Kingfast f9 SSD

Anyone have any real world experience with this brand? Looking at buying a 256GB one from China for $80 US. I found a couple of generally favorable reviews that suggest performance is comparable to other lower end SSD models but I haven't found much about longevity and general quality. $80 is an absolute bargain for a 256GB SSD, but being China, there will be no warranty (3 years) recourse so it's no good to me if its guaranteed dead in 6 months.

256GB name brand prices start from about $170 locally now, so you're not saving much for a tonne of potential grief.

How much for postage from China? I know some places there post for free.

Free. I was ordering some other project componentry and noticed it flash up in the specials on the homepage and thought "hmmmm. Tasty."
