Not that long ago we took a look at Crucial’s MX200 solid state drive, which is set to be their high-performance drive for 2015. They also sent us over their new BX100 solid state drive. This drive is their cost-effective solution that is aggressively priced and Crucial hopes it will get solid state drives in the hands of more people. How aggressively priced is it? Well the 1TB drive that we are taking a look at today is selling at my favorite online retailer for $374.99, which makes it only $0.37 per GB. The BX100 is powered by the Silicon Motion SM2246EN controller and features Micron 16nm synchronous MLC NAND. The 1TB version features sequential read and write speeds of 535 MB/s and 450 MB/s respectively. Let’s take a closer look…
The BX100 comes in Crucial’s typical retail packaging for solid state drives. On the front there is a picture of the drive and it lets us know that capacity, which is 1TB. This drive is also available in 120GB, 250GB, and 500GB models.
Flipping the box over it lets us know what all comes inside and where to get support etc.
Getting everything out all we have is the BX100 drive and a 7mm to 9.5mm spacer.
