Crucial BX300 480GB SSD Review


AS SSD Benchmark

AS-SSD (2.0.6485.19676) Benchmark:

We have been running the AS-SSD Benchmark app for over some time now and found that it gives a broad result set. The programmer has worked very hard on this software and continues to make updates often so if you use it, show him some love and send him a donation. There are now three tests that are found within the tool and we’ll show the results from all three of them.

AS SSD – Crucial BX300 480GB:

Benchmark Results: On AS SSD, the Samsung SSD 860 PRO 2TB drive had an overall score of 1,220 points with sequential read speeds of 529 MB/s and 499 MB/s write.

AS SSD Copy – Crucial BX300 480GB:

Benchmark Results: The copy benchmark test results were on par with what one expects from a SATA III SSD with speeds ranging from 475 MB/s in the program and game tests to 546 MB/s in the ISO benchmark. These are impressive results for a budget friendly SATA SSD!

Benchmark Results: We are fans of the AS SSD copy benchmark tests, so we charted the BX300 against six other drives to see how it performs. It actually led in the ISO test cases and had a strong standing in the other two test cases.

AS SSD Compression – Crucial BX300 480GB:

Benchmark Results: For this benchmark chart you would ideally want to see a straight line as you dont want any compression performance loss as the test goes from 0% compressible to 100% compressible data during the benchmark test period. The Crucial BX300 480GB had virtually no dips on the read side, but had a handful when it was writing.
