Micron M500 SSD
Built using Micron 20nm MLC NAND Flash and advanced host controller, the M500 delivers radically faster transfer speed than a hard drive. You'll experience ultra-fast system boot-up/shut down, nearly instantaneous apps launch and responsive multi-tasking—all at a price that will make you smile. With no moving parts, the SSD is noiseless, energy-efficient, and vibration-resistant thus enabling better protection. The Crucial M500 SSD isn’t just a storage upgrade. It’s a complete transformation of your PC.
Ample storage capacity with plenty of choice.
Available in capacities up to terabyte-class, the Crucial M500 SSD provides plenty of storage for your ever-growing collection of photos, videos, music, and important documents. Based on your storage needs, choose between a 120GB, 240GB, 480GB, or 960GB drive and access your programs and files almost as soon as you click on them.
Consistently fast speeds. No exceptions.
No matter what kind of files you’re working with on a Crucial SSD, you’ll experience high speeds with no drop in performance across different file types. Unlike other SSDs on the market, Crucial SSDs treat all files the same, regardless of whether they’re compressed or uncompressed. While many SSDs on the market achieve faster speeds by using file compression, many of the most common file types can’t be compressed, resulting in SSDs that often deliver slower speeds than advertised. This is important because the files most people use every day—videos, mp3s, advanced graphic files and zip files—are compressed files and thus unable to be compressed any further. With a Crucial SSD, the specs we advertise are the same specs you’ll see in the real world.
