GPD WIN2 SSD M.2 2242 Replacement Advice
« on: January 26, 2019, 11:29:26 pm »
Ordered the KingsSpec 512Gb SATAIII and the Transcend 512GB SATAIII from Amazon the other day.

Both have the exact same specs.
 
The Kingston was $65 and the Transcend was $264. No brainer on price. Ordered both anyways. Still waiting to receive them.

Seen all kinds of opinions and posts about overheating on some of these drives and looking to get some advice on the best SSD to replace the 128GB SSD in my recently purchased GPD WIN2.

Really wanted a 1TB SSD drive, but none out there.

Thoughts?

Thanks.

I saw this review from Phawx:) and it basically scared me but it is 1 year old:

I have the Transcend 512GB . Works perfectly. The Phawx mention that the other Brands heat up like no other. So my suggestion is to Clone your current SSD onto the 512 Transcend, use that, then when you have everything Installed that you want, Clone it to the Kingston and just have it as a Backup.

Thanks!

Is the Dogfish brand any good?

There is a 960GB one out on Amazon for $249.99?

Never even heard of that name. Went looking, but could not find the 1TB/960GB . One I saw only had 8 Reviews, which is not good enough to me. Stick with Brands that are Known for now. Then later, if they get more Ratings that are Positive, maybe.
