    Re: Crucial reveals new SSDs and DDR4 memory modules

    Waiting on endurance numbers, as I worry the BX100 might be too TLC-like. On the other hand, MX200 seems to be coming at higher prices than the previous version, which could be explained if Crucial does intend on shutting down the M5xx series. So far, decently pleased with my 512GB MX100 but sure wouldn't mind higher endurance at not insanely expensive prices.

    You mean last for decades of normal usage? Don't see why that's a problem.

    Decades on far higher daily I/O usage? I think not. And before you say "get something DC from Intel, Samsung, etc", prices might not really be that feasible, even though I'm waiting for actual price drops on V-NAND from all manufacturers, even if only a few are doing it and milking it for what it's worth until it gets widespread.

    Higher than what? What level of writes are you talking about? What I'm calling normal usage is based on the Hexus thread about how much Hexus users are writing to their SSDs. That's something like 4.7TB/2 Years, and given TLC SSDs are lasting around 1PB worth of writes, we're talking 425 years for normal usage. Even if your usage is somehow 10x the usual Hexus user then that's still 40 years, so decades.

    Higher than average consumer, be it typical productivity, multimedia consumption and/or light gaming. Could you please link that thread? Wasn't aware of it and would be most interesting to read those numbers.

    One could go and say that before NAND got degraded, the controller would start getting erratic itself. My point is that Samsung's 850 SSDs' endurance would be most welcome as standard endurance for all SSDs, and manufacturers wouldn't be overly concerned over people not upgrading since there are still breaking points through which users could end up being forced to upgrade anyway.

    Once the new drives start arriving I hope there will be deals on the MX100. I could use a second one

    What's the general consensus about Crucial?

    Buy Kingston instead. Tends to be cheaper for the same/similar.

    Yes, because they use use OCZ style bait and switch sales tactics. Search for Kingston v300 slow
    OCZ vertex 25nm fiasco

    Crucial has budget priced, decently performing and reliable products (report numbers indicate such, alongside personal experiences and even Hexus member experiences), so it is a wortwhile brand, IMHO.

    We could add Nvidia, netgear and about all other companies to that list.

    Models change all the time. Only a fool would buy something on reviews/benchmarks unless they are buying exactly the same thing.

    Intel are rampant at doing it for mobile CPUs gpu clocks.

    I think you are talking about rebadging. In the cases I mentioned, the model numbers did not change
