400 TBW rating isn't exactly epic, but should be enough for a home user



400 TBW ÷ (5 year warranty × 365 days/year) = 216 GB of writes per day! Yeah it *is* enough for a home user

I think these are older drives from Micron.

No its been around since this time last year. Uses the same controller as the WD Blue 3D series so won't be a speed demon but fine for the average user.

Did some digging around and it looks like these were announced sometime Febuary 2019. Looks like they're released on the market only recently though. It's a bigger version of the Micron 1100 but using 96-Tier 3D NAND.

Thanks, tried finding out but confused as this is non SED drive, SEDs are far expensive. That's helpful. Cheerz.
Would this be ok to put in a failed 4TB Seagate 2.5 case that I’ve detached the connector (USB3 to hard drive) for and just plug in?

5 year warranty? Ebay listing says 3

Its actually about average for a consumer SATA 1TB TLC NAND SSD. The Crucial MX500 is 360TBW, and the Western Digital Blue 500GB is 400TBW. The Crucial BX500 960GB is 240TBW. Samsung 860 EVO is 600TBW. Samsung 860QVO 1TB(QLC) is 360TBW.

Thanks, Added it. It wasn't there when I posted. Well spotted.
Would this be any good as a boot drive? Always see talk of DRAM and can't see that this has any.

Yeah it was announced with a 5 year warranty but looks like it might be 3 only. Which would make sense with the type of drive it is but yeah even these cheapie ones have loads of life in them. Always backup once,twice and three times (for luck) though if you cannot afford to lose data.

I have a mega fast NVMe drive, Samsung Evos, old Sandisks and even an ancient Kingston SSD and for normal use I don’t believe a normal human can tell the difference. Drives with DRAM wear better though so should last longer and have much better sustained read/write speed I.e. cheaper SSDs like this will suddenly drop speed right down to spinning disk speeds when their cache gets full.
Sometimes I might (snobbishly) say “always buy a SSD with DRAM” but then if you don’t move 100sGB files around often then go cheap if moving from those spinning rust buckets. As with any data storage - take backups,backups and more backups. Cheap external drives and online storage used together to make sure those photos and important data are not lost.

I think there is an 8TB one from WD Elements for around £150 from Amazon. It was posted here earlier this month.

Not SSD though that's just regular hard drive.
Not much of an expert, but how important is SED in a drive like this?
They wouldn't make NVMe drives if there were not any difference.
Startup times and gaming does not really count for substained use.


Compiling a library or large files used to take 5 - 6 seconds with ssd, Samsung nvme takes around 1 second.
Edit and do that 10 times and that is a minute with ssd, nvme 10 seconds.

Tempting to raid some nvme gen 4 drives when the new faster ones are out.

There is a bit of rubbish in your comment. The best advantage from hdd to ssd was not the read/write speed but the non sequential writes/reads which people don't get. Movies are mostly non-sequential reads/writes as there are big fat files. So no. You can not have that big improvement in raw files, as processing comes into place too.

If I banged a load of games on to it, would the performance decrease significantly? In other words would there be any point in filling this up with games if the end result would be load times no better than a cheaper HDD?

SSDs will realistically always be faster for game load times than an HDD. Though, I'm sure someone will reply with a contrived case where it is not true

Micron are the company that produces Crucial branded drives. Micron only sell OEM drives under their own name, so these will not have a warranty from Crucial. For any recourse you need to go to whoever you bought these from - in effect the cost saving of these over the crucial brand is the crucial ones will have a 3 or 5 year warranty. These will have none. Having said that I have a 2tb Micron drive and have had no problems with it for the 9 months I have had it.

I’ve never done it myself but then I never filled up a HHD either as always kept 10-15% free.
