Crucial MX300 datasheet
Increase the speed, durability, and efficiency of your system for years to come with the Crucial MX300 SSD. Boot up in seconds and fly through the most demanding applications with an SSD that fuses the latest 3D NAND flash technology with the proven success of previous MX-series SSDs. Your storage drive isn't just a container, it's the engine that loads and saves everything you do and use. Get more out of your computer by boosting nearly every aspect of performance.
Instantly improve system performance
The Crucial MX300 reaches read speeds up to 530 MB/s and write speeds up to 510 MB/s1 on all file types so you can boot up almost instantly, reduce load times, and accelerate demanding applications with ease. Plus, our Dynamic Write Acceleration technology uses an adaptable pool of high-speed, single-level cell flash memory to generate blistering speeds throughout the drive's long life.
Over 90x more energy efficient than a typical hard drive2
Extreme Energy Efficiency technology within the Crucial MX300 reduces the amount of active power usage that's consumed by the drive. The Crucial MX300 extends your laptop's battery life by using only 0.075W of power, compared to a typical hard drive which uses 6.8W.
Entrust your files to a drive that lasts
With an endurance rating of up to 400TB total bytes written, the Crucial MX300 is engineered with Micron 3D NAND to deliver years of fast performance. The 3D NAND leverages larger NAND cells to improve performance and prolong endurance.
Keep your system cool
In addition to lower active power usage, Adaptive Thermal Protection technology dynamically adjusts storage component activity. This helps keep your system cool and minimizes the risk of damage caused by overheating.

Have only used this drive for 3-4 months, for less than 100 hours, and the drive failed. Ratings on other sites reflect this issue. This was paired with a very high quality motherboard, case and many case fans and surge / battery backup, so heat etc. was not a factor. Have used Crucial products, since the early 90s, and may not purchase their products again.
After adding more DRAM to my 2012 desktop tower, I replaced the old 7200 rpm 1TB HDD drive with the Crucial 1TB SSD. The Acronis cloning software made it very easy. This SSD is incredibly fast upon start up, installing software, opening apps, scanning files, etc. The improvement in system performance is truly amazing!
The drive has improved my 2011 Imac tremendously, but getting it was hard. Took a few days longer than I thought (happens) then the day it arrived, received an email from Crucial saying they had probably sent the wrong drive. Better than when I took it to my installer, I guess. Finally got that worked out so they would send out the right drive, which they promised to send 2 day shipping at no cost. I made plans to have it installed. On the day it was supposed to arrive, I get an email that it had shipped--turns out that "free" two day shipping was meaningless. On top of that, I sent an email to Crucial about their customer service and have not even received an acknowledgement, much less any kind of response. I chatted with several people who apologized, but still almost a week later, no response from Crucial about their rather shabby customer service. I will buy my drives and memory elsewhere next time.
Purchased this to replace the 480GB SSD that was running low on space. Even with having the 480GB SSD installed for only 2 years the speed difference between the 480GB and 1TB SSD is noticeable. The new 1TB SSD knocked 1 second off the W10 boot up time (15 seconds). This new SSD will keep my 5 year old netbook in the game for a few more years.
Replaced the last mechanical drive in my rig with this one. What a difference!
I won't know how reliable it is, until I have used it for a long time.
This is a great SSD for the money. I have a great desktop computer, but this made it better than great.
I really like the solid state drives and these prices appear to be the most competitive I've seen ... white paper looks really good but I'd like to know what the failure rate is on the 1TB drives ...
