The BX series are cheap for a reason - they lack DRAM cache, so they're not very fast. I have a couple of them and wish i'd bought the faster ones.

Fair call. Still learning about key differences and overall reliability of different brands/models. Good if you're using this as a secondary drive. If you're patient or look abroad, might be able to get a Samsung QVO 1tb for a similar price. What would  you get instead?

Ive got one of the 480GB BX's in my box at home, and going from spinning disk, its a huge improvement regardless ;) But if you feel the need for speed, then yeah, stick to the MX.

I think I'm done buying SATA now, but my last couple were 860 EVOs.
