Random reads and writes were also quite good, at 30KBps/80KBps on single 4KB files and over 300KBps with 4KB files at a queue depth of 32. It really doesn't get much better with a single drive on the SATA bus. You'll need to switch to a PCIe solution or combine drives in RAID 0 to go any faster.
You can't argue with the MX200's price. It's the most affordable top-shelf SSD out there. However, if you're more about capacity than performance, consider the $400 1TB Crucial BX100 or even Sandisk's 960GB Ultra II, which is available at a steep discount.
Note: The MX200 will also be available in other form factors, such as mSATA and M.2 (SATA), but Crucial was unable to provide any at the time of this writing.
