I bought the MX300 1 TB M.2 back in Jan of this year, and have had great success with the drive. The storage software has been nice keeping the firmware and SSD running at max. I was wondering what kind of speeds everyone else is getting with their MX300 M.2. I used the AS SSD Benchmarker and Disk Mark for my testing.

Nice! What caching software are you using? Or is that just using Momentum?

Crucial Software 10% OP Overprovision
ASUS ROG Ram Cache 4 GB on the SSD
Have been enjoying the speed. The Ram Cache only seems to work on Strix and ROG motherboards.

Tried this with a samsung 850 Pro and didn't even come close to these results so I am wondering why it worked with the MX300, but not the 850 Pro.

Momentum is a RAM cache that you can turn on/off with Crucial Storage Executive tool and it works with Crucial drives only.

Sorry mofus I don't have the computer anymore, it is a system i custom built for a family member and I was just updating and testing the speeds. Next time I am over there I will get you those results and post back.
