Standard at this price & for a typical user coming from a hdd it still will be a great performance boost.

No. TBW will be less and SSD life will be less.
MX500 available at ₹4500 = 500gb + discounts.

Unless you are downloading 100GB+ of torrents daily you will never cross the TBW limit of 120TB for this model before the laptop/pc itself need replacement/upgrade. If price difference is less than 500 between this & MX500 then later is a definite buy but for 1k+ difference it is not something which many can accommodate by stretching their original budget.

This will be a good fit for a Windows To Go drive, right? I have currently installed it on an external HDD and while the performance is kinda OK I don’t want to use a HDD for anything other than media backups. I will reuse an existing Orico USB 3 enclosure that supports UASP. Rest of the drive will house 3-4 Linux distro installations.

It should be alright but keep in mind that for windows OS performance the most important speeds are random 4k read write speeds which this(& other dram less) drive has in the range of 28MB/s(read) to 38MB/s(write). Also you need to check with driver compatibility of various hardware devices in local system as orico usb 3 enclosure will show up in windows as a removable drive but not as usb drive which might affect something(heard that rufus handles windows to go better).

This drive really sucks if you’re using it for anything more than light browsing or other tasks from the 90’s, have 1TB version & it’s slow as hell when the writes pile up. In comparison my Liteon 256GB drives from 7 years back beat it under similar loads 😒

Yes I had used Rufus to create the Windows To Go installation in my external HDD. Maybe I will wait for a deal on a TLC drive instead. Even a 250GB one will suffice for my needs.

What are you talking about, I also have a smaller version of this drive as OS drive & though slower than ssd with dram it is still much better than my previous typical hdd. I only feel it is slow as hell(compared to my NVMe drive) when I download a 10gb+ file using download manager with 4-5 concurrent connections or try to extract a 20-30GB+ zip/rar file to same drive.

Why are you comparing this just with HDD? We’ve had SSD’s for nearly 1.5 decades now & even SSD’s from 5+ years back are much better! This should be avoided unless it’s the only option one has. Pay 10-20% more for a lot better & consistent performance.

I know what’s TBW, I specifically mentioned 100GB+ torrents because of their much more pronounced write amplification effect compared to typical bandwidth heavy tasks like multi segment downloading using browser/download manager.

As long as majority of ppl are using hdd it is irrelevant how worse cheap dram less ssd are compared to dram ssd. India is a budget market where ppl will gladly sacrifice 50% of the performance gain for 25% reduction in price(also the reason why majority of psu sold in India even by established manufacturers are their lowest tier products designed/focused especially for Indian mkt). Once majority of ppl move on to ssd(& in India that means cheap dram less ssd) then we can discuss about how bad or pointless it is to buy them when much better ssd are available for 10-20% more price.

You are missing many things.
video editing, converting, content creators. Also many more things..
Yes normal office software user’s will not nead that much TBW. But eventually it won’t last compared to dram or i can say you can use more than TBW value when dram is there..
