5.0 out of 5 stars Why and Why not to chose Crucial MX500 SSD? [Compared with Samsung 860EVO]
By Shivanandana on 19 September 2019
SSD is very different from HDD. It is important to understand the difference before buying.

HDD is like plain empty space where you keep filling data in FIFO manner.(First In First Out).
SSD on the other hand is like a "mini-computer" in itself. It is not just an empty space to fill. There is hundreds of operations that happens when writing and reading the data. There is a dedicated micro-computer/processor inside an SSD. It has it's own cache, it's own programming etc. So, it is like having a small computer within your computer that allocates space, manages read/write operations. You even have firmware upgrades to your SSD.

That is why just "Price/GB = Value" formula won't work on SSD.

Now, every company has their way of programming their product. There are various types of NAND modes in SSD like SLC, MLC, TLC, eMLC, QLC.. where SLC is most expensive but very durable and suitable for enterprise/business. QLC being cheapest but less durable.

I have both Samsung 860EVO and Crucial MX500. Below is my analysis:

When you compare it Samsung 860EVO, refer the images that I've attached. From the first test,(less memory written for less number of times] it seems Samsung is clear winner.. but hold on...
If you see the next set of images, where more memory is written more number of times, you'll see there is a significant drop in Samsung's performance. This is what I mentioned about internal programming of SSD. Where as you'll see Crucial MX500's speed is almost same in both cases. (Consistency).

Ofcourse, I've also attached HDD performance, clearly it'll show why you should upgrade to SSD from HDD.

So, my conclusion, --> Samsung SSD are suited for smaller amount memory which are written less frequently.
Crucial MX500 --> Suited for steady, long term, non spiking performance.
Even you can go for ADATA SSDs they are reliable but the cheaper ones will be little slower because of QLC type.

FINAL VERDICT:- For a difference of 1000+ Rupees, if you are a home user with normal gaming and storage stuffs, go for Crucial MX500 SSD. It is actually of high quality and serves the purpose very well.
I have been using both Samsung and Crucial and I didn't notice any practical difference when copying, reading, writing, gaming etc on both. They are identical in performance for human perception. Crucial is actually better in some aspects.

What to be aware of?
Package comes with a small square shaped extra metal. It was of no use to me.
The firmware on my SSD was already updated and latest.
You can download Crucial SSD software for authentication, future firmware upgrade etc.
You buy 500GB but only get 465GB usable. Well, this is the case with all memory devices and the 7% loss actually helps for random file operations.

For first time buyers, I hope this was helpful. :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars 💝👍 A Review worth reading. Excellent Drive in Quality, Performance & Cost.
By Neeraj Vishwakarma on 19 August 2020
🤏 A PREVIEW TO PURCHASE – A DEEPER DIVE INTO DETAILS ..
***********************************************************************************
🔹️Even though it took some time to go through all the details, I must say that this purchase has surely left me quite brushed up regarding any NVME or SATA ssd.
 
I recently decided to upgrade my existing 1 TB Seagate barracuda pro SSHD boot up drive , as it failed just over an year, it was a real tough task to lock on to the correct parameters to check , so as to make a sound purchase.
 
🔹️I would also like to share my journey of this selection process, in case it helps any fellow buyer, as believe me, there is a lot more to look for beyond mere advertised read write speed.

⭐Bit lengthy but worth reading before shelling out 10 grand.
 
❗Also please note that proceed only after verification that you have a SATA 3, 6 GBPs system, otherwise for laptops with the older sata versions 1 or 2 , the data transfer speeds will be restricted & be a lot less.
 
 
🎯 FIX THE SIZE :
*************************
There is no way ahead, unless you decide what’s the size that you are looking for.
 
🔹️If you are planning on using it as a bootup drive then go for no less than 512 GB and if you are into games, you can go for anything up to 2 TB depending upon your budget.

🔶️For gaming though, I suggest you to go for blazing fast nvme drives provided you have that slot.
If you have two drive slots – one can be nvme for bootup & sata ssd for storage.
 
🔹️Even if you are not into games – I would suggest not to go below 512 GB as a future proof measure considering the ever-increasing application and software installation sizes.
 
🔹️For any storage or bootup drive anything is good provided you keep 10 % space free, for optimum disk performance and speed.
 
♦️I decided to go for 1TB SATA SSD version to be used as a simple storage drive.

🔹️For boot up drive, I purchased an Adata SX 8200 pro nvme drive.

🔹️Out of 1 TB, I got around 931.5 GB of usable space. 

🔹️Also talking about its physical size, most Sata SSDs are now 7 mm wide but any thing of width 7 mm or 9.5 mm would fit just fine in the sata slot.

🔹️An extra rubber adaptor for levelling up the 7 mm drive to 9.5 mm, is also given with this drive pack.
 
🎯 QLC, TLC or MLC:
*****************************
This is another very critical deciding feature as it represents the data packing density per cell.
 
🔹️The QLC is the latest technology and stands for Quad level cell and contains 4 bits per cell.
Samsung Qvo is such example.

In a similar fashion:

 🔹️TLC – Triple level cell & contains 3 bits per cell.   (Pretty fast with decent reliability & cost)
🔹️MLC – Multi level cell & contains 2 bits per cell   ( Super-fast and reliable but very costly )
🔹️SLC – Single level Cell & contains 1 bits per cell. (Super-fast and reliable but extremely costly)
 
However, with increased data density - the price per GB, write endurance, sustained read write speeds of the drive and the drive reliability goes down.
 
🔹️So in short, I would suggest to, go for a TLC Drive which is an optimum compromise between cost and reliability especially when you are going to install an OS on it.
 
🔹️Constant data rewrite would not affect its data and speed reliability in such case.
 
🔹️If it is to be used as a storage drive for general data , then you can surely go for a QLC drive like the Samsung QVO and others.
 
🔹️MLC & SLC drives are way too costly and impractical for normal users and are mostly meant for servers.
 
♦️The MX500 is an improved version of BX500 with better controller TLC drive and other parameters also in favour of purchase.
 
🎯DRAM or DRAM LESS:
*****************************
🔹️This is another important deciding factor, nowadays in the market many SSDs are coming without any of their own Dynamic RAM and utilise the system RAM to cut on the price margins but in the longer run, it suffers in speed and endurance especially while writing, hence, I would still suggest going for “with DRAM” SSDs.
 
🔹️Here, in crucial MX500 The DRAM cache is around 1 GB, unlike many other budget dram less drives.
 
🔆Crucial P1 , is one Dram less, QLC based drive and is surely a lower range option.
 
🔹️This would result in sustained speed endurance over time.
  
🎯SPEED & THERMAL MANAGEMENT:
 **********************************************
I read so many reviews on various sites about some of the fastest drives and found Samsung to definitely lead in most cases.

However in case of Sata SSDs, generally all drives have a range of around 500 MB per sec - some a few more & some a few less , so if you are confident about your brand , just go for it.

🤏 A slight variation of 30 to 40 MB per sec won’t make much of a difference.
 
🔹️Samsung EVO are good in speeds but are very costly in comparison.
 
🔹️Further to note is the SLC caching feature in drives, which again, by virtue of its single level architecture is very fast in read write operations.
 
♦️ I have an HP omen with core i7 8750H processor , Nvidia 1070 GTX graphics card & a 16 GB 2666 MHz RAM.

In multiple tests, with even fan on – it generally  gave a read write speed of 540 to 500 MB per sec which is similar to the advertised speed.
 
🔹️Faster speeds come in handy when playing games or high-resolution videos or doing some heavy video editing jobs.
 
♦️This drive temperatures were pretty stable too & below 50 degrees Celsius at all times so no issues in cooling.  
 
🎯BRAND RELIABILITY, WARRANTY & SERVICE CENTRE AVAILABILITY:
 
**********************************************************
This is another very critical feature to look for in practical terms .

🔹️Check for multiple product reviews to ensure low failure rate and high product reliability. Samsung, Western digital, crucial, Kingston, Adata, Transcend etc are some good brands.
 
🔹️If the drive supports low parity bit checking then depending upon the effective algorithm of error checking by drive onboard controller , one can expect a better reliability.
 
🔹️Check for warranty periods offered, the more the better.

🔹️Service centre availability is another major thing to look for, in case you need their help.

❗Some companies like Adata will only allow in-person submission of faulty drives at their service centers in india , which could be a big trouble.
 
♦️Crucial MX500 comes with 5 years of warranty and has many service centres across india.
 
🎯TBW :
**********
🔹️This is the Terabyte Write capacity of the drive before the drive storage starts degrading. In most cases it is more than too much, so do not worry too much for this figure.
 
♦️In MX500, the TBW offered is 360 TB which is quite a good endurance rating compared to most SSDs.

🔆For a basic idea, It basically means that for a given warranty of 5 years you can practically write like 197 GB data per day up to 5 years.

 
🎯 COST :
**************
You can Keep the selected drive in your Wishlist and in event of any sale, you can surely have a good margin at prices.
 
🔹️For information, Samsung & WD are mostly overpriced, so you can go for alternate good manufacturers like Crucial Adata, Corsair , Kingston etc which also offer good speeds and reliability.

🔹️I got this crucial MX500 for 9646 bucks in a sale against 10700 as regular price, which is decent enough.
 
🎯FINAL VERDICT  :
***********************
I shortlisted the crucial MX500 after comparing and reading about a lot many drives and essential parameters and by far now, I am fully satisfied with its speed and temperature management.

It is very much comparable to Samsung drive & with its new micron 64-bit TLC controller and I do not see the need to spend any extra bucks just for brand reputation.

🤏For record, micron which is the parent company for crucial , is the designer of the onboard drive controller for a majority of other brands.

👍Surely recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars High Performance / Cost effective upgrade
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 25 October 2020
I love to see people's reaction after they see the result of replacing an old HDD with an SSD.
Many are shocked because they can’t believe that it is possible for a compact, affordable component that does not require complicated installations - to make such a significant difference in performance.
I am often asked by friends, relatives, acquaintances to upgrade or speed up their PCs - and every time I come across desktops/laptops that have an old HDD as their system disk - I become happy, thinking: ''Oh yeah, I know how to impress you''.

I used this Crucial BX500 SSD to upgrade storage and speed up my cousin’s old HP laptop.
It is important for him to have Microsoft Word, PowerPoint and Adobe Photoshop open all at the same time and this SSD has completely resolved all of his crashing, slow loading and spinning wheel issues.
· Boot up and opening programs seems about 5 times faster than with the original spinning disk hard drive.

👉 Fun fact: CrystalDiskMark7 shows weird results, from (Read)560MB/s / (Write)530MB/s TO (Read)700MB/s / (Write)620MB/s - anyway, this fact doesn't affect performance at all.

✔ Pros:
+ High performance comparing to competitive drives
+ Great option as HDD replacement
+ Suitable for laptops and desktops
+ Affordable (great for users who need an affordable storage solution to speed up their computers)
+ Low Power Consumption

✖ Cons:
<none>
I will update if I find anything on continuous use.

Overall, this is a great choice for a do-it-all drive that works much faster than a mechanical drive without breaking the budget.
I can’t evaluate long term reliability, but my initial impression is excellent.

4.0 out of 5 stars Rendimiento razonable con el driver actualizado
Reviewed in Spain on 20 May 2019
Lo primero que hago cuando instalo un disco duro o ssd es hacer un test de rendimiento con alguna aplicación, pero estas no son los suficientemente fiables porque no ofrecen un valor real de mantenimiento de tasa de transferencia. Para ello, genero un único archivo de 10gb en otras ssd y me ayudo de un cronómetro. En mi primera prueba me asusté porque las bajadas de velocidad eran preocupantes, de hecho, solicité la devolución del producto. Me disponía a desmontar la BX500 y pensé en darle una nueva oportunidad, actualizando el driver. Los resultados mejoraron bastante y las caídas se redujeron, no bajando de los 100mb/s, cifra más razonable y similar a la Samsung 860evo. La serie BX500 es algo más económica que la MX500 por su menor rendimiento, como así lo corroboran también los resultados comparativos que pude encontrar aquí: http://bit.ly/2VC80b8

El primer gráfico muestra las enormes caídas de escritura con un archivo de 10gb. En el segundo con el driver actualizado. El resto son diferentes análisis con softwares gratuitos.

CONCLUSIÓN: Este tipo de ssd económicas con tecnlogogía TLC funcionan muy bien en lectura, pero en escritura parece que les cuesta mantener la tasa, a pesar de lo que indican los softwares populares que miden su rendimiento. Es importante tener el driver actualizado como insisten todos los fabricante. La BX500 puede ser una buena compra para ahorrar algo si se destina a un ordenador poco exigente.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ziemlich gut aber nur mit zusätzlicher Kühlung
Reviewed in Germany on 31 July 2020
Nachdem sie jetzt endlich auf dem Markt ist, habe ich mir die Crucial P5 in der 500 GB Version gekauft. Zum direkten Vergleich besitze ich auch eine Samsung 970 EVO Plus mit 500 GB im gleichen PC.

Unter Windows 10 liegen beide SSDs im CrystalDiskMark in Summe fast auf Augenhöhe (mit dem Samsung NVMe-Treiber v3.3), siehe Bilder.

Im AS-SSD Benchmark liegen die Werte der P5 sogar etwas höher als bei der EVO Plus:

Crucial P5 read = 2530, write = 2520
EVO Plus read = 2510, write = 2330

Wer die P5 unter Windows 7 betreiben will, benötigt zwingend den aktuellen x64_Legacy NVMe-Treiber von 'Micron' (Crucial=Micron), da die P5 mit dem Microsoft NVMe Treiber KB2990941 extrem schlecht performt (bestenfalls nur noch halbe Geschwindigkeit!). Außerdem stürzt der Microsoft Treiber auf vielen W7-Systemen mit einen 007E BSOD ab, wofür man dann auch noch den Hotfix KB3087873 benötigt.

Um den aktuellen 'Micron'-Treiber v2.1.15.56 (enthält W10 und W7 Treiber) zu erhalten, muss man bei Micron einen Customer-Account anlegen. Bei 'Crucial' selbst findet man keine NVMe Treiber, außer der Crucial-Storage-Executive SSD-Software, die zwar fehlende Treiber anmahnt, aber selbst nicht downloaden und installieren kann.

Wenn im Betrieb der Cache der P5 voll ist bricht die Schreibgeschwindigkeit kurz ein und stabilisiert sich dann aber bei rund 2000 MB/s Steady State (siehe Bild), sofern sie noch 'reichlich' leere Zellen hat. Allerdings geht es mit der Schreibrate steil bergab wenn sie zu heiß wird. Die P5 wird ebenso wie die 970 EVO Plus sehr schnell sehr heiß! Aber immerhin erreicht sie eine Steady State Geschwindigkeit von sehr guten 2000 MB/s und deswegen habe ich sie mir gekauft, denn ich benötige sie zum Cachen in einem 10 GBit/s Netzwerk. Die EVO Plus kann ich dafür nicht brauchen, denn die bricht schnell auf eine Steady State Phase von 800 MB/s ein.

Im Standby bei offenem PC-Aufbau (Raumtemperatur 20°C, keine Kühl- oder Wärmequellen in der Nähe) erreicht die Crucial P5 bei mir nach kurzer Zeit rund 47°C, nahezu identisch mit der EVO Plus. Bereits wenige größere Schreibvorgänge oder Benchmark-Tests lassen die Temperatur rapide ansteigen und bei finalen 75°C bremst die Crucial dann auf SATA-III Geschwindigkeit herunter. Die 500 GB 970 EVO Plus kann unter allen Konditionen inclusive Thermal Throttling immer noch knapp 750 MB/s halten, die Crucial P5 fällt da aber deutlich unter 500 MB/s ab. Bei guter Kühlung mittels Cryorig Frostbit oder Sabrent Rocket Cooler gibt es aber bei beiden überhaupt keine thermische Drosselung.

Mein Fazit: die 500 GB Crucial P5 performt in manchen Punkten sogar besser als die 500 GB 970 EVO Plus und ist aktuell rund 15% billiger. Aber ohne vernünftige zusätzliche Kühlung wird sie ebenso wie die EVO Plus ziemlich schnell zur Spaßbremse.
