The Crucial MX100 SSD makes your computer faster and more efficient – at a price that will make you think twice about getting a hard drive
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 GB. Not so with the Crucial® MX100 SSD. Leveraging years of R&D and the latest NAND technology, the Crucial MX100 delivers a low cost per gigabyte, combined with unrelenting performance and one of the most complete feature sets available. With the Crucial MX100, boot up and load programs almost instantly, accelerate demanding applications, and encrypt and protect everything on your computer.
Every MX100 includes a download of Acronis True Image 2014 OEM Edition PC Backup and Recovery
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.
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.1
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.
Protect all of your data—even if the power goes out.
With Power Loss Protection, if you happen to be saving a file and you suddenly lose access to power, your data will still be preserved.
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.

1 Some of the storage capacity is used for formatting and other purposes and is not available for data storage. 1GB equals 1 billion bytes.
2 Typical I/O performance numbers as measured using IOMeter® with a queue depth of 32 and write cache enabled. Fresh out-of-box (FOB) state is assumed. For performance measurement purposes, the SSD may be restored to FOB state using the secure erase command. System variations will affect measured results.
