So far so good, fast and responsive. Easy to install. If you need to migrate data Crucial provides with a stripped down version of Acronis. Good SSD for the money to be honest nothing to complain about.
My first SSD and i can say it's pretty fast. You also get 275GB for the same price most other manufacturers sell their 250GB SSDs.
Very snappy and great value SSD. Price to storage is unbeatable and it boots windows 10 in 12 seconds. Definitely would recommend.
Going to use this drive for Manjaro Linux. SteamOS is cool but has a lot of confusion for setup. Imho Manjaro is easiest way to install Steam on Linux
First time using operating system on SSD. Didnt believe my eyes for the load times. Never seen OS loading so fast.
However this is a SSD review not OS one.
You cant really tell out of the box, if you installed correctly it should work.
Only time will tell how it will preform.
Good, solid SSD.
I love this generation of Crucial SSDs. Very fast for a TLC SSD. Nearly on par with a Samsung 850 EVO at 2/3 of the price. PCPP only has the 2.5" version listed, but I actually purchased an M.2 for the same price. Unfortunately it didn't work with my MSI B150I Gaming Pro AC Mini-ITX motherboard as of today, but a future BIOS update will fix that hopefully. I'm using the MX300 in my ASUS ROG laptop and the system boots in the same amount of time it takes to resume from sleep. Literally 3 seconds. So happy with this drive and I can't wait to get the other one working with my Media PC as well.
I posted the hard drive benchmarks I used for this build. Very happy for the price I purchased, took advantage of Black Friday. I think 275GB is good for a boot drive and you can store everything else on another drive.
It's not quite as good as the samsung evo, but what SSD is ?
Boot time is ridiculously fast, 3 seconds from pushing the start button to seeing my desktop.
