    I had a crucial ssd years ago, same story it died about 30 months in… it also had a 3 year warranty… got in touch with crucial who wanted me to post it to some european address and wouldn’t replace it as they no longer sold 64GB drives, wanted me to pay extra towards a 128GB…. so combined with postage it was as cheap to buy a new one… effectively a useless warranty.. so I never bought their brand again.

    Similar price to the Samsung 870 EVO 500GB

    Mine just died after 3 years . If you’re looking to buy these, please do a bit of research on the large volume of failures people have seen on these in the past few years.

    Just curious, did you update the firmware at any stage?

    I bought this 500GB model way back when it was over £100, and that was considered a good deal for 500GB ssd at the time (edited)

    Better getting the Samsung?

    When these fail they do it catastrophically with no chance of recovery*. By contrast when my laptops' HDs failed in the past, they got noisy/slow, or were recoverable with a sector repair tool. You'll need to have a mechanical HD or another SSD in addition to back this SSD up to! That's what I have to do with all home PCs.

    *TBH once my work laptop's SSD failed with boot sector corruptions twice. Recoverable but I insisted on a new SSD at that point.
