    Good price, but i feel mx500 is far better. Again if you are upgrading from HDD to SDD "OP" item and price might appeal to you. Vu

    Edit:

    Mx 500 link and shows price 3500 with banner coming soon.

    Yes i know. Amazon sold this for as low as 5250 during GIF and post GIF of 2021. No stock of 1TB left. Even the last leg of sale has complaints of getting defective piec3s, courtesy reviews. Not my experience.

    happened with someone i know crucial ssd just stopped detecting all of a sudden.it worked very well earlier.kaizen service center is a mess.

    cyrstaldisk info kept on showing health as 100% so how can it go from working very well to not even detecting in pc?cant we trust this health monitor? all other drives work well.

    If bulk new drives are seeing death all of a sudden then it could be bad batch (Manufacturing defects like bad controller / QC). Bad firmware but less likely may be.

    + Do try SMART short & long DSTs for more accurate info (If Short test fails, no need to get the long one done)

    crystal disk info showed everything ok even health as 100%.this cannot be trusted?

    SMART attributes only provide estimation. Lets just say your drive got bad sectors, health status via crystaldiskinfo will be good until you try to read/write data to these bad sectors. 
    with Short DST, alongside read/write performance it also checks for mechanical issues and Long is an extensive version of Short DST which tests entire disk/sector (But like i said before, long test is unnecessary when Short itself fails)

    Ignore that, short & long dst tests are for HDDs not ssd because ssd has no mechanical components & that is why software like crystaldisk are not of much use for ssd because just like any electronics chips the ssd go bad/dead suddenly with no warning unlike hdd where failure/degradation in hdd mechanical components takes days/weeks/months to reach the failure point(still there are cases where hdd also fail suddenly but those are in minority & usually happen because of a sudden physical shock/voltage surge etc).

    Many popular brands (WD, Seagate, Samsung & ..) got their own diagnostic tools but some only support their drives. For Ex: Samsung magician app works only with Samsung SSDs (Short,Full Scan for data integrity, read errors & Short & Extended DST for drive failure prediction). Just get the short +/ long DSTs done to make sure the SSD got no bad sectors and other issues

    Edit: SeaTools is working with all branded drives

    My Crucial SSD has a lot of bad sectors. Do I need to replace it?

    With a traditional hard drive, that is often the case, but with an SSD things are a bit different. Due to the nature of flash technology it's normal to have a small number of bad sectors on an SSD, and as long as the number of bad sectors remains constant there is no reason for concern. The number of errors/bad sectors cannot be reset on an SSD. The firmware on the SSD keeps track of all bad sectors and marks them as unusable. So even though the bad sectors are present on the drive they never come into play, and data is never written to them.

    The easiest way to keep track of the number of bad sectors on an SSD is to run ChkDsk (short for "check disk") in Windows®. After checking the drive, ChkDsk will report the number of bad sectors it found. Make a note of what that number is, and run ChkDsk again after a couple of days. You may also monitor the health your SSD by using Storage Executive. Storage Executive is a free downloadable tool that allows you to monitor your drive's overall health. If the number of bad sectors remains the same, all is well. If the number of bad sectors is increasing over time, contact customer service for your region for assistance.
    No need to reply to this post of mine as I won't be seeing it or this thread anymore. You are free to post in a new post something similar from any other ssd manufacturer website to contradict the above statement from crucial official website. This post is only for other members reference.

    @kukdookoo ssd almost always fail suddenly & there is very little chance one will get some sort of warning signs from some test before that happens. If you are paranoid about something then of course these things don't matter but then you should put your paranoia to good use instead of wasting it. Instead of trying to "predict" your ssd health like hdd, a far better option is to assume ssd can fail any time & make backup of all your critical data on that ssd to some other drive/cloud storage. Also, what getready forgot to tell you is that ssd manufacturer only consider their own diagnostic tool result for approving rma & not some 3rd party tool/other manufacturer tool result so it doesn't matter if your ssd fail every test of seagate sea tools or any other ssd tool, the rma won't be approved unless it fails crucial own diagnostic tool test.

      It doesn't matter which app you use for DSTs, if one fails (Short / Long) then rest assured there's something wrong with your drive. Like i said before, it is expected for CrystalDiskInfo to show drive health as 100% because it is new & empty/partially filled (& certain brand specific tools assess health based on TB written). Once you start filling it up or try extended tests like these (read/write & the rest) bad sectors (if any) get accessed, errors gets logged and the SMART apps will report the same.

      Crucial didn't specify which (Guess you can figure it out based on the test duration, short <5min) but you can also do DST with their Crucial Storage Executive tool
