Recently, I bought an old laptop for school. It's an old laptop with a crappy and slow hard drive. I'm planning to change the hard drive to SATA SSD. But I got a tight budget, around 15$-20$. I got some options that fit my budget, that is :
  1. Colorful SL300 SSD 128GB - (approx. 16$)
  2. PNY CS900 120GB SSD - (approx. 16$)
  3. Adata SSD SU650 120GB - (approx. 17$)
Also there is some cheaper option SSD but I don't really know the brand, that is :
  1. Netac N535S SSD 120GB - (approx. 14$)
  2. Memory Ghost Blue Series 128 GB - (approx. 13.5$)
Note :
  • The price is converted from my country currency.
  • I buy these SSD from online store in my country.

I will use this laptop to read some E-book/PDF, light browsing and watching videos. I will install Linux mint or similar light distros on it. What should I get?

Any advice would be appreciated! =)
 
With any luck at all, it wouldn't matter.

Having said that, I'd lean toward PNY or Adata...only because they are more commonly found in my area and I have slight familiarity with them.

I assume they all have similar warranties and return privileges with your vendor.

For craps and giggle I had one of the cs900 running on a mining rig About 2 years run times. I also wrote 200tb to it for fun and it survived lol!

I will buy the PNY one, it cheaper than the ADATA one (1$ different lmao). Both comes with 3 year warranty, so longetivity will be no problemo. Thanks for the advice =D
