This drive is built with 3D NAND technology that accelerates the drive's performance with up to 530 MB/s reads and 510 MB/s writes. In addition to performance, this technology enhances the life span of the drive. Crucial has built this drive to be 7mm high and includes a 9.5mm adapter so it can fit in taller bays. The MX300 is compatible with systems that feature a SATA interface and a bay supporting 2.5" form factors.

Plus, Dynamic Write Acceleration technology uses an adaptable pool of high-speed, single-level cell flash memory to generate fast speeds throughout the drive's long life.
90x More Energy Efficient than a Typical Hard Drive
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 that uses 6.8W.
With an endurance rating of up to 220TB total bytes written, the Crucial MX300 is engineered with Micron 3D NAND to deliver years of fast performance. 3D NAND technology leverages large NAND cells to improve performance and prolong endurance.

    Crucial MX300 reviews

    525GB MX300 SATA III 2.5" Internal SSD is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 73.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! SUPER Fast, affordable, and good size disk. If you have any doubts about what a difference an SSD will make over a mechanical drive, then prepare to be amazed! Transform your old sluggish computer into a serious performer. Did you ever notice that your hard-drive light on your computer is almost always ON? This means the system is reading or writing to that sluggish mechanical drive almost constantly, and the OS needs this information to execute your tasks. A Solid State Drive, such as this one, has at least 10X the speed. There are no moving parts inside. It's solid state flash memory. No more waiting on the disk! Eliminate the bottleneck and upgrade your drive to an SSD such as this one today!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Value Upgrade The drive was as expected. The free Acronis software for cloning that is offered with the drive was useless as many others have found. I used the free Macrium Reflect software without a problem to clone. Installing the recommended Crucial Storage Executive is important as it will update to the latest firmware without booting from an external source. In my case v2 to v4. Enabling the Momentum Cache can give you extra performance especially if you have extra RAM. All in all it is a good value to update a notebook with a 5400RPM drive for quicker boot times and a bit snappier performance overall with a bit longer battery run time as icing on the cake.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeding Expectations. One year ago I upgraded my laptop with a SSD drive, and the results were stunning. This year I decided to do the same with my desktop. The Crucial's memory and price factors certainly colored my decision. I have a Gateway small form factor desktop, and the removal of the old drive was a bit tricky, but I was able to accomplish the task. Data transfer was a snap and now I have a virtually brand new computer! Boot times are lightning fast. For price and storage I would highly recommend! Delivery was on time, a real plus during the Christmas season. If you are considering buying the Crucial drive, do yourself a favor and get it!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from beware cloning software The drive seems excellent. The accompanying acronis cloning software caused my system to freeze, after recovering, the system was unstable, two reboots corrected that. Finally used Easis free cloning software, it did a good job.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crucial makes solid drives This is the best drive you'll find for the money. It's not the fastest SSD on the market, but chances are you will never know the difference. This is not my first Crucial SSD purchase, and it will not be my last.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Failed after 3 months Be sure to have a clone available and back up constantly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product, great price!! Very pleased with the purchase of my 525GB SSD replacement drive for my Dell Inspirion 15 Laptop. Very helpful customer service in helping me to choose the right product, and great technical support when it came to replace the damaged old HD, and put in the new.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent bang for the buck Quick shipping and quick install with provided software. Replaced stock 5400 RPM drive in newer dell laptop. Provided spacer made for a perfect fit. The difference in read/write speed and boot time is unbelievable. Plus, the SSD is lighter than the mechanical (hey, every ounce helps). I can't speak to the longevity of the drive yet but I couldn't pass it up at their low price.
