    I personally never had an issue with my mx500 2TB in my second rig, for me the main issue with Crucial is the warranty it is just as bad as Asrock if you do intend to sell it in the used market. If the price of the Crucial drives are not cheap enough I will still grab Samsung or Intel equivalent even if I have to pay some more money.

    I've got two MX500s in my house, both of which are the first SSDs I've ever owned. One on my HTPC and the other on my very old 2007 MBP running Linux. Both haven't had any issues :thumbup:

    Bit the bullet & went with the MX500 1TB drive from Amazon to go into wifes new MSI GL75 laptop for additional storage...

    Dam day after I bought the Laptop I could have got the GXT2070 in place of the GTX2060 c/w additional 1TB hdd & a 240z refresh rate rather than her 144hz dispaly....for just another $250 :(

    Oh well wife likes her Laptop & i get to use the laptop to drive the VR setup in the theatre room, after not being able to use my new VR setup since Xmas. hehe :)

    Thanks for the reply, after some more research I rounded down to Samsung SM883 1.92T enterprise SSD around the ball park of 450AUD and P3700 2TB around 600 AUD and I think I might go with these and see how it goes, 17DWPD for a SSD I assume I can probably even pass this down to my grandchildren :shock:

    For those thinking to get P3605 with warranty left showing on Intel warranty check webpage from ebay/Taobao Intel may not provide warranty for these drive anymore, my seller told me Intel used to replace P3605 with P3700 equivalent back then but stopped doing that a while ago, also P3605 does not show the right amount of read/write as the SMART will reset them once a while unless you read it from an Oracle system.

    Some good Sammy deals around.

    Grabbed a 4TB from CA eBay on the weekend for $719. That should sort me for a while.

    $159 for a 1tb ssd is expensive, just got a bunch of crucials for i think $138 a pop and raided them as a swap store for my nvme m.2 and i can get similar throughput so it's not a terrible goer (don't care about reliable storage that's what a cold air gapped drive is for & the cloud for less sensitive data).

    Noice! They aren't always quick to fulfill their promotions but they do it. They probably have a massive number to fulfill with low resources. It's not the quickest but it get's there :thumbup:
