Crucial C300 256GB SSD Review


It's about damn time. 6Gb/s SATA is old news now. It's been half a year since we saw the first 6Gb/s SATA–enabled hard drive, and it was a frickin' mechanical drive. Talk about unnecessary. Solid state drives, on the other hand, have been bumping at...

Fastest read speeds ever; decent write speeds

Random writes can't touch SandForce drives; write-speed slowdowns after use

There’s no question that on a 6Gb/s SATA port, the Crucial C300 has by far the fastest read speeds we’ve ever seen. And on a 3Gb/s port, it’s nothing to sneeze at. But for sequential and random write speeds, it can’t touch SandForce drives. And its...

Crucial C300 256GB SSD


Fastest drive on the market with SATA 6G connectivity.

The single biggest bottleneck in modern systems is indeed the traditional plattered hard drive, and using an SSD in your system will make such a difference that you'll want to cry if faced with having to use an HDD afterwards. No exaggeration, the...

Crucial RealSSD C300 64GB Review


The RealSSD C300 is Crucial's current flagship SSD and comes in 256GB, 128GB and 64GB flavours, the latter of which we are reviewing today. The unique selling point of the C300 is its Marvell controller which is the first to offer a native 6Gb/s......

Superlative read speed ; Native 6Gb/s interface ; Well-optimised TRIM ; Extremely good value

Write speeds are mediocre

The 256GB Crucial RealSSD is one of the quickest drives on the market, and most of what makes it great is also included in this low cost variant. For the vast majority of home users this is the affordable SSD to buy.

Crucial RealSSD C300 256GB


Slow secondary storage has been the biggest persistent gripe about PC gaming for quite a while now. While CPUs, RAM, graphics cards and system busses have all been improving at a steady rate; hard drives have stayed more or less stagnant for the past...

Promises are one of the few truly binary things in this world; you either keep them or you break them. Today, we'll see which side Crucial has landed on

Crucial RealSSD C300 256GB CTFDDAC256MAG-1G1


The Crucial RealSSD C300 256GB drive is the fastest drive to cross our test bench, so far. What more do you need to know?

Wow. Maxing out a Gen2 Serial ATA controller? Granted, the drive is very expensive (retail is hitting $600-700, Newegg Link, Amazon Link). If money is no option and speed is everything, this is the drive for you. Crucial has done something very unique....

128GB Crucial RealSSD C300 2.5-inch SATA 6Gb/s


Back at CES2010 Crucial showed off their upcoming SATA 3.0 (6Gbps) drive and the time has come for it to launch and hit the retail shelves. In fact, this drive has been around for a while and we are certainly not the first to the punch when it comes to...

Very fast read performance ; First SATA 6Gbps drive on the market ; Exceeds rated read performance ; Supports TRIM, SMART and SE ; Fast read and write speeds on 4K random tests

3 year warranty seems a bit low ; Slower write speeds that Crucial's earlier M225 SSD

It's nice to see the C300 from Crucial is on the cutting edge of performance and technology. They use their own NAND and RAM in this unit, combine it with a great SATA 6Gbps capable controller from Marvell and let the good times roll. It has blistering...

Crucial RealSSD C300 64GB review


Today we have in our labs Crucial's latest mid-range addition to its C300 series of Solid State Drives (SSD). The Crucial RealSSD C300 64GB is offering a capacity of 64GB and it is also comparatively cheap. The new drive could attract many enthusiasts...

Even SSDs have been available at the market for quite some time now, their prices have remained high compared to HDDs. For example, Crucial's 256GB version of the RealSSD series retails for more than $700! But at the same time, you will pay just $2.2...
