    • good spot!

    • Hm should I wait til prime days or black Friday?

      • possibly should

      • +1

        I’d wait and see what comes out on prime day given the 2TB MX500 has been hovering in the sub $300 price range quite a few times lately.

  • +2

    Decent price for a very good drive.

  • perhaps due to the bad press from a firmware problem this week

      Didn't realise SSDs had firmware to update

      • +6

        They do.

        Generally the rule is.. if it ain't broke don't mess with it. Same with motherboard BIOS unless you need some of the changes leave it alone.

  • hmm need a m.2 drive when the ps5 comes out, waiting until then

    • +2

      You will need M2 NVME, wait for Sony to partner up with some company like Microsoft did with Seagate then see if those products are same as currently released NVMe M2 ssd drives such as Crucial P1, Samsung 970/980 etc

    On the one hand, this is a good price for a 2TB MX500, but on the other hand, we've regularly seen 1TB MX500 drives for around $130

    i think it needs to come down another $10-20 to be worthwhile getting this over not having two 1TB drives

    • -2

      definitively what do you do when a 2tb ssd dies ? I don't see the point after 1tb really

      cloning 1 to 1 periodically seems more cost efficient, with a backup.

      • +1

        Whats the point after 120GB?

        • -3

          120GB? This is a stupid comment.
          People have differing needs, different set-ups and different reasons for wanting an SSD larger than 120GB

        • +3

          The ability to install call of duty warzone

          Currently at 250gb install.. and climbing

    • +2

      I used to think linearly like you until I ran out of drive bays and SATA cables. That being said I don’t disagree because 1TB seems to be the sweet spot for SSD pricing.

    • for laptops, people often only have space for a single SSD, so if 1TB is filling up, you have to move to 2TB or clean-up.

      • wouldn't usb 3 on an external cheaper drive play games assuming that's what you mean? photos and spreadsheets same? ssd file recovery is like really specialist - its a bit like a phone or a tablet if u get what i mean..

  • Ordered A2000 on 19/09 and still not arrives.

    • i did the same for amazon but i paid about $10 or so more but got it within 2 days of ordering.

  • This or EVO 860 for a slightly higher price?

    • EVO 860 has better cloning software and slicker performance monitor. Better scores too

    • Both are top tier SATA drives so no practical performance difference.

  • 870 QVO 2.5" 2TB $254.75 after PLUSNEW coupon code with ebay plus, and after $30 cash back from samsung.

    https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/1TB-2TB-4TB-8TB-Samsung-SSD-870-QVO-2-5-SATA-Internal-Solid-State-Drive-560MB-s/363114854642?epid=19039398381&hash=item548b54f8f2:g:8HQAAOSwlsNfWWwx:sc:AU_StandardDelivery!2607!AU!-1

      Qvo is more comparable to the bx500 version from what I read.

    • The SSD's are basically identical, so this is the better deal.

  • +2

    Not really cheaper than the 1tb drives, but if you're starved of sata ports then it's fine I guess

    • yeah right? everyone kept saying prices will price. Prices will fall. Its staying the same…?

      • there are base costs they can't escape, e.g the packaging, the drive housing, etc, so until they move to different die sizes, it's twice as many chips, so costs twice as much. And the newer die densities would be used on M.2 hence check the cost of 2TB NVME ….. so 1TB is cheap because of old tech, 2TB costs double because twice the old tech.

        • 2tb less demand - less units - higher price 1tb old lots of them cheaper price.

        • Or alternatively, newer competition comes out which is cheaper and those with existing stock need to flog it to get rid of it! I'm hoping for this especially after watching the DF video that SATA or NVMe drive doesn't make a difference for loading "legacy" games on Xbox Series X - but I need to find a good USB to SATA cable.

  • Anyone knows of any good deal for a 500GB SSD possibly crucial MX, thanks
