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...

Crucial MX100 512GB SSD Review

 

Despite what many people will try to tell you, size matters. This is especially true when talking about the storage in your computer. SSDs are becoming the standard for any new build but the cost has always been an issue, especially once you get in to...

Crucial MX100 512GB SSD review

 

Crucial announced during last month's Computex the Crucial MX100, its new mainstream solid-state drive, brought to replace the M500 series while the M550 will continue to serve the higher performance market.

We find it hard to list any negative for the MX100. With the performance and feature set, combined with pricing, the choice is obvious, unless you are an enthusiast or professional with a heavy IO workload.

Crucial MX100 2.5" SSD Full Review - 16nm Flash Makes an Appearance

 

Back in July of last year, Micron announced production of 16nm flash memory. These were the same 128gbit dies as the previous gen parts, but 16nm means the dies are smaller, meaning more dies from a single wafer, ultimately translating to lower end...

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.
