Crucial BX500 240GB SSD - $39 + $15 Shipping (Free with eBay Plus) @ Computer Alliance eBay

610

Was browsing around to buy another 120GB Crucial BX500 SSD but came across the 240GB model for the same price that the 120GB model is normally priced at.
Killer deal for a quality budget SSD that's superior to both the WD Green and Kingston A series SSD's.
I have the 120gb model currently installed in a Dell Optiplex 990 and it breathed new life into it with almost instant bootup and shutdown speeds, and a much more responsive system overall.
Unsure of when it's ending and there's "more than 10 available" so get in quick, especially if you're en eBay plus member!

    With a price this good, I think it's crucial to get one of these.

    BX500 is a DRAMless SSD offering from Crucial. Furthermore, it has a small amount of SLC cache, resulting in sequential sustained write result being quite ugly (~$100MB/s write after SLC cache runs out - one of the worst for TLC SSDs). True NAND speed is half of MX500 - which basically tells you the quality of the TLC NAND used is inferior. BX500 reminds me of BX200.

    This SSD is best used if you have more read usage and hardly any heavy write usage. If your usage is just standard Web browsing, occasional word/excel, then I guess the cost of this is tempting. $39 is far more reasonable price for this than the RRP.

      A better, bigger and cheaper model will be available momentarily. Contrary to OP's claim, this DRAMless BX500 is no better than other brands' dirt cheap DRAMless SSDs.

    I think that the whole DRAM-Less TLC drives may be short lived phenomenon. Samsung will start shipping their EVO 860 QVO drives very soon in 1TB, 2TB and 4TB capacities based on QLC Nand (with RAM cache). Performance and endurance will be less than TLC based drives such as the 860 EVO. That said, I believe that this will be the future of large capacity value oriented drives for the mass market. Big name players such as Dell, HP and the like just want to slap the SSD moniker on their notebooks and desktops, so the bigger and cheaper the better, as 99.99% of customers don't know or care about TLC or QLC or IOP's etc.
    There will always be a market for performance oriented SSD's with the like of DELL XPS's, Surface notebooks, Macbook's and of course build your own PC enthusiasts.
