Crucial and its parent company Micron have been in the SSD market from just about when it started. As many of you know Micron makes much of the NAND we see in many different devices and Crucial is Micron’s consumer brand making solid state drives and other storage devices. Last year we took a look at Crucial’s MX100 drive and we were really impressed with not only its performance, but its aggressive pricing as well. Just announced at CES Crucial is back with the MX200 which Crucial says “pushes things even further” and features their new Dynamic Write Acceleration technology. Will this be the SSD to get in 2015? Read on as we find out…
Special thanks to Crucial for providing us with the MX200 500GB & 1TB Solid State Drives to review!
We are reviewing the 500 GB and 1 TB versions of the MX200. Their packaging is pretty much the same except for the sticker on the front that lets us know the size of the drive.
The back of each box lets you know what all is inside and gives you information on where to get support.
Getting everything out of the box you have the MX200 solid state drive, a 7mm to 9.5mm spacer, and a certificate that has a code for Acronis True Image HD.
