Crucial, a leading global brand of memory and storage upgrades, has officially released the BX200 SSD, which is the company’s latest entry into the crowded SSD market. The BX200 features a Silicon Motion SM2256 Controller that is coupled with Micron verified firmware, which ensures ultimate reliability and affordability. The drive offers read speeds of up to 540MB per second as well as write speeds of up to 490MB per second, which taken as a whole is roughly 13 times faster than a traditional hard drive. Energy efficiency is also impressive when compared to a traditional hard drive, as the BX200 SSD is approximately 40 times more efficient, allowing for a cooler and quitter system. Jonathan Weech, the Senior Worldwide Product Manager at Crucial, noted that "The new Crucial BX200 SSD is an ideal solution for consumers whose computers are slowed down by an old or inadequate hard drive."

The BX200 only comes in a 2.5-inch form factor but features capacities that include 240GB, 480GB, and 960GB. The drive comes with Acronis True Image HD data migration software, a limited three-year warranty, and support for the Crucial Storage Executive tool.
