  1. Crucial M500 alternative

    plz more details
  2. Crucial M500 alternative

    No it's not desktop. Workstation mobo, dual cpu, each SSD disk is hosting one vmware guest (attached to several sas hba). Server is on 24/7 but usage of SSDs is low actually... I know that any of above SSDs would survive (even ocz vertex was used for 4 years of virtualization and health is 100%; but let's consider something newer than sandforce lol). So back to original question; what is decent alternative to e.g. Samsung 850 pro or EVO or good old MLCs ?? Does Crucial MX300 TLC has decent performance ? I see benchmarks are way below Samsung EVO; which is weird....
  3. I used to buy Crucial M500 and M550 960GB and was quite happy with them (speed, IOPs, etc). I need more drives, similar qualities but I am lost now among various nands, controllers and manufacturing processes 16nm, 20nm.... TLC, 3D TLC, 3D MLC; Toshiba vs Crucial vs Samsung Nand and Controllers of Phison, SIlicon Motion, Marwell ... Seriously, the more I read, the less I know... I came up with some conclusion that Marwell controller and Micron MLC would be good option; anyway ... 1) What drive do you suggest as good replacement ? 2) Also - has 3D TLC reached stability of old planar MLC drives already ? 3) Any of these are good candidates ?? Mushkin Reactor 960GB, SATA (MKNSSDRE960GB) - specs --> Micron 16nm 2D MLC & SM2246EN ADATA Premier SP610 1TB - specs --> Micron 20nm 2D MLC & SM2246EM (looks same as above but more expensive) ADATA Premier Pro SP920 1TB - specs --> 20nm Micron 2D MLC & Marvell 88SS9189 (price same as samsung 850 pro - pointless to buy) Crucial MX300 1TB, SATA (CT1050MX300SSD1) - specs --> Micron 3D TLC & Marwell 88SS1074 Micron SSD 1100 1TB - specs --> Micron 3D TLC & Marvell 88SS1074 (looks same as above but more expensive) Toshiba OCZ TR150 - specs --> Toshiba TLC 15nm & Toshiba TC58 - (looks like old controller....) Zotac T500 SSD 960GB --> Toshiba TLC & Phison Thanks a lot ! PS: I need to get more than a dozen... so in a way price does matter...
  4. How does this Toshiba compares to new NVME drives, e.g. : Samsung SSD 960 PRO 2TB, M.2 (MZ-V6P2T0BW)
  5. It is the slowest drive among 4 models tested. One thing that was left out of the conclusion is the price. So the question is: do you want slower SSD of 200GB from Seagate for 200 EU, or you need 200GB SSD from HGST which is 870 EU. Price ratio remains proportional for higher size SSDs as well. You will certainly think twice how you will use the drive before before making the final decision.
