    Given the existence of new 240-250GB SSD for $85-$95, and given this one is used, and given this one is already showing 'not 100%'...
    ...no way I would buy this. $50 for a crap drive is $50 wasted.

    What make/model drive is it?

    It's your money.
    I wouldn't even consider buying it.


    In addition, it was a mediocre performer when brand new out of the box:

  4. I agree with Usafret.

    Reasoning is, "health" of said SSD is at 78% while this most likely refers to ssd's life left (still not shown clearly by smart data either by mistake or by conscious omission) aka how many times/how much data can still be written on it.
    The usage (how much you write on it) dictates how long it'll last. If you use it as much as original user, estimate is 978 days, bit less than 3 years and it's dead.
    so at best, I'd say 3 to 5 years. You could likely get double to triple that or more on brand new drive. (assuming you run it 24/7 like I do)

    the "13 problems occurred during data transfer" is more alarming, I wouldn't want those. Poster doesn't make clear what they are either.

    Still, it's your money, your decision.

  5. Given the preexisting faults, I'd only consider it if it were $10 or under. And then, only for a secondary drive with nothing critical on it.

    $50? Not a chance.
