IMHO it's better to pay the extra £5 for the Crucial MX500, you get 10Gb more plus an extra 2 Years of warranty!! Well worth the extra £5.

That said this cheaper SSD might suit certain needs/situations better for some people so cheers for posting :-)

Quite easy Misterboumsong
Use this software .... Macrium Reflect Free - Hard Drive transfer Software.
I’d pay a little more for a better one like a 850 evo

Thanks for that useless statement.
Embarrassingly never had an SSD before. Is this a decent buy for first timer? Will still keep my HDD for bigger storage

I would personally recommend to buy a ''good, known'' brand. Drives like these are about a fiver more but atleast can have some peace of mind if something goes wrong. E.g. Sandisk sent me a replacement when one of my SSD's failed after 2 years.
These would be a good examples (ultimately your choice):
amazon.co.uk/Wes…ssd
amazon.co.uk/Kin…ssd
All the best in your search!

Mx500, Sandisk Plus or 275gb Mx300?
Edited by: "djwilko" 20th Jan
Personally I'd go for the Mx500, had a Sandisk SSD before and it felt very flimsy/plastically compared to the Intel & Crucial SSD's I've installed.

Yes, in 'driven over by truck' tests Sandisk drives underperform against their competitors.

Three year warranty is only good if you can return it to Palit.
Any deals on a 500gb ssd?

Actually I also had a plastic SanDisk USB, just wore away where it goes into the PC, would never get one again, and if you think that's stupid, you don't spend enough time on here 😋

Man, I've snapped 4 drives this month trying to install them. They're like ginger thin biscuits!

Its not like buying a pc 4 year newer.
Mechanical hard drives are the dinosaur tech still in entry price new pc's, crippling almost everything at some point,even if its just opening a program.

Doughnut, doughnut..
Any machine with an ssd is vastly more satisfying to use than one without.
You cant go back once you have owned one.

rma to pallit means international shipment at own cost, I believe.

I actually agree with you.


I own a Crucial, Toshiba and Sandisk SSDs. The Toshiba and Crucial have aluminium housing and what appear to be strong sata connectors. The Sandisk is a flimsy plastic affair and the sata connectors seem liable to snap at any stage. There is feedback on amazon where it has snapped off.

The speed on each is great and work faultlessly so as long as they are fitted securely to start with the should be no problams.

Ssd is good for the primary system disk but still expensive for bulk storage, definately still worth owning dinosaur tech. My oldest storage media is cassette tape now that is slow...

Actually even Samsung SSD's are poorly engineered, yes they have the best and fastest IC's inside but the casing and general build quality is flimsy.
So much so that only a few months ago when I was re attaching my SATA cable to my Samsung SSD the damn thing snapped clean off!!
Luckily I'm pretty good with a soldering iron (thanks to the old console modchip hacking days :-) ) and was able to fix the damn thing by cutting and hard soldering a SATA lead onto it!
Not wanting to blow my own trumpet but not many people can solder to that finer pitch and would have had a useless SSD drive on their hands!!

Here is the flimsy and snapped Samsung SSD, the Intel and Crucial SSD's I've used seem to have stronger and better build quality:
