Crucial® MX100

Crucial, a leading global brand of memory and storage upgrades, announced today the new Crucial® MX100 solid state drive (SSD). Available in 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB capacities with respective MSRPs of $79.99, $109.99, and $224.99, the new Crucial MX100 offers powerful speeds and advanced features at a low cost per gigabyte.  

The Crucial MX100 256GB and 512GB drives utilize Micron’s new 16 nanometer (nm) 128gb NAND, in addition to a SATA 6Gb/s controller and custom firmware, to deliver up to 90,000 input/output operations per second (IOPS). With true 550/500 MB/s sequential read/write speeds on both compressible and incompressible data,* the Crucial MX100 allows users to boot up almost instantly, load programs in seconds, and accelerate demanding applications. Furthermore, at up to 89 percent more efficient than a hard drive, the new MX100 SSD allows users to run systems longer, using less power.**  

The Crucial MX100 SSD also offers one of the most comprehensive feature sets available: 

  • Best-in-class hardware encryption keeps personal and sensitive information safe in the event of device theft or loss. 
  • Native Write Acceleration spreads the drive’s workload across several elements to save and transfer files in seconds rather than minutes. 
  • Redundant Array of Independent NAND technology increases security and protection of data to a level that’s rarely found in consumer-class SSDs.
  • Exclusive Data Defense guards against corrupt files. 
  • Adaptive Thermal Protection adjusts storage component activity based on how the drive is used to keep the system cool. 
  • Power Loss Protection preserves data even if the power goes out.  

Additionally, each Crucial MX100 SSD comes with Acronis® True Image™ HD data migration software that moves all files, operating systems, settings, and programs from an existing hard drive to a newly installed SSD. This patented disk-imaging technology powered by Acronis' AnyData Engine allows users to quickly, easily, and accurately utilize their new SSD as their system drive.   

“The Crucial MX100 represents a significant step forward for the mainstream SSD market, delivering outstanding performance and robust features at an excellent price,” said Jon Weech, senior worldwide product manager, Crucial. “This product truly broadens the storage consideration set and enables more users than ever to make the jump from traditional spinning hard drives to a solid state drive.”
