    Re: Reviews - Crucial MX100 (512GB)

    Just bought the 256GB version to use as my boot drive in a new build PC, and it's made a huge difference from the 500GB 7200RPM disc in my old one.

    Getting 520Mb Read and 330Mb write...



    not the fastest SSD for sure, but compared to what I was used to...cold boot and restarts put me back on the desktop in less than 10 secs.

    Picked up the 512GB version for my dad, he will defo see the difference from his old mechanical drive. Was tempted myself but already got a 256GB and a 480GB so couldn't really justify it for myself.

    I'm using this in my new build and so far it's been flawless, a step-up from my aging M4.

    Wow.

    That's a good price for a decent SSD.

    These value drives will defo out perform my 2 years old SSD that I have. Maybe have to invest in one

    RAIN is a poor acronym for this (on Micron's part), as it means Redundant Array of Independent Nodes in most terminology. However, on the first page you have:

    Redundant Array of Independent Disks (RAIN)

    Which should be:

    Redundant Array of Independent NAND (RAIN)

    I just bought it for my Macbook Pro 13(2012) and it makes HUGE difference. I took 512Gb model as it is best performance and the price is like for some models with half the capacity. I hope this will push others to lower their prices too, and many people will be able to by themselves an SSD drive.

    Got this for my Sister's laptop to replace an old 120Gb SSD. Really happy with it so far actually. Let's hope it lasts!

    Does'nt seem that long ago that a 120/128GB SSD was this sort of price.
    A good buy subject to reliability.

    I need to get me one of these. I've been waiting for 512GBs to drop to ~£150

    What do we reckon in terms of SSD price drops? Will they continue at the pace they have historically or should I jump in when I see a good deal on this? Won't need it for ~2 months

    Re: Reviews - Crucial MX100 (512GB)

    I think they will go down in steps. You tend to see a big drop in price which will start as a cash back or special price on one drive then others will follow and then stabilise at that lower price. Of course you end to get a steady drift down as well, but not by a lot at a time.

    Personally, I would either buy when I need a new drive, or when a new price drop or special offer makes it especially attractive to me with full knowledge that drive will eventually be much cheaper.

    At some point I sure SSDs will get to be like RAM and they will be treated like commodities, where the price can go up as well as down over the short term. However just like everything else in this industry, there will always be a general downward trend as far as price is concerned. Thats just what happens with electronics.
