    This or a BX500? Only a few bucks in it?

    Crucial BX550 240GB eBay/Futu

    I think this is using Toshiba 2D NAND, vs the Micron 3D NAND and both a DRAM-less.

    Personally I'm leaning towards the Crucial as they actually produce their own NAND

    And by Crucial I mean Micron and by NAND I mean chips.

      And 'Mono' meaning 'one' and 'rail' meaning 'rail'.

      BX500 in general is a bit better in terms of performance (faster 4K random read at queue depth 1, in light workload it is a bit faster) except in mixed read/write (though if you really care about mixed read/write and higher IO performance, you should avoid both BX500 and A400).

      As for Crucial/Micron NAND chip, when you look at the sustained write speed after the SLC cache is exhausted, compared fo MX500, it is clear that Micron put inferior TLC NAND chips on BX500.

      Generally, I would recommend getting the cheaper one for low end SSDs. However, based on the recently discounted 960 EVO 1TB and 960 QVO 1TB prices, these aren't exactly cheap ($/GB).

      Wow what a rip! Last SSD I bought from these blokes was put in a standard DL envelope with no protection!

    480GB says AU $98.95 + $15 delivery?

    For this price a discounted MX500 would be a better choice!
