In the last few years, computer users have slowly started to embrace the use of solid state disks (SSDs) as opposed to the use of hard disk drives (HDDs) for their desktop PCs and laptops. The slow transformation is probably due to the fact that SSDs have been for some time quite expensive as compared to their HDD counterpart. Thanks to companies such as crucial Inc, these awesome devices are now much more affordable. The amazing thing is that they come with quite a number of awesome features such as thermal shock resistance and power conservation for PC. They are also less noisy as compared to HDDs, whose noise is caused by the spinning of the data disks inside them. Below, we compare the features of the crucial MX100 and the crucial M500 to see which one is more worth to go for in terms of various factors.
The MX100 is one of the latest and cheapest16nm SSD in the market to date. It is faster in write and read speed and much more reliable in terms of server performance than its counterpart the M500. It is however slightly more expensive as compared to the MX500 that is closest to it in terms of storage capacity. For instance MX100 256 GB costs approximately $5 more than M500 240GB. On the other hand, the M500 is slightly more cost effective but weaker in performance. It is however more reliable as far as power conservation is concerned. See also Crucial M4 Vs M500.
