I decided to purchase this new Crucial MX300 750GB to replace my aging 250GB Samsung 840 EVO as my Windows 10 boot drive in my desktop computer. I have previously used Crucial's 64GB C300 series as well as their 1TB MX200 series SSD's and I always choose them for their performance, reliability, and longevity. Crucial states that this drive should be able to sustain up to 220TB of writes, as it contains Micron's latest 3D NAND technology. It's capable of reaching speeds of up to 530MB/sec read and 510MB/sec write, and I was able to get these speeds with Crystal DiskMark. The screenshot I have attached shows how much more of an improvement you get when you enable Momentum Cache, which is similar to Samsung's RAPID mode. This increases the endurance of the SSD by allowing the DRAM to absorb the random writes, as they tend to wear out the NAND cells faster than sequential writes. Crucial recommends that you only enable momentum cache for the SSD if you are in fact using it as...
Arrived on time and perfect condition! I had to put into an external docking case before instilling it to format it for MAC OS. I opted for a fresh install so i chose to install a brand new copy of El Capitan. This involved downloading a copy from the Apple store to a flash drive and the instaliing the new drive and running the set up from the flash drive. There are plenty of options to clone your current drive (some free) so you can clone and then install and you are done. My mid 2012 MBP saw a huge preformance increase with this drive. I changed to this HD and also went from 8gig of MEM to 16gig of MEM - it is like a brand new computer now.
This is a really nice drive with competitive specs, but not quite the best. The price per GB, the extra GB's in this size category along with it being made by Crucial and with a stated endurance of up to 220 TBW all add up to a great value. Some have complained that nothing comes with the drive and other than the 9mm spacer that is true, yet this is pretty much how most all drives are sold these days. The one drawback if you were hoping for a good migration tool is that they supply a key for downloading Acronis 2015 which recently was updated with patch 6613 and is now supposed to support Windows 10. I don't trust True Image any more after a simple cloning failed and corrupted my original drive.
I simply downloaded Macrium Reflect Free which is very reliable and supports Windows 10. The way that I configured my new drive may not be the fastest, but it is safe and reliable. After installing Reflect, I created a full verified system image and put a copy on an external USB 3...
