Crucial BX200 480GB CT480BX200SSD1 Review

Key features

  • TLC (Triple Level Cell) Drive
  • 3-year warranty
  • 72TB Endurance

Introduction

The BX200 480GB is the 480GB variant of Crucials BX200 series of cost effective designed SSD’s. A standard 2.5”/7mm internal drive, capable of SATA III (up to 6Gb/s), the Crucial BX200 480GB has a three year warranty. The length of warranty is low compared to its direct competitors such as the Samsung 850 Evo, which has a 5 year warranty. Unlike Crucials other SSD lineups, the BX200 series have Triple Level Cell technology (TLC)—released to effectively compete with what is the new standard of low price, high performing TLC based SSDs on today’s market.

What is the overall performance ?

The Crucial BX200 has a Random Read Speed of 66k IOPS, and a Random Write speed of 78k IOPS. While this is superior to the Intel 535 series, it is under that of the Samsung 850 Evo’s 500GB, 98k IOPS Read and 90k IOPS Write speed. The biggest drawback of the BX200’s performance, is that it has a very small cache drive—6GB in fact—when file sizes tend to exceed the size of the cache, transfer speeds drop dramatically to around 70-80Gbps much lower than would be considered sufficient from a modern SSD, particularly compared to competing devices. The BX200 480GB has an endurance rating of 72TB’s—which indicates the number of read/write cycles the SSD can endure before degrading in quality and becomes unreliable. The endurance of the BX200 480GB is best suited to the light user who would use the drive for storage of smaller files and data, but perhaps not for high intensity tasks like editing or transcoding of HD video content—the Crucial 1TB MX200 would be better suited to that.

Conclusion: Should I buy it ?

If your budget is very tight, and you are willing to make some hefty sacrifices in terms of fast read/write speeds—particularly if you plan on transferring large files regularly, you can expect the speed of the drive to drop well below what competing drives would in the same situation. While day-today transfer speeds of smaller files will be good, consider purchasing the BX200 only if you plan on using the SSD on a casual basis. For those looking for something a touch more reliable, faster, or of higher performance—consider options like the Kingston V300 or the Samsung 850 Evo—which has a higher warranty of 5 years, offering buyers peace of mind that the drive will not fail or cause issue only a few years into use.

  • The Good :
    Affordable
