CRUCIAL MX300 750GB SSD Review

Posted August 18, 2016 by Josh Jackson in Storage, HDs & SSDs


Price at time of Review: $178.80 on Amazon


Great overall price, low cost per gig, solid performance


While not the best performing SATA SSD, the price and capacity make it a great (and only) option for an OS/Game drive that splits the difference between 500GB and 1 Terabyte.

If you don’t own an SSD by now, you really should. Nothing is quite as satisfying as seeing Windows boot up in mere seconds, versus the half a minute or more it sometimes takes with traditional hard disk drives. Solid State used to be pretty pricey, but it seems like those prices are dropping every day making good drives much easier for any consumer to get their hands on. CRUCIAL is a company that may get overlooked when it comes to some of the other juggernauts in the industry. However, they seem to have a good range of drives that perform decently while being at a reasonable price. Today, we’ll see how the MX300 with 750GB of capacity measures up, but before we do, here’s a quick section from CRUCIAL’s site that tell us a little bit about them.

Expertise is

We live and breathe memory and storage, but it’s not just a work thing. We build our own rigs, geek out over new technology, and game as soon as we’re off the clock. We’re constantly learning, and we like jumping on the forums to answer your questions just as much as we enjoy walking you through the install process so you don’t have to figure it out on your own.

Compatibility is

With more than 100,000 products on the market, memory and storage used to be notoriously hard to buy. But when you use our System Scanner or Crucial Advisor tool, years of compatibility research are at your fingertips. In just three questions, we’ll learn enough about your system to provide a list of guaranteed compatible parts – it’ll take less than a minute.

Reliability is

Memory runs the apps you use all day, every day, and SSDs store your digital life. Reliability is important. From sand to silicon to finished product, every Crucial memory module and SSD must pass hundreds of quality inspections and undergo additional reliability testing before leaving our doors. We’re able to make our products from start-to-finish (as opposed to having to assemble them from chips made elsewhere).

is Crucial

Thirty-five years ago when Micron started, we were one of over 40 memory manufacturers. Now there are just a handful. We’re one of them, and we’re here to make all types of memory and SSD upgrades available to you.
