 240G SSD as the system disk

  • WooHoo -triple cash back @ 20% from Shopback at Aliexpress

    So it was 6.66666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666666…. % beforehand?

  • Bought one of the smaller drives about 3 months back, for the price these seem to be good drives.

  • No more 960G, not happy

  • How is this brand?

  • It is back in stock, I am not sure if its the same price as original deal. I have personally not tried this SSD.

  • So anyone had theirs arrive yet?

    I got a notification from AliExpress saying it's shipped, (along with a tracking number - on which there has been no activity), three weeks later I get an email from the seller saying:

    Because of AliExpress Standard Shipping post office change the tracking number, the new tracking number is LM……..CN

    No activity on the new number either.

    • And another AliExpress notification today that the seller has changed the tracking number again.
