Crucial 500GB MX500 2.5″ Internal SATA SSD
Crucial 500GB MX500 2.5″ Internal SATA SSD is compatible with systems sporting a SATA III interface and an available 2.5″ / 7mm drive bay and delivers sequential reads of up to 560 MB/s and sequential write speeds of up to 510 MB/s to offer significantly faster boot times and faster access to your data than a traditional spinning hard drive. Crucial MX500 is inexpensive and considerably faster than any spinning hard disk, it has a three-year warranty, and it supports full-disk encryption.
Crucial MX500 is one of the best-value SATA drives available for upgrading the storage in a mainstream PC od laptop computer. It fits in the system’s 2.5″ drive bay and comes with a 7 to 9.5mm spacer for compatibility with bigger bays. Crucial has equipped the MX500 SSD with a SATA Interface, Silicon Motion SM2258 controller, and Micron 3D TLC NAND Flash technology to deliver up to 560 MB/s sequential reads and 510 MB/s sequential writes
The MX500 is the first Crucial drive based on Micron’s 64-layer 3D TLC NAND, and is the second generation of Crucial’s mainstream MX series to use TLC NAND instead of MLC NAND. The MX500 breaks from previous MX generations by using Silicon Motion’s SM2258 controller instead of a Marvell controller, but all the usual features of the MX series are still present. This includes both TCG Opal encryption support and Crucial’s partial power loss protection, features which are uncommon on mainstream or budget consumer SSDs. As usual for Crucial, the SLC write cache is dynamically sized based on how full the drive is.
The MX500 has a lot to offer if you are looking for a SATA SSD for your next upgrade. It is a reliable and fast SSD powered by a trusted brand. It delivers the best speed for boot-ups, shutdowns, and data transfer speeds. It makes your computer system like a brand new device and you will appreciate the speed and endurance of this flawless SSD.
The Crucial MX500 SSD offers an easy setup and comes with Acronis True Image software, which provides an easy-to-use backup solution.

Micron® quality – a higher level of reliability.
As a brand of Micron, one of the largest flash storage manufacturers in the world, the Crucial MX500 is backed by the same quality and engineering innovation that has produced some of the world’s most advanced memory and storage technologies for more than 35 years. Split-second speeds, lasting reliability, and a decades-long legacy – upgrading with the Crucial MX500 gives you the best combination of quality, performance, and security.
Integrated Power Loss Immunity
Avoid unintended data loss when the power unexpectedly goes out. This built-in feature of our new NAND protects your data swiftly and efficiently, so if your system suddenly shuts down, you keep all your saved work.
Exclusive Data Defense
Prevent your photos, music, videos, and other files from becoming corrupted and unusable with layers of error correction and adaptive read technology
Redundant Array of Independent NAND
Protect your data at the component level with an SSD that automatically provides parity protection for your data. This high-end feature works similarly to how RAID is used with multiple hard drives and maintains the integrity of your data, especially for intense users.
Because SSDs don’t use moving parts that wear out over time (unlike hard drives), your files are less susceptible to a crash. SSDs are better equipped to survive physical trauma, like getting dropped, because they don’t rely on mechanical parts.
