Crucial MX100 512GB

For those of you who haven’t made the jump yet, an SSD is well worth considering and the new Crucial drive has a very attractive price. While the new Crucial MX100 512GB SSD drives aren’t at the top of the pack in terms of speed, the current $219 price tag still makes them a very attractive upgrade option. If you’ve been working on a spinning hard drive, almost any SSD drive will make a huge difference in how your desktop and NLE performs. Even a somewhat sluggish system starts to feel snappy with an SSD boot drive and $219 for the Crucial MX100 512GB SSD is a sweet spot in terms of price/performance.

Personally I’m still using all Samsung 840 EVO drives, but if I were building a new system or upgrading and I was trying to save a little money, the Crucial MX100 would probably be a good place to start. SSD drives are finally starting to be affordable.

UPDATE: Looks like you can find it for just $199 on B&H with free shipping right now!
