    Crucial has recently issued a new model SSD, "Crucial MX300, 275GB SATA 2.5"" which costs around seventy(70) Dollars. I am ready to pull-the-trigger on the older "Crucial MX200" SSD model for my MM(Late 2012) but now trying to get some new information on the newer MX300. Any thought??

    Probably just an updated product (MX200 --> MX300).

    Looks like they're giving you some extra storage space for your money. SSD's previously have come in 240gb and 256gb sizes…

    I've used Crucial products for a while, they've performed well.

    Good review here. The biggest change is the 300 uses a new 3D TLC NAND chip with better endurance.

    But for normal, consumer usage, if you can get a deal on the MX200, I see no reason to spend extra money on the MX300.

    Been waiting for the lower size MX300 as it was originally only available at 750gb for $299.99.

    I bought 1 a few days back at $69.99, I think 275GB over 240GB, 250GB, 256GB at about the same price point (compared to other brands) or even cheaper is a plus.

    Samsung has been dominating the ssd market with "Rapid Mode". But now after 2 years of TLCs from Samsung, Crucial has finally come out with their own "Momentum Cache", I am hoping that it will at least be the same if not faster.

    I see that MX200 is selling for $85 while the MX300 is $70. Also, MX200 was released > a year ago. If the new one is not as good or better, then it should have been BX300 instead of MX300.
