    How good is living in the future. Not too long ago an SSD of this size was not really feasible for consumers.

    very happy with my 525GB MX300, have been using it now for +2 years. Although an older product i expect the newer model to be even better

    This is a welcome.
    I'm constantly making room to fit new things on my SSD.

    Just my experience: I rolled out half a dozen of the MX300 SSDs at work, and have since replaced two that have failed with Samsung Evos. Hopefully it was just a bad batch?

      my bx500 gets up to 75c on heavy write load. That's the version without any ram cache though maybe that's the cause?

        My 2TB MX500 reached 65-70c under load in my well cooled home server. Those have caching and power protection.

          We are using them in just a stock standard Asus Laptop from a few years ago. I never thought about temp, given they aren’t pushed all that hard. I did wonder if capacity was an issue. One machine sat at about 95% full. So the remaining sectors probably got a bit of a thrashing, and the wear wasn’t even.

            @ageek: I just checked my SMART data for the drive and it says it's maximum lifetime temps were 85c in a well cooled case and that it's lost 3% of it's life in the 2 months I've had it. This compares to my twin bx500 which wasn't subjected to excessive writes of a 59c maximum and 100% life left.
            They would run much hotter in a laptop, the pcb inside the ssd case isn't connected to anything so under sustained load the temps just keep rising in there.

    Can this replace the 256 ssd already in my (mid-2015) 15” Macbook pro?

    Shipping kills the deal for me :(
