Upgrade with the Crucial MX500 SSD, a drive built on quality, speed, and security that’s all backed by helpful service and support. Even if you’ve never installed an SSD, don’t sweat it – our step-by-step guide walks you through the process to make installation easy. It’s worth it.

    Fly through everything you do
    Start your system in seconds, load files almost instantly, and accelerate the most demanding applications with the Crucial MX500. Our Dynamic Write Acceleration technology uses an adaptable pool of high-speed, single- level cell flash memory to generate blistering speeds.

    Store up to 2TB of data
    Save massive amounts of photos, music, and videos comfortably and securely. With fast access to your media, creations, and designs, you’re ready to share at the speed of your life.

    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.

    About 3 years ago I ordered a new SSD for my Laptop from Crucial. Everything went great and I was totally satisfied. I recently bought another one for a new Laptop and I was somewhat disappointed. Not so much with the products themselves, but the buying experience.

    I ordered a new drive and it was listed under my Dell model. But I was not informed that I would need a mounting bracket and a cable. I figured they would have told me I needed something else as I did the system scan and all. Turns out I had a M.2 drive in my laptop and I ordered a 2.5. They don't even sell the cable or bracket. I had to place another order from another vendor to get the job done. Also, they never prompted me that I would need a conversion kit. Luckily the old one I had worked.

    My point being, if anyone is listening, the first buying experience i remember being as great. I received everything in one shot. This was a very frustrating experience. I should have been prompted of the format difference in the drives and that I would need a conversion kit. This time I didn't even think about looking at other vendors since my last experience was so good. Next time I will look around.

    Seriously fast upgrade for my PS4

    By Heretic

    Comments about Crucial MX500 1TB SATA 2.5-inch 7mm (with 9.5mm adapter) Internal SSD:

    I simply was tired of the ridiculous load times for Battlefront 2 and the fact that my 500GB factory drive was full so I decided to bite the bullet and upgrade my PS4. Man what a difference that made. I now am one of the first in the game! The speed in which every game loads is noticeably faster and I spend less time waiting. I am glad I made the jump and it was worth it!

    I upgraded my Windows 7 Toshiba Satellite Laptop, i3 Intel processor to Windows 10 AND the 1TB SSD from Crucial.

    WOW, WOW, WOW... this computer starts up and shuts down faster than my wife's Windows 10 Toshiba Tecra Laptop, i7 Intel 6th gen processor.

    Great upgrade, do it!

    Comments about Crucial MX500 1TB SATA 2.5-inch 7mm (with 9.5mm adapter) Internal SSD:

    Installed the SSD a week ago. Customer service by phone was great and over two phone calls answered all of my questions. Found the on line ordering somewhat clunky. Although I was finally able to order it. The installation went extremely easy. The Acronis software was easy to use. It quickly backed up the old hard drive and cloned the new SSD. On-line videos of installation were very helpful.
    Extremely happy with the installed SSD hard drive.

    Comments about Crucial MX500 1TB SATA 2.5-inch 7mm (with 9.5mm adapter) Internal SSD:

    This is my first entry into the world of SSD storage and I must say I couldn't be happier. Product was super easy to install although I did not use the included software because I have Paragon Drive Copy. Just remember to order the 3.5 inch adapter bracket if installing in a desktop computer. I have not purchased this product as well as memory from Crucial and have never been disappointed.

        Super easy to install. My 17in Mac Book Pro - mid 2010 model - has been a paper weight the past 2 + years. It was basically unusable due to how slow it was. Decided to swap out the HDD to this SSD - and wow - amazing is all I can say. Faster than ever - feels like a modern day laptop once again - totally surprised how my laptop feels now ..

        My old hard drive we getting a little noisy, so I decided to get an SSD drive. The Crucial Drive arrived in a few days. It was super easy to clone the drive. FYI, you'll need a SATA to USB cable. Installation took a few minutes and when I fired up the computer, it was amazing!

        All good things come to an end, like hard drives that are on the road a few hundred days of the year. Got this as a replacement drive. This thing is fast! Looks like I don't need to replace my machine after all. Install was EZ. Instructions and tips made it a short process. I was back on my machine and installing a new OS in less than an hour!
