For those who want to build a new PC or breathe new life into an old system, we bring you a few storage units. We have, on the one hand, two Solid State Drives in 2.5-inch format and, on the other hand, a M.2 PCIe Gen4 drive. These storage units have up to one 40% off.
The first of the units is the well known Kingston A400 480 GB, a simple SSD with a very tight price and good performance. If you want a little more performance and quality, we have the unit. Crucial MX500 500 GB. Finally, we have the unit WD Black SN750 SE 500GB which uses the PCIe 4.0 interface.
Kingston A400 480 GB, good, beautiful and cheap
this storage unit 2.5 inch SSD
This unit gives us a 480 GB capacity, which is more than enough for daily use and gaming. Regarding performance, this device offers us a speed of read up to 500 MB/s and a speed of Write up to 450MB/s. Durability stands out, as this unit has a useful life of 1.92 TBW.
If you are looking for a good, reliable unit at a good price, this unit is the best on the market. It has been put to the test in countless tests and has always performed very well.
Crucial MX500 500 GB, for those looking for something more
You may be looking for a slightly better quality unit with slightly better performance. This drive is an excellent choice, as Crucial is the brand name of Micron, a well-known manufacturer of memory for both SSDs and graphics cards. In addition, it uses slightly better memories and allows data encryption.
The Crucial unit is characterized by offering a 500 GB capacity, which is usually the usual capacity. This unit offers us a speed of 560 MB/s read and a speed of 510 MB/s write. This unit is based on Micron NAND 3D memoriesHow could it be otherwise.
It stands out for the technology offer Dynamic write acceleration which uses a high-speed, single-level cellular flash memory array to deliver excellent performance. To ensure data security, this reader offers us SHA-256 encryption by material.
A very good performance unit, which can be a great option as a main unit for our new gaming computer. It offers additional features which can be useful, such as hardware encryption.
WD Black SN750 SE 500 GB, without cables and at full speed
Just as 2.5″ SSDs have replaced HDDs, M.2 PCIe SSDs are replacing the first hard drives we just mentioned. This drive from WD is not one of the best with PCIe Gen4 interfacebut offers an excellent price/performance ratio.
This Western Digital player has a 500 GB capacity and is characterized by supporting the PCIe 4.0 interface. This unit offers us a speed of read up to 3600 MB/s and speed of write up to 2000 MB/s. Therefore, you are far from taking advantage of all that the PCIe 4.0 interface has to offer.
One of the advantages of this reader is that it mounts directly on the motherboard. This means we don’t need cables, so the system is cleaner. But note that, as with any M.2 drive, a heatsink is required to prevent performance loss.
Although it is quite an interesting unit, the truth is that the performance is somewhat poor. This can be a good option for those on a tight budget, as the jump in performance over SATA drives is remarkable.
