Crucial RealSSD 64Gb – Conclusion

CONCLUSIONS

The price for the Crucial C300 64Gb SSD at the time of writing was $139.99 which puts this at $2.18/Gb, well below the competition. Crucial has the only present release of a SATA 3 SSD on the market. Crucials C300 64Gb has the single highest SATA SSD scores available to the consumer. The warranty for this SSD is 3 years. In testing, the Crucial C300 64Gb SSD not only pulled in the highest score in SATA 3 mode, but also, it fared just below the OWC and above the Intel when tested in SATA 2.

Given exception to capacity, there just doesn’t seem to be any reason to not take a serious look at this drive whether you are looking at a SATA 2 or SATA 3 drive. For those who don’t have SATA 3 in their desktop, there are cards available right now at cheap prices that will allow one to run this SSD at top speeds.

For those who worry about its small capacity, it just may be a wise thought to consider alternate methods of storage in exchange for the high performance of a SSD. On laptops, many have turned to swapping their DVDs with the traditional hard drive for storage while running the SSD for the OS and main software as well as purchasing larger flash cards. Quite frankly, its entirely possible to breath new life in your system for less than $200 with this SSD and a little ingenuity. How can you go wrong?
