I was offered two models of SSDs:
- Kingston V300 120GB - Warranty: 1 Year
- Samsung 840 EVO 120 GB - Warranty: 6 Months
The problem is that in my country all SSD products are imported, so the seller give an additional warranty, after that I can use the official Samsung/Kingston Warranty but I will have to ship it to the US (too expensive, too much time, it will be faster and cheaper to buy a new one ).
1. Kingston V300
I read about it and it comes with the 506 firmware, and many people complain about the poor performance, and it seems that Kingston is not going to release a new firmware version. The seller told me that the product is from Taiwan. Will I have this problem? Or only the Chinese version is defective?
2. Samsung 840 EVO
I read that its pretty good but I only have 6 month of warranty, is it enough time to know if it will work for a couple of years? Is there any way to test the SSD to prevent a failures?
What should I do?
