Crucial BX200 Solid State Drive
Enjoy your computer again.
Ever start your computer, then have to find something to do while it wakes up? Your computer should be ready when you are — not the other way around. Make long wait times a thing of the past by loading apps in seconds, booting up almost instantly, and accelerating nearly everything on your computer. Get more done and have more fun with the Crucial BX200 SSD.
Micron quality – a higher level of reliability.
As a brand of Micron, one of the largest flash storage manufacturers in the world, the Crucial BX200 is backed by the same quality and innovation that has produced some of the world's most advanced memory and storage technologies. With over a thousand hours of prerelease validation testing and hundreds of SSD qualification tests, the Crucial BX200 has been thoroughly tried, tested, and proven. You'll notice the difference.
Up to 13x faster than a typical hard drive*
Accessing your data on the Crucial BX200 is like flipping a light switch — it's almost instant. The Crucial BX200 delivers true 540 MB/s sequential reads on both compressible and incompressible data, which allows you to access files and apps almost as soon as you click on them. Stop pulling your hair out waiting for your computer to catch up to you. Life moves fast — your computer should too.
Up to 40x more energy efficient than a typical hard drive**
Since SSDs access data on cutting-edge flash memory chips rather than on outdated spinning platters, they consume significantly less power than hard drives. Enjoy the ability to do more with longer battery life and experience a cooler, quieter system. Increase your laptop's portability, worry less about finding an outlet, and boost your productivity.
More durable than a typical hard drive
Since SSDs don't use moving parts that wear out over time, your photos, music, videos, and everything on the drive is less susceptible to a crash. Dropping a laptop with a hard drive may damage the small mechanical parts it uses to read and write data, and could cause the hard drive to fail. SSDs can sustain more physical trauma since they don't rely on these mechanical parts.
Better value than a typical SSD
The Crucial BX200 leverages proven flash memory technology that's been thoroughly vetted and engineered to extensive Micron quality standards. Upgrading to an SSD is one of the best ways to improve your system's performance, and now the price per gigabyte makes it a great time to ditch your hard drive. Start getting more out of your storage.
* Performance level based on comparative benchmark scores of the Crucial BX200 SSD and the Western Digital Caviar Blue WD10EZEX internal hard drive. Actual performance level may vary based on benchmark used and individual system configuration. Test setup: 256GB Crucial m4 SSD as the primary storage drive, paired with a 960GB Crucial BX200 SSD and a 1TB Western Digital Caviar Blue internal hard drive as secondary drives (each secondary drive tested separately). All tests conducted on an Asus Maximus VII Gene motherboard, Intel i7-4790K 4.0GHz processor, SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 3870 video card, BIOS Rev. 2801, and Windows 7 Pro 64-bit operating system using PCMark Vantage HDD test suite. Benchmark testing conducted September 2015.

The computer boots in less than thirty seconds, applications load nearly instantly, even web browsing and video streaming go more smoothly.
I wouldn't recommend putting this in an expensive computer, unless you have an expensive computer that you only use for cheap computer tasks like occasionally editing still photos or short videos, working on Microsoft Office docs, etc. If you have an expensive computer and want to use it for expensive computer things like moving a 50gb 4k video from another drive to this drive, you will suffer. Like some others in this price range, it has extremely slow sustained write speeds once file size exceeds something like 6 gb, or you have more data than that to write all at once. (Find actual facts and plenty of complaints on review websites that focus more on fairly abstract benchmarks than real world scenarios.) But other than perhaps when I migrated the system from an HDD to this drive, it has never been an issue.
For normal stuff--starting up your machine, opening programs, copying a folder from one partition to another--this drive is as good as anything. If you need more... don't buy a Hyundai and expect it to act like a Porsche.
(Edit: I just read a Tom's Hardware review of the Samsung 750 EVO that included this drive in a multi-SSD comparo, and the BX200 was the slowest and worst at nearly every benchmark. Still works great! However, as the price fluctuates upwards toward $125 and beyond, my goodwill toward the brand Crucial becomes less compelling, because we're in the price range of some speedier drives at this point.)

Crystal Disk Mark, AS SSD Benchmark, Ultimas Versiones
Crucial is making a Great Progress on New SSD Models. I have nothing negative but positive to say, it's a Great Product, Price, Quality and Performance Wise. Maybe for some people will be nice to include the 3.5inch to 2.5inch adapter, but most Cases already have it.
On my Tests and Benches, Read/Write and 4K remains mostly the same good performance from 2GB to 100MB Data Sample on Crystal Disk Mark. On AS SSD Benchmark (The Official Competition Bench of HWBOT) varies a bit on 4K as it uses a different Thread Count wich is 4K64 rather than the 4K32 of Crystal Disk Mark. As you may already know Crucial is a Brand of Micron and uses TLC (Triple Cell) NandFlash and it uses a Silicon Motion [...]
Kind Regards to All, Sergio.
If you want to add a little expansion and boost load times along with start up times then this is the ssd for you.
