Review: Crucial RealSSD C300 Solid State Drive Series

Crucial RealSSD C300 2.5″ SATA III MLC

There are many, many Solid State Drives (SSD) out there. But it’s difficult to decide which to get. Other than the OCZ Vertex, a fantastic option is the internal Crucial RealSSD C300.

This fantastic SSD has read speeds of up to 355MBs for some amazing performance and it works incredibly for Linux, Windows, and even Macintosh operating systems.

The non spinning, solid parts ensure that it works well with laptops and whatever else you throw at it. The OS will boot up fast — in under 10 seconds depending on your total hardware configuration. Your Windows Experience Index will increase significantly too.

This drive works best in SATA III mode and with the TRIM functionality enabled (if your motherboard has the option available in BIOS).

These Crucial RealSSD drives have AMAZING ratings too. 5/5 stars on NewEgg AND 4.5 stars on Amazon. And why? Because the performance speaks for itself! I’ll try to get some benchmarks on here and maybe some tests soon.
