A look at the Crucial MX200
Crucial is a well known player in the solid state drive market and it’s no wonder that the company came to CES 2015 in Las Vegas with a couple of new consumer SSDs, the MX200 and the BX100 series.
The new MX200 series will be available in 250GB, 500GB and 1TB capacities and is pretty much identical to the previously unveiled Micron M600 SSD. It will also have the same Dynamic Write Acceleration ffeature which uses SLC caching to improve performance and offer sequential read and write performance of up to 555MB/s and 500MB/s. The 4K random read and write performance is set at up to 100,000 and 87,000 IOPS while endurance write ratings will be different depending on the capacity and range from 80TB on the 250GB up to 320TB on the 1TB, making it one of the best endurance rating consumer SSDs on the market.
Features 250GB Crucial SSD MX200
Crucial has recently introducing the MX200 SSD at CES2015 and its one of the best in terms of SSD performance.
Its, faster and more durable than previous models The Crucial MX200 deliver a sequential reads of 555MB / s in both compressed and uncompressed readings.
This means you can transfers and saves files in seconds. SSDs typically work with a fixed cache, which allows you to write data to a fixed speed, however with Dynamic Write Acceleration technology it solves this problem by using an adaptive pool level of flash cells for consistent performance.
In terms of security the drive features Encryption and protection at the highest level keep all your personal files safe from hackers and thieves with AES-256bit encryption, the same used in banks and hospitals.
The MX200 goes far beyond the industry regulations encryption.
