Join more and more people who are keeping their family videos, travel photos, music, and important documents on a solid state drive, and get the near-instant performance and lasting reliability that comes with solid state storage. Upgrade with the Crucial MX500 Solid State Drive, a drive built on quality, speed, and security that’s all backed by helpful service and support. Even if you’ve never installed a solid state drive, don’t sweat it – Crucial's step-by-step guide walks you through the process to make installation easy.
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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
