Samsung 860 EVO 250GB - $57.99

Crucial MX500 250GB 3D NAND - $49.95

WD Blue 3D NAND 250GB - $49.30

SanDisk Ultra 3D NAND 250GB - $49.99

Which one will be better? They would all go in office computers to replace 5400rpm drives. I just want the one that will last the longest and be fast at the same time. 

 

Thanks.

You'd have to look up benchmarks for each and compare them. But I'd go for the Samsung personally, just can't be beat.

The Samsung 860 EVO is the most reputable SATA SSD on the market, and has great speeds (for a SATA SSD) and endurance.

 

The MX500 is very similar to the 860 EVO, but usually cheaper. I'd personally go for the 860 EVO even if it's a bit more expensive than the MX500 because I've had really great experiences with Samsung SSDs in the past (with my 840 PRO).

Honestly all 3 are pretty on pair, I'd get either the SanDisk Ultra or the MX500 because they perform and have about the same reliability as the Samsung Evo without that extra premium for a brand name.

I'd go with the Samsung drive out of all of them. I've been using a 250GB 850 Evo for around 4 years now and haven't had a single issue with it, and it's quite fast too. I also have a 500GB 850 Evo, no issues with that one either, and it has at least 20TB written to it so far.

Samsung's drives are some of the most reliable ones out there. You can't really go wrong by picking them.

for office use, speed doesnt matter, you may want longest TBW, assume crazy downloads?

samsung seems to have longest TBW

If I'm going on TBW shouldn't I go with the WD? It says 500TBW

nope, I just see 100tbw for wd blue 250g

From WD.com

 

Quote

An SSD is designed with no moving parts to help protect against data loss if it is accidentally bumped or dropped. And with 1.75M hours MTTF (mean time to failure), up to 500 TBW (terabytes written), and several error correction technologies, WD Blue 3D NAND SATA SSDs can help guard data for years to come.
