42 mm M.2 SATA SSD Recommendations?

So my 32GB M.2 SATA SSD just died after a month's use. Could you guys recommend me a replacement 42 mm drive for my laptop? Anywhere between 128GB and 256GB, preferably under $100.

Was looking at this: http://www.amazon.com/MyDigitalSSD-Super-Cache-Solid-State/dp/B00EZ2E8NO

Or this: http://www.amazon.com/ZTC-128GB-Armor-Drive-ZTC-SM201-128G/dp/B00IZNYDBG/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top?ie=UTF8

but wasn't sure of the durability of these drives.


I am not very sure about either of these models but I would trust Adata a bit more http://www.amazon.com/ADATA-USA-Premier-0-85-Inch-ASP900NS34-128GM-C/dp/B00LBDJZBA/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1436201774&sr=8-3&keywords=256GB+2242
Finding a 240/256GB 2242 M.2 drive is definitely going to cost more than $100 though.

The reviews seem pretty reasonable and positive but looks like it depends on the person so your luck may vary.

That's too long. Has to be 42 MM, otherwise I can't screw it in.

Yes an M.2 2242 is a 42mm M.2. I am referring to the 128GB model. Like I said, you are not going to find the capacity of 256GB for a M.2 2242 for less than $100.

Whoops, was looking at the wrong one haha. I'm fine with 128GB as long as the drive is reliable. I store most of my stuff on my desktop anyways.

Okay, also if you are willing to spend a little more there is this Transcend 256GB M.2 2242.

Its got pretty good reviews itself but nearly double the cost unfortunately.

Eh, just a little more expensive than other 256GB drives. I'll probably just stick with a 128GB drive because I have enough SD cards and flash drives to store anything that won't fit.

Ordered this. Has a 3 year warranty and much faster write speeds than other 42mm SSDs at it's price point.
