    Not bad price for the 1 Terabyte QVO, if you missed out the $145 Mwave deal.

    Crucial BX500 got some bad reviews here 2.5 out of 5 https://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/crucial-bx500-ssd,5377....

      It's an unfair review, IMO. The BX500 isn't a fast SSD, not designed to be, not priced to be, not purported to be by anybody. Compared to other SSDs around the same price bracket (e.g. the WD Green), it's similar in terms of performance.

      At $40, it's not an enthusiast product. It's something that I would put in an old laptop to give it some new life or something I'd install in my grandparents' PC when they're saying that programs take a little too long to load. And yes, let's not kid ourselves, it's by far and away faster than any hard drive.

        You would be better spending a little more for the samsung, or the seagate at umart

          You could say that about anything at the super budget end.

            @p1 ama: Well hold on
            Compared to entry-level WD Greens or Kingston UV400/A400 Crucial has neither the brandname recog, reliability, or extended warranty that these companies provide
            For example my Kingston SSDs I bought 2 years ago had a 6 month Kogan warranty, Kingston's own 2 year warranty where I just snap a picture of the box with serial number on them and they'll send me new ones no questions asked and Aus consumer protection warranty however long that is. I can live with Kingston/WD Greens being slow for the peace of mind their brand names give me.
            This isn't like a Xiaomi phone doing what more expensive phones can do at great price point/utility ratios, it's a very average card which is unreliable by a company unfamiliar to the everyday consumer who's looking for a cheap SSD

              @Exley: Crucial doesn't have brand recognition? What?!

              Micron Group (i.e. Crucial) are the third largest NAND flash manufacturer in the world after Samsung and Hynix. They are a far larger company than either Western Digital or Kingston.

              I don't know anything about how reliable these are as I don't own one and have never researched it. Would you be able to give some evidence for Crucial SSDs being less reliable than Kingston or WD?

              Micron: $20.32bn Revenue
              Western Digital: $19.09bn Revenue
              Kingston: $10bn Revenue

              So is Crucial still an unknown brand made by an unknown company?


        Got the bx500, funny how that review never came up. Was mainly comparing to a Kingston uv400 at the time. Wouldn't have picked that it was behind the mx500 or the wd blue.


          The issue with BX500 initially was the pricing. It wasn't that cheaper to justify it when the older (but faster) MX300 or EVO 850 works out same price then. And that was when SSD was still expensive.
