Crucial 32GB Solid State Drive

Final Words and Conclusion

What We Did Like

The Crucial SSD device has many advantages over mechanical drives. For a start there is better shock resistance, much lower power consumption, considerably less heat dissipation and far greater reliability. However it has a great advantage over the first generation MLC NAND SSD drives as well; as it is considerably faster. The first MLC drives would struggle to maintain a constant read speed of 20MB/s, while the Crucial SSD is 6 times faster than that. It can easily outperform high performance desktop mechanical HDDs, so it is safe to conclude that its performance will crush any 2.5" laptop mechanical drives which are considerably slower.

What We Did Not Like

The only thing that will not let the Crucial SSD drive sell en masse is the asking price, which currently is as much as a value laptop itself! High performance SSD drives are still extremely expensive and meant only for the highest performance laptops and systems.

Who Would We Recommend It To

Unfortunately the outlay is a very limiting factor for those thinking of purchasing a high performance SSD drive. It certainly is very fast and virtually indestructible, but at the same time it is extremely expensive. At the rate flash technology is progressing we can guess that the asking price will be reasonable in around 12 months time.
If ultimate speed is the all important factor to you however then the Crucial 32GB SSD drive will certainly not let you down; if you want even more performance, you can always assemble a very fast (and extremely expensive) RAID 0 array.

Considering all of the above, we believe that the performance of the Crucial SSD 32GB drive earns it our Editor’s Choice Award.
