    If you are in need of a large SSD, the crew at Legit Reviews recommend the Crucial MX300 1TB solid state drive they just reviewed. I think the take away here is that its a big drive with a small price tag.

    Three months ago Crucial announced the MX300 750GB ‘Limited Edition’ SSD to celebrate their brand new Micron 3D TLC NAND Flash memory technology. We reviewed the MX300 750GB drive and found that the Micron 3D TLC NAND along with the Marvell 88SS1074 controller and Crucial custom firmware proved to be a winning combination. Crucial has since released 275GB, 525GB, and 1050GB (1TB) and 2TB versions to join the existing MX300 750GB model, so there are now five different capacities to pick from if you want a Crucial MX300 series SSD in the 2.5-inch SATA III form factor.

    I already have 2 Crucial MX-200 500GB, M2 SSDs, running on both these MBs (GA-X99-SLI and GA-UD3-CF), although it took a little "Jury Rigging" to fit it into the GA-X99-UD3-CF SSD, and I Love them, but would like the 1TB Capacity, if they'll fit these MBs.

    Nice to see, just recommended someone a cheap 750GB to and data sanitation and go all SSD instead of getting a new HD.

    The sustained writes are not bad. I had a Kingston V400 480GB in last week and that dropped to 105MBps sustained writes. Still better then the terrible BX200 that dropped to around 30MBps.
