I have four crucial and 2 of them are over 3 years old and wondering how long they will last - fingers crossed no errors yet.
They are very good and are used every day for data transfer and are becoming cheaper which is crucial these days.

Ben, Winchester Heavy media user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
I did some research on the interweb and found that,
for capacity and performance, this SSD drive is really good value for money.
Glad i purchased it.
Bad points:
Just make sure you remove/unplug your existing/old HDD from your system if you plan to replace it with your new SSD.
When you have re-installed 'Windows' on SSD, you can re-connect your old HDD and use it as extra storage.

Manufacturer's Description

The choice between speed and capacity is over. Choose both.
Traditionally, SSDs have offered powerful speeds and extra features, but at a high cost per gigabyte. Enter the Crucial MX100 SSD. Leveraging years of R&D and the latest NAND technology, the Crucial MX100 offers a low cost per GB, combined with unrelenting performance and one of the most complete feature sets available.

Micron quality – a higher level of reliability.

As a brand of Micron, one of the largest flash storage manufacturers in the world, the Crucial MX100 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 MX100 has been thoroughly tried, tested, and proven. Make the switch to the Crucial MX100 SSD and start outlasting and outperforming your hard drive.

Feature-packed capacity. Proven reliability. The Crucial MX100 provides plenty of cost-effective storage for your photos, music, videos, and documents – all while backing your data with a higher level of reliability than a hard drive or competing SSD.
Note: 1 GB = 1 billion bytes. Actual usable capacity may vary.

Run your system longer than ever before – using less power.
With Extreme Energy Efficiency technology, the Crucial MX100 is up to 89% more energy efficient than a typical hard drive.

Hard drive active average power use based on published specs of 1TB Western Digital Blue WD10JPVX internal hard drive. According to NPD data published February 2014, this was one of the most popular hard drives available and an accurate reflection of a common internal hard drive.

Attain consistently fast speeds without compromising the reliability of your data.

Our engineers created RAIN technology to protect your data at the component level, similar to how RAID is used with multiple hard drives. This enterprise-class technology increases the security and protection of your data to a level that’s rarely available in consumer-class SSDs.

Keep your memories, photos, and files safe.

When a photo or file gets corrupted, it often becomes unusable. Prevent this from happening in the first place with the Crucial MX100 SSD, which arms every storage component with four layers of Exclusive Data Defense to guard against corrupt files.

Push your drive to the limit and avoid overheating.

Adaptive Thermal Protection technology enables the Crucial MX100 to dynamically adjust storage component activity based on how you’re using the drive, allowing your system to stay cool and react to changes in use.

Do more – faster.

Get true 550 MB/s sequential reads on both compressible and incompressible data – and leave your old 177 MB/s hard drive in the dust.

Performance level based on comparative AS SSD benchmark ratings of 512GB Crucial MX100 SSD and 1TB Western Digital Blue 7200 RPM hard drive (WD10EZEX-00U). Actual performance levels may vary based on benchmark used and individual system configuration.

Test setup: Intel DZ87KLT-75K motherboard, Intel i7-4770K 3.50GHz processor, BIOS Rev. 0446, and Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit operating system using AS SSD test suite.
