Crucial C300 SATA  6Gb/s SSD Review

If it's Monday it must be time for PC Mark Vantage. Starting with the HDD Suite score we find the C300 is 33% better than the Corsair Nova. Given how robust the PC Mark testing is at "real world" usage this should mean some incredible transfer rates.

Looking closer at the breakdown of the PC Mark score we find the Crucial C300 living up to its billing. Any time your Mega-Bytes per Second graph requires a 300 on the x-axis you know you're dealing with some serious speed.


Let's finish up with the ATTO disk benchmark which tests the drive using a variety of block sizes. It always follows, even with mechanical drives, that smaller block sizes perform badly and once you reach around the 64 mark the drive gets into its stride.

With the read test we find the results echo those we saw on the previous page with the Crucial C300 redefining what we consider a fast read speed to be.


On the previous page we saw Crystal Disk Mark giving us disappointing write speeds and this is backed up by ATTO. Only on the very low 1 and 8 block size test does the C300 best the Corsair Nova, and otherwise it's fairly comprehensively beaten.
