I use sort by cheapest amazon prime SSDs like this frequently for upgrading old machines and they all have been great.For game installs? The cheapest thing you can find will work just fine. Even the super cheap silicon power drives that Amazon sells work great.
"Crap brand" is massively overstating the case. You can find DOA stories for every brand, including Samsung. Mushkin might be marginally worse than some but you'd need some serious historical data to prove or disprove it.AVOID Mushkin. I had one of the SSDs fail on me just after the warranty was up. Friend told me that Mushkin was a crap brand and why did I ever buy one.
