Heat! Thanks for posting the deal!
Only £38 more than I paid for a MX200 480 GB in 2016- I know why,but still I pray my SSDs won’t start failing.
Good if you cannot go nvme
I bought my 750gb nov 2016 for £105 perfect price
Good price.

The 1TB is available for £205. Bear in mind though that the 1TB MX500 is available at Crucial for £234 uk.crucial.com/gbr…sd1

Why?
Heat added - it was posted earlier for slightly more iirc. I don't want to pay more than £20/Tb, but I guess in the current market this is about as cheap as it gets! (it is Crucial as well which is a plus!)

I used to be happy to pay £1per mb for hard drives.
Good to see SSD's now coming down in price again, hopefully by spring / summer we'll be back to £35 drives
Is this reeeeaaalllly a good deal? Really?
Is there much chance of ssds coming down even further coming into janruary? Or would it be wise to snatch this one now?
Can this be used as a normal pc ssd
Banned
Would better get the 1TB one

Can this be used as a normal pc ssd


Yes, you should be able to use it in a desktop pc as long as you have a SATA port available on your motherboard (which is highly likely). You'll also want to check that you have a 2.5" bay in your case or get an inexpensive 3.5" to 2.5" caddy if you don't want to leave your SSD dangling inside your case.

Yes, needs a sata3 motherboard connection to get the best speed, which all recent ones should have.
Does this have a ram cache?
do these things last ok if you don’t use them? i’ve still got the 512gb version in a cupboard from last year’s deal. haven’t got round to fitting it to anything yet

They can lose data if unplugged for a long time, but they are totally fine if unused.

Eh? Please backup with technical details/links? That scenario would render these useless as a storage medium.
Heat tho - you can get it on 2hr delivery!!!! Feel bad for the delivery crew being made to work today tho. Bad amazon.

who knows? I'm sure there'll be plenty of reasons given why everything might go up in price. Grab some SSD's now then!

Same price on Crucial's website with 5 year warranty and 3% quidco- uk.crucial.com/gbr…876
Lol I bought this on Amazon, a year ago for £80.49

Same, and at the time I thought it was a lot for a hard drive (but I don't regret my purchase at all)

I just replaced my old Crucial M500 with the 1TB MX300, never had a single disk error or related fault in 5 years.

I left mine dangling. It still works. Very well. I can't verify if it is faster than the mx500 or an evo 850 but it was cheapest at the time of purchase.

nvme are known to overheat and thus throttle the speed to protect the drive

Yup SSDs do lose data if left unplugged for a long time. Normal flash usbs haven't seen this and I would say for most people this isn't something you would experience
