Crucial debuts the BX200 solid-state drive

Crucial, which is mostly known for making high-performance and reliable computer memory, has announced the debut of the new BX200 solid-state drive line. The mission of the new SSD line is to offer excellent performance, wrapped in an affordable price, for all people who still use hard drives as their primary way to store digital information.

“The new Crucial BX200 SSD is an ideal solution for consumers whose computers are slowed down by an old or inadequate hard drive,” said Jonathan Weech, senior worldwide product manager, Crucial. “This SSD is the perfect blend of performance and value, allowing a user to get more done and have more fun. Installing a BX200 will help users enjoy their computers again.”

The new BX200 line includes three models as of now with capacities of 240 GB, 480 GB and 960 GB. The line is based on 16 nm TLC NAND flash memory, made by Micron and uses Silicon Motion SM2256 controllers that are capable of providing sequential read speeds of up to 540 MB/sec and sequential write speeds of up to 490 MB/sec as well as random read and write speeds of up to 66 000 and 78 000 IOPS, respectively. The new SSD line is also supported by the Crucial Storage Executive tool and comes with a 3-year warranty. The SSD drive package includes Acronis True Image HD software for easy data migration too.

The new BX200 drives are available for GBP 66.99 (240 GB model), GBP 116.99 (480 GB model) and GBP 234.99 (960 GB model). There’s no information on when you will be able to see the BX200 in stores but we suspect this will happen very soon.
