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.

    Bought this to upgrade a Mid 2011 iMac 21.5". Also bought disk carrier as advised. The connectors in the carrier just did not work so had to modify it - i.e. remove the connector and use the carrier purely as a box to hold the disk! That was disappointing.
    Replacing the disk does involve taking the screen off your iMac - Google it and follow the instructions and be careful. I had to do it 3 times due to the disk carrier issue!
    I used Carbon Copy Cloner (free download) - really easy and it took 5.5hrs to clone the 500GB drive (85% full) to the SSD via the USB cable. kick it off and go out!
    **Beware ** Changing from an Apple disk to an SSD will cause your fans to run at 100% after the upgrade. Looks like this is a known issue as the SSD drive does not have the temp sensor info that an Apple disk has.
    You can fix it really easily using SSD Fan Control - a software product to override the default of 100% fan speed.
    The speed, as you would expect from an SSD, is epic and definatley worth the money. I will be upgrading my other iMac with an SSD to prolong their life. Just beware of the above!

    Replaced an HDD in my mid-2009 Macbook Pro running El Capitan with this SSD. Speed improvement is phenomenal, like having a completely different machine.
    Unfortunately my mac freezes every so often, especially after it has gone to sleep mode. Problem seems to be improving over time

    Amazing upgrade

    By Hatch

    from Berkshire

    Verified Reviewer

    Pros

    • Fast
    • Guide to clone original HD online
    • Large
    • Relatively easy to install

    Cons

    • Online guide was not quite accurate for my mac

    Best Uses

    • Internal SSD

    I installed the SSD as an upgrade to my stock 500GB spinning disk HD on my Mid 2010 15inch Macbook Pro (2.66 GHz Intel Core i7). Aside from a few small differences from the online guide regarding accessing the recovery drive to clone my HD the process of transferring and installing the new SSD went smoothly for a first-timer.

    The SSD itself has considerably boosted the performance of my Macbook, especially for the audio engineering that I do with it (high quality multi-track audio recording and processing). The price of the SSD from crucial was fantastic, well worth the money!

      By Mick

      Verified Reviewer

      Pros

      • Super fast

      Cons

      • None so far

      Best Uses

        Bought one of these to try and improve my flagging laptop. It took about an hour to clone the old drive and install the SSD into my laptop. Turned it on and the performnce is phenomenal. 15 seconds to fully boot up that would previously take 4 - 5 minutes. And when I use the laptop it simply flies. This has got to be the best upgrade you could ever make.
