M500 SATA 6Gb/s Solid State Drive
Transform your system’s performance.
New interfaces and multitasking demands require more from your system than perhaps ever
before. From connecting instantly with friends and accessing apps, websites, and playlists online,
to simultaneously streaming videos and downloading ﬁles, your computer is faced with an entirely
new set of performance expectations that a hard drive struggles to meet. That’s where the Crucial
M500 SSD comes in. With data transfer speeds that are radically faster than a hard drive, the Crucial
M500 SSD isn’t just a storage upgrade - it’s a complete system transformation. From its nearly
instantaneous boot times, powerful data transfer speeds, increased multitasking capability, and rock-
solid reliability, the Crucial M500 delivers dramatic performance gains – all at an aordable price.
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. If you prefer to store your data on an external backup drive, in
the cloud, or on your home network, opt for a smaller capacity. Or if you’d rather have everything
in one place, choose one of our larger sizes. Whichever capacity you choose, our selection ensures
that you’re able to ﬁnd a drive that’s the right combination of storage, performance, and price.
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 dierent 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.
Crucial SSDs. Performance you can trust.
Crucial is a brand of Micron, one of the largest NAND manufacturers in the world, and we design
and develop our SSDs in-house using state-of-the-art technology. This means four things: hundreds
of SSD qualiﬁcation tests, over a thousand hours of prerelease validation testing, 1.5 billion dollars
invested in R&D, and more than 30 years of industry expertise. With our multi-billion dollar
commitment to NAND development, our record of patent and process innovation, and our award-
winning customer support team, we’re dedicated to quality. For you, that means your SSD has been
designed with cutting-edge technology and it’s been rigorously tested and approved. Don’t settle
for anything less.
