Summary: Crucial's RealSSD C300 shows impressive real-life performance in both SATA-II and SATA 6 Gb/s mode. When running on a SATA-II controller it is able to surpass most of the Sandforce based drives, in 6 Gb/s mode it even manages to be the fastest SSD we tested so far.
Pros: Great price/performance ratio, SATA 6 Gb/s support, Excellent real-life performance, Supports TRIM, Rugged metal case
Cons: Can not max out SATA 6 Gb/s interface, Relatively low [synthetic] write speeds
Summary: We were certainly excited when Crucial announced the 64GB version of its C300. We believe an SSD is the best upgrade you can spend on a modern PC; you’ll certainly notice the improvement in performance more than most CPU or memory upgrades.
Pros: - Superlative read speed, - Native 6Gb/s interface, - Well-optimised TRIM, - Extremely good value
Summary: The occasionally lackluster write performance numbers might lead you to believe that this drive is underperforming, and in the strictest sense, that is true. In practice, however, a SSD used as a boot drive is being read from far more often than it’s being written to.
