The Crucial MX500 has been our top SATA SSD recommendation for a little while now, so when I saw the 1TB model had been discounted to £67.64 on Amazon UK I had to tell you about it. You see, the MX500 is often the best value SSD available, and so far this year it’s sat around the £90 mark – so today’s ~25 percent discount on top of that is pretty outstanding.
As someone who used a 240GB SSD for years, it’s hard to describe how much better it feels to have a 1TB drive instead of – or in addition to! – a smaller capacity model. It means you don’t have to spend time re-downloading games you’ve deleted to save space, or going through your filesystem with a fine-tooth comb to cut out every unneeded megabyte. Instead, you get plenty of space for your Windows install, and a healthy collection of games, videos and other media.
This holds true whether you’re on a desktop or a laptop, although on the latter you will need to check whether your particular model uses SATA drives, M.2 drives or a combination (Crucial’s SSD buying guide can be handy here!)
