  1. Hi Tech Legend

    I have a laptop that does not support m.2 nVME. My question for you is –

    1. Should I go with Samsung 870 Evo or Mx500?


    1. Get the SSD that is cheaper, both are good. The Samsung is slightly faster but you will not notice that speed difference in your daily usage.

  2. I have used 40-50 mx500s and had no problem with any.
    These are very reliable and fast customers remark their computers are faster than new when changed over to Crucial ssds.

  3. Hi Techs,
    I need to install the SSD in my homelab in proxmox for virtual machines.
    So Mx500 is good for this purpose?
