From the manufacturer
Crucial MX300 Solid State Drive
Instant performance that lasts.
Increase the speed, durability and efficiency of your system for years to come with the Crucial MX300 SSD. Boot up in seconds and fly through the most demanding applications with an SSD that fuses the latest 3 D NAND flash technology with the proven success of previous MX-series SSDs. Your storage drive isn’t just a container, it’s the engine that loads and saves everything you do and use. Get more out of your computer by boosting nearly every aspect of performance.
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 Defense 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

It goes right into your m.2 port. It has a quality feel to it, nothing shaky or too sturdy. Fits perfect and safe.
Enabling it as a system drive took me like 5 seconds.
My computer switches on in 10seconds and I open chrome with 30 tabs loaded from memory 2 seconds later.
Want something more? You can pay over 200quid for a new generation Samsung drive.
This one does the SSD job perfectly and is cheap as chips for the storage.
I would recommend it to any user, even in a professional environment. No need to overpay.
I've had a crucial M550 drive as my main OS drive for almost exactly 2 years now, and bought this primarily to put my music collection on. I ran some benchmarks with this 44% full (no point benchmarking a new, empty drive against a 2 year old one lol). Over all i found them comperable. This can write a bit faster than the old one, but the old one had higher peak read speeds, so I'd say that it's a progression, but within 10% of each other. All in all from a performance perspective, I'd say likely no point upgrading from your existing SSD for speed, but it's a great way to get a lot of SSD storage at a low price, and the speed is plenty fast for all but enthusiasts.
As for the device, it came boxed and sealed same day from prime, shielded and ready to go. It isn't formatted yet however, so you'll have to format the drive prior to using - just connect it to your computer and open "disk management" to create a partition table and add partitions.
All in all highly recommended! Sure it's not much faster than they were 2 years ago, but it's more than fast enough for 99% of all uses, and it's at a price point where a 750GB SSD was £105 in the black friday sale!
Although this drive comes with a free licence for Acronis True Image 2015, I cloned it using Macrium Reflect, as I'm used to it. DO NOT select "Verify" data during the cloning process unless you want to take quadruple the time to do the clone! It was looking at 70 hours to clone with a "Verify", and 2.5 hours to clone without. Do select "SSD TRIM" in the options, though.
Once this was cloned, I physically installed the SDD and then installed the "Crucial Storage Executive", which is the 'Control Panel' for the Disk Drive. One of the functions in the Storage Executive is a setting called Momentum Cache, which gives a burst of additional memory to the SSD, dramatically increasing Read & Write speeds. Have a look at the attached benchmark images. One is the Crucial SSD performing without Momentum Cache enabled, while the other one is with Momentum Cache enabled. The results are amazing. If you compare these results to my previous HDD, there is a one hundred fold increase in performance!
The only downside I can mention is that there seems to be a heavy drain on the battery life with the Momentum Cache enabled. Even though the Momentum Cache dramatically improves Read/Writes (see pictures), I'm not sure you'll really feel that in day to day computing applications. So, you might not want to have it enabled if you see that it's draining your battery significantly faster than usual. That's the only reason I knock off a star.Read more ›
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 £££.
