Review of Linux Compatibility
The Crucial MX100 512GB is an internal 2.5 inch SATA3 solid state disk. The drive has been successfully used under Linux Mint 17 KDE. It worked out of the box under Linux, and has a good performance and excellent price.
Following performance was found during testing:
dd if=/dev/zero of=tempfile bs=1M count=1024 conv=fdatasync,notrunc
showed an average write speed of 475 MB/s.
Clearing of cache by
sudo sh -c "sync&& echo 3 > /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches"
dd if=tempfile of=/dev/null bs=1M count=1024
showed an average read speed of 455 MB/s.
