1 GB = 1 billion bytes. Actual usable capacity may vary.
In today’s workplace, computers are no
longer just a type of office equipment.
They’re the way in which we communicate,
connect, and drive business. How computers
perform is often essential to how a business
performs. Dramatically faster than a hard
drive, the Crucial® M500 isn't just a storage
upgrade - it's a complete transformation for
the systems in your network. From nearly
instantaneous boot times, powerful data
transfer speeds, increased multitasking
capability, and rock-solid reliability, the
Crucial M500 is the most economical way to
upgrade your aging PCs and enable your

Micron® Quality
Crucial is a brand of Micron and our SSDs are designed and developed
in-house by one of the largest NAND manufacturers in the world. 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.
Adaptive Thermal Protection
Greater thermal management enables the Crucial M500 to work with
the host computer to dynamically adjust power consumption based on
usage demands, which helps address the cooling challenges of ultrasmall, thermally constrained systems.
Hardware Data Encryption
The Crucial M500 SSD offers top-level hardware-based encryption,
enabling enhanced data security. Our AES 256-bit hardware encryption
engine and TCG Opal 2.0 compliant firmware allow the drive to operate
at full speed without the performance loss that’s typically found in
drives that use software-based encryption technology.
Three Year Limited Warranty
From prerelease validation testing to ensure that our SSDs work with
the broadest range of chipsets, motherboards, and operating systems to
more than a thousand hours of endurance testing, our drives are tested
for reliability from start to finish. We proudly offer a three-year limited
warranty and award-winning tech support.
