The table below contains the comparison units for today's review:
The MX200's sequential read performance follows the same profile as Crucial's M550. The MX200 and M550 share the same controller, so this really doesn't surprise us. In its 1TB form, the MX200 doesn't benefit from an SLC cache layer. Thus, the main difference between both Crucial drives is their flash. One uses 20nm NAND and the other comes with flash manufactured at 16nm.
