I am planning on buying one of these two models of SSD I can only afford these models, but I am concerned are they going to work well and for the long run If:

1. Install macOS Mojave or High Sierra with APFS
2. Dual Boot macOS Mojave with Windows 10
3. Still getting the feel of fast SSD

There are the models:
PNY CS900 120Go SSD 2.5" (SSD7CS900-120-PB)
TEAM GROUP L5 LITE 120 Go SSD 2.5" (T2535T120G0C101)


becuase my laptp hackintosh that I dual boot windows and macOS became so slow to a point if I open Chrome the whole PC won't respond only after a periode of time, even When I reboot opening the Start Menu takes time.

Please I need advice

I've used the PNY version and it works fine. One Team Group SSD (the only one) that I bought was DOA.

Thank I appreciate your advice so I think the PNY SSD would do the job, because I googled both of them and some said that the PNY SSD died after 3-4 monthe of use with Hackintosh, and I can't keep buying new SSDs every period of time. and Also IDK if the TRIM thing what is the use of it and is it okay to Enable it with the PNY?

Put Windows on a separate drive. See Multibooting forum.
Its because my hackintosh is a laptop I can't put two seperate hard drives, and I need windows cause some features work better with my laptop !

That sounds scary but Thank you so much
Do you know that you can boot either macOS or windows via a USB 3 port ? Then you don't have to put both on the same SSD.
Here's the adapter to use: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07FDTY299/?tag=tonymacx86com-20

To boot macOS from an external drive you simply hold the option key at boot up and then select the macOS drive.
Even Windows 10 can now be booted from a USB if you want to have that drive external.
