†1 GB = 1 billion bytes. Actual usable capacity may vary.

Micron® Quality - As a brand of Micron, one of the largest NAND manufacturers in the world, Crucial SSDs are designed and developed in-house with the latest 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.

Adaptive Thermal Protection - Greater thermal management enables the Crucial M500 to work with the host computer to dynamically adjust power consumption based on usage demands, which helps address the cooling challenges of ultra-small, thermally constrained systems.

Hardware Data Encryption - The Crucial M500 SSD offers top-level hardware-based encryption, enabling enhanced data security. Our AES 256-bit hardware encryption engine and TCG Opal 2.0 compliant firmware allow the drive to operate at full speed without the performance loss that’s typically found in drives that use software-based encryption technology.

Three Year Limited Warranty - From prerelease validation testing to ensure that our SSDs work with the broadest range of chipsets, motherboards, and operating systems to more than a thousand hours of endurance testing, our drives are tested for reliability from start to finish. We proudly offer a three-year limited warranty and award-winning tech support.

      Life long PC owner (45yrs old) that switched to a Mac in 2013. My first Mac entry was a 2010 Macbook Pro. Being an Apple guy (iPhones, iPads, iPods, Apple TV, time capsule) I knew I loved the look, form and function of a Mac but wasn't quite ready to buy a brand new Macbook Pro (cost) so I went with upgrading my ram and jumping on a new SSD.

      I am not remotely close to a tech guy, can't tell you how big a gigabyte is or what RAM actually stands for but I was able to install this SSD with ease. I even backed up my old hard drive and cloned it over to this new SSD without a single issue. Something I am very proud of by the way! My computer was already able to handle more apps at the same time when I upgraded my RAM but I still wanted more speed. Being a first year college student, speed is everything to me on a computer, overtime, a second here, a minute there, adds up, and I have improved the overall function of my 2010 MacBook pro with this simple upgrade.

      My boot up time, time switching between tasks, and overall use is now faster and I am happy about this SSD upgrade and would do it again if I had to. I wish they were a little cheaper because I would have gotten a bigger one. My original hard drive was bigger than this SSD so I had to reduce the storage of the original to be able to clone it over to this SSD. So, if you are thinking about doing this upgrade I would say do it. I would now put my 2010 Macbook Pro up against any 2014 Macbook Pro and feel confident. By the way, I have 16GB of RAM in it as well, something some other models Mac can't even do ha ha!

      Website claims it to be compatible for Dell Inspiron 11 3000 series, but it is not. Cloned via USB enclosure with no problem, but computer would not boot up once installed....BIOS would not detect the hard drive. Must have spent 30 hours over several days trying numerous processes to resolve, but nothing worked. Tech support could not resolve either. Returned a brand new unit only to be replaced with a refurb....not cool. Could understand if it was a year or 2 old, but not virtually brand new. I'm sure it's a fluke that it would not to work with with my computer, so still recommending and giving 2 stars because customer service did the right thing and sent me a new unit so that I could recoup some of my costs.

                    I used it for 6 months and it failed. Tech guy was really great and actually the sales woman was awesome as well to replace it. It's been a week and the order to replace it is still stuck in "processing". I wouldn't have noticed if I hadn't actually double checked it. Now it's been a week, they haven't even sent out the replacement, and have given me no notice that there might be an issue. I needed this hard drive ASAP, didn't know that Crucial's lack of customer service would be the hold up.

No other company makes upgrading your memory easier than Crucial with a scanner that tests and shows you what you have and options for upgrade delivered to your door, THAT WORK! When I needed an SSD drive, this was my first choice for the reasons noted above.
