Am considering the purchase of a SP NVME SSD from overseas. Wondering if anyone has experience with support/reliability etc ?




They are quite a lot cheaper than the opposition.

Review of one from a couple years back....  dont exactly stack up to their claims by the looks.

There's probably a reason they're much cheaper...

Eh, if it's going to be a system drive don't cheap out. You'll regret it. Speaking from experience - don't cheap out on your PSU and primary OS HDD! :D

I had a SP 512GB that failed in about 18 months.... so I would just go with the main brands personally.

That was sata so will be a totally different controller on it so not comparable to the OP's question.


There is still a huge difference in price between sata and nvme drives so would be interesting in what these guys are doing to get them so much cheaper like that.
