FWIW, if one knowingly chooses to buy a cheap Dram-less drive, then this seems like a wiser choice than the off-brand drives. Why? Because Crucial (Micron) is the primary manufacturer of the memory chips themselves. So when binning / sorting the chips, it is likely that they will keep the upper tier ones for themselves, and sell the lower tiers to other manufacturers.

This is not to say that other manufacturers always get inferior chips, but it does imply a higher likelihood that the Crucial drives will definitely have the best chips coming from the fab plant.
But couldn't it go the other way and they keep the cheaper ones for themselves and off load the better chips at a premium to other manufacturers?

The chips cost the same to manufacture. So there are no "cheaper" chips for Micron/Crucial to keep.

And it doesn't seem likely that they would choose to commit suicide by destroying their own brand's reputation via higher failure rates.

But who knows... stranger things have happened.

The general user and even gamers won't even notice it is d-ramless. Power users transferring a lot of big files often maybe. Pretty solid drive.

I use the 500GB version on a work PC and it's fine. I trust Crucial over crappy PNY and other budget brands.

I would not make that assumption at all. Crucial could also use bins that haven't passed acceptance tests for others as long as they believe nobody would notice anything different. I am not saying this is the case but the above is not a nexessarily valid assumption.

It is not like these small differences are suddenly going to make their SSDs significantly better or worse. There are larger differences between production dates.

It is as likely that Crucial uses better chips for the MX series and keeps the worst ones for the derated BX series.

This is a crap Newegg promoted deal compared to Crucial MX series, especially when NAND/SSD prices have been falling. The cheaper ones are sold at this price before the better ones fall to this price.

I'm nowhere near an EE expert but I don't think devices like memory chips pass or fail in an analog way. That is they either pass/fail like say a diode, they'll either conduct or not.

It can. To do this properly, need to back up the system to an external drive, swap PS4 drive for this one, restore to new drive from backup. When I did this to swap with the Seagate 2tb SSHD, hardest part was sliding the cover off of my launch PS4 to get to the hard drive.

Process is documented here - https://support.playstation.com/s...uage=en_US

they're called semi-conductors for a reason Roll Eyes (Sarcastic), they do pass or fail depending on temp/voltage and current - otherwise UPS and high quality power supply companies would be out of business long ago...

I haven't used the BX500 model, but I've used a dozen MX500s over the years and I've had zero issues with them.
