    How good is this vs the MX?

    • +2

      not as good but still for the money its decent for storage or games.

      • Been wanting to get a 1TB SSD to swap out my current Evo 950 256gb.

        • +2

          this might as well be it. keep the 950 evo as a boot drive and use this as a storage/games drive. i would recmmend the mx500 for better read/write speeds though.

    • This is a great storage drive. You can get faster boot drives but for the most part, something like this is perfect for storage.

    • +1

      If you're transferring a lot of data the write speed drops down to ~50 MB/s after the first 3-4 GB's. Read speeds will stay around 490 MB/s without any hiccups.

  • Is this good for a OS drive??

      It's fine for OS drive, it'll read fast, and be fine for day to day burst writing.

      Not so fine for sustain writes (eg. video editing).

    • +2

      Depends on what you do with it, and current OS drive. If you're got a platter drive, then yes. If you have m.2 sata, maybe. Older smaller SSD, maybe. Want peak performance, and don't have the extra 1-2 seconds for an modern game to start up … then maybe no.

        don't have the extra 1-2 seconds for an modern game to start up

        What a time to be alive! Would love to have this first world problem :D

    • Sounds like this is a great deal, thanks.

  • I'm thinking as a games drive?? i have two ssd's a 120 and a 240(OS) atm? worth buying just to throw my games off both drives on to one?

      up to you

      but the review for this drive is pretty shit.


      "This allows the SSD to store the critical flash translation layer directly on the flash instead of in a DRAM buffer. This lowers prices by a few dollars, but it also results in lower performance. NAND isn't as fast as DRAM, and the constant read/write modifications to the flash translation layer are a strenuous task. As a result, performance can be rather unflattering–even falling into hard drive territory."

  • Anyone know of good deal for 120 or 240GB drives for OS? Just wanting to put them on my staff's PCs.

    Thinking these 250GB for $40 bucks not bad - https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Crucial-BX500-MX500-250GB-500GB-1TB-2TB-2-5-SATA-Internal-Solid-State-Drive-SSD/362492636361?hash=item54663eacc9:m:mF5kC1ZF5dVJnKK8ZPoWHEw:sc:AU_StandardDelivery!4510!AU!-1&frcectupt=true

      If they're just for staff PCs using office/emails/Chrome/etc, they should be fine. If you have any designers or employees moving large files I would recommend you purchase them the MX500 (or EVO drives).

      For example I do all the video editing/graphic design/etc so I have both an EVO and an MX500 in both my work computers, though the rest of the staff are using BX500 (or WD Green) drives and have no complaints.

      • Great cheers, its only for them to run Windows, and then we connect via Remote Desktop to a server.

  • Can I just plug this into a 2.5" case and use as a portable hdd?

      Absolutely you can. Umart is having a sale on ADATA ED600 External 2.5" SATA to USB3.1 Rugged Enclosure for 19$ + Delivery. The enclosure itself is awesome; however, shipping cost might be too much for you. Regular price is between 28$-29$. Maybe order something else along with it, pick it up from store or buy 2? Also ozgameshop is selling it for 23.99$ with free shipping only drawback is that ozgameshop ships from overseas and could take a while to reach, if you can wait then buy from ozgameshop. (Ozgameshop is selling it via catch of the day as well with free shipping)

      I personally own this enclosure and ordered 2 more because it is the best enclosure I have ever used.

    • Yes, but you would prefer one that supports TRIM over USB.

      • The Adata doesn't support TRIM over USB?

        • Dunno, I don't own one. Needs to know which chipset is used. For USB 3.1 gen 1 enclosure, you need to check the chipset to determine whether TRIM would work.

        • I have tested ADATA Enclosure and I can confirm that it supports TRIM pass through over USB.

  • $2.xx cheaper than the last expired deal…I wonder when Amazon will join the party on the price wars?

  • How would this go as a PS4 drive?

  • Will I loose any performance compared to my existing Plextor?


  • Well, it tells me "This code can't be applied to your order."

    I wonder why…
