I PERSONALLY prefer SLC (if cheap) or MLC drives. For the durability.


(Please, no need to educate me the differences between TLC and MLC, or their pros/cons, or how good the new TLC drives are. I use SLC chips to make my own flash drives. I thank you first~~~~~)
No need to show off.

High capacity SLC has been out of production for many years. Out of which pot at the end of which rainbow do you source your SLC NAND from?

Really solid SSD. I recommend it. It doesn't destroy on the synthetic benchmarks, but it's got Crucial's reliability and a massive speed boosts for HDD's. No performance hiccups like the BX200 either.

I've installed a few of these for people and the speed boost compared to HDD is massive. Dell Inspiron 15 i5558 went from like 65 seconds boot time to 10-15 seconds after switching to one of these. No tangible performance difference between this (the m.2 version) and the 128GB drive that comes inside an XPS 13 (2016) either.

Crucial MX300 SSD are really good. Sometimes I prefer them over Samsung's 850 evo
I actually experienced faster boot up time for MX300 than Evo 850.
