With data transfer speeds that are radically faster than a hard drive, the Crucial M500 solid state drive 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 rocksolid reliability, the Crucial M500 delivers dramatic performance gains – all at an affordable price.
It provides plenty of storage for your ever-growing collection of photos, videos, music, and important documents. Based on your storage needs, you can access your programs and files almost as soon as you click on them. No matter what kind of files you’re working with on a Crucial solid state drive, you’ll experience high speeds with no drop in performance across different file types. Unlike other solid state drives on the market, Crucial driuves treat all files the same, regardless of whether they’re compressed or uncompressed. While many solid state drives on the market achieve faster speeds by using file compression, many of the most common file types can’t be compressed, resulting in drives 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 solid state drive, the specs advertised are the same specs you’ll see in the real world.
