Crucial m500 (960GB)

 

The Crucial m500 (960GB) internal solid-state drive (SSD) trades some performance for encryption capabilities and a larger pool of redundant flash.

A huge storage pool at an excellent price. Hardware support for cutting-edge encryption standards

Slightly lower performance than alternatives from Samsung and Sandisk

The Crucial m500 (960GB) ($475) is an internal solid-state drive (SSD) that's priced to move and built to fly. It's the first internal SSD we've reviewed that closes in on a 1TB capacity, but after seeing the drive's overall performance, we suspect...

Crucial M500 SSD Giveaway: Holiday 2013

 

I've been a huge fan of SSDs ever since I started looking into them back in 2008. The impact to the overall PC user experience is nothing short of tremendous. Honestly, whenever I use a system without an SSD I end up frustrated at just how slow it...

NO PURCHASE NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN. PURCHASE DOES NOT INCREASE CHANCES OF WINNING.

The Crucial/Micron M500 Review (960GB, 480GB, 240GB, 120GB)

 

This is probably the most excited I've been about any SSD launch in quite a while. At CES this year, Crucial announced its M500 SSD - the world's first to use Micron's new 128Gbit MLC NAND die. Courtesy of the cost savings and density increase...

For SSDs to become more cost effective they need to implement higher density NAND, which is often at odds with performance, endurance or both. Samsung chose the endurance side of the equation, but kept performance largely intact with the vanilla 840....

Sleek design; Excellent incompressible data results; Great value; Massive storage capacity

Not the fastest on the market

Crucial M500 480GB SSD Review

 

The big news surrounding the Crucial M500 during CES this year was the shockingly low price per GB. The price of a 960GB for $599 brings the price per GB down to 63 cents. This is the lowest price on the market, and with Crucial's solid reputation in...

Crucial M500 480GB SSD review

 

Today we have in our labs the latest SSD offering by Crucial, the Crucial M500 series. Announced earlier this year at CES, it is the world's first SSD series to use Micron's new 128Gbit MLC NAND die. The move to 20nm MLC NAND with a larger 128Gbit die...

Overall, a very good value SSD.

Crucial has been in the SSD market for a while now, and has constantly been a key player, not only due to good performance but also competitive pricing. The new Crucial M500 SSD is no different. It is based on a slightly evolved, rock-solid Marvell...

Great pricing, 7.5 mm thin—Ultrabook compatible, Adapter for 9.5 mm drives included, Supports TRIM, 3-year warranty
