Only a few days back, we posted of the SanDisk SSD Plus, a new SSD aimed directly at the new SSD consumer, and this morning at CES, Micron not only equals that with their new BX100 line, but also, they up it by also including the Crucial BX100 512 and 1TB SSDs.

The BX100 is a SATA 3 notebook entry SSD and is based on the ever popular SMI 2246EN controller, while the MX200 still relies on Marvell designs.  Both have a 3 year warranty. Performance for both the BX100 and MX100 can be seen in this slide:

Many may not be aware, but Crucial was the first and is definitely at the forefront of pushing SSD prices down for the consumer, while at the same time providing a very high caliber SSD.  In fact…if I think back more than a few years, they were actually the first company to market a SATA 3 SSD and almost a year before any other manufacturer.

  1. Will need to widen the margin between bx100 and mx200, I expect the bx100 to be even cheaper than the slides let on. After all this is still 2d nand, and the only thing bx100 will have is cheapest cost per GB .. hmm 110-120gbp for 0.5TB sounds about right?
