Crucial MX300 SSD Review Discussion

Recommended Posts

As the first Crucial product leveraging Micron's new 3D TLC NAND, the MX300 SSD promises to bring single-level cell endurance and triple-level cell density and value to consumers. The MX300 is currently available in a 750GB 2.5-inch form factor, with more models slated for release later in 2016 (including more capacity options and M.2 form factors). Crucial reports transfer speeds of 530MB/s read and 510MB/s write as well as an endurance rating of 220 TBW.

We're more interested in the features and performance for this. On the NAND side, we probably could do a deeper dive if Micron is open to it.

The performance is certainly behind the competition, but I guess it's a decent bargain.

The Samsung SSD 850 Pro is about 50% more in terms of cost per GB. I'd assume up to 2TB will be released.

Micron typically isn't tip of spear in any way...but they should be built well and at the right price, not a bad option.

"Once the cover is removed, one can easily see that the drive uses a Micron controller, Micron DRAM, and Micron NAND packs"

That's a Marvell controller, not a Micron one.

You are correct. It has been changed.
