1TB, 2TB, 4TB
This is probably one of the best 2.5" SATA SSD on the market, certainly the most well made 2.5" by fanxiang, an upcoming Chinese brand, surpassing their previous generation models. This is a first look as I only received the 1TB model for one day, and already revived an old PC by installing Windows 7 (for lightscribe), burned a NixOS DVD with lightscribe to boot into NixOS. The Gnome Disks app shows it correctly as Fanxiang S109 1TB, with SMART data. The old computer now feels much more snappy. With many of my several years old name brand ssd's dying left and right, I am reconsidering my opinion on the general durability of consumer ssd's. Yet my much older dvd drives and discs still work without issue. That's why you see me burning discs again with a wonderful but unfortunately long abandoned lightscribe labeling tech. My recommendation on SSD's is now buy new, data integrity worths a lot, saving a few bucks on ebay is not worth it, especially given the high rate of failure within a few years, even with only light use.
Only dislike didnt come with or tell about formatting, drive set up, software, otherwise would have 5 stares.
easy to install.
writing files from 1TB USB drive to this ssd disk, measuring speed around 20M -50MBPS.
overall a good value.
Need to expand some storage on a friend or relative's small computer? Add some speed to it? Can't go wrong with this. At 240GB you'll be able to install Windows on there without issue.
Ran CrystalDiskMark to test out the speeds. I fully expected to see less performance than what was advertised but was happy to see it perform. Expected a +/- 5% difference.
SSD controller doesn't seem to run super hot which means this thing could last for a while. Granted, I don't tend to store anything on it since its inside a machine I don't often get the chance to use. Still a great boot drive or something to expand storage just by a small amount.
I would test the longevity if I didn't need the drive by seeing how much chia it could plot or whatever but I guess ill have to come back whenever the drive dies by more natural means. Overall very happy.
This Fanxiang S101 250GB SSD SATA III 6Gb/s 2.5" Internal Solid State Drive is adequate. I get nervous when using basically no-name devices like this as information can be lost if the quality doesn't hold up. So far, it works well enough to be useful.
