Two good SSDs on sale from the Black Friday sale. Both have TLC and DRAM so they're good performers for a 2.5" SATA SSD.
Crucial MX500 1TB 2.5" SATA SSD $119
WD Blue 2TB 2.5" SATA SSD $245

Crucial MX500 1TB 2.5" SATA SSD vs the Samsung SSD QVO 870 vs Samsung SSD EVO 870?
Performance between EVO 870 and MX500 is pretty much identical, but the EVO 870 offers higher endurance. The QVO 870 has QLC flash and that's inferior to TLC found in the other 2, however it does have DRAM cache and that'll offer better performance over other SSDs with QLC and no DRAM cache.
is this as good as it gets, or will it be cheaper tomorrow / monday … i don't want to jump the gun as it's only 10$ cheaper, but i do want …
Must hold until tomorrow
I've been looking at this exact SSD - I think it was this price last week…
Is this different to this one from Amazon (UK)?
Surely it will get close to $100 with someone having them on sale tomorrow/Monday - or do you think this is it?
Only difference is that the Amazon UK one is UK stock and this is AU stock. Entirely possible it could drop further tomorrow.
Would there be any difference between UK vs AU stock?
Warranty could be harder. I know with some HDDs they've had to be sent back.
@Clear: Ah Okay. I'll hold off. Bought Amazon gift card using Amex to buy Amazon UK stock based MX500. I hope Amazon AU match it at the same price tomorrow or Monday.
great deal, great ssd. Never had any problems with my MX500s, definitely a go to: IMO it's not worth getting cheaper SSDs such as the BX500 or QVOs.
How is it cheaper to buy 2x1TB SDDs than 1 2tb? I thought things are supposed to scale with a cheaper per GB as you go up.
Thanks. Picking one up for my optiplex 9020. Anyone have good ways to clone the old SATA SSD to the new one? Windows and everything boots off it.
