From what I've read, the BX500s are TLC but they are not particularly great SSDs. They have no DRAM; instead using unused NAND for caching. This can dramatically hurt performance and will reduce overall write life. If you are looking for a reliable budget SSD, stick the Crucial MX500 series. They are better drives with more usable capacity, speed, and life. The warranty on the BX500 series is only three years while the MX500 is five years.

I prefer (and recommend) the Samsung 860 Pros and EVOs (which one depends on usage) but they are pricier than the MX500s.

I just bought the 1tb bx500 with around $77 US dollars. MX500 is too expensive.

Really? If you had shopped around a little, the MX500 isn't much more expensive and is umpteen times better.
