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.

I feel like I have a new computer because it boots super fast and for a Mac, very easy to install.
Installed the SSD and it is fast again. boot up when from over 2 minutes to 30 seconds. apps and programs load nearly instantaneously.
Once the data was transferred the computer booted up much faster because the solid state drive is much faster.
Fast and smooth for over 9 months now. Programs open like lightning, drive is silent, and the frame fit perfectly where my older standard-sized SATA had been. Read morePublished 36 minutes ago by Triple One
Used this product to replace an aging harddrive on a Macbook 2,1. The greatest improve in speed that I have ever seen!Published 8 hours ago by Craig McIntosh
My only complaint is that my computer starts up so fast now that I don't have time to make hot pockets.Published 11 hours ago by David Horning
The drive didn't come "activated", so moving my OS on to it was a bit of a hassle; aside from that it's been great. Boot up time is mere seconds. quiet. Read morePublished 16 hours ago by HS Prefect
