This outperform SSD Plus but QVO is the best out of three. You can compare them all here ssd.userbenchmark.com/
The MX500 is a better option but it is £13 more.
This is not a good OS drive, it is one of the DRAMless SSDs, which means it suffers a lot of slowdown.

In some tests, it is barely edging ahead of spinning metal.

If you want an SSD for backup/movies this is fine, but you'd run into some performance bottlenecks in OS and games usage.
Hi. Sorry newb question. Would this work in an honor magicbook? I've read that... "The LITE-ON CV8-8E256 is a SATA SSD, but the good news is the M.2 port supports PCI-E SSD, so if you are not satisfied with the SATA SSD, you can upgrade to a PCI-E SSD."
I bought one of these few months back for like £75, it's great to use as secondary drive for games/media storage drive but I wouldn't use it as a boot drive.
£1 down.

I just checked and that benchmarking site is showing the BX500 as being 10% faster than the QVO? Am I missing something?
