5.0 out of 5 stars Why and Why not to chose Crucial MX500 SSD? [Compared with Samsung 860EVO]
Reviewed in India on September 19, 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 Excelente rendimiento y precio por Gbyte
Reviewed in Spain on July 26, 2018
Aprovechando el Prime Day y la oferta que puso Amazon de este disco duro, lo compré a un precio más que aceptable (83 euros) en cuanto a la relación calidad precio era una oferta excelente. Ya tenía en mente comprar un SSD para acelerar mi equipo de unos 4 años y estuve barajando este disco duro Crucial y los de la otra marca con más opiniones favorables y más ventas, el SAMSUMG 850 EVO.

[[ASIN:B00P73B1E4 Samsung 850 EVO - Disco duro sólido (500 GB, Serial ATA III, 540 MB/s, 2.5"), negro]]

En cuanto a las comparaciónes de las características de ambos, que podemos encontrar en los "Benchmark" que existen por la web, vemos que tienen similares características y respuestas, por lo que cualquiera de estos dos SDD es una excelente opción para comprar, ya que en el momento de escribir estas líneas, están en Amazon al mismo precio. En el momento que bajen alguno de los dos (como ocurrió el día del Prime Day) ese sería, en mi opinión, el disco duro a elegir, si el precio es similar, quizás el Samsung es la mejor opción por los comentarios de los compradores, aunque esto último es relativo y es una apreciación personal.

En el caso del Crucial MX500 estas son:

- Incoporpora Micron ® 3D NAND.
- Soporta hasta SATA 6.0Gb/s (existen tres velocidades SATA I (1.5Gb/s), SATA II (3.0Gb/s) and SATA III (6.0Gb/s)).
- 560 MB/s de lectura secuencial y 510 MB/s escritura máxima.
- Garantía de 5 años por el fabricante (para España sólo 3).

En el caso del Samsung 850 esta son:

- Tecnología 3D V-NAND de Samsung.
- Interfaz SATA 6 Gb/s, compatible con el interfaz SATA 3 Gb/s & SATA 1,5 Gb/s.
- Hasta 540MB/s de lectura secuencial y 520MB/s de escritura
- Garantía de 5 años por el fabricante.

Otra opción es comprar el Crucial MX500 de 1Tb que tiene una relación precio/Gbyte excelente, pero era demasiado caro para mí, si el precio sigue rondando los 170 euros seguirá siendo una compra recomendable.

Experiencia de compra

En cuanto a mi experiencia de compra, puntualizo lo siguiente. En el momento de comprarlo existía dos opciones: paquete abre fácil o con caja original, un poco más caro. El paquete abre fácil consiste en que el disco duro te lo envían en dentro de un blíster de plástico con las instrucciones de uso y con un sobre de cartón, tal y como he mostrado en las fotografías. En mi opinión algo nefasto por que no protege el producto de golpes, al menos un sobre acolchado tendría que haberse incluido, por ser el producto del que se trata, aun así llegó en perfectas condiciones.

Lo primero que hice es comprobar las horas de uso del disco duro, dicha comprobación dio por resultado que era un disco duro completamente nuevo y sin usar.

Montaje

En mi caso monté el SSD como disco duro principal de mi portátil, sustituyendo el anterior por este y el normal lo he colocado en sustitución del grabador DVD del portátil, comprando para ello un adaptador.

Como el SSD ya venía formateado realicé la instalación desde cero de Windows 10 en él, decir que si tienes licencia original digital del sistema operativo, una vez que este se instala correctamente, esa licencia digital se actualiza y no se pierde. Teniendo de nuevo tu licencia completamente legal y activa.

Uso

Una vez montado y probado, el resultado es excepcional, se nota una enormidad el cambio de disco duro, el arranque es inmediato, la ejecución de aplicaciones, la instalación, etc., rejuvenece el ordenador en cuanto a velocidad de ejecución, es increíble lo que influye.

Es recomendable instalar la aplicación Crucial Storage Executive desde la página de Crucial, te da información de la salud del disco duro entre otras y además permite actualizar el firmware del propio disco duro de forma fácil y cómoda. Ojo, en mí caso utilizando el actualizador automático de la aplicación hizo que entrara el sistema operativo en bucle, al estropear el sector de arranque, error reconocido por ellos, solución en mi caso: volver a instalar Windows 10 de nuevo. Por lo tanto para evitar problemas actualizar el firmware desde el propio fichero del firmware descargado, no desde la opción automática del Crucial Storage Executive.

Resumen final.

Cosas que me ha gustado

- Disco duro excelente al precio que lo compré, aun al precio actual lo sigue siendo, se nota una barbaridad el rendimiento del portátil con el instalado.
- Al ser una memoria, no tiene ruido.
- Al precio idéntico tanto el de Samsung como el Crucial es una excelente opción de compra.
- Soporte en la web del fabricante tanto en software como en actualizaciones de firmware.

Cosas que no me han gustado

- El envío con escasa protección, aunque el producto sea nuevo sin usar, al menos un sobre acolchado sería lo ideal.

Recomendable sin dudar por la relación calidad precio que tiene y por el rendimiento excelente. En la semana que llevo de uso, es el día y la noche en cuanto a velocidad de ejecución y de arranque con respecto al disco duro normal que tenía.

Espero que esta opinión sea de utilidad.

Edición después de un mes de uso.

No he tenido ningún problema con el por ahora, ni pérdida de sistema operativo, ni sectores defectuosos ni nada por el estilo. Creo que los principales problemas que se presentan es al realizar la clonación, así que si es posible realizad una instalación desde cero del Windows 10.

Edición 28/11/2018.

El rendimiento sigue siendo el mismo, la temperatura sigue siendo baja y ninguna perdida de datos y sectores defectuoso, usado como disco principal con sistema operativo, encantado con el SSD.

Edición 01/08/2020

Casi dos años después el disco duro sigue funcionando perfectamente no se ha degradado en absoluto, mi uso principal ofimática general, algunas descargas, etc nada de juegos, pero lo recomiendo, ha salido realmente bueno.
