    How does this compare with crucial mxs500?

    •  

      well, its $16 cheaper for a start…(although you lose 20gb storage space).

    •  

      Doesnt the mx series work better, this is on par with the bx yes?

      •  

        That is what I am wondering which is better

      •  

        Yes. Looks like to be dramless. So worst than mx.

        If it's tlc, could be better than bx

          Its a $60 ssd. I expect this to be on par with the BX500 and behind the MX but people will want to use this in less than critical situations so performance wont be a all that important.

            @tonyjzx: Agreed. Storage and read drive. Not for a lot of writing to. These are built to target a low price point.

              @netjock: Yea for me I put high performance units as a boot drive… Samsung 860 or something you know has the right reputation (nvme m.2) and then use something like the sata BX500 or that speed for 2ndary storage drives and then maybe a 1-2tb 7,200rpm hdd as say a movie drive.

              Use the right gun for that type of gunfight.

              I use a pair of BX500s in another pc as program drives and they're fine.

                @tonyjzx: I have samsung 970 evo pro that reads at 3500 mbs and there is no different to boot speed from my old drive 840 samsung evo thats 550 mbs - so….these higher drives are only for video editing and compression etc it seems

      I think it's worth mentioning that Crucial specifically sell memory/storage products, whereas Gigabyte sell a lot of different products, so consider that however you will.

    •  

      Not fully familiar with the ssd stuff. But I believe this lacks something, which results in overall slower speeds as well as less durability.

      So wouldn't use it as a main drive, an NVME or one of the top tier sata drives would be best for that. But for backup/mass storage this'll be fine

        It's fine, regardless.
        For $56, some are seriously overthinking it.

        • +1 vote

          Don't get me wrong, it's a great drive considering the price. But if the extra few bucks for a higher tier drive is feasable I'd spend it if it's being used as the primary drive.

      •  

        I have a 970 evo nvme 500gb, seriously over-rated mate. I would get a refund today if I could.

        •  

          Meant the cheaper variety, intel 660p and crucial p1 for example. Those high end drives right now just cost to much for anyone that doesn't need the fastest ssd possible.

      •  

        Lacks… Something

    •  

      22% cheaper.
      And the everyday usage results would be split-second in difference.

    Newbie question.. Would this be any good for an old laptop (2012,i7, 8GB ram) with a painfully slow hdd? Is it worth using this as the boot drive to add a cpl of years on the laptop for low end work?

    • +4 votes

      Yes, use macrium reflect to image the hdd to the ssd.

      Would recommend you get one,there is a massive difference.

    • +3 votes

      Yes. I put a 120gb gigabyte ssd into the old (2010) family laptop. Boots quickly, loads applications fast and makes less noise.

    •  

      Absolutely…totally transforms old laptops like that with mechanical drives. Breath new life into it.
      I would do new install on Windows 10 also. Good luck!

    Thanks nocure. Can someone please recommend a cheap caddy? Thinking of having an external SSD for an Xbox.

      its a waste - and this isn't a great deal - if it was the pro that would be different

    What's the price of Ebay Plus?
    What's the price of postage without Ebay Plus?

    Why do people accept the notion of paying a membership fee in order to spend more money?? It seems redundant to me.

    Got one of these for the $12 for two external HDD enclosures for a cheap portable SSD.

    Also got the 12 months of ebay plus for $1 previously, I love ozbargain.

    Next plan is to get a 1TB WD Blue/Green and a Silverstone M2 enclosure for a 1TB USB 🤔
