    Store up to 2TB of data

    Enjoy the efficiency of next-gen Micron ® 3D NAND

    Our cutting-edge components are engineered from start to finish for efficiency. As a result, the Crucial MX500 uses only a minimal amount of power and still delivers a high price-to-performance ratio – without needing a financing plan to pay for it. Experience a faster, cooler, and quieter computer in your home or business. You’ll wonder how you ever put up with a hard drive.

    Upgrade with a drive you can count on

    With thousands of hours of pre-release validation, dozens of SSD qualification tests, and a heritage of award- winning SSDs, the Crucial MX500 has been thoroughly tried, tested, and proven. Secure your most important files on a drive with established dependability and these advanced features.

    1. Hardware-based encryption: Keep personal files and confidential data restricted from hackers and thieves with AES 256-bit encryption that meets all industry standards, including Microsoft ® eDrive, IEEE- 1667, and TCG Opal 2.0.
    2. 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.
    3. 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.
    4. 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.
    5. Built-in durability: 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.

    Install with confidence

    For many people, opening a computer and transferring data seems terrifying. That’s why we’ve made it easy in the step-by-step Crucial SSD Install Guide. Check it out before you buy, then install your own SSD quickly with everything transferred over successfully and hassle-free.

    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. It’s worth it.

    Note: 1TB = 1 billion bytes. Actual useable capacity may vary.

    Extend the Life of an Old Compter

    By Dave

    from Boise, ID

    Staff Reviewer

    Comments about Crucial MX500 250GB SATA 2.5-inch 7mm (with 9.5mm adapter) Internal SSD:

    I bought this part to extend the life of a 2007 Core 2 Duo MacBook Pro that I had recently converted to Ubuntu, but was still had considerable lag. The old spinning disk was noisy and it's utilization was above what would be healthy. The duplicated the image of the old HD onto the Crucial SSD using an external dock and the old MacBook fired right up after the SSD was installed. I am now using the MacBook as a back up computer and purchasing the Crucial SSD was a good investment for the price point and ease of installation.

    SSD Upgrade for a 6 year old Dell Latitude E5530 Laptop

    By Glenn the Engineer

    from Marblehead, OH

    Verified Reviewer

    Comments about Crucial MX500 250GB SATA 2.5-inch 7mm (with 9.5mm adapter) Internal SSD:

    Installation of the MX500 went just as expected. The upgrade to Win 10 and new software had really slowed startup/ shutdown and most operations, as the old disc tried to keep up. This is not my primary PC so I lived with it. Performance improvements with the new SSD have been dramatic. I do no gaming on this PC, so the older processor and graphics are not an issue. I will be able to delay indefinitely the purchase of a new laptop.

    Cons

      Best Uses

        Comments about Crucial MX500 250GB SATA 2.5-inch 7mm (with 9.5mm adapter) Internal SSD:

        I have a Mid-2010 MacBook Pro that was just not keeping up anymore. It would take five minutes or more for it to be fully functional after start up. I replaced the original HDD for the Crucial MX500; I wish I had done this before; It seems as if I have a totally different machine now. This upgrade will give a few more years before I definitely have to get a new one.

        A Peoduct That Stands Up To Its Claims

        By Ke2yk

        from Long Island NY

        Verified Reviewer

        Comments about Crucial MX500 250GB SATA 2.5-inch 7mm (with 9.5mm adapter) Internal SSD:

        Bought the SSD drive to replace the 5200 rpm drive in my Lenovo T410. Prior to installing the SSD drive upon boot task manager indicated 100% disk usage for approximately 5 minutes. The SSD drive has truly lived up to its claim when measuring thr results in task manager. Now the indication is virtually no disk latency and 100% cpu utilization for a moment or two during windows 10 boot up. As far as cons go, I really can't find anything to complain about. The packaging, software tools and directions were all spot on.
