oversea purchase generally out of warranty after return period set by the seller, iirc.
that's the downside of it.


what you need is luck  sweat.gif
I bought Gigabyte GPU from amazon but i was considered lucky, used it for many years until sold it off.

SSD is pretty durable, compare to HDD where one single drop would kill it, or infected by bad sector.

What do you by mean what? The 14 day return option or the warranty on the parts, eg. some ssd got 3-5 year warranty or etc?

Just... don't get a cheap part and hope it will last...

Also if you want to RMA how? what if amazon say you pay the shipping, fly back to US and back to MY you can buy another SSD already, probably.

i used a400 480gb for my games and VST plugins. free space around 30%. games i didnt notice any problem BUT for music production, any plugins installed in that SSD suffers very shitty stutters. long load times and even stutter during playback. pain in the ass especially if stutters during recording.

I've been using 120GB A400 since last year without any problem. I always make sure to have at least 30% unused disk space.

Now already upgraded to 256GB XPG SX8200 Pro. I bought it for RM175.

You need to keep some space free for best performance.

Install only the Windows OS and frequently use apps in the SSD.

Anything else such as downloaded files, games and program all put into HDD.

It's not that difficult.
