The con, it doesn't have an enclosure. There you go. More important is which chipset the cable/enclosure supports to take advantage of the speed.

BX has no DRAM cache, hence life is shorter than MX.
This is a DRAM-less based SSD which makes it not as good as the SK Hynix drive. However, unless you are a power user, the average person will not notice the difference in day to day use.
lowest 1tb I ever bought from Amazon Smilie

What is the downside of this versus an MX500? Was looking for an MX deal today.

Are there any cons using this drive with a SATAIII to USB adapter to turn it into a external ssd? Or does it need an enclosure?

Crucial BX drives, out of all the none dram cache drives, I wouldn't be worried about. They are the most impressive non dram cache drives your gonna find out there.

Life is shorter as someone said if your a power user, meaning. Doing 4K video editing renders every day for the next 5 years. I bet you the crucial BX would survive it by then. Realistically it would be hard to kill one of these for the average person. Plus BX drives have a much nicer controller in them so the lack of a Dram cache doesn't matter that much

Ive never seen the 1TB BX go this cheap before. At least not since the past year. I can't stand how similarly priced to the MX they are. They're not the same. Although not a bad drive. I wouldn't use it for mission critical data like video editing. If your the kinda person who's writing 50-100Gbs a day, this is not the drive for you. Get an nvme drive lol

But if your doing normal things. Only downloading things to it on occasion. This drive is very good. I doubt you would notice a difference between it and an MX as far as performance and snappiness goes. It's drive life for the average user is gonna be about the same. It's when you write like 5-10gb files to it constantly for minutes or hours at a times, this will come to a crawl. But that's unrealistic.
