The Crucial MX200 SSD is packed with great features

Components
[MUSIC] Hi, guys. **** Ngo here. And this is the MX200 solid state drive from Crucial. This is a drive that you use to replace your regular hard drive, such as this laptop drive right here. Or this desktop drive right here. Now standard because it take the 2.5 inch design. And over here, it has SHA port to connect to the host. The drive supports HSA3 [UNKNOWN] beats per second, but also works with older HSA standards. They're only 7 millimeter thick, but it also comes with this spacer right here to add a little bit more thickness to it to make it match perfectly with the standard hard drive. So the question is why do you want to replace your hard drive with an SSD. And that's because, among other things, SSD are so much faster and can boost performance of old computer like five year, ten years old, which otherwise you might as well just throw away. And compared to a regular hard drive, though, MX200 here is not just so much faster. It also comes with many features to keep the data you store safe. Now one of them is a technology called RAIN, which saves data in a multiple storage component. Just like raindrop that falls everywhere, you know? That means if one component fail, you can always retrieve data from others. On top of that, each storage component has four layer of exclusive data defense. That means the chance of it failing is very low, too. Now the MX200, it also has very high endurance rating, which is the amount of data you can write to it before it becomes unreliable. This 500 drive right here can handle 160 terabytes and that means if you write 40 gigabytes to it per day, everyday, it would take you 11 years to break it. Not even I- Don't know. Write that amount of data to any drive per day. And this one terabyte here drive can handle double that, or 320 terabytes. On top of that, the drive may also have a feature to make it use very little power. It supports hardware encryption and many other cool things. Now performance-wise, this one is also very, very good. In my testing it offered the sustained real world copy speed of more than 400 megabytes per second, which is the best I've ever seen. In other tests such as application performance and random access, it also did quite well, though not the best I've ever seen. But at the suggested price of $140, $250 and $470 for 250GB, 500GB, and 1TB, the drive here is still a great buy. For more on the drive here, check out my full review at cnet.com. You know, it's a great solid state drive with very high endurance. Chances are when this one runs out of life, we have people living on Mars. Not me. I love it too much. I just can not go. And that's because I'm [UNKNOWN]. This has been the first look at the MX200 solid state drive from Crucial. [MUSIC]
