    The new BX300 line of SATA III SSDs by Crucial is currently available in 120/240/480GB capacities and is based on the 4-channel SM2258 NAND flash controller by Silicon Motion (originally developed for use with TLC NAND) which they paired with Micron's 256Gb 32L 3D MLC NAND flash and LPDDR3 modules (512MB for the 480GB variant and 256MB for the other two). Silicon Motion has equipped the SM2258 quad-channel controller with various technologies including NANDXtend (error-correcting with data protection), Static Data Refresh (ensures data integrity), Direct-to-TLC and SLC Caching (algorithms for optimal sustained performance - 16GB of SLC write cache are present in the 480GB variant), global wear leveling (algorithm which evens program/erase count and extends SSD lifespan), DevSleep (device sleep), S.M.A.R.T, TRIM, NCQ, TCG Opal and hardware AES 256bit encryption. Finally Crucial covers the BX300 480GB drive with a limited three-year warranty and reports a write endurance of 160TBW (80TBW for the 240GB and 55TBW for the 120GB variants) with an MTBF of 1.5 million hours. We expect very good results from the BX300 480GB so let's move forward with today’s review.
