this may be sata but for some people (mainly laptop users) 2.5" drives aren't an option anymore so for them this is a good price. Personally, even in my desktop I would avoid using a 2.5" drive now, if I can help it.


What the guy fails to mention, is that he is from the future. The time travel has given him some jetlag....


Oh it will, many years ahead when this technology is old & small. People will be throwing them away as not to be worth selling. Trust me :D


I remember selling two 4MB SIMMs for £175 each after the Sumitomo Resin factory fire...


Decent deal but I'm just upvoting for the drama.

COLD!! 500GB ssd should not be more than £50-60. They have been out there for more than 5 years now.


But that's a whole 2p dearer! ;(


Amazon currently have the Samsung 860 Evo 500GB for £105 if anyone's looking for one


Maybe not, but it was quick and average.


"A quick average deal" AKA not a deal? lol..

SanDisk Ultra 3D SSD 250GB up to 550MB/s Read/ up to 525MB/s Write £60.82 delivered at Amazon According to 3Camel, lowest its been or the MX500 at £62.46?

Thanks OP, got one for the old man


..yet it still fits in the same form-factor case. Therefore the 3D NAND has more empty space? :)


3D NAND actually takes up less space per memory cell as you can use the XYZ planes instead of just the XY planes (planar NAND). Think 3 storey house v several bungalows. The latter takes up alot more real estate.


Might be wrong but I think this is the 121212th deal in computers

Crucial MX500 CT1000MX500SSD1(Z) 1 TB Internal SSD (3D NAND, SATA, 2.5 Inch)  £189.99 @ Amazon

Would this SSD work for use as a PS4 internal drive? Thinking of replacing the stock 1TB HDD with an SSD.


Indeed, the correct use of mega, kilo, teras, pico, nano, micro etc for orders of magnitude is governed by SI, and the only acceptable usage is "T" for tera.


Thanks for the tip, will check it out! Checked it out and it is dangerous for use on a desktop PC without a UPS backup power supply as a power cut could result in corrupting the drive if cached data in the RAM is lost before being written to the SSD. Useful for laptops, however.


Have you installed Crucial Storage Executive? Sometimes these programs can make a considerable difference, not only downloading the latest firmware but optimizing the drives for use under your operating system?


tera or Tera just indicates a size, no connection with the "B" or "b", see relevant RFC

Cheaper than amazon with free delivery

It's 189.99 on Amazon now lol


Still doesn't beat price per GB of the £90 Mx500 500gb a few weeks back, going to hold out for £160 to £170 for a 1tb ssd I think as I'm not in a rush Good price if you want it now though


This premium drive is competing price wise with much inferiror drives - this is the best value drive you can get for this size.


Aarrghhh! I always said under 200 was my breaking point. Now I'm going to be forced into buying it.


Nice to see the price of the bigger drives coming down. Heat added. :)

Crucial MX500 1TB SATA SSD - £202.13 @ Amazon

Great price for a 1TB SSD. This one has good speeds too.

This SSD is £196.50 from Crucial, with free (3-5 days) delivery.


Longing for the day when I can get a 10TB one for the same price as a mechanical drive. Guess i'll be waiting another decade for that to happen.


Nearly sub £200 for a TB is awesome . Heat from me


This doesn’t seem such a great deal, wasn’t 500gb version £89 recently? 1TB (2) = £188, arguably better reliability wise if case has enough space


I do hope they keep dropping. 1TB for £150 would be a nice price point for a typical SSD.

Crucial 4 GB DDR4 RAM £28.99 Amazon
Found 11th MayFound 11th May
Not bad for the price. Nice for a budget build.

Any examples of consumer ddr4 boards that don't? All AM4 motherboards seem to work with ECC. (Though many operate in non-ecc mode) LGA1151 appears to be a similar situation. (Though vendors appear worse at listing it in their spec sheets) LGA2011v3 boards almost certainly do, given their enthusiast target.


No ecc memory will not work in most motherboards, in most motherboards it wont even post.


I ordered a pair on the 23rd April, it arrived on the 30th, so stock does definitely arrive. I combined it with the £10 free credit Amazon £40 top-up promo. As was pointed out the last time this was posted, ECC ram will work on most motherboards; without ECC support it'll simply operate in non-ECC mode. I haven't yet tested its overclocking capabilities, though with its CL17 timing I don't expect it to be super speedy.


Isn't this the item that has been this price forever _but there has been no stock_ ? after all this is much cheaper than what you can get on ebay. Heat.


Yeah as mentioned it is ECC ram so wont work with any intel core ixxxx processors

Crucial MX500 M.2 500GB SATA SSD at Amazon for £99.63
Found 11th MayFound 11th May
Great price for a 500gb M.2 from a reputable company
Get dealGet deal

But the price should be near enough identical too. I've been looking for an affordable M.2. (Sata or PCIe) simply because I already have enough drives and cables in my case :D This isn't a bad price but the Adata XPG SX6000 which is a PCIe (albeit not a great one) is only £117 for 512 GB on Amazon at the moment. I'm really not sure the premium for drives like the 960 Evo is worth it for the average user.


Atleast with the NVMe there is a noticeable performance gain but m.2 / Sata SSD are identical. I guess if you've only got an m.2 slot or building a small machine then m.2 is the only option.


Yeah, I've got an early PCIe drive in a MacBook Pro. It's very fast, but again I can't compare it to a SATA device in that machine as it doesn't have the interface. Plugging one in via USB 3 or Thunderbolt wouldn't be a fair test. It boots a few seconds quicker than my old 2011 MacBook Pro with a SATA drive, but given it only reboots every couple of months when there's an OS update it's not a compelling reason to spend £100 more on a PCIe drive for a Windows PC.


The first time I used a PCIe SSD was in a Dell laptop and it seemed snappier to me but I didn’t use it for long. But I can’t say if that was objectively valid as I had never used it with a SATA drive. It did plant the seed of wanting a PCIe Boot drive in my next desktop but not at a large premium. I managed to get a Toshiba XG3 512GB for £115 with a warranty so that wasn’t much of a premium for what is a decent SSD that uses MLC. My data SSD is a mere SATA drive but it is 1.92TB and a data centre drive so it has great consistency, endurance and power protection. If I hadn’t got such good deals I’d probably be slumming it with TLC SATA drives. (lol)


I'd be intrigued to see the real world performance benefit of a value and premium NVMe drive in typical desktop use over the MX500... Sure a Samsung benchmarks much better, but if that only translates to a half second reduction in actual loading times for something, is it really worth double the cost?

But you were looking at a product that you ordered so was presumably known to you whereas the person checking the product might never have seen a PC case in a box before. There are loads of items I could determine issues with quickly but a lot more where I wouldn't know where to start so it might take me ages to determine. Amazon know what is going on and have presumably decided that it's more cost effective not to check things thoroughly. Maybe they do for high cost items but for a PC Case and 16GB of RAM it's not worth the cost.


In my case they had replaced Crucial 16GB DDR4 with Kingston 4GB DDR2. Checking the name and size of RAM is a lot quicker and easier than reading a manual and checking that everything is present. I expect them to pick up on basic and obvious fraud but not more subtle stuff.


Corsair PWM fans aren’t particularly cheap, RGB or nay. I take your point but I literally opened the box and there was a manual which said the package should include 1x case, 3x fans, 2x cables, etc. So I guess I didn’t have much sympathy with Amazon.


They might no nothing about pcs tho, so do t know fans should come in the case, any case fans will probably be pretty cheap anyway, corsairs are unless they r "RGB cases"


That’s what the amazon guys said. But I’m no expert either, and it took less than 30 seconds to clarify that the fans were missing...

If you don't mind the "frustration free packaging" (i.e. comes wrapped in cardboard looking like it is a dodgy knock off) this is cheaper on Amazon anyway. And Amazon will (generally) look after you if anything goes wrong... not sure I have the same confidence in eBuyer.


I got mine from Amazon for £40.39 this week, getting £15 off thanks to a couple of the offers listed at the Sandisk deal below (I used the £10 for a £40 Paypoint top up offer and £5 for the app sign-in). It's gone up a couple of quid since then, but still a bargain.

Only proviso is it is a 2.5inch drive which this is.


there is some considerable tweaking software with both drives, I recommend you ignore all of it. (lol. it appears my tongue has fallen out and I have become an imbecille. lol. lol. lol...)


Software guff? What do u mean lol. I've not installed any software


The crucial mx 500 is somewhere around the 850 evo performance. (higher, probably) Its a bit too close to call but I suspect the crucial will last longer. Simply because all that software guff you are expected to use with the samsung, the crucial its not made such a biggee out of,and my old mx200 drive I never bothered. Still runs like a champ after 4 years. Read ; 530; write 330. good enough for me.


Great price, I also bought off amazon though but previously bought the Samsung evo for my laptop - amazing performance but with 20 quid different decided to try the crucial for my desktop PC. Rock n roll

Do not format the old drive!! Keep it in a safe place and or partition the HDD so your OS is safe if you want to use it as storage as SSD are not 99.9% reliable just yet. Although I've bought a few SSD in the past and none have failed.....yet, cross fingers, I've been reading up on warning signs of failing drives and it's not looking good..... Basically don't put anything important on the SSD that you can't afford to lose. Maybe move your Windows profile to a slow HDD if possible as you have a much better chance of recovering files off the HDD vs the SSD. If your lappie has a CD drive slot you can buy a SATA adaptor that you can use to put your old HDD into the slot so it can be used as additional storage.

Ive just bought a laptop and ssd and ram is replaceable and has spare slot... i know ram has to be specific sodimm smaller not dimm but is there laptop specific ssd?


The 5 year warranty with generous endurance allowance is the big advantage over the very cheap manufacturers too.


The £25 integral is half the capacity, so not exactly a like for like comparison. :{


I'd say they're aimed at two different users to some degree - Crucial for an important or often used computer, the integral for something that's less important or older and needs a cheap easy upgrade. both will work ok and most people probably won't know which one they've got inside their PC. I recently plopped the integral and a £4 stick of ram into an 8 year old Dell desktop and now it flies, so for under £30 it's a mega cheap upgrade.... paying more wasn't worthwhile on that older PC.

The MX500 is a brand new model, the 2.5" form factor came on the market in January, while the M.2 just this month. Definitely not on clearance. This is (as mentioned by others) a SATA drive. The closest equivalent would be the 860 EVO (which also is SATA). The 960 EVO is a NVMe drive. Different format (even though they look nearly identical from the outside), much more expensive, way way faster.


You mean Evo M2? This is standard SSD speeds, The Samsung one is a few times faster, total different leagues. This has sequencial reads of about 560mb/s whereas the Samsung will be 3,000mb/s+.


What's the difference with this and the Samsung 960 eco m2?

Yep! So even though it was cheap I have to spend an extra £150 for it to work as it should. That is £150 more than a good reconditioned business one. I usually buy refurbished business laptops which have always been great - both processing power and battery life. I thought Id' go with newish home user laptop this time.
