Crucial MX100 SSD: Gold and Value For Money Award

"The Crucial MX100 is so fast, so cheap and so big that in one fell swoop Crucial has rendered almost every other SSD redundant. Uncompromising and outstanding it easily wins our OC3D Gold Award and, for that barely believable price tag, our Value For Money Award too." Full review

Crucial MX100 SSD: Editor’s Choice Award

"Oh wow! The Crucial MX100 is a truly awesome SSD. It is not only fast, but also extremely affordable, making it the cheapest high-end drive on the market. When I first heard about the MX100, I expected it to be a crippled drive, designed to meet the lowest price points possible, but Crucial didn't cheap out. The SSD controller is the same as on the Crucial M550, paired with a full set of 16 flash chips for maximum bandwidth." Full review

Crucial MX100 SSD: Value Recommendation Award

"The 256GB is the sweet spot for many models; the Crucial MX100 is one of the cheapest we have seen so far, being available for about 90 Euros. This is excellent since we can use the rest of the money for investing in another system component when buying a new PC or we can simply buy two of these and run them in a RAID configuration."

Crucial MX100 SSD: Best Buy Award

"We find it hard to list any negative for the MX100. With the performance and feature set, combined with pricing, the choice is obvious." Full review

HEXUS award

Crucial MX100 SSD: Editor’s Choice Award

"The 512GB model is fast, better equipped to handle performance degradation than its M500 forebear, and is endowed with a number of technologies normally reserved for top-tier SSDs." Full review

eTeknix award

June 2014 – eTeknix

Crucial MX100 SSD: Editor's Choice Award

"The story for the MX100 is short and to the point though, simply put it is a cheap drive that carries the all the right credentials that could make it fall into the enthusiast market, where the pricing is far stronger – especially for a 512GB drive. So if you are looking for a drive that delivers a bucket load of performance, but at a pint-sized price, the MX100 is simply in a league of its own; and don’t forget that there are 128GB and 256GB options out there if you want to stick below the £100 price tag." Full review

HardwareHeaven award

June 2014 – HardwareHeaven

Crucial MX100 SSD: Recommended Award

"In terms of performance the MX100, despite its lower price point, competes well with other drives on the market. That brings us to value where the MX100 range starts at £56.99 for the 128GB version, rising to £159.99 for the 512GB reviewed here. The stand out model in terms of value is the 256GB version for just £78.99. A fantastic deal for a drive with current generation features and components." Full review awards

Crucial M550 SSD: Editor's Choice /Editor Rating Excellent

"Crucial has continued to move forward with their SSDs, and the M550 is a step forward from the M500. Crucial's M550 is one very fast drive, and also it manages to keep the price very low. Try not to overlook this excellent drive if you're looking for a new SSD." Full review

Crucial M550 SSD: Editor’s Choice Award

"Overall, I'm pleased with its performance, and the performance differences in this market segment are too small to be noticeable during normal use anyway. It's also good to see that Crucial has done away with overprovisioning, which allows you to use the drive's full capacity without any loss in performance." Full review

Crucial M550 SSD: Bang for Buck Award

"With the M550, Crucial are focusing more on the cost of the drive – whilst at the same time keeping the performance figures up, the result being one of the cheapest high performance drives that we've seen to date." Full review

CDRInfo award

Crucial M550 SSD: Best Buy Award

"The Crucial M550 512GB is an overall solid SSD designed for everyone, packed with performance and enterprise features and available at a competitive price. The 512GB (488.4GB for the user) drive is retailing for $337 which is translated to a great $0.69 per GB." Full review

Crucial M550 SSD: Recommended Award

"With the M550 being the latest version of Crucials SSD family they have had a few generations to tweak the product and it shows. We get a no-frills bundle, keeping costs at a minimum and the drive casing is an all metal construction, always appreciated. The components inside are all created by a company who has built is business on having high quality, reliable chips and the controller used is a new revision of a proven part." Full review

Crucial M500 SSD: PC Advisor Recommended Award

"Crucial has returned to the hit list of must-have SSDs with its M500. Not because it's the fastest but because it has great multi-platform PC support, a good balance on large and small file transfer speeds, and an attractive price without relying on slow performance three-layer cell (TLC) flash technology. And if its terabyte-class flash SATA storage you're looking for, it's currently the only player." -- PC Advisor, 21st May 2013

May 2013 —

Crucial M500 SSD: Best Buy Award

"The Crucial M500 SSD is a major step forward for Crucial and Micron, as the new SSD is much faster than the previous Crucial m4 SSD. The Crucial M500 480GB left us with the impression of a solid SSD designed for everyone, packed with performance and enterprise features and available at a competitive price." Full review

Crucial M500 SSD: Editor's Choice Award

"Why try to re invent the wheel when you have the tools and the knowledge to improve it? That's what Crucial did, and they did very well. The M500 SSD is a clear step forward in all directions. It has excellent performance and cutting edge technology in both hardware and firmware and most importantly it comes at a price that you simply can't ignore. There isn't much more to ask from an SSD." Full review

Hardware Heaven Value Award

April 2013 —

Crucial M500 SSD: Hardware Heaven Value Award

"One of the things we always like to see on a SSD is a good solid casing and Crucial don't disappoint here. We appreciate that a drive tucked away in a system isn't likely to get damaged but the metal gives a feel of quality and shows that the manufacturer isn't trying to cut every cost they can. We also like that Crucial have gone with a casing that is suitable for both 7mm and 9.5mm drive locations which makes it an ideal upgrade for mobile systems as well as desktops." Full review

Crucial Ballistix Sport DDR4 16GB kit: Recommended Award

"Well priced, decent looks, good performance and a lengthy warranty, the Crucial Ballistix Sport 16GB DDR4 is a worthy winner of our recommended award." Full review

Crucial Ballistix Sport XT: Silver Award

"Performance wise the Crucial Ballistix Sport XT 8GB performed well, even beating our previous top performing 1866MHz RAM, the HyperX Fury. Surprisingly throughout the Gaming benchmarks they even gave our fastest RAM, the HyperX Beast a run for their money and they were set at 2400MHz via XMP, perhaps even more surprising was how little difference in performance between a single 4GB DIMM and the full 8GB kit! At just shy of £70, they are pretty much the same value as any other 8GB 1866MHz DDR3 kit currently available. I really can’t see any reason not to recommend the Crucial Ballistix Sport XT 8GB Kit."

Crucial 32GB 2133MHz Quad Channel DDR4: Best Buy Award

"If you’re looking to venture into the world of DDR4 then it need not be as expensive as you think. Crucial’s Premium Memory range offers an affordable path to the next generation of memory products. Stability, reliability and overclockability have come along for the ride too." Full review

Crucial 32GB 2133MHz Quad Channel DDR4: Recommended Award

"Then we have Crucial with their no frills approach which will likely maximise stability (lower, less stressful MHz) while providing a larger 32GB limit. What these modules do offer over the other kits in this test is a larger size, 8GB each for 32GB total in quad channel mode." Full review

Crucial Ballistix Tactical: Silver Award

"Hats off to Crucial here they’ve put together a bold and impressive product with the Crucial Ballistix Tactical Series." Full review award

Crucial Ballistix Sport VLP: Recommended Award

"In terms of value the VLP sticks are priced competitively and we get Crucial's usual lifetime warranty... so it's good news all round really…..A nice alternative to some larger modules and a perfect purchase for those concerned by module height, available space or even energy use."
