Crucial MX200 500GB M.2 SSD Review

After our test of Crucial MX200 1 TB and MX200 500 GB Solid State Drives we like to examine the M.2 SSD from the Crucial MX200 series in this SSD review. We had among other SSDs the Crucial M550 M.2 and the Plextor M6e PCIe M.2 SSD tested each in 2280 size and were pleasantly surprised. Now we benchmark the Crucial MX200 500 GB M.2 SSD in the smaller 2260 form factor and compare the results with dozens of SSDs. We will also clarify the differences compared to the M.2 SSD predecessors. But first let us start with the price and the delivery of Crucial MX200 500 GB M.2 SSD CT500MX200SSD6.
