The Crucial MX100 looks like a real winner at 256GB. I just purchased one for $110 off Amazon.ca. The price to GB ratio is nice but that’s only half the story.
The performance is comparable to the Samsung 840 EVO but it costs $60 less. AnandTech have given it a thumbs up.
All in all, I have nothing negative to say about the MX100. With the performance and feature set, combined with pricing that basically doubles the amount of storage you get for your dollar, it’s an absolute no-brainer. Unless you are an enthusiast or professional with a heavy IO workload, the MX100 is currently the drive with the best bang for the buck in the market by far.
That’s high praise that shouldn’t be ignored.
