Mr. Mojo Inland is Microcenter's house brand, and a quick google search shows maybe Centon as the OEM. It looks to be comparable to most of the other budget SSDs on the market as far as performance and reliability are concerned, and it retails for ~$50 on Amazon new.

skupples you should have no issues with the bargain brand $480 you got.


ssd's are 100% worth it. Single biggest upgrade you can make after any sorta graphics card.

UltraMega In terms of durability, even a used SSD should outlast a new HDD. As has been said, SSDs are really cheap now but there is no reason not to use a used SSD from a durability standpoint.

Stealth3si installed it, no problems

Stealth3si I bit the bullet and went ahead and snagged a new Inland Professional 480GB SSD for $39 on ebay. It has a 3 yr warranty.

I plan to use this as a gaming storage drive on a secondary gaming laptop on occasion.

This better be worth it.

ltpdttcdft Inland isn't very well known... I'd stick with the more established brands.

Stealth3si is inland professional ok?

white owl It's not a great deal, decent SSDs are about $0.11/GB brand new so $30 for a roughly 5-7 year old SSD is pretty meh. I'd think it would be slow compared to today's budget drives.

Stealth3si is a intel 520 480gb for $30 worth it? it has 39 TB written on it.

Penicilyn It won't be faster than a decent consumer grade unit but assuming it hasn't had a hundred billion cycles on it then it should last forever.
