Crucial MX500 1TB SSD (Amazon £164.63)
Found 9 h, 33 m agoFound 9 h, 33 m ago
Needs no introduction really, decent speed (I know not as fast as the Samsung 850s) amazing price. Cheapest it has been.

cheaper and just as good as the Samsung drives


Faster than the 850 probably, about the same as the 860 as I read the reviews - depends what you're doing workload-wise. Either way, indistinguishable for us mere humans.


I have one of these, but my 3 year old Samsung 840 evo is faster than it.


Great for a storage drive, if you're not using it as your main.


Within a the margin of error compared to the Samsung on performance. Excellent drives for the money.

Crucial bx500 240GB £39.59 - Amazon

After seeing the 120GB deal, noticed this had dropped also.

Looks like the BX500 is TLC.


As requested, I downloaded HD Tach and ran a quick bench on the read only test, cannot run write test without removing the partition.


A speed test probably knocks off half the life time of this drive (cheeky)


if possible do a test with hdtune to find out how fast it really is after the SLC cache here's an example of what i mean (MX500 m.2) here's a test i did myself on a Integral 120GB P Series 5 with 3D TLC nand without SLC cache you can find more tests i did here


......No...... I can't make head nor tail out of that?! I'd like 90% off a hot one of these though.... ...can you help me out?

The key thing is that these are cheaper to manufacture than TLC with a commensurate drop in performance but the savings aren’t being passed on. Needs to be below £60 or you might as well be looking at TLC drives


If people didnt check out @freddy12 's links... Basically this is all you need to know about the endurance.. From the Crucial datasheet. Endurance: 120GB drive: 40TB Total Bytes Written (TBW), equal to 21GB per day for 5 years 240GB drive: 80TB Total Bytes Written (TBW), equal to 43GB per day for 5 years 480GB drive: 120TB Total Bytes Written (TBW), equal to 65GB per day for 5 years For the average joe, TBW shouldnt matter too much according to these numbers, It should last well, well, well beyond its 3year warranty period. Plus its a budget drive so youre crying and complaining about its performance whilst staring at the wrong product page when you should be looking at something a few tiers up. Bottom line is, its still faster than a regular hard drive. Knowing crucial, its reliability shouldnt be a problem and i havent known them to put absolute trash in their products. Once you got all your apps and things installed, With most average joe usage, youll most likely be reading data off it more than you write to it once you got all your apps installed. If youre going to download the internet onto it every night though, then I would strongly recommend a regular hard drive




No ordinary user wears out a drive thru drive writes .. other bits may fail tho,These are maybe not so good if they are dram-less rather than them being qlc. By the time you've written the gtee amount of writes the drive will be outdated. Do people do one DWPD even? Also to keuy the 4k results they refer to are "small file access" not 4k content ... the drives dont care what's in your files.


Sad state of affairs when there is something worse than TLC

Same price on Crucial UK website and with free delivery option.


Absolutely correct that should have said 5x. Well it’s actually 6.4x. Faster. And smaller. And doesn’t need any wires (glass sided case). What amazes me is how little the price of Sata based SSD (inc the M.2 over Sata bus) has come down as the PCIe x4 variety become more common & cheaper. It probably IS worth buying 2.5” if you’re buying terabytes+ but at the smaller end (so presumably boot/OS drive) the speed increase is significant for small outlay.


50x as fast?? In what aspect? Not heard of an ssd capable of transfer speeds over 25,000mb/s...


I still don’t get this. £23 for 120GB and it isn’t remotely fast vs M.2 over PCIe x4. Given that 480GB is now £100 at more than 50x as fast as this why the excitement? (For reference mine boots on the Adata SX8200 in under 7 seconds from button press to usable windows with password disabled. If you require windows login with password that login box comes up after 5.5 seconds).


Fab price to use either as your BOOT drive or a plug in media hub for watching stuff, with no lag, in 4K on your Toshiba 75" 4K UHD Smart TV for a £1k!!! (strong)

Crucial MX500 500GB M2 SSD - £78 @ Amazon
Found 29th AugFound 29th Aug
Lowest price according to the camels, good price until NVME prices come even lower. Using it for a nice and slim PC Build.

Lot of people confusing form factor and underlying technology in this thread. Although most if not all motherboards that support NVME also support M2 SATA in the same slot there are more than a few older devices that only support M2 SATA so this is perfect for them. The reality is most people won't care about the difference with an NVME, I notice the blistering boot times of my NVME but I wasn't exactly dying because the SATA drive took 3 extra seconds to boot. Once you get to SSD speeds it's all splitting hairs.


Your actions do not command respect, if you are a teacher in a higher education system, god help us all.


I have always felt it's rude to be asked a question and then ignore it, but clearly that's not something with which you agree. And the language barrier strikes again - "goober" is not a compliment for us native English speakers (unless hypocrisy is something you are happy to exhibit?). But I sympathise with your position; of course you want to talk about nothing except point numbering in order to avoid responding to my points about your mistakes (not reading/understanding your own article; getting confused about being compared with another user; changing your 'incontrovertible' fact % from 50 to 75 (and simply presenting the prediction as a fact!)). There's only one good way to counter those points, but I didn't think it was something of which you were capable. Thank you for proving me right (again! It's becoming a pattern!). And as I generally charge for tuition (and you've had a boatload for free here! (nerd) ), I'm not going to continue this charity class. I'm not going to read or respond to your answers to this comment. But something tells me you're going to comment anyway - the equivalent of shouting into a phone after the other person has already hung up. (popcorn)


Those were not questions, they were separate, numbered, discussion points. Every time you say 'where is the question' it is just you incorrectly assuming they were questions. You expect courtesy after being rude? You see this line? "Ah, couldn't count above five, eh? I've heard it does get tricky around there for a lot of people, so don't feel bad about it." You do realize you are being very rude, right?


1) You had to pretend I'd said something I hadn't in order to make an attempt at a counter-point, which suggested you hadn't read my comments correctly. You were confused when I referred back to your article, which suggested you hadn't understood your article. 2) Errr... I think there's some sort of language barrier here - what did I say to make you think I thought you were Ferrari? I was comparing you with him, as your comments here show similar intelligence - it's just that Ferrari was consistently entertaining, while this is a special occasion for you. A comparison between two things does not mean they are the same. 3) Oh, you forgot to ask a question here. Derp! (popcorn) 4) Oops, another question without any question. Lay off the bottle, perhaps? (cheeky) 5) My goodness, it's probably been over a decade since I acted "like a goober" - off the top of my head, I don't think anyone's thanked me for it. But what a delightfully off-topic request! Now you link me to a photo of you touching big toes with Susan Sarandon! 8) Ah, couldn't count above five, eh? I've heard it does get tricky around there for a lot of people, so don't feel bad about it. But I strongly disagree with your last statement here - it will cause the price to drop 75%? That's a fact? It's impossible for there to be, say, a big fire that destroys a lot of the surplus and causes massive market price changes? Oh, fire-proof 3D NAND - gotcha! ;) And it will be 75%? Not 74%? Not 82%? And not ~50% like you said here? Do you see how I've referred to the things you've actually said, in order to reply? I'd appreciate the same courtesy from now on, please - no more fanciful strawman thinking on your part would be appreciated! :{

Great SSD for laptops and desktops.

Bear in mind that not all systems support the PCIe version.


ohhh coming down slowly finally nice one OP :)


It really depends on your budget, usage, and what deals are available.


No worries, well (anecdotally) I've never had much luck with Gigabyte products (failed motherboard and graphics card earlier than they should have and friend with troublesome motherboard) so I would look at MSI, Asus or ASRock. I can't comment on built in WiFi as a feature as I've been lucky enough not to need it but motherboards using the B360 chipset should be fine for a solid gaming PC (or you could consider ones using the H370 chipset if you want/need more features, they might have slightly better support for SSD M.2 based storage)


Millions of people game on WiFi, a decent router and card (Intel based ideally) and you’re not going to be able to tell the difference.

Great for the price

A mistake is not checking the information properly. An idiot then puts it on Internet forum pages for others to see how stupid they are (unicorn) :)

jldd Also you don't use the going rate for the size of the SSD, you use the going rate for the brand as some are better and faster than others (y)


They really don't. I have a Crucial BX300 and MX500 I also have a 2 sandisk SSDs as well as a number of others. The Crucials have aluminium casing and their parts and connectors are well made and secure - so much that I use them as portal drives. The Sandisks are plastic and the connectors don't fit well, so much that I wouldn't risk removing them from their current laptops.


CCL had it for 65 earlier with the code so get in your time machines


That's a good point, it could be worth buying from somewhere like Amazon for an extra, what, £6? Just for the peace of mind in case something goes wrong.

Fitted. Cloned my existing drive. It is superbly fast. Programs thst would hang before just open no problem


The benchmarks on this compared to drives of similar branding and size are way ahead. Ive got one to swap into my laptop later this week.


This is faster as it uses DRAM to speed up performance rather than memory on the drive itself (hence the smaller size for cheaper drives) to cache information. Also it will give you more total writes before failure and subsequently has a longer warranty - 5 years rather than 3. Whether this is worth a £14 premium is up to you. I have a combination of Crucial and cheaper ones, determined by the price difference between the two. At this price difference I would go for the Adata, for a larger size SSD where there is less than a £5 difference I would choose the Crucial.


As much as I like Crucial, this is a hard sell for me when another ~£13 gets you 480GB


As long as it's from a trusted brand, most are pretty much the same, there will be differing read/write speeds but I'd say crucial SSD's tend to be the most robust as well as reliable

Exactly where was this? I’m on the lookout now for the Samsung as after trying crucial I wanting to try Samsung. If I saw the Samsung the this price I would go for it


Where was this?


You YOURSELF posted this deal, oh my god. Because you *know*, despite this ridiculous stubbornness, that it's a good deal. And whether NVME is better isn't relevant. For the vast majority of users, they wouldn't notice any difference anyways. As for the rest of the argument, it's nonsense. Absolute, baseless nonsense. And hilarious you trying to flail to defend it despite you clearly having gotten confused before and didn't know what you were talking about.


Dont know any Companies that control the market as well as Memory producers. These Cartels are virtually untouchable just like the ink cartridge manufacturers who have managed to make this simple liquid one of the costliest substances on earth " an Olympic sized swimming pool filled with printer ink would cost $5.9 billion " Great to see SSD prices coming down to affordable levels but would prefer to string up all those producers by their short and curlies.

More pricey too... Here's an example


The regular 2.5 inch types use a sata connector and one above uses an m. 2 connector and is just a different form factor for saving space etc. But can be similar speed wise If you see an SSD with one of the m. 2 connectors and NVME in the title they use new bus tech. that is superior in speed as it uses pcie tech instead. Just need to check your motherboard is compatible


Can anyone tell me, what is the difference between this type of SSD (going off by how they look), and a regular (?) style one, like a Samsung Evo?

currently 2 ssds are game drives (240 and 250gb) windows sits on its own (120gb) then I got my 2tb hdd for backups/media/rubbish. too many games like starcraft, overwatch, rocketleague, injustice.... and so many more. you know the games with no end because its about online multiplayer so its not a complete then uninstall type game. then there are the current games like divinity and jc3 (I say current but I plod away at them between various multiplayers). I currently have only 35gb-ish free on each game drive. I don't have the 500gb drive but its just a few quid more than the price I payed for a 250gb m500 just before new year.


Fair point. I don't have time to play anymore so I forget about that stuff... Ahh the days of a 650mb install with patches. I think the last game I had needed just over 4gb! How times change.

Oh, you mean application/game loading that isn't bound by the SSD at this point in time? Disk bound applications will greatly benefit from NVMe.


well you dont have to take my word for it. you can google application/game/OS loading benchmark and the general census


I most definitely disagree with everything you've stated.


NVME performance is almost unnoticeable for most user. unless you move large file around constantly like a video editor. for everyone else. NVME is not worth spending at all


Important this is using SATA bus, so you'd really want to use this in a laptop and not in a desktop. Desktops generally support the much faster NVMe host controller which interfaces directly with PCIe. The speeds of this M.2 are no faster than a normal 2.5" SATA.
