Crucial BX300 480GB SSD review

2. Unboxing, software

The Crucial SSD packaging hasn't changed much over the last several years. The package doesn't list any performance data. and it just lists the warranty and the accessory package.

The overall design is also similar to Crucial's other SSDs. The BX300 features the industry standard 2.5-inch design with a 7mm Z-height.

Under the hood, we found a half-length circuit board with the components configured in a tight arrangement. Crucial populates the 480GB's eight NAND pads with packages. The board only has one pad for a DRAM package, and that means that we should not expect seeing the BX300 come to market in higher capacities.

The Crucial BX300 includes the company's special Storage Executive SSD management software. The software works with Crucial SSDs only. It's also the only way to enable Crucial's Momentum Cache DRAM caching feature. The feature reduces flash wear by using a portion of the system memory to absorb incoming random write data. The software then flushes the data to the SSD as a less-destructive sequential transfer. The software also uses system memory to cache frequently-accessed data, which increases read performance.

Crucial also includes a code for Acronis True Image HD. You can use this software to clone your existing data to a new drive.
