The maker of M500, M550, MX100, and BX100 has been selling crap as of late.

BX200 and MX300 are terrible.

It saids something when the new products are worse than the outgoing products.

Ah, thought so, a benchmark queen. The MOST important factor in an SSD is reliability...it is IMPOSSIBLE to perceive the speed difference between an mx200 and 300 in real world use. Have you bothered to LEARN and UNDERSTAND what the reviews MEAN?

I am not one of those person that buys based solely on benchmarks.

That said, it's something is clearly not well when the new product is worse than the outgoing one.

Imagine if the 2018 Toyota Camry is worse than the outgoing model. The "I bet you won't notice it" excuse is not going to work.

IF you cant notice it then it doesnt matter except to folks like you who care about silly benchmarks..its not worse if its a hair lower on a silly benchmark...its certainly not a "terrible" drive as you describe..

Crucial and Micron don't sell hard drives, never have.

Well, Micron's been busy with Intel at least. This technology looks amazingly promising (and really exists!)
