For consumers | 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 speeds dramatically 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 affordable price.
For businesses | Secure your data. Protect your customers’ privacy.
Your data is your competitive advantage. Whether it’s the inside information on
your latest product or your customers’ credit card numbers, information in the
wrong hands has the potential to devastate your business. The best strategy for
protecting your sensitive data is to implement a defense, one that includes
top-level hardware-based encryption. The Crucial M500 SSD is a self-encrypting
drive (SED) based on the rigorous standards established by the TCG Opal
specification. Combined with applications like Microsoft® BitLocker or Wave®
Systems’ EMBASSY® Trust suite, our AES 256-bit hardware encryption engine
(that’s integrated into the controller of the Crucial M500) allows the drive to
operate at full speed without the performance loss that’s typically associated
with non-SED drives using software-based encryption technology.
For all users | 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 different 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.
