For several years now, Crucial has been developing consistent and cost effective mainstream SSDs. Just like all their products, the MX100 SSD has been built with three aspects in mind: value, reliability and better performance.
The MX100 SSDs are available in a 7mm 2.5” form factor, and come in 512GB, 256GB and 128GB capacities. Just like many SSDs, the MX100 features ECC, SMART and TRIM Support. Furthermore, it comes with 3 unique features, including:
- Hardware Encryption – The MX100 features the most recent AES 256-bit hardware encryption support. It’s also the only drive presently on the market that complies with TCG Opal 2.0 encryption, IEEE-1667 and Microsoft® eDrive® standards.
- Adaptive Thermal Protection – This is a technology that enables the MX100 to dynamically regulate storage component activity to keep it cool at all times.
- Power Loss Protection – This is a standard feature in every Crucial SSD, which means that the MX100 is not an exception. It features a row of capacitors that enable the drive just enough power to safely transmit in buffer data to the NAND in the event of a power failure.
Good news to consumers is that the MX100 SSD is available at very reasonable prices. Crucial’s aim while setting their prices was to maintain a competitive edge in the saturated market.
