Windows 7: What do you think of this SSD?

What do you think of this SSD?

Hi!
I was looking for an SSD, and found this one, it seem to be TOSHIBA model "THNSNF128GCSS". However, I didn't find it on Amazon so no reviews on it there. I searched in Google and found this benchmark.
It looks like this drive is the fastest of all the drives, ever faster than the Samsung 840 PRO.

But I can't find too much information on this drive.
What do you think of it? Do you know anything about it?
And, should I buy it from this buyer on AliExpress? It looks like it doesn't come in retail package so I wonder if it's fake, or refurbished, or maybe you know why it is sold like that?

Thanks!

That would be classed as too good to be true, both for the SSD and, especially, the vendor. I never heard of the reviewer.

Look to the best deal you can find on a Samsung 840 SSD and a pro model even better.

And what about the 840 evo version?

If you get it from a reputable dealer, it would be a much better choice.

Check the NAND type on the Samsungs. I think you have to buy the PRO to get MLC. I think the EVO and the plain 840 are TLC. The NAND Guru's seem to think the TLC is a lesser type? Newegg had the TLC 840 120GB for 69.99 a few days ago. It's great to throw Guru advice to the wind and be swept away by temptation!

SSD's are getting very cheap now. Under $100 USD for a 120 GB. Check TigerDirect or NewEgg for some deals.

As mentioned I still favor the 840 pro even though I scored one of the last 830 series on the cheap......at the time, lol. Look to Crucial, Intel and Corsair as well. I even scored a OCZ 120gb for $39.00 usd but I only use it to image my 256gb Samsung 830.
