Crucial MX100 SSD 256GB Review

Anvil Storage Benchmark is a software package that I strolled across one day while cruising some reviews. The software is still in BETA and offers it out to you for free during the BETA period. The software has an SSD benchmark that can be configured to test with data from 0Fill to 1Fill. You get read write speeds in MB/s and IOPS. There are other benchmarking options, but we are only concerned with the SSD benchmarking at 0Fill and 100% (1Fill – Incompressible).

Some companies just have a knack for making their way into my life. My home and offices are populated with plenty of Samsung tech; I have a Samsung microwave, LED TV, Soundbar, Galaxy S3, headphones, Color Laser Printer, 2 Samsung Laptops, etc. Well, now Samsung wants to entice me with their 840 PRO Series SSD. Does Samsung's high end SSD have what it takes to unseat our current SSD choice, the OCZ Vector?
