Obviously, if you need massive storage, the most profitable thing you can do is buy a traditional mechanical hard drive, but if your storage needs are not so great and you prefer higher speed and silence with lower consumption, then there is nothing better than resort to the 2.5-inch format in SSD with SATA 3 interface, because today they are the SSD with the best performance / capacity / price ratio on the market. So, we go there with the offers.
Crucial MX500 1TB
We can tell you little about this SSD that you do not know, since it is surely one of the most emblematic models and of course one of the best sellers on the market, thanks to its excellent performance, durability and price ratio. The offering model is the 1 TB capacity, and provides read speeds of up to 560 MB / s and up to 510 MB / s write, almost taking over the capacities of its SATA 3 interface.
This SSD, made using 3D NAND memory chips, has a durability of 360 TBW, which means that you could be using it in a conventional gaming PC (whose writing average is 30 GB per day) for more than 30 years without depleting its durability.
SanDisk SSD Plus SATA 3 1 TB
This is another of the top-selling SATA 3 SSD models, in this case more for its price (it is almost always, in fact, on sale) than for anything else, but that does not mean that it is an excellent alternative. It offers theoretical read speeds of up to 535 MB / s, while its write speed stays at 450 MB / s. The SSD uses MLC chips at 19 nm and has an estimated durability of 360 TBW, so like the previous one you could be using it every day and writing 30 GB a day for 30 years until it is exhausted.
Western Digital Blue 1 TB
When it comes to SSDs, the WD Blue family is the entry-level, but that doesn’t mean that this 1TB SSD isn’t also a very good alternative to expand your PC’s storage capacity for little money. It has theoretical speeds of up to 550 MB / s reading and 525 MB / s writing, almost taking over the capacity of its SATA 3 interface, and its 3DNAND chips give it a durability of 400 TBW, more than the previous two and for therefore with an even greater life expectancy.
