[NCIX] Crucial MX200 250gb - $119 + FS @ NCIX. PM? YMMV.

http://www.ncix.com/detail/crucial-mx20 ... 6-1146.htm

simple. the drive is $119.99 which is a good price to begin with.

its in stock @ staples, and PM may be a possibility. You can than use whatever coupon fits with the $119.99 purchase (or add fillers to use visa $20/100 ect)

extremely limited hot deal though, hate ncix for its wording, so not sure about PM chances..

hope it works!

yeah, not a bad drive at all, personally i use the 850 evo, but at this price its not bad. cant go wrong either way - i dont have any sensitive data so i dont really care about that; just need speed.

From my point of view, in terms of "feel" pretty much any modern SSD has a similar speed, so the features become the differentiating factor.

I do agree, though - you can't really go wrong. Samsung, Intel and Crucial all make excellent, reliable drives. I put an 840 samsung in my parents' PC and it flies too!

Intel = Baller Drive. Get a 730 on a hot deal or if you have money to blow and SSDs are visible in the case. Amazing look + performance, top of the line speeds.

Samsung = Best all around. prices on deals have come to the point where its worth it to just wait for a good 850 evo or pro deal (pro warranty is nice). speed demons.

Crucial = very reliable, solid performance, budget friendly. my m500 240gb for $84.99 was a great deal. although it had slower write speeds, i just write everything once aside from documents i work on (only load progams and games when i format fresh, dont really add much) ... the read was comparable to this 850 evo and its an old budget level crucial drive. the mx200 is a step up in performance though, comparable to 850 evo and 530 intel.

not much difference really. whatever is the best deal at the time is worth it lol. doesnt make sense to buy any other ssd drive to me though.

Benchmarks suggest the speed difference is only there in benchmarks and a few, but not all, write tests(read scores came back near identical). The bigger size is nice but I wouldn't get it just for the speed difference.

yeah its noting to be noticed in real world really, but usually the larger the ssd the better the performance. bigger jump from 120-240 though. and sometimes 1tb can go back down a bit

That's generally a function of cheaper low capacity SSD that use a smaller amount of high capacity chips. Generally better low capacity SSD will use more smaller chips so the performance drop vs the higher capacity is negligible. I know the MX200 250GB uses chips half the capacity of the 500 but not sure about the Evo(though performance benchmarks seems to suggest it does).

Just FYI for those wanting to PM at Staples: the VISA Checkout promo doesn't seem to work anymore, so you'll have to use the standard Staples coupons floating around...
