Conclusion

The Crucial MX200 1TB drive impressed me. While it was a little bit slower than the 250GB model in some areas, although not by much, the overall scores were still great; it is one of the best scoring drives we have in our Anvil’s Storage Utilities benchmark. The drive had a consistent line of results no matter the load level, both before and after the conditioning of the drive.

As we’ve seen with the other drives, the optics don’t change much in the house of Crucial. The silver casing has a sticker on each side, where the top one displays the series background and Crucial log and the bottom one has all the relevant information such as serial numbers, revisions, and certifications.

The price of this drive is awesome and it gets better with the included Acronis cloning software. While it isn’t everyone that needs this, it’s a great tool to have at your disposal when switching from an old OS drive to a new one. It will be a tough match for anyone to deliver as much performance at this price point; you can’t really go wrong with this drive.

Pros
