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...

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....

Crucial M500 480GB SSD Review

 

Crucial's M500 offers the lowest price per gigabyte for an MLC SSD with enterprise-class features not seen on typical consumer SSD data drives. With new 128Gbit MLC NAND paired with the Marvell 9187 controller the M500 should deliver great performance...

The Crucial M500 looks to bring MLC into a price-competitive position with TLC. This has paid dividends with a very low-priced SSD with decent performance. When comparing the price vs. performance of the M500 against the other top-flight SSDs in our...

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.

The Crucial M500 solid-state drive may be your choice for the next upgrade in your build. Find out more about this solid-state drive in our review.

The Crucial M500 solid-state drive is fast, and Crucial has fantastic help and support options

This is a 2.5-inch form factor SSD that does not come with a 3.5-inch mounting kit

Installation may prove tricky, but the Crucial M500 is a fast and reliable solid-state drive.

The Crucial difference between this and the EVO? Pure performance

Very good price ; Good performance ; Temperature control features ; Good RAID 0 performance

Not as fast as the Samsung EVO

Crucial has returned to the top of the SSD pack with the release of the M500. You could read the previous line alone and know that the M500 is the must have SSD for any application, but you really ha...
