    It's worth it.

Join more and more people who are keeping their family videos, travel photos, music, and important documents on an SSD, and get the near-instant performance and lasting reliability that comes with solid state storage. 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.

    My son's hard drive on his Macbook Pro crashed. The only replacement offered by Apple (at the store) was a SATA drive. This SSD drive was the same size and slightly less cost than the SATA drive, because Apple was also going to install it. One word of warning, you need to purchase a hard drive that is compatible with the components of your computer and Apple is constantly changing them. It was so easy to purchase the correct hard drive on Crucial. Once Apple confirmed the build (Macbook Pro 13, 2012) was able to select it from the menu. We installed the hard drive ourselves (how to video on YouTube) , then had Apple install the OS, and luckily we had backupped just a week before it crashed. That is the one takeaway - back up your hard drive at least monthly if not weekly to an external drive - they are so cheap now.

    The computer is so much faster with this SSD drive. My son composes music and he tells me it takes 5 seconds to write something to the drive that previously took over a minute. So all you people with Macbook Pros with SATA drives have to consider upgrading to this SSD drive.

    I attempted to install this into my Dell Inspiron 13, 5000 series and since this unit doesn't have but one SATA header, I tried to install with a USB adapter. I followed Crucial instructions and downloaded the software to clone the drive from Crucial site but the SSD couldn't be seen. Tech support sent me a link to an exe that got around that issue, but when I tried to clone, the internal drive was reporting a different sector count than the USB attached SSD.

    I ended up pulling my laptop drive out, and hooking it and the SSD up to SATA connectors on a tower PC I had. I had to download the Crucial software to clone the drive as several others I tried just wouldn't let the SSD boot on the laptop. After several hours I finally got a good load and boot.

    The performance of the SSD is great as compared to the spinning drive that it replaced. I love the quick boot up time of SSD.

    A superb upgrade for my 9-year old Dell Studio XPS 1640

    By none

    from Ottawa, Canada

    Comments about Crucial MX500 500GB SATA 2.5-inch 7mm (with 9.5mm adapter) Internal SSD:

    Only one problem - the Dell would not recognize the SSD and/or USB-to-SATA cable when plugged into the 'enhanced USB port', or whatever Dell called it, on the right side of the computer. After a couple of hours of struggling to get the computer to recognize, I switched USB ports and it worked beautifully immediately.

    The Acronis True Image software did a great job of cloning my hard drive (C:) and it worked immediately after installation. A 'completed' message would have been nice, when the cloning was done, but perhaps I missed it.

    Overall, excellent.

        This is the third time that I used Crucial SSD drives to replace a OEM hard drive. This time I had no issues because I knew to turn off bitlocker before trying to clone. I used the Acronis cloning disk and the SATA to USB adapter.

        Comments about Crucial MX500 500GB SATA 2.5-inch 7mm (with 9.5mm adapter) Internal SSD:

        That is the difference the new hard drive made to my MacBook 2010 13" Laptop, with the new SSD hard drive. I had never changed a drive before but, with the help of the Crucial people and Youtube, we got it done. My only suggestion is for Crucial to suggest the size of the screwdrivers required. I had to go to an electronics store and use their tools.

        Regardless, I am very happy with this purchase. Saved me from buying a refurb or new.

        It just works! After accidentally purchasing a too small 250GB SSD, which wouldn't accommodate the 'HP Tools' partition of my HP Pavilion, I right-sized up to 500GB and the transfer went flawlessly! Crucial's transfer kit is awesome too! Great to have a 'new' quicker more efficient laptop!

        Comments about Crucial MX500 500GB SATA 2.5-inch 7mm (with 9.5mm adapter) Internal SSD:

        I had issues getting my computer to recognize the new drive when attempting to clone to it. I had to try two USB to SATA connectors, the second I got by disassembling a portable hard drive. (The first worked on conventional hard drives, but not this one.) Then I had to format the new drive, but I still got a software error telling me I didn't have a Crucial product installed. Eventually I found a forum where someone had posted a technical solution which involved downloading and running a patch like program multiple times. But in the end, the great performance and helpful on-line selection program leads to a 5-Star review.
