Pros and Cons of Crucial MX200 1TB vs 960GB BX200?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Googled a bit and didn't really see anything and I don't know anything about it. I need two of one of them. Thoughts?

The BX200 will perform decently as long as you do not write enough that you fill the SLC-cache (9 or 12GB).
That is aside from the high latency and the fact that old files can suffer from degraded read speeds like with the 840 EVO.

The MX200 will perform a lot better under heavy strain (given that it uses MLC NAND rather than TLC NAND like the BX200 does).
Latency does not match the best drives but is better than the BX200.

So between those two I myself would definitely go with the MX200 especially with the small price difference compared to BX200.


If you're on a budget and want something that will perform better than the BX200 but will be a lot cheaper than the MX200 I'd recommend looking at the OCZ Trion 150 or SanDisk Ultra II in the same store for a much better balance of performance vs cost than the BX200 provides.
Though they may not match the MX200 in performance.
