Run your system longer than ever before -using less power.
-With Extreme Energy Efficiency technology, the Crucial MX100 is up to 94% more energy efficient than a typical hard drive.

Push your drive to the limit and avoid overheating.
-Adaptive Thermal Protection technology enables the Crucial MX100 to dynamically adjust activity based on how you're using the drive, allowing your system to stay cool.

Keep your memories, photos, and files safe.
-When a photo or file gets corrupted, it often becomes unusable. Prevent this from happening in the first place. Every NAND component in the MX100 is armed with four layers of Exclusive Data Defense.

Protect all your data - even if the power goes out.
-With Power Loss Protection, if you happen to be saving a file and you suddenly loose power, your data will still be preserved.

Do More - Faster.
-Get true 550 MB/s sequential reads on both compressible and incompressible data - and leave your old 177 MB/s hard drive in the dust.

Get best-in-class hardware encryption.
-Keep personal files information secure from hackers and thieves with AES 256-bit encryption - the same grade used by banks and hospitals. The MX100 meets Microsoft eDrive, IEEE-1667, and TCG Opal 2.0.

Save and transfer files in seconds rather than minutes.
-Our exclusive Native Write Acceleration technology spreads the drive's workload across several elements, enabling you to perform write-related tasks in seconds rather than minutes.

Attain consistently fast speeds without compromising data reliability.
-Our engineers created RAIN technology. This enterprise-class, RAID-like technology increases the protection of data to a level rarely seen in consumer SSD's.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat SSD for the price

This review is from: Crucial MX100 CT256MX100SSD1 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: runs about whats its speced for..lots of SSD's dont come close to what they market the speeds..Mine benched r490/w333 which I'm happy with. I have about a 6 second boot..

Cons: didnt come with any extra cables..which is normal, but I think they really should supply hardware with what it needs to get working.

5 out of 5 eggsWow... Good drive

This review is from: Crucial MX100 CT256MX100SSD1 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Silent! Low power consumption! Easy to setup, format, and use. Marvell controller.

Cons: Doesn't come with a 3.5" adapter. Luckily, my new case's plastic drive treys had screw mounting holes in the appropriate places to simply screw mount this drive to the trey.

Other Thoughts: I have used a number of performance drives in the past, notably a 12 drive SCSI array with 10k RPM drives, RAID 0 across a number of single platter SATA drives, and even a 10k RPM SATA drive. This thing is a LOT faster, uses a tiny trickle of electricity, and generates very low heat. I absolutely love this drive, and wish I had purchased more of them! In my computer, I am running this drive along side three 1TB single platter drives and a single platter 500 GB drive. Windows lives on a 1 TB drive, my install files and documents live on another 1 TB drive, the third houses my music, anime on the 500GB, and my games live on the SSD. I play FS X, and due to the massive speed of this drive, the annoying screen flashing while loading files is non-existent. This is also an absolute dream for running MMO's, files load so fast, it smooths out the games remarkably.

I would recommend this drive!

Pros: Well, just put it in an old system, and installed Win8.1
Zero problems, took all of 20 minutes to install the OS
Seems real snapy

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing for the price

This review is from: Crucial MX100 CT256MX100SSD1 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Fast with good transfer and write speeds.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Purchased this locally(Korea) for less since Newegg still has bloated shipping to APO. If your looking for a good 256GB SSD, this is worth a look.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat for the price

This review is from: Crucial MX100 CT256MX100SSD1 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: bought 2. 1 for vista laptop which now boots in about 30 seconds compared to over 2 minutes before with 5400 rpm hdd. 1 for win 7 desktop boots faster than it did with 7200 rpm hdd. wei went from 5.9 to 7.8 win 7.
cloned both hdd drives using crucial cloning kit. cloning went like a breeze. had no problems even though SSD had less capacity than either HDD.

Cons: not the fastest SSD out there but I new this in advance

This review is from: Crucial MX100 CT256MX100SSD1 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Low cost per gb. Great speed! With my os and all my programs on it, sequential reads are 515mbps and write is 330mbps according to asssd.
