    Integral Performance 120GB SSD mini-review

    Inspired by Bagnaj97's mini-review, I've decided to contribute as well

    Integral Performance 120GB SSD (for £24.99 from MyMemory on 8th of May, 2018). Delivered in a jiffy bag, as a 'gift' from Switzerland. Surprisingly cheap so I wasn't expecting a earth-shattering performance. 7mm thick with a stick-on bracket, if required. 111.79GB after formatting. Fair warning, the driver performs suspiciously well.
    Same as Bagnaj97, I've used AS SSD and CrystalDisk. I've compared the performance to my system SSD Crucial MX100 SSD.

    All the links are 404 - maybe try reuploading to imgur?

    Don't have a Imgur account - if sharing pictures would be easier, I bet there would be a lot more user reviews.

    That does sound good especially at the price. I can't access your links. But I'm starting to wonder just how cheaply, and small you could build a reasonable PC for, the way some prices are dropping. As some VR games require you to wear the PC on your back, that will lead to smaller, less heavy gaming PCs. It is interesting how many people have made themselves reviewers on YT.

    Re: Integral Performance 120GB SSD mini-review

    I have a couple games and a couple blockchains and I'm struggling to keep any space free on my 500gb Samsung 850 Evo. So... just be aware that it's ickle. Please. It's going to take up a valuable SATA port and valuable space in your case.

    In 2k+18 I wouldn't be buying a 120gb unless I was just using it for OS + 2-3 large programs.

    I'm not sure if I agree with that. The OS and essential software would take up 20GB (or so, just guessing right now) and you'll be still left with quite some place for additional programs. Take Sims 3 or Sims 4. On my spare laptop we have both complete editions plus a basic Windows 10 and still have 30-40GB free. But my statement is only correct if you are okay with not storing media files on your SSD as they gobble up space.

    I thought people might find it interesting how I am using my '500gb' (46x after overprovisioning) Samsung 850 EVO. I have 46gb free at the time of posting.



    My c:\windows directory is 35.8gb

    I've just run CCleaner before this screenshot was taken.

    I find 250GB drives a squeeze, and only use them on occasional use machines like laptops. Was quite pleased with the SSD I got for my son's main machine being 525GB. That extra bit of capacity over my 500GB Samsung drive should help. Since getting the Rift, I'm thinking it might be time to upgrade to a 1TB SSD.

    I have an old 120GB SSD in the kid's Minecraft server box. TBH though, even that only works because it's Linux and uses the btrfs filesystem which can snapshot. I started off getting the box to zip up minecraft worlds to give restore points if someone griefs it, but that consumed too much space.

    Re: Integral Performance 120GB SSD mini-review

    250GB a squeeze?

    It would be if your steam folder was on there too. I use a 256GB m.2 drive for OS and apps but I have separate SSDs for Steam/Games and general file storage. I'm sure I'd be perfectly happy if my m.2 was only 128GB.

    I have a low power NUC browsing box that only has 128GB in total, same with the wifes laptop - neither are hindered by such a small SSD. Most things are available over the network, on the NAS or server.
    Before you judge a man, walk a mile in his shoes; after that, who cares?! He's a mile away and you've got his shoes!
