Leftover SSD from a previous build, it's now exclusively a blizzard game drive.

I used this as my O.S. boot drive for over a year and it performed very well. Quiet, fast, and reliable. I recently replaced it with an M.2 drive and decided to repurpos this as an external SSD for my XBox One.

Very good SSD for the money. Booting to windows is so quick! Crucial's Storage Executive Software is good too - you can easily upgrade the drive's firmware and set up over-provisioning.

Fast, small, cheap- does what it needs to which is boot up and load programs quickly. No complaints.

Reliable, fast, and reasonably priced, but you can get a Crucial P1 for the same price in most places and that one is NVMe. I kinda wish I had known about that when I bought this, but honestly it's still plenty fast and there's a good chance most people wouldn't be able to tell the difference in speed anyways, plus this is TLC flash vs QLC on the P1.

from completed build Carryable Mini-ITX PC.
I chose it because it has DRAM cache.(500GB model has 512MB DDR3)
After all, do SSDs need DRAM cache?
Teach me, wise man!

Not as fast as Samsung 860 but I wanted to give it a try since is a new model MX-500 at the time that I bought it.
