    Wtf is this BS?

    I got my SSD about a week ago and I installed Windows onto it like usual. I noticed that the boot speeds weren't the greatest. So I did downloaded a SSD benchmark tool and this is what it gave me... My HDD is on the left and my SSD on the right.



    Seriously? wtf. The packaging says it has a 450MB read/write speed. I've looked into it and it seems like many people have the same issue with this SSD...

    In other news, I bought my first mechanical keyboard today Absolutely freaking love this thing. Ducky Shine 3 with MX Cherry brown switches



    I just want to type stuff on this thing

    I've bought a high end SSD, medium end SSD, and low end SSD.

    Low end only booted faster at startup, but it lagged like shit was basically trash.
    Medium end is meh, does everything well enough.
    High end was like GAUT DAUM WORTH EVERY PENNY.

    I'm thinking of returning it back to the seller. Problem is, I got it from Amazon and idk what their return policies are like for people living in NZ. If I can get a refund I might invest in a Samsung Evo or Intel SSD. Not sure.

    I'd stay away from Kingston. Apparently there are two models of the exact same SSD. One made in China and the other made in Taiwan. The one made in China has the speed issues.
    Oh hai der.

    The Amazon reviews said it all, many people suffer from this issue because apparently they used a different chip other than the one they released it earlier for the better reviews.. shame really

    I am going to be purchasing a SSD really soon for my laptop, so If anyone could suggest a good one, that would actually work as advertised, I`ll be really happy about it! Don`t want to end up like OP.

    P.S the keyboard is really awesome dude!

    It feels godly So nice to type on, sounds great and is hella solid. You could probably knock a full grown man out with this thing.
