    I'm looking to get a SSD for my media PC during the Black Friday sale but out of these drives, which one would you go for in terms of reliability and has better NAND/controller?
    • Crucial MX500
    • SanDisk SSD Plus
    • Kingston A400
    • Adata Ultimate SU650
    • Integral P Series 5

    The SanDisk, Kingston, Adata and Integral are DRAM-less SSDs so I would avoid for reliability. Best to go for the MX500 as it is on par with Samsung Evo.

    depends on the price, i have found my WD green drive to be spot on and mech wise ive found WD green and blue drives spot on and ive got my eyes on a WD black nvme m.2 drive which should be spot on(never tried red or black range), they are a good brand to consider otherwise the samsung evo's

    Without a doubt the MX500.
