Crucial MX300 datasheet
Increase the speed, durability, and efficiency of your system for years to come with the Crucial MX300 SSD. Boot up in seconds and fly through the most demanding applications with an SSD that fuses the latest 3D NAND flash technology with the proven success of previous MX-series SSDs. Your storage drive isn't just a container, it's the engine that loads and saves everything you do and use. Get more out of your computer by boosting nearly every aspect of performance.
Instantly improve system performance
The Crucial MX300 reaches read speeds up to 530 MB/s and write speeds up to 510 MB/s1 on all file types so you can boot up almost instantly, reduce load times, and accelerate demanding applications with ease. Plus, our Dynamic Write Acceleration technology uses an adaptable pool of high-speed, single-level cell flash memory to generate blistering speeds throughout the drive's long life.
Over 90x more energy efficient than a typical hard drive2
Extreme Energy Efficiency technology within the Crucial MX300 reduces the amount of active power usage that's consumed by the drive. The Crucial MX300 extends your laptop's battery life by using only 0.075W of power, compared to a typical hard drive which uses 6.8W.
Entrust your files to a drive that lasts
With an endurance rating of up to 400TB total bytes written, the Crucial MX300 is engineered with Micron 3D NAND to deliver years of fast performance. The 3D NAND leverages larger NAND cells to improve performance and prolong endurance.
Keep your system cool
In addition to lower active power usage, Adaptive Thermal Protection technology dynamically adjusts storage component activity. This helps keep your system cool and minimizes the risk of damage caused by overheating.

The cost of a new Mac should be astronomical and I really couldn't afford to buy a newer model. There is nothing wrong with my MacBook Pro but it was showing its age due to how slow it was. I bought this SSD as an update and add more memory. Can't believe the difference it has made. This simple change has more than halved the start up time and opening of apps is almost instant. I highly recommend this SSD to anyone. I'd previously bought RAM from Crucial so knew the quality would be excellent.
I had SSD drive professionally installed by an independent computer/IT into my 2010 27inch Quad core i7 iMac. They informed me that it will fit in behind the optical drive (without losing the optical drive). Now I have a 1TB start up disk and 1TB storage drive. Boot up is 30 seconds as opposed to 5 minutes with stock hard drive. New life in what is still a great machine!
I purchased one of these to replace my system Hard Drive in my Dell Laptop, I then formatted it in three partitions for Windows 10, Documents and Music, I then did a clean install of Windows 10, it activated first time with no hassle as laptop had already been upgraded to Windows 10 with it's existing hard drive so activation was a breeze.
Laptop is far more responsive, fast and now complexly quite apart from when the CPU fan starts up, even then it's ultra quite.
I have 2 of these installed in a 5 yearr old laptop.
It beats all the newer laptops for connectivity and functionality.
Easy to clone the old hard drive, lightening quick SSD, PC boots in 1/4 of the time.
Also received great technical support.
