Crucial MX100 256GB

 

Can Crucial's dirt-cheap MX100 SSD take the fight to expensive competitors?

Phenomenal price ; Good large read speeds ; 9.5mm adapter included

Falters in other benchmarks ; Mediocre endurance level ; Three-year warranty

The MX100’s endurance rating of 72TB is decidedly average – half as much as the Samsung 850 Pro. Many other drives also promise greater longevity, although most consumers shouldn’t be concerned unless they’re running lots of heavy workloads.

Verdict

 

It looks like Crucial has a winner on its hands here with the Crucial MX100 256GB SDD. As we have stated in the past SSDs are not generally that exciting, but this one is a little more interesting than some of the others at least, because the MX100 has...

Crucial MX100 512GB Solid State Drive Review

 

Remarkable price point per GB, Strong levels of performance for the budget market, Well known vendor, 3 year warranty

Performance can fluctuate as the drive volume fills

For a long time, the difference between the budget and high performance ends of the SSD market have been rather spread out and when you then look at the drive capacities that are available compared to the price, to get 512GB of fast storage at this...

Crucial MX100 (256GB & 512GB) Review

 

The short summary is that the MX100 builds on the same architecture as the M500 and M550. The only fundamental difference is the NAND inside as the controller is the same Marvell 88SS9189 silicon as found inside the M550. The 9189 is a minor upgrade...

Shortly put, the MX100's task is to replace the M500 and it does that brilliantly. While the MX100's main goal is to lower the price by using smaller lithography NAND, it also provides a minor increase in performance over the M500 and offers the same...
