Think you really missed out on the software side of the review. The Crucial Storage Executive software that is browser based. I actually really like it with it's only flaw is slow startup times. I think reviewing that would really give the reader something to look at outside of multiple graphs with scores as most ssds are so fast telling the difference really isn't noticeable in day to day usage. I think if it was added you could even drive home the point in extreme affordability along with dependability and ease of use

Other than solid review. Did a good job putting the price factor into perspective given the size of the drive. Keep it up Bryan

they are just still to expensive per GB for me. i cant stretch a budget for ssd's over 1 250gb drive "max" I do realize prices are drpping but im also getting older lol. they need to get to a price i can afford before i die of old age.

Their not too bad price wise if you can out source one, our issue is the monumental taxes we have to suffer to get them here in the UK. Give it another 6 months or so and we should start to see a further drop in prices with the new fabrication processes and stacking technologies.

The size, together with the price are both pretty compelling to me.

Good review.

Not really satisfied

The BX200 is in other reviews seen as the lowest performer even if the price is low aswell, the prices are too high for the performance one get, if it's compared to other drives around the same price. Hell, the BX100 which is comparable, if not better, is cheaper, around £206.

So for those who want a cheap storage SSD, get the BX100 while the supplies last.

The BX200 suffers from massive performance drops when reading and writing to the SSD at the same time, also known as mixed sequential data rate

According to graphs from Anandtech, (so hard to get exact data)
Read/Write Percentage Data Rate Power Consumption
100/0% ~360MB/s ~2W
80/20% ~180MB/s ~2.2W
60/40% ~110MB/s ~2.4W
40/60% ~80MB/s ~4W
20/80% ~75MB/s ~4.3W
0/100% ~70MB/s ~4.4W

I remembered reading about this disk in early November, and being underwhelmed, so just thought I'd share why I found this reviews conclusion somewhat lacking.

Any SSD that lacks obvious errors(like this) is a major upgrade from any Harddrive, however when you can get a 1TB BX100 cheaper, which performs better, with a mixed sequential data rate that never drops below 220MB/s, and power draw that tops out at around 3.2W. I just can't understand why you'd give this a gold award.
