Crucial M500 480GB SSD Review

NikkTech
25 February 2014
  • Conclusion: The previous M4 model by Crucial/Micron was launched back in 2011 and although it offered very good read speeds (up to 500MB/s) it did lack the punch needed in write speeds (up to 260MB/s) and 4KB random IOPS performance (read 45k/write 50k) to compete with the top models by other manufacturers so...
  • Pros: - Build Quality, - Very Good Overall Performance, - Features (RAIN & eDrive Support), - 3 Year Warranty, - Available In 960GB, - Price (For Some)
  • Cons: - Bundle

Crucial M500 960GB 2.5-inch Internal SSD

7 February 2014
  • 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.
  • 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

19 December 2013
  • Conclusion: As much as we want the unbelievable performance that we see in PCIe M.2 SSDs, the name of the game today is capacity and the number of e-mails received from people looking for higher capacity SSDs is amazing.

The Crucial/Micron M500 Review (960GB, 480GB, 240GB, 120GB)

AnandTech
22 July 2013
  • Conclusion: For SSDs to become more cost effective they need to implement higher density NAND, which is often at odds with performance, endurance or both. Samsung chose the endurance side of the equation, but kept performance largely intact with the vanilla 840.

  • Summary: When asked at CES about the M500 price points, we were told the 960GB model would hit the $600 price point and the other capacity would scale from there. Although not specifically stated, I took that to mean $300 for the 480GB, $150 for the 240GB and around $75 for the 120GB.

  • Summary: What a difference one-process node makes. However, the Crucial M500 240GB does in fact still suffer from low write speeds, compared to other products on the market. The 240GB model does double the performance offered by the 120GB model, but it's not like Crucial has the only SSD on the market.

  • Summary: We've talked about the new IMFT 20nm flash on a few occasions already. This is the second review we've published with the Crucial M500, the first being the 960GB model. In the highest capacity size the M500 is a very good drive with good read and write performance.

Crucial M500 480GB SSD Review

HardOCP
28 May 2013
  • Summary: Crucial's M500 offers the lowest price per gigabyte for an MLC SSD with enterprise-class features not seen on typical consumer SSD data drives. With new 128Gbit MLC NAND paired with the Marvell 9187 controller the M500 should deliver great performance at a historically low price point.

Crucial M500 480GB SSD Review

14 May 2013
  • Conclusion: On the broad scale, there is quite a substantial gap between solid state drives that offer up massive storage capacities and those that offer blazing performance, making the process of choosing a drive that offers both to a certain extent rather hard.
