†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.Capacity (Unformatted): 240GB

This storage is a perfect replacement for a regular SATA thin disk in a laptop or notebook. It is much faster than a regular disk and does not damage as easily as a disk.
Slapped 2x of them in MSI GS70 for RAID0. Lighting fast, sips power, great performance and reliability.
Have a third in an ATX board as the OS drive, using all four SATA 3 slots on the board for a massive storage array.
Nothing bad about it, but a black PCB would have been nice for the ATX system as it has a case window and all the other PCBs are black.
When it comes to SSDs there are a lot companies and some of their products are doubious. I only use Crucial, Samsung, and intel. Both for my home systems and at work.
Used it for my C: boot drive - windows 7 boots in 15 seconds
Used in a Drobo 5N as the accelerator chip, and it works like a charm fast and does its job. Excellent product and well worth the price I paid for 240GB.
