Summary: I've been looking forward to trying out the Crucial M500 for a while now. While I have been using a smaller one in a different production machine, there is something about a "terabyte class" SSD that makes most computer enthusiasts hearts beat a bit faster. The 960GB M500 from Crucial does exactly what they say it will do - the biggest question is how long it will last.
Pros: Exceeds rated read and write speeds, 7mm low profile fits in many Ultrabooks and thinner laptops, Excellent compatibility, Decent 3 year warranty, Massive storage (for an SSD), Very affordable for a terabyte-class SSD.
Cons: No desktop drive bracket included, No software bundle included in the box for migration
Conclusion: At the start of the year during CES, the major buzz word of the show as we all know was 4K, but whilst this was a buzz word, in the storage sector there were other goings on the was stirring a whole heap of interest. For many years now we have been watching the solid state drive grow and grow, not only in terms of popularity but also their performance and most importantly capacity.
