Micron 5100 ECO and MAX SSD Review

If you are looking for high-capacity, affordable datacenter storage, make sure you read HotHardware's review of the Micron 5100 ECO and MAX SSDs.  

Today, we have two Micron 5100 series drives gracing our testbench, a 960GB 5100 MAX and a spacious 1920GB 5100 ECO. These can both be considered the economical cousins of Micron’s 9100 MAX NVMe speed demon we reviewed last year. The 9100 MAX costs north of $1.00 per GB, however, while the 5100 ECO and MAX register at around $0.45 and $0.59 per GB, respectively.
