Solid State Drive: Inland Professional VS Top Brands

By ITpro19 ·
Tags: Hardware
Anybody here has installed an Inland Professional SSD sold by Micro Center? How reliable are theses SSDs? I see that the prices are well in comparison if not better than the top brands such as Sandisk, Western Digital, Seagate, etc... For example, 1TB 2.5” SATA III for $80.

Bought one from MicroCenter. I cannot get my board to recognize it. Recognizes Intel with no issue.

If money is tight buy it, otherwise...

by egarner123 In reply to Solid State Drive: Inland ...

I highly recommend Micro Center. I bought three: (2) 480GB and (1) 240GB. UserBenchmark performance test was 44% for the 480GB compared to my Crucial MX.500 1TB @ 85%.. (The numbers indicate the average performance of user tested hardware categories, so it was a relative thing.)

I am otherwise satisfied with the purchase. Micro Center was kind enough to replace one that I crashed by making the mistake of having two duplicate labeled Windows 10 drives (after the warranty expired). Recommended if money is tight and performance is not critical (i.e., not workstation or video editing - OK for basic gaming or a DAW). The 240GB made an i5 unit scream with delight.

This is the second time my SSD crash within a month. I'm using a Levovo notebook which originally had a western digital hard drive. Now my
SSD is not recognize in the bios setup. This is frustration. The time spent reloading the software and the operating system is not worth my time so I will go back to my original hard drive.

Inland Professional 480 GB drive

I had one for almost 2 years and it just failed the other night. I attached it to another desktop to see if it recognized it. It shows up in the disk manager but will not initiate. I will probably not buy another one.
