Looking through the benchmarks, at times our setups do become a bit wobbly, especially the older C300 one. For the most part, though, we can see performance is extremely strong on the new m4 setup with some of the best gains being shown under HD...-

Over 300 MBps in sequential read mode is really something! However, to reach speeds like this you'll need a very recent computer with a SATA-3 interface. For the rest, the C300 is definitely at the higher end of the SSDs we've tested, but it...100

Today we have in our labs a Crucial RealSSD C300 1.8" SATA solid-state drive. Crucial has shrunk the C300 series into a 1.8" format, especially designed for small notebooks that support 1.8" storage devices. Judging from the results we have already...-

It is inevitable that the Crucial RealSSD C300 will be directly compared to SandForce SF-1200 based SSDs. The 120GB/128GB capacity market is very competitive. When the Crucial RealSSD C300 256GB SSD launched early this year, it was without doubt the...100

Crucial's RealSSD C300 shows impressive real-life performance in both SATA-II and SATA 6 Gb/s mode. When running on a SATA-II controller it is able to surpass most of the Sandforce based drives, in 6 Gb/s mode it even manages to be the fastest SSD...91

The Crucial RealSSD C300 relies heavily on its fast SATA 6.0Gbps interface. Without the fast data-rate the SSD has a hard time keeping up with other competing drives. In most of our real-world traces the difference between the two interfaces...-

The C300 128GB rounds out the C300-series nicely, offering an extra helping of write performance above that of the comparatively sluggish 64GB model, which caps out at around 75MB/sec. Read speeds using a SATA 6Gbps controller are predictably superb,...80
