2TB Crucial SSD MX500 $311.20
500GB crucial SSD mx500 $91.20
Original Coupon Deal
Bought the 2TB with this code 97 mins ago (with ebay plus for free delivery) and it was $318.40
How do you get $311.20?
Just checked and get the same as OP
250GB 500GB 1TB 2TB Crucial SSD BX500 MX500 2.5" SATA Internal Solid State Drive
Series: MX500, Storage Capacity: 2TB
Subtotal (1 item) AU $389.00
Vouchers/coupons -AU $77.80
Order total AU $311.20
Yeah the original item was $398 not $389 which explains the difference. What the? Can I do anything? I literally ordered it less than 2 hours ago…
Reverse-Jacked ? or Un-Jacked ?
Edit: I see, they have a couple of listings for the same item at different prices…
Buy another one first, than cancel the order.
The seller might not cancel the order
@BongoOB: As an eBay Plus member, you can return it for free.
@jim518: So when seller notices your not an eBay plus member they don’t bother canceling orders?
@BongoOB: I think that only ebay knows you are plus member or not.
@jim518: Note: this means the return postage is free, not that the seller has to accept your return.
@ChiefAJ: They'll accept a return, it's in the listing.
@BongoOB: Can't guarantee they will, but I ordered the incorrect item from them. When I realised I contacted them. They said they can't change what I ordered but they could cancel. They also couldn't cancel part of the order, it had to be the whole thing. I cancelled my order and the refund was initiated quickly.
I just put it through into my cart and added the code and it cam down to $311.20, see the image here.
any external hard disc? the cheapest i have found is 3TB for 99? any cheaper than that?thanks
Wish you could get the M.2 at this price :(
Your best be is likely waiting for an Intel 660P sale. They've been just under $300AUD for the 2TB model a couple of times. Not quite as fast as the more premium NVME drives but still plenty quick for more real world use cases.
I think its better to go for the WD Blue3D SSD's.
They're more consistent, and one of the best non-NVMe out there. At least according to Anandtech. Just gotta wait for the bargains.
I think I remember seeing one of the 1TB's M.2 going for $150 which is a good deal, but here's a 500GB for $103.20.
That or wait for the 2TB Crucial P1 to come out.
The 1T Crucial P1 was $130 on Prime day, so that's become my benchmark for M.2 drive prices: https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/470683
Definitely worth the extra cashola:
I need to upgrade my ssd. How would this compare to a Samsung evo 860?
It’s crap compared to the Samsung, as it is DRAMless.
For purely storage (for games etc) it should be ok - just don’t use it to boot an OS.
Will be slower and less warranty but for general usage you won't even see the difference. I have all Samsung because of the brand and because that was when SSD isn't bargain price like now (my first 500GB EVO 850 was about the price of 2TB MX500 give or take a couple bucks) so it made sense to go for the better warranty ones.
Not a huge difference.
MX500 about same as Evo 860, so whichever is on sale is the one to get. The BX500 is the budget version and is not fair to compare with Evo860. It is much cheaper and generally used for secondary storage or cheap boot drive for legacy computers (not newest computers).
MX500 such good value compared to 860 Evo when performance is the same.
Just lasts almost twice as long
Correct. I had my MX500 last less than a year. Crucial's warranty support is also terrible.
Looking at the 63%+ , it justified paying 64% more for MX500
I see SSDs, I click Up
The Eneloops of the modern age.
Guys, would this be good for accessing data for 4K video editing ?
No DRAM cache on the BX500 so for large files like 4K video the access times will be crap
what SSD drive types would be good for recording high bitrate 4k video.
I see Angelbird SSDs recommended but they have a premium price tag
Samsung Pro SSD probably your best value for money
Would you know do the Samsung T5 drives share the same tech?
What's been the cheapest 1tb ssd so far? Is this it?
This same SSD has been cheaper before but take that as it will. Doesn't necessarily mean it will be that price again in the near future.
Is the MX500 2TB a better choice than the equivalent Samsung 860 QVO (QLC)?
Looks like mx series are equal to Evo and bx equal to qvo performance wise.
This is a good drive for the PS4, particularly if you play VR games.
I got the seagate firecuda instead
I remember considering an SSHD back in the day but in 2019, I think I'd pick SSD with 1TB capacity over a 2TB HDD with a small SSD cache.
I went with a 7200rpm 4TB drive and has been a great upgrade from the 5400rpm 500gb stock drive
That's a good option as well and the performance isn't much worse than a pure SSD for the PS4.
I went with the SSD for other reasons as well (I sometimes have to kill the AC to my console without shutting it down and don't like hearing the HDD click abruptly).
I think I watched video comparison, it has the same speed, except that it needs to run the game 5 times at slow speed first. After that it is the same.
Will this be a good choice for MBP 13' 2015 early model?
I'm not a mac guy but looks like it's a nogo:
Looks like they don't use standard drives anymore, and switched to something called a "blade drive".
2TB back in stock using POUNCE20 to get same price. Decided to bite as the QLC drives don't seem that appealing and if price difference isn't much, may as well just stick to TLC.
heard bad things about Crucial BX500 but i will use it to store items maybe even games, worth it?
It’s an entry level drive without DRAM so whilst better than a traditional spinning hard disk it’s not going to set any records. Just like QLC drives, if you’re aware of the limitations and know how it’ll fit in with your use case, it could be a bargain. Eg It would be perfectly fine as a steam drive for example.
Am I missing something? I can get one of these from MSY down the road for $330 so a $327 deal from Ebay doesn't seem to be a bargain at all.
