Best value SSD I could find!

Great bang for the buck, whilst not the fastest it is noticeably faster than the three year old Intel SSD that this replaced. I benchmarked it at Seq 405/302 so not as good as the manufacturer says, but not bad at all.


value for money

tbh the specs sheet for this does speak for itself, or at least it does when compared to the price.

plugged into a 990fx gen1 mobo and put on a nice fresh 8.1 install, whole process took an hour tops including cable managent and everything just worked first time.

boot times are now dedicated entirely by the bios screen timeout and the whole system just feels snappier, definately a worthy upgrade. i'll maybe have to get another at some point and get all of my steam library a share of this magic.


Excellent bang for buck

Paired this with another from the MX100 family for redundancy and by god these SSD's are fantastic. It's not worth forking out more for diminishing returns in terms of performance and I've certainly not been disappointed with the MX100s. Out of the box this and it's brother took 15 minutes to get working, formatted and providing silky performance. Specs are met in terms of R/W speeds and I'm not one bit dissatisfied with these.

Overclockers as ever provided the best price and honestly? You'd be bonkers not to nab one of these- for a penny shy of
