Final Thoughts

The Lexar NQ100 SSD is small and lightweight and is very easy to fit into a PC or laptop, or use it as an external drive if you so wish.

It’s quiet (there are no moving parts which makes it quiet) and its very fast too with read speeds up to 550 MB/s.

My only criticism (and that’s a strong word) is that the size of this NQ100 SSD we got in for review is 240GB which is very small, so it’s not going to be big enough to be your main drive on a laptop or computer, however at the price it’s really great for an additional drive. If you want to replace your main drive then go for the largest capacity – you won’t be disappointed.

The Lexar NQ100 2.5” SATA III (6Gb/s) SSD is available now priced at around £32 for the 240GB version which is incredibly good value.
