There is really no reason to buy the more expensive MX300 over this drive. The only reason I can think of is if you actually need the extra 16GB of space you will get from the MX300 over this one. This drive can even trade blows with the Samsung 850 Pro, which is astonishing.

As a side note, the data throughput on any of the Samsung SSDs I am operating along with Patriot Blast SSD, per ATTO Benchmark v2.47, for large and small file sizes, are superior to the Crucial BX300. The Crucial BX300 SSD's are installed in a Supermicro 12G, CSE-M28SACB Mobile Rack attached to an Areca 1883ix-24 12G RAID Controller with 8GB cache, mounted to an ASUS X99-E-10G WS Motherboard driven by an i7 5960X CPU using Win 7 Ult 64.
Given the high failure rate, I will be returning all of the Crucial BX300 120GB SSDs and replacing them with Samsung SSDs.
Minus 2.0 for High Product Failure Rate
I'm not exaggerating when I say that it took more than 5 minutes to fully boot up, and several minutes to open applications like Excel or Outlook. Insanely frustrating. If I had a conference call with a client, I had to make sure every application I might need was open before the call started.
Replacing that HD with this SSD solved every problem I had with the laptop. The thing boots in less than a minute. Excel opens in 3 seconds. Outlook opens in 4 seconds. Web pages load faster. And, as a bonus, the formerly-annoying fans now barely run at all.
The replacement process itself was very simple, and took less than a half hour. Honestly, the hardest part was getting the back cover off the laptop. The SSD came with very clear instructions and software to clone my existing hard disk (if you're going to clone the disk, you'll need a USB-to-SATA cable). After cloning, all I had to do was open the laptop, take out the battery, take out the HD bracket, remove the HD from the bracket, replace it with the SSD, put the bracket and the battery back in, close it up and boot.
For an investment of about $100 (SSD + cable) and 30 minutes of my time, I feel like I have a brand new laptop. I'm thrilled. Thank you, Crucial!!
I should point out that I went from a 500GB drive to this 120GB unit. The cloning procedure automatically sized the primary and recovery partitions. Pretty darn seamless operation despite my temporary setback.
Oh, and kudos to Crucial for monitoring questions here and amazingly quick response to my query.
