I found that some deals giving 2 discounts on SSD so I posted here. There may be more available on Flipkart on other SSD.
So, I didn't checked if it's a good SSD or not.

What about this purchase mx500 500gb for ₹4697, From Flipkart?
₹4697 on Flipkart. Purchased. Inclusive of all discounts.
Is it genuine? Means the product on Flipkart.
Because on crucial website it's only mentioned Amazon site.

I will be using ssd for the first time, any instructions?
Any other software is needed other than "crucial storage executive"?
should I do the upgrade firmware in future?
iirc i did the firmware upgrade only once. i don't remember doing anything special. just straight clean install.

Never do firmware upgrade on hdd/ssd unless you are facing a serious issue for which the only solution is firmware upgrade & you have taken the backup of all the data(at least important one) in the hdd/ssd.

You don't even need special software for the SSD to work properly. Since, this is a clean SSD. You can do the firmware upgrade.
Just use Crystal Disk Info for monitoring it.

i think i did that immediately after installing windows. since then i never checked it as everything is working fine. i think it gave me a warning of that sort to backup important data.
moreover i regularly work in a limited account as sometimes i visit ahem sites so from this account the software is not accessible. thanks dear.
