Crucial MX300 – high-capacity, high-performance SSDs

By

Crucial's new MX300 SSD family is based on Micron 3D TLC NAND technology.

Crucial MX300 SSDs come in four capacities: 275GB, 525GB, 750GB and 1TB.

They are designed for high performance (up to 530 MBps read and up to 510 MBps write), low power consumption (just 0.075W), high endurance (up to 220TB total bytes written) and increased reliability (using RAIN technology to store data in multiple locations on the drive).

This is achieved in part through the use of parent company Micron's 3D TLC NAND flash technology.

Other features of the MX300 family include AES 256-bit hardware-based encryption, 'Data Defence' capability to prevent file corruption, adaptive thermal protection to help keep systems cool, and Acronis True Image HD data migration software.

The MX300 also works with the Windows-only Crucial Storage Executive software for enabling the "momentum cache" feature that can increase burst performance by up to 10 times, updating the drive's firmware, resetting the encryption password, and monitoring usage and health.

"Solid state drives are the computing powerhouses behind loading and saving virtually everything we do on our computers. The MX300 is designed to put power back into the hands of users so they can get more out of their system for years to come," said Micron consumer products group marketing manager APAC Mathew Luu.

The MX300 will also be available in the M.2 2280 form factor in all capacities in late August.
