Once upon a time, I spent £74.99 on this. I stupidly thought it was the start of sub £100 TB SSDs. Wish I'd just lumped my savings into them.

Memory prices have gone up. Samsung and SK Hynix are both building more …Memory prices have gone up. Samsung and SK Hynix are both building more memory fabs to overcome shortage but will only go online in 2020 as they cost billions to build. That is why mechanical hard disks are still in use , when they cannot match in weight , power consumption, physical size and reading/ writing speed and very delicate. Also the Pound used to buy two American dollars at one time . Now it does not after bank scams and Brexit.


when did a pound ever buy two dollars? I think it was 1.52 at a height of pre-brexit fever...
Good price.

Yes it's not an Evo 9999999999 but still plenty fast enough for most peoples needs.

Pre financial crisis it just about did. Not too relevant in the context of 'modern' SSDs though!

No but specs make people all weak at the knees.
Though I’m toying with buying either as a drive for my Lightroom Catalogue.

Maybe, maybe not; but the Crucial has a 5 year warranty vs 3 years for the SanDisk.

I personally bought the 500GB MX500 because it has the best price/performance available right now, not because it made me weak at the knees - I have a 250GB Samsung 960 EVO NVMe for that.

I think Tomshardware puts it quite well...
