Why?


Dram cache

Makes the drive work better by caching the most used information so it’s quicker to access.

Makes these fast drives even faster, especially if the drive starts to get full.

Thank you.
These are absolutely brilliant. Very quick, easy and cheap way to revitalise and old laptop or desktop pc. Use Minitool Partition wizard (free), clone the old drive, swap you HDD for this SSD and it'll be better than when you bought it.
Crucial's best SSD. Wish they had an nvme drive that was as solid. Great price.

Edit: and I would second Evostick47s recommendation for MiniTool Partitioner. I've had more luck cloning / resizing drives with this program than any other.

Regularly on deal for £44.99 Sabrent 512GB NVMe.

Frustration free packaging means not the retail box. Does it change anything? I would assume since it is amazon the drive would be brand new.

If you need it now then this is a good price for a very good SATA SSD, or if you can wait for a price drop then you should be able to get the 1TB Sabrent for less than this. I paid £82.49 for mine at the end of November and it's hit that price a few times.

Sometimes it means that you get the item in the original box and shrink wrapped as if you had bought it in a shop but no 2nd parcel cardboard box or bag.

I've had these drives come in an envelope, they can shift loads that way.
Any difference in performance between this form and the m.2 ssd variant going at the same price?

Thanks, I think I will hang on for the Sabrent. Planning a new build for mid Feb, so picking up deals between now and then where I can.
The 250GB 2.5" is also very close to it's lowest price of £36.96 at £37.78 -> amazon.co.uk/Cru…XCV

No difference that would be distinguishable outside of benchmarks. M.2 has the benefit of being smaller and not requiring cables. It's still a SATA drive though so you won't get NVMe speeds.
By the way, is this a M.2 form factor or 2.5inch? The link takes to a 2.5 inch, whereas the picture in description is M.2

It's for the both, The link in the description takes you to M. 2 and the main link for 2.5".

Great price for a great drive. Heat added....
Thinking of getting the 2Tb version, unless there's something better?

I guess temperature won't bottleneck it, the only bad thing would be wasting a m.2 slot. Guess for a boot drive it's a good deal.
Looks like the 1tb is oos now
1TB not available in FFP anymore.

Yeah, depending on your setup you might want to go NMVe rather than use a SATA M.2 drive. There's not a lot of practical speed difference in most normal uses but NVMe is certainly a little more future-proof.

Similarly, overheating shouldn't be an issue at all except maybe in very specific use cases.

I paid the £187 for the 2TB drive this time last Year, price has dropped 72p.
Stuck one of these in my PS4 seems much more responsive
£93.41 now, paid the same for this 6 months ago.
If your system can use this:

Yeah expired as it has gone up again.
So people are saying this SSD performs better than the Samsung 860 QVO? Is it like a huge difference? I was gonna get this SSD but the deal is gone now.. I really just want it for my PS4 Pro.. just debating with myself whether it's actually worth buying a £90 SSD for a PS4 pro.. Anyone done this? Is it a night and day difference?

Only you can decide that really. Current Gen consoles aren't optimised for SSD's so the difference isn't night and day like it is on PC, but there is still a significant difference

I have one in mine as well it certainly helps.

In a PS4 the difference isn't really going to be noticeable as the drive will be mostly doing small reads. Any SSD, be it a QVO, EVO, BX, MX etc. will give you a noticeable improvement over the stock hard drive but you'd be very hard pushed to notice a difference between the performance of any SSD.

Having said that, an MX500 is simply better than a QVO so if the price difference isn't all that great - and perhaps if you have a PC or laptop that you could move it over to when the time comes - I'd go for an MX500. This is what I did with mine. It lived in my PS4 Pro until I sold it and now it's the game drive in my PC.
