Crucial 480GB M500 SATA M.2 2280 Solid State Drive Product Description

What’s an M.2 SSD and why does it matter?

As systems and devices become increasingly space constrained, demand is increasing for smaller SSDs. Enter the M.2 form factor that’s designed for ultrabooks and tablets. Unlike mSATA, M.2 allows NAND components to be fitted to either side of the PCB, enabling significantly larger capacities in a smaller form factor. The M.2 standard also moves beyond the space and design limitations of the mSATA single lane I/O interface, while offering support for both SATA and PCIe configurations.

Micron® Quality

Crucial is a brand of Micron and our SSDs are designed and developed in-house by one of the largest NAND manufacturers in the world. 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.
