    Default ADATA SP550 vs Intel 600p for a budget build

    Hi, I want to buy a cheap SSD for my desktop. I don't play any games but I intend to run VMWare/Virtualbox sometimes for learning purposes. Rest of the configuration is Core i5 6500, 16GB DDR4 RAM and 1TB mechanical drive. My motherboard is GIGABYTE GA-B150M-HD3.

    Problem is, I'm from Khulna and only ADATA and PNY SSDs are available here. ADATA SP550 240GB costs ~6000 BDT and perfectly suits my budget. But if I want to buy the 600p, I'll have to personally order it and if something goes wrong I wont be able to return it. Also I'm not entirely sure if my super budget mobo will support it or not. I can go through all the trouble to order the 600P if it's really worth it but it's reviews are not exactly exciting considering a PCIe SSD. So, in this case what would you suggest me to do? Thanks.

    Intel 600p is type 2280 and your motherboard supports that. If price difference is not much, get the 600p. 256gb specs are quite good tbh and it's not like Intel's marketing it as high speed ssd anyway. It's even in their product page : Designed to Deliver PCIe* Performance at Near-SATA Prices

    Although heat may pose a priblem.

    If you guys still think Intel 600p is even worth consideration, i have nothing to say.
