Pray tell
MX500 is better on random reads which is what gives the PC a snappy feeling and is most of real world (non datacenter) usage. Sequential speeds are a myth. Good price for a NVME though, bear in mind it uses 2 PCIE lanes where more expensive drives utilize 4.

High sequential speeds are quite useful if you back up your storage drives regularly (something we should all be doing). Also it should make loading screens in video games shorter. Plus some other uses here and there I can imagine.

P.S.A. Seriously though guys, good advice; back up your storage drives regularly. I do a full disk image once a week. Depending on how much you use your PC, running into a problem that wipes your drive can be almost traumatic.
