As we mentioned, both SSDs are actually very important in terms of technical details (we'll see soon), but also in terms of price. We will compare the 1 TB capacity models on both products, because in the case of Samsung the low power they provide. It should be mentioned, in any case, that in the case of solid state TB devices the price is cheap in both cases.

In terms of capabilities, the main difference is that the Crr model model offers smaller size while the Samsung model starts at 1 TB. Of course, in this case Samsung offers something completely unrelated to Crversal, and it's a 4-capacity model, so if you're a user looking for a high value on SSD, you already have a good choice.
By that to work they both have the right speed: Crucial wins by 10 MB / s in reading but Samsung wins by writing the same difference, something that in the end is almost unpleasant so we invent technical tie.
Two SSDs have one cell memory technology as well the same rigidity, 360 TBW, but for some reason Crucial offers two more years warranty than Samsung, so there is a point to it. Of course, instead of Samsung we should mention its excellent Maganga software that will help us fine tune the device's boundaries.
With regard to each technology, Crucial MX500 we need to emphasize:
- Powerful typing speed.
- Nundund Independent Array (RAIN).
- Adjustable thermal protection.
- Combined energy absorption.
- Device hibernation support (DevS sleep).
- Active garbage collection.
- TRIM support.
- Authentication and Reporting Technology (S.M.A.R.T.).
- Error correction code (ECC).
- An algorithm for multi-dimensional data.
On their own, this is the most amazing technology in the Samsung 860 QVO:
- TRIM support.
- 256 bit AES, TCG / Opal and IEEE16667 encryption.
- Support of S.M.A.R.T.
- Auto Gargg Collection Algorithm.
Although Samsung wins here in support of a different version, the MX500 is, in fact, an old SSD, coupled with a good technical catalog, which, made by grandmother, has made it an excellent SSD and finally made a difference.
Which SSD is best?
In fact both candidates are very big in everything, and it is the small production of each producer that can make a difference, even though the difference will always be very small. In any case, it should be said that the Crucial MX500 is slightly higher than the Samsung 860 QVO, although it is true that the latter is offered in higher priced models (4 TB).
Price difference among other things, other things being equal we will choose the Crucial MX500, but don't hesitate to buy the Samsung model if you want to save a few euros because when you use it every day. Not that you will notice much difference.
