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?
The MX500 is supposedly faster. Personally, I think it's a wash on speed so buy the cheaper one.

I had the one from last year and yes it works but I needed to buy an cable. I looked into the post for that i5 laptop and one of the comments said that the space in that laptop has been filled with some mesh like thing so you might not be able to do it at all. I suggest checking out the SD post for that laptop and read the wiki.

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
Attachment 8663890

Attachment 8663893

Benchmark speeds VASTLY improved. In terms of real-life feel, not sure how much of a difference it makes, but why not!
Unfortunately, enabling Momentum Cache doesn't help much and can actually hurt transfer speeds.

I would look into getting a NVMe M.2 drive. The ADATA 8200 was on sale for $59.99 yesterday. It looks like it's now back to $69.99, but there are several other good 1tb options for sale right now. The Intel 660 1tb is going for ~$83. If you only need 500gb then maybe you could keep waiting for another deal. A NVME m.2 drive will be a lot faster and will replace the one you have in your laptop. No need to worry about buying an extra cable or trying to fit another drive in.

In the SATA form factor there's not going to be a real difference. The WD/SanDisk and Crucial drives both use top of the line NAND. I'd say go with whichever is cheaper at the time.

Pulled the trigger on the 1TB. My current OS SSD is a Crucial 120GB that's almost full and outlived its 3 year warranty by 3 years on top of that.
