Crucial BX300 Solid State Drive Overview
The Crucial BX300 is your typical 2.5-inch solid state drive. It has a metal chassis and looks much like Crucial’s MX300 drive we took a look at about a year ago. The only read difference is that there is a “BX” sticker on the top rather than a “MX” sticker.
Flipping over to the back we have another sticker that has the model number, firmware version that shipped on the drive, as well as capacity. Also on the bottom are four mounting holes.
Besides the four mounting holes on the bottom of the drive you’ll also find two more holes on each side of the drive. This drive is your typical 7mm drive, but there is an included adapter for 9.5mm if you need that.
Finally on the end of the drive we have our normal SATA power and data connections.
Inside of the drive you are going to find a PCB that houses the Silicon Motion SM2258 controller, four Micron MLC NAND chips, and DDR3 cache chip. For those wondering the Silicon Motion SM2258 is a 4-channel controller with native support for 3D NAND.
