I'm patiently waiting until it hits $160. Should be so around mid-November.

No the mx100 is their newest "value" line. Only been out maybe 6 months.

Like the poster before me said that this is their latest version. OTH newer does not equal better. Older drives usually had better nand and stable firmware. Take the EVO and is reported problem as an example.

Older was often better.

Newer SSDs have smaller cell NAND.... which while faster, lasts for fewer write cycles than previous. (Tests have shown the fewer cycles are still adequate for consumer drives in that they will likely last far longer than consumers would ever use them.)

In one 3-year "write endurance" test, there was an Intel X25-V, 40GB SSD with MLC, 50nm NAND. When the test was concluded, this drive had still not failed... and had written 1.6PB of data. That is REALLY a lot! (The typical warranty on today's drives is more like 36-72TB.)

I bought this drive for $210 on Amazon a few months ago. It's been doing really well! Replaced my 256Gb Crucial M4. Even though it's a "value" model (the m550 is Crucial's top of the line SSD), I see no problems with it.

Is this better that the $165 Mushkin one from newegg which was posted yesterday?

Really hoping to see a TD price match. Would love to get an extra $15 off and no tax. Scoring this drive for $173 + 5% cashback would be insane.

Contemplating this, as I've recently got a M4 512gb from a previous fp deal.

Is longevity really an issue for this series compared to the M4?

NO.. longevity of SSd has only ever been an issue for ENTERPRISE users. you will NEVER hit the bottom of the durability EVER as a regular user..


Even if you write 100 gigs to this thing everyday, you'll only run it dead in 7-10 years..

How many people can actually do that... the answer, pretty much NO ONE...



Servers, on the other hand could easily burn these out in 1-3 years.. OMG

These drives were released to the public late May this year, less than 4 months ago. There are not enough long-term usage data for them yet.
Crucial is a top-tier SSD manufacturer, but even top-tier manufacturers are not guaranteed not to have long-term problems resurface with their SSDs, Intel and Samsung are an example for this.
