Seen quite a few complaints on the bx500


Mostly tech reviewers grumbling about the lack of DRAM cache just like nearly every other budget SSD these days and forums repeating these usually negative reviews over and over... I've had a couple of these and in day to day use there is little to no real noticable difference to a DRAM cached SSD like my Samsung EVO SSD drives.

Yes you can make them struggle when working with larger files, transferring bigger files can slow right down after the cache has filled up but they're still far better than any mechanical drive.

I've not yet come across lots of actual negative reviews from customers based on emperical evidence but I could have missed them of course.

If you want the best, get a Samsung Evo or Crucial MX SSD, if you just want a cheaper upgrade then these BX's are usually fine.

Too true, you don't expect DRAM cache at this price, and when your used to a HDD changing to an SSD you don't noticed a few seconds (between models), you notice the minutes you saved booting. Saying that I did buy an MX version 480gb when it was on sale.

I know its an awkward question but what is a larger file?
Unless it's to quicken up an ageing laptop, I'd worry about the lifespan of these. Though I have a Western Digital Green drive in my mum's ancient HP laptop.

I sent back a DRAM cache-less drive after reading terrible (though there were some good ones) reviews about it and bought myself the best I could afford.

Don't bother with Kingston ,, I had to return an ssd after 4 months Only my own personal exeripence
I bought one of these several years ago at over three times this price and it has worked like a charm - startup and shut down is much quicker and operations much faster and smoother.

A file that is 1gb or larger I. E. Video files or large zipped/ archived/ compressed files
Why is this deal hot. Its 10% off all SSD at the moment with the above code. According to user benchmark :- ssd.userbenchmark.com/Com…496
the kingston is faster and is cheaper.
The mymemory one is very good aswell and you get better cashback on it at quidco.

Ah definitely need one with dram then.
It's a good thing to point out for the majority of people, e.g. gamers, casual users, this drive is PERFECTLY fine.

Just really, if you're using this for an OS and steam, it's more than good enough. Though i'd go for at least 500gb, if not 1tb if possible, but once you hit the 1tb mark, an MX500 is usually the same price as the budget 1tb drives, if not sometimes cheaper.

It has a 3 year warranty and Crucial are kinda big and well known. Think they're owned by Micron a 40 year old company and 1 of the largest memory makers in the world who make lots of RAM, SSD's and associated stuff. Been using Crucial and Micron SSD's and RAM for years now. They are good for Warranty and longevity.

Good deal, good price, a trusted brand.

Not sure why you had to quote me. Btw, the M.2 more expensive SSD I ended up with was Crucial and I have a few older SSDs of theirs (before their value SSDs appeared). And I usually buy RAM from there too. I'm well aware who they are.

My concerns are about the shorter warranty, more expensive SSDs offer 5 Years, but you pays your money and all that..

I believe I have an MX model too. Although I haven't actually measured performance, I am overall very satisfied with it. I did read on the difference between MX and BX, and in the end sided with the MX.
