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.

This greatly improved the computer’s speed, start up is quicker, and all the apps are much quicker, including safari, photoshop opens in an instant and you can add photo in an instant and start work on that photo in an instant, goodbye pinwheel. I would actively recommend the upgrade from HDD to this SSD to anyone on any OS. Uses less energy, less heat, less whirring of the fan.
My drive came with data migration software by Acronis, unfortunately this does not work with Mac Os, so I used a 30 day free trial to carbon copy cloner. Simply attach the new drive via a external HDD enclosure (multiple available on amazon), format the new drive, open ccc, select source as the old drive, and destination as the new drive, hit clone and it will clone everything (OS, software, movies, pictures etc). Once complete you can restart your computer and hold down alt or option and select your new drive as the boot drive to test it’s worked.
You can then swap out the drives following an online guide, I did not disconnect the battery. You need a small phillips and a Torx T6 screw driver, very easy takes 5 minutes, I would recommend wearing a static line or keep a finger touching the metal case of the mac to avoid damage by static.
Boot holding alt or option and select your new drive to boot from, once booted go into system preferences - startup disk - click the new hard drive and hit restart. Done.
You are then left with a bootable back up using your old drive in the HDD enclosure. So glad for cloning as I thought I would have to reinstall all my software, which is a lot.
Crucial Storage Management tool does not currently work with mac, but the drive is fully trim compatible.
Then, after asking her what the specs were like, she shrugged and shown me the order; it was a Lenovo IdeasPad 510-15ISK with the following specs:
i5-6200U CPU... Good. Far better than the i3 it was replacing.
8Gb DDR4 RAM... Yeah, that'll do for what she uses it for.
GTX940MX... Dedicated graphics? Blimey.
15.4" Full HD IPS screen... Wow. This is going to be great!
1Tb 5400rpm hard drive... NOOOOOOOO!
Once she'd got the laptop and handed it to me, my fears about the last line on the specs listed above come true. Her new, shiny, laptop was also performing somewhat like the scabby sloth of a VAIO that it was replacing, thanks to its crappy 5400RPM hard drive, which was bottle-necking the whole system and holding it back. Starting up took nearly 2 minutes and everything ran incredibly slowly; even slower than the VAIO.
There was clearly only one thing to do; replace that hard drive with an SSD - so I bought a 275Gb Crucial MX300 and it arrived the next day, thanks again to Prime.
Swapping it out couldn't have been any easier; it was a case of undoing one screw, pulling out the hard drive (while cursing at it), popping the new Crucial SSD in, and installing Windows. It all went very quickly and without any problems and the moment the PC done its first reboot I felt a wave of relief. It was now booting up in under ten seconds and performing like a new laptop should.Read more ›
Crucial/Micron also offer 2 extra pieces of software: Storage Executive, which monitors the disk (smart parameters) and provides Momentum caching, which gives a big boost to performance (you end up benchmarking your RAM....). I run a dual Windows10/Linux system, and initially had problems with my new disk - but it turns out that Windows fastboot and hibernate facilities, leave the drive in an unsafe state! (ie it hasn't cleared down all the caches before shutdown) - nothing at ll to do with Storage Executive, which behaves properly on closing down.
The second piece of software: a copy of Acronis Image was less successful. I had some problems with it, but Micron/Crucial support came back to me to help out, very quickly. A last comment: such a large drive is of mixed benefit on an old system which uses MBR disks (on BIOS motherboards) as opposed to the newer GPT disks on UEFI motherboards, because of the limits of 4 partitions on a drive with MBR (unless you create extended partitions). A dual-boot system soon uses up the 4 partitions, leaving no partition for the large filespace.Read more ›
