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.

I bought this SSD (2TB) as an update of my inspiron 7520. It works very well, so far. It's fast and light. It was very easy to install. I am unsure of what's going to happen with the new nand SSDs: will this model be superseded within the next few months?
Not the easiest job to fit a replacement hard drive in a 2011 Mac Mini and not a job to undertake unless you are confident in taking computers apart and more importantly, putting them together again so that they work. Using an external SATA housing and cloning software, transferring the data to the new drive, making it bootable was an easy if lengthy process, due to the throughput limitations on USB2. A Thunderbolt SATA housing would speed this considerably. The new 2TB Crucial SSD has transformed my 2011 Mac Mini, which is used as a media store and streamer. It boots very rapidly and is more stable in operation than it was with the 500GB rotating drive. Accessing large 16 bit TIFF photo files (180MB) is dramatically faster and batch DNG/RAW processing runs at close to double the speed. Delighted with the new drive.
