    FYI, free delivery if spend is over $49 so get the 480 GB SSD to qualify!

    Cons: slow sequential Data Read/Write Performance :207/85MB/s compared to something like 550/450MB/s.

      Not sure how? The 480gb is $64 excluding delivery.

      Edit:I interpreted wrong.

      I think that's just for the lower capacity drives. 480GB specs on the KingDian website say around the 500/300MB/s mark, depending on which model you choose.

      On paper it looks like the S280 is the better bang for buck, but it appears that the S400 has a metal housing vs plastic housing on the former, if that's a consideration.

      Both are listed as TLC NAND in the specs. Write to life expectancy is 8 years.

      •  

        Update: After closer inspection, it looks like both models have a metal housing, so just the slight RW increase with the S280.
        I've got a feeling that the S280 is the newer model as well, as a quick google search shows some reviews for the S400 in 2017, whereas most if not all of the S280 reviews are from last year onwards.

      S400 has slightly less RW speeds, that's about it as far as I can tell. I'd go for the S280 at the same price (which I did).

        Ahh I see, daam I bought the S400 LOL, oh well doesn't really matter too much since it's for an old 4th gen i5 with RX570. I don't think I need the ultimate SSD for such a build.

        Awesome price either way!

      I bought the 480gb S280 a while back, As far as I remember the S280 has a nominal amount of DRAM cache <1GB from memory, the S400 does not.

    Grabbed a couple of 32GB drives. It's plenty of space to install a Linux distribution or Kodi.

    Not sure about the numbers, but the actual benchmarks show a different story.

    S100 seems slower than a normal 7200 RPM HDD, in terms of mixed IO it is half of a the cheapest WD or Seagate 1TB drive.

    I guess it meets a niche market for non-critical IOT products. TBW is also quite controversial at 285TBW. Note WD green 120GB SSD only has 40TBW endurance.

    From their site:

    Using 8 years if write 100GB every day(32GB)??

    I mean it's a MLC and not a TLC like the higher models, but still that number looks dubious. Thus why looking at the actual benchmarks becomes more important than what is advertised.

    I think what is meant to say is 100GB per month, which gives you around 10TBW, which seems more reasonable…….
    Would only last me a month with the amount of data I write to my scratch disk. lol.


    My guess is they are clearing those really junky ones that are sub-hdd speeds. The other pricing seems more in line with normal branded ssd.
