One of my friend have a requirement of upgrading from hhd to ssd. So we were going from https://onlyssd.com now the issue js, today we have so many options which is like teamgroup, sp, cruxcil, Samsung etc. Now I personally have zotac, and recently crucial 1 TB which I bough for around 12k. Now it's around 9.5k.

TG SSD is for 7.5k, sp is some thing 8k+, WD and crucial 9k+

He will be using the SSD in dell laptop. M.2 slot is not available so normal SSD is the only option.

He will be doing a dual os, Hackintosh Mojavo and windows 10.

Go with the Crucial as it is better than the WD Green which is the only valid competitor in this price range.

I myself go for Samsung but I wouldn't suggest the QVO model as it uses a lower end QLC NAND which is better in cost per GB game only

We am thinking of Amazon one as it's ₹9,749 - 10%

But I have no idea how will be the RMA of crucial over it

My personal last SSD was from primeabgb physical store. They are selling it for ₹9,450 as of now

Does anyone have a crucial RMA experience

Holy crap. What Corsair PSU are you using?
My VX550 v2 (which I sold off for a RM850X in one machine and CX650M in another) is still going strong for 10 years plus.

It was gs600 I suppose, at the end even Corsair got tired and send me an RM750 from USA . That time it was just launch like 10 days ago and was not even available in inda for 3 months after

We came to an conclusion that crucial mx500 1tb is what we are going for as for 1k more we will get 2 yrs more warranty so no brainer.
