Hi,
No problem Crucial's have fast reads which is usually what counts
Their writes are a tad lower
Samsung's at least the evo line are mostly balanced read and writes
Which wouldn't be a bad thing except the read is slower or at least mine are on the 850 evo verses mx100.
Funny my mx's cost more than my evo's so you must have gotten a good deal somewhere

After using Samsung 850 EVO's and wanting to try something different, I managed to pick up a Crucial MX300 525gb for 85 which was a bargain. Have to say I've been really impressed with it.

I've used Crucial for their RAM sticks many times and they've never let me down. And now I'm impressed with their SSD's too. Performance wise there isn't a huge difference between that and my 850 EVO's.

85!!! Where did you get it? That was the price of the 275GB one on Amazon when I looked. That is a good deal. I paid 135 for the 525GB. (I kidded myself it was only just over 100 :-)) The Samsung Evo 850 500GB was 149. Which is quite a bit further over 100 :-)

They were slightly more expensive at ebuyer. Wouldn't normally get a hard drive from Amazon as they drop them through the letterbox! But reckoned an SSD would be ok with that.

I got it from Amazon UK. They had a 1 day flash sale a few months ago. I wish I'd picked up more than one at the time. But I wanted to see how it performed first. I'm impressed with it.

That's good to hear - wish I'd seen the flash sale!
