Wow that Ryzen 3900 is definitely like an RRP pricing to me!
I'll have you know, my 1TB died a year after I set it up. Their support is stupid AF.
My sandisk still going strong 5 years later.
Was reading the comments from past deal and would avoid. Any other better quality SSD for slightly more or 500gb?
Samsung is always a good bet.
Samsung is Great. I've got a pair of Samsung 850 Pro SSD still going strong a few years later.
@hollykryten: I've got a 1TB 840 EVO still going strong. 100TB written, just under 47K power-on hours.
The mx (pictured here even though deal says bx) gets good reviews for performance and budget. But haven't read about reliability. 1 year isn't good
And I will 2nd the SanDisk SSD quality. My 120gb SanDisk SSD has been going strong for at least 4 years now.
I have a Crucial BX500 ssd as my boot drive, paired with a 9700K. The application, boot and general performance has been abysmal. I switched to a Samsung 970 evo plus nvme, and it's just night and day. If you're on a budget, you can spend a little more to get the MX variant.
BX make decent storage drives specially in iTX rigs and are decently priced (well they were b4 all this stuff happened)
You were absolutely right. I would say if you can, avoid BX serials.
I bought a BX500 and I regretted immediately. I knew it was not good but I never expected it was that bad:
after continuously writing about 10GB to it, the writing speed dropped to around 40MB/s which I hardly believed as my ~10 years old 2.5" 5400 rpm HDD is much much faster than that, not even to mention my ~6 years old Toshiba Q serials, which does not have RAM cache neither but can still deliver over 300MB/s writing speed.
Considering that you can get the 1tb MX500 for $160 + cashback, I don't think the 1tb BX500 is a good deal
I bought mine is November 2019, the prices have gone up, but they will go back down. IF you look at all the mx500 deals using search, you will find most of them are around that price.
Futu Online = JackU online
I laughed at this more than I should have, probably. No regrets though.
