Crucial MX100 512GB SSD - £152.32 Delivered @ CCL Online

Found 4th Jun 2014
Crucial seem to have really priced these new MX100 SSDs very competitively as deals keep getting better and better.

This is a couple of pounds cheaper than the deal from Dabs currently at 750+ heat.

Looks like price going down a few GBP every day, might be worth to wait a month.

WOW. SSD's are certainly coming down in price fast! It's almost viable now to get a 512GB SSD for a reasonable price.

Never had issues with CCL so tempted to order for my laptop, but I don't (really) need it!

It's been a long time since someone posted a deal for an SSD!

So tempted to pull the trigger but I can see these hitting £130 quite soon so will wait

Oh not much but 1.5% Quidco as well...

But you do! You know you do! Go on, pull the trigger! You know you want to! (_;)

In all seriousness it will make a world of difference to a laptop!

doubt these will hit that, they're brand new drives. low prices at the moment so people buy them to establish the name... they'll stick around the £160 mark after that

But... I already have an SSD! 128GB, SATA II, maxing the capabilities of my SATA II laptop...
But 512GB at this price means I could load it up with far more than I do at the moment, movies, music...

But this is meant to be my work laptop... It's distracting enough getting internet access!

dont need one, but bought one anyway.

shame on you for showing me this too good deal to miss op! (Y)

Look's as though I'm finally going to cave in and buy one of these Solid-State drives, been using 2 mechanical 500gb drives for a few years now and its almost viable to outright replace them with 2 of these...

True they are new, but prices are getting pushed further and further down recently. Plus they are a replacement for the M500 series which is now classed in a lower bracket from the M550 series. Crucial don't need to establish their name any further.

Based on performance figures in comparison to the Samsung Evo drives, these ones are actually faster so I can see the evo drives dropping in price forcing these ones down further.

Could not resist great for my alienware m17

This or samsung 840 evo ssd?

Is this sata 3

theyre not much faster than normal sata hdd drives

I'm a bit dim about these things........what would I need to clone the data to this SSD from my laptop's existing Hard Drive?

I don't mean establishing their name, its establishing the drive, especially since the troubles they had with the M4. Samsung did the same with the EVO drives when they first came out,.

Im tempted to get one for my laptop.

Firstly how would i know if it would accept a ssc? Its approx 1.5yr old samsung

Also would it have to be a complete reinstall?

If you know the model you can go straight to the crucial website and it will inform you if its compatible or not

Yup, lets give that cheaper memory, less features and (overall) slower drive all the votes!

Once you get to ~500GB sized SSD's there's literally ZERO massive roadblocks in the way of performance. At that point the EVO looses all advantages.
If you are buying a roughly 128 or 256GB ssd, get the EVO, the smaller crucial/other SSD's have MUCH worse write speed. If you are at 512GB or above there's zero reason you should be paying ~12% more for less life expectancy, features and (in many cases) speed.

good news it will fit.

However I will loose all my software, I have a windows 7 key, could i download and install a copy and use the key code on the back of the laptop?

Get something like EaseUs and a USB to Sata cable, and clone the drive. Won't lose a thing.

What troubles? The M4 is one of the most reliable SSD's ever made.

There's not a lot in it in terms of performance, but having mlc instead of tlc is great at this price. The life expectancy is probably less though because of the use of 16nm nand.

where is your evidence to show this? pretty sure the Evo out speeds (not by much) the MX100 and the Samsung controller is know to be the most reliable, you seem a little angry over my small comments, liek i said

"IMHO"

As above, get something like this (REALLY quick google, that one looks fine but maybe check reviews etc to be sure). You'll be able to use your old laptop hard drive as a small external.

Even better for about another fiver get a 2.5" USB 3 enclosure then you can keep your old laptop hard drive as a portable/plugable drive once you've cloned and put the SSD in.

Otherwise though, yup, you can happily download windows 7 online (there's plenty of legit sources, don't torrent it) and use the code on your laptop.

Apologies then if I sound a little angry (wasn't intended, not angry) but there's a certain portion of folks seem to assume the EVO is the best thing ever and no other drive is worthy. Any other SSD review seems to get the "or the EVO is only X amount more" type comment. Opinion is fine, not saying otherwise but it's worth having an opinion that's well informed rather than blindly following a brand (not saying YOU specifically do).

It's worth reading a review before stating the EVO is clearly better.

I own a Samsung 830 in my laptop 256GB and its been nothing but a pleasure to use. transformed my computing life, esp photo editing RAW, the speed is great, i am looking ot upgrade to a 512 or even a 1TB SSD and my research has all led me to believe the 840 is my best bet. but by no means am i saying other brands are not as good or better even.

That's a pretty poor review to judge the MX100 vs EVO on.

Don't get me wrong at all Wasn't meaning to sound aggressive(/whatever) in the slightest. The EVO is probably still a bare nose ahead on speed for average consumer use, the crucial has rather a lot of features you'd find essential the first time the EVO didn't cover you for them (data-loss due to power failure protection and drive encryption being 2).

Just advising not to be too blinkered towards one brand of SSD's, the first time you use one, the difference it makes can be quite staggering so is rather likely to give you huge respect for a particular brand but I can assure you they all do much the same

nublets2k

That's a pretty poor review.



How'd you mean? Yes, it's not showing the MX100 as being the best drive ever either, it's fairly balanced though and tends to sit on metrics and features. Storage review tend to be pretty straight up and "dull" as a result. Personally I'd rather have that than a reviewers opinion and bias.

I'm not even beginning to try and say the MX100 is clearly better, but it's not ~£20 worse either.

They're comparing results from different drive sizes, which isn't particularly helpful when comparing the Evo and the MX100.

I'm assuming it's due to the use of 128gb dies, but the difference is pretty surprising.
