I picked one of these up when it was $360 and thought it was a steal back then. Nice drive, formats to 1.8 TB in Win 10 and is fast enough for me. In for one more to migrate my Stean games library to.

Thanks for posting!

Have anyone one solved the issue with Micron 1100 and booting? Sorry if the solution is in the threat, I can't find it. I went and pulled the trigger on two and put them in Raid 0. I used EaseUS Partition Master to clone the system, but when I boot with the volume as boot, it wont. It kicks me back to the bios and I have to reboot using the old drive. I tried several ways, but it just wont boot to the Micron's. By they way the read time using them in Raid 0 goes to abobe 1,000, so I think it was a good buy to send $600 on 4TB vesus the same price for a 2TB 850 or 860 Evo The 4TB evo is like $1400. I am not sure if it is the chipset that wont allow it to boot or not. I know that the Samsung 960 wont boot because of the chipset, is this the same issue?

If there is no solution, it wont bother me much. I am booting from another SSD, I just wanted bigger drive because I ran out of space. I can just install all the games and stuff in the Microns, given the read speed and continue using the SanDisk as boot drive.

Machine specs:

MoBo: Asus X99-A II
CPU: Core i7-6800k
Memory: 32GB DDR-3000
Cooler: Cryorig - A40

I'd be doing a fresh install. Last night I dealt with raid server upgrade nightmare. I caved, backed up and redid/formatted my arrays.

Hi! Could anyone run this benchmark with your 2TB Micron 1100?

So far no one has submitted any test results using this specific drive.

I am curious how it compares to other 2TB SATA SSDs.

http://www.userbenchmark.com/resources/download/UserBenchMark.exe
Here you go, the Micron 1100 drive was compared against multiple SSDs and HDDs including an NVMe drive:

https://babeltechreviews.com/the-kingstons-nvme-a1000-ssd-review/

Several game load time benchmarks and lots of synthetic testing.

TL;DR, the Micron 1100 drive did quite well and more than held its own. I have two of them in RAID-0 and they are about as fast as the NVMe drive tested in that review.

i have a 500, 250, 120gb ssd. im getting tired of running out of space and playing the file-shuffle game. my next one will be a 2TB
That's my issue too! I keep moving Steam games onto my boot SSD so my old/slow ass proc can manage them (5-2500k).
I was going to get a dedicated 1GB SSD just for games... but now I'm concerned that 2GB is better :/

I had my Win7/10 swap going to it's own 110MB SSD, but now... I just let WIndows manage itself too.

I think you mean TB, right?

1TB = 1024GB
1GB = 1024MB
1MB = 1024KB
1KB = 1024 bytes

The price is creeping up actually. About a week ago they were $257 and there was something like 5% Ebates and also some kind of 5% through a Chase credit card. I'm wondering if we have reached the bottom.

I don't think you're going to see these fall below $250 anytime soon, black friday perhaps?

Dang. And here I was regretting that I didn't hop on the $285 Newegg deal yesterday. :woot:

I got one when I first posted this at $350, I ended up getting another just now, at $250 it's an insane deal for the time being, I have not seen anything even close for $/GB.

I just bought 15 of these for $285 each :) I'm pretty happy with that, especially with a 3 year warranty. I bought them from a local computer store though.

All those for a single build/server or a number of client builds?

I have no use for one of these right now.

I bought one anyway. $251.96 after coupon and Rakuten points from the last time I bought one of these same drives.

I need help.

Buying tech you don't need is a requirement for [H] membership.

I will share my RAID-0 result with a pair of these drives:

micron_1100_motherboard_raid_0_crystal.png


My games load up significantly faster with two of these in RAID-0 compared to a single drive. I compared benchmarks and it's pretty much as fast as a decent NVMe drive for gaming. I'm very happy with it. I'm using a 16kb cluster size and Intel Coffee Lake onboard motherboard RAID. There's not even a RAID splash screen for my board so it's doesn't even delay my Windows boot time. I love it.
