The arrival of the solid-state drive (SSD) has revolutionised the speed at which modern PCs perform common tasks. This is because SSDs have no moving parts, compared to larger, bulkier mechanical drives, thus they store information on memory chips. This means that accesses, reads and writes are many, many times faster

1TB Crucial MX300, 2.5" SSD, SATA III - 6Gb/s, Read 530MB/s, Write 510MB/s, 92k/83K IOPS, Retail is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Large capacity and high speed, cheaper options available I used this to upgrade a friend's computer whose machine was relatively fast, with the exception of a very slow mechanical hard drive. I used software to clone their hard drive over to this one. The boot time on the mechanical hard drive was about 4 minutes and 30 seconds. After cloning the hard drive and putting the SSD in, the boot time reduced to about 40 seconds. For an SSD, that's a little bit slow, but that's because it was an old installation of Windows. There are cheaper options available at the same capacity of this SSD, but I cannot comment on their speeds and reliability. Crucial, Samsung, and Intel tend to have lower failure rates and higher speeds than other brands, which may be the reason for the higher price tag. I would recommend this product if you wish to have one large, fast drive with all of your data, programs, and games on it, or if you absolutely HAVE to clone an existing installation over to an SSD without reinstalling your OS. An alternative cheaper option would be to get a 240GB or 256GB SSD, and install your operating system, programs, and games on that, then get a 1TB HDD to store your data and some games on that.
