You clicked on a clearly labeled SATA SSD post to tell everyone that it's not NVMe?

I have actually. It SMOKED the benchmarks. This is my 1tb 2.5" SATA mx500 in a ThinkPad T430s with 16gb ram and a 3rd gen i5 processor

Before and after enabling monumental cache




Benchmark speeds VASTLY improved. In terms of real-life feel, not sure how much of a difference it makes, but why not!

Can't check out, Rakuten is hammered? Stuck after press pay, I gave up.

Update: Checked out on Android phone, went through!

I was about to get the 2.5" WD Blue 1TB drive from Newegg before I saw this one. Great price.

Anyone know if the MX500 is a better fit for the PS4 Pro? Currently have the 860 EVO still in its package so debating on whether or not to send it back and save some money.


*Edit*
Did a little research, the MX500 is generally slower by like a hair but this will save you roughly $32.50 compared to the 860 EVO deal we had recently. From the looks of it though, neither will be fully utilized by the PS4 Pro as there will be bottlenecks either way.
This deal will probably blow up once everyone wakes up.

My (un)professional opinion is for a console an 860 and MX500 would be about on par, either one would be head and shoulders above a spinner.

Edit: I would update the firmware of either one on a PC before installing it in any console.

Not NVMe
Pass for speed ahead
you don't want NVME in a laptop because it heat throttles within like 15 sec.. rendering it basically like a spinner if you do any type of transfers.

this is a perfect laptop M2 drive

I see we can turn on monumental cache on the mx500. They say it makes it faster. Anyone tried that using the crucial software?

What is better this or the WD Blue 1TB from Newegg?

My total came out to $91.50 for WD Blue 3D NAND 1TB Internal SSD - SATA III 6Gb/s 2.5"/7mm Solid State Drive - WDS100T2B0A

This crucial one would be $88.19 after taxes. Is it worth it performance wise to cancel the WD Blue over a few bucks?
