Micron quality - a higher level of reliability.
As a brand of Micron, one of the largest flash storage manufacturers in the world, the Crucial MX300 is backed by the same quality and innovation that has produced some of the world’s most advanced memory and storage technologies. With over a thousand hours of prerelease validation testing and hundreds of SSD qualification tests, the Crucial MX300 has been thoroughly tried, tested and proven. You’ll notice the difference.
Instantly improve system performance
The Crucial MX300 reaches read speeds up to 530 MB/s and write speeds up to 510 MB/s* on all file types so you can boot up almost instantly, reduce load times and accelerate demanding applications with ease. Plus, Dynamic Write Acceleration technology uses an adaptable pool of high-speed, single-level cell flash memory to generate blistering speeds throughout the drive’s long life.
Over 90x more energy efficient than a typical hard drive**
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 0.075 W of power, compared to a typical hard drive which uses 6.8 W.
Entrust your files to a drive that lasts
With an endurance rating of up to 220 TB total bytes written, the Crucial MX300 is engineered with Micron 3 D NAND to deliver years of fast performance. The 3 D NAND leverages larger NAND cells to improve performance and prolong endurance.
Protect your data with AES 256-bit hardware-based encryption, RAIN technology, Exclusive Data Defence technology and the durability inherent in SSD design.
Keep your system cool
In addition to lower active power usage, Adaptive Thermal Protection technology dynamically adjusts storage component activity. This helps keep your system cool and minimises the risk of damage caused by overheating.
Boost drive performance by up to 10x with Crucial Storage Executive***
This downloadable tool is easy to use and helps monitor and enhance the performance of your Crucial MX300 – update to the latest firmware and enable the Momentum Cache feature in Storage Executive to instantly improve burst performance.
Note: 1 GB equals 1 billion bytes. Actual useable capacity may vary.
*Based on the published specs of the 525 GB model. Speeds based on internal testing. Actual performance may vary.
**Active average power use comparison based on published specs of the 750 GB Crucial MX300 SSD and the 1 TB Western Digital Caviar Blue WD10EZEX internal hard drive, which, as of January 2016, is one of the industry’s top-selling internal hard drives. All other capacities of the Crucial MX300 SSD have comparable active average power consumption specs, with the exception of the 2050 GB version of the drive, which consumes 0.15 W.
***Validated by testing included in the 'Enhance Burst Performance on Micron and Crucial SSDs Using Momentum Cache' whitepaper.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Was my first time replacing HDD with SSD, with some reading and research, managed to do it without much problems.
Now the four year old laptop is seriously quick! Of course time will tell how well the drive performs.
If no updates here, means all is good :)
If anyone considering upgrading computer / laptop with SSD, go to Crucial UK website, find the free little software that will scan your computer and advise you which drive to buy. Then buy it from Amazon, you will save £££.
UPDATE... Four months on, laptop is working well. Battery lasts much longer with SSD.
The laptop is a recent (2017) MSI Apache 17”. It has space for one PCIe SSD and one standard SATA 3. I chose to go with a standard SATA because I’m lazy and didn’t want to mess about with moving the system disk.
Anyway, all good, and decent for a SSD (but not outstanding figures) in CrystalDiskMark. That is until I downloaded Crucial Storage Executive and enabled momentum cache.
The figures speak for themselves (see my screenshot of CrystalDiskMark).
I've also added a second image from Task Manager showing how momentum cache works. The G drive is a traditional HDD transferring 25GB of data to F, a 1TB SSD with momentum enabled (I'm actually installing the game Fallout 4 from G to F). You can see that the SSD only occasionally writes data (about once every 10s).
What are the downsides of doing this?
Momentum cache uses your PC memory as a read/write cache, so you need to have a decent amount of memory. My laptop has 16GB, so all good there. I suspect it will work less well for 4GB systems, or if you are using a power-hungry application (such as Adobe Premiere, which I use). It also increases the CPU overhead.
EDIT: I're realised Windows 10 Task Manager > Memory shows you the RAM cache (its marked as 'memory that has to be saved to disk before it can be used for something else' or words to that effect). I copied over the full install folder of Fallout 4 plus DLCs
(29.6GB) onto a Momemtum enabled drive and the cache varied between 1 and 1.5GB. So the 4GB is never reached; more like >2GB.
Crucial strongly recommend a battery backup if you use momentum cache (i.e. you can lose the cached data on a power fail), so other things equal you should only really enable it on a laptop.
The cache is written to the real SSD on power off, so system shutdown takes longer (by 5-10s, so significant).
But yeah, just look at those figures; well recommended for laptops with memory to spare; your system flies!
Edit: Another good thing about the Crucial I'm finding is that it uses devSleep much more often than other SSDs. Since writing this review (5 months), the up-time for my SSD (according to CrystalDiskInfo) is only 9 hours when the physical up-time has been office hours (8.5 hours a day, 5 days a week). The low up-time saves both power and wear and tear, with no noticeable affect on access time. DevSleep only seems to kick in on laptops (it does not seem to affect my desktop), but is certainly something that will extend your laptop battery life (especially if you have two drives) and the life of the SSDs themselves. Oh, I also suspect the up-time is coming out so low because of Momentum Cache (RAM caching means less access requests to the SSD and more devSleep down-time), so devSleep and Momentum cache probably work together).
Had a problem with a Crucial M4 until they finally fixed the firmware, this is the same issue (a long power cycle usually brings it back), but then it just randomly disappears again - completely unreliable. I have updated this MX300 525gb with the latest firmware, tried using different SATA ports and different SATA cables - either it hates my build of Windows or my motherboard, or I'm just unlucky as most reviews seem positive.
Loath to return as I got it at a great price on a lightning deal, but completely pointless if I can't rely on it staying available
Installed it into a brand new Dell 15 5567 laptop which had a pretty sluggish 1TB hard drive and makes a big difference.
Ordered the Sabrent USB 3.0 to SSD adapter with the hard drive and connected it, I installed the Acronis software that comes with the Crucial hard drive (via a download and supplied serial) and found it worked fine for me although some other people have had problems with it.
Going down in size from a 1Tb to 500Gb hard drive was now problem for the Acronis cloning software and was all done in about 1/2 Hr.
Drive cloned, opened up the laptop and removed the 1Tb drive and installed the Crucial.
Fired up straight away and was a lot quicker than the standard setup.
Would recommend you install the Crucial Storage Executive software from the Crucial website though as upon checking there was a firmware upgrade for the Hard drive and is easily installed via the Exectutive software. One thing to note though as the firmware upgrades the computer restarts and mine got stuck in a loop constantly restarting until I hit the F12 key to tell the systen to boot via the windows boot and not the crucial software update, then the system ran normally.
