Crucial MX200 SSD Features

The new Crucial MX200 SSD delivers sequential read and write speeds of up to 555MB/s and 500MB/s, along with random reads and writes up to 100k and 87k IOPS on all file types. Additionally, with an endurance rating up to 320 TBW (total bytes written) on the 1TB model, the Crucial MX200 delivers up to five times more endurance than a typical client SSD.

The Crucial MX200 is also the only consumer drive on the market with Dynamic Write Acceleration, a new and unique technology that enables faster saves and file transfers. Furthermore, the MX200 also offers a host of industry-leading features, including:

  • Best-in-class AES 256-bit encryption to protect data at the highest possible level
  • Exclusive Data Defense to guard against corrupt files
  • Adaptive Thermal Protection to keep systems cool
  • Power Loss Protection to preserve user data if power is lost

Each Crucial MX200 SSD includes Acronis® True Image™ HD data migration software that moves all files, operating systems, settings, and programs from an existing hard drive to a newly installed SSD. This patented disk-imaging technology powered by Acronis’ AnyData Engine allows users to quickly, easily, and accurately utilize their new SSD as their system drive.

In addition to the standard 2.5″ form factor, Crucial will also be releasing the MX200 in mSATA and M.2 form factors.
