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 RealSSD C300 128 GB SATA 6 Gb/s

 

Crucial's RealSSD C300 shows impressive real-life performance in both SATA-II and SATA 6 Gb/s mode. When running on a SATA-II controller it is able to surpass most of the Sandforce based drives, in 6 Gb/s mode it even manages to be the fastest SSD we...

Great price/performance ratio, SATA 6 Gb/s support, Excellent real-life performance, Supports TRIM, Rugged metal case

Can not max out SATA 6 Gb/s interface, Relatively low [synthetic] write speeds

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....
