Looking for cheap 480gb SSD, will this do?

So I'm sick of my laptop taking forever to start up and load some programs, and I've come to the conclusion I need an SSD to replace the HDD. I've looked around, including outside the traditional computer stores you'd find here in Australia and I found this: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Original-Brand-New-MLC-KingDian-S280-480GB-512GB-Internal-Solid-State-Hard-Drive-Disk-SSD-SATAIII/32625967489.html?spm=2114.01010208.3.131.QYKtzi&ws_ab_test=searchweb201556_8,searchweb201602_3_10057_10056_9993_10065_10055_10054_10069_10059_10058_10017_10070_10060_10061_10052_10062_10053_10050_10051,searchweb201603_7&btsid=2a8d032e-0f10-42dc-be86-5be2fc85bd60

Honestly I don't know if this one is actually worthwhile, I just thought the price is really good. Any thoughts? Would this suffice for as my main laptop drive or should I stick with a more well-known brand? What drive should I get? Honestly I'm not prepared to pay over $150 AUD but if the only worthwhile ones are $160-180 i might consider it.

Honestly, for the that price, I would get these, Corsair Force LE: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233949

I have two of these and am extremely happy with them, yes, a Samsung 850 Evo would be a better performer, but for the price, I absolutely love the Force LE.

Looks great but that's a bit beyond my preferred budget. Buying from Newegg is $180 including postage. Any stores where I am sell them for $200+

Try Adata SP550 which always go on sale at MWAVE from time to time. I picked up a 480gb one for $140. Used it for 6months now for my games and its running fine.
