The Crucial BX200 480GB is targeted at users on a tight budget who don't want to sacrifice on performance. Can the BX200 from Crucial save your day?

I think it’s safe to say that the Crucial BX200 480GB SSD has quite a lot going for it when you consider the overall package and all sides to the story. On the one hand, you have a drive which isn’t only just competitively priced, but offers a large...

Crucial BX200 Review (480GB & 960GB)

 

Crucial enters its first TLC NAND SSD into the market, and the pricing is pretty sweet

Ultimately, buying an SSD is a question of how much you’re willing to sacrifice to attain a lower price per gigabyte. With the BX200, you don’t get advanced features like power loss protection or hardware accelerated encryption, and the performance...

Crucial BX200 Review

 

Destined to supersede the BX100, BX200 is Micron's first TLC-based solid state drive using the SM2256 Controller. Looking for an affordable SSD? This is it!

Crucial BX200 960GB SSD Drive Review

 

The Crucial BX200 960GB SSD Drive should be considered and excellent value for anyone looking to build a good performing PC or speed up an older one. We recommend taking any older computer (2-3 years old) that has a traditional platter drive and...

Review: Crucial BX200 480GB SSD

 

Not as cheap as it needs to be.

... unless Crucial can bring the cost of the BX200 well below competing drives, its smaller SLC cache makes it hard to swallow.

Crucial BX200 (480GB) Review and Ratings

 

The BX200 is a passable upgrade over a spinning-platter hard drive, but it offers little to recommend it over its competitors, or its BX100 predecessor. Until the price falls, plenty of better (and better-performing) options are available.

Great software package ; Good sequential read/write performance
