They may not be the fastest SSDs around right now, but the MX300 will still blaze past any HDD sitting in your rig. And you get a little more storage space for your money too, and on an SSD that normally comes at a premium.
Our favourite SSDs though are still the Samsung drives, and the 850 EVO is still the price/performance hero of the 2.5-inch drives even now. There’s not a huge amount off the standard price, but at £80 it’s still a good deal.
If you want raw speed, however, you can go for a new-fangled M.2 drive – if your motherboard has a spare socket that it. They’re absolutely the fastest SSDs, and Samsung is ruling the roost in M.2 land too.
SanDisk make ultra-reliable SSDs (see what I did there?) so they’re definitely worth a look, especially when their Ultra drives are available at a knock down price. For the performance, and capacity, this is a good price right now.
But if it really is all about size, then the 1TB version of Crucial’s MX300 range is a great price at less than 21p per GB of pacey SSD storage. Maybe as a second Steam library…
Samsung are the SSD supremos, and the 850 EVO is our favourite 2.5-inch drive when it comes to its mix of great price and top-end SATA performance. This is the cheapest we’ve found the drive for in the US.
But if you want raw capacity then Crucial’s MX300 range is a great shout. They’re not quite as quick as the Samsung 850 EVOs, but they offer a lot more space for your money.
Drop in Newegg’s eNewsletter promo code and you’ll get an extra saving on this 240GB SSD. PNY may not be the first name that comes to your mind when you think of storage, this 2.5-inch drive is still pushing up to the limits of SATA.
Another Newegg eNewsletter promo code will net you $10 off this Western Digital Blue SSD. Like the PNY it’s running at the same sort of speeds as some of the best 2.5-inch SATA drives around, and is a decent price with the discount.
