Join more and more people who are keeping their family videos, travel photos, music, and important documents on an SSD, and get the near-instant performance and lasting reliability that comes with solid state storage. 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.

    Good Hardware, Poor Cloning Software

    I'm now typing with the MX500 cloned and installed on a refurbished 8-year old laptop, a Lenovo Thinkpad T410. In spite of the laptop's age, it feels like a brand new machine.

    The instructions supplied by Crucial for the cloning operation were more than adequate. However, the ACRONIS software failed twice to transfer my sound hardware to the MX500. I ran ACRONIS once from within Windows 7 and once outside Windows 7 from an ACRONIS Rescue CD. Both times there was no sound hardware transferred to the MX500. From my search I found that all the required drivers were present on the cloned disk but no way to get them re-installed because Windows 7 said I had "No Audio Out Device" and Device Manager didn't even list a Sound Controller line item in the device list. I was prepared to return the MX500 for a refund.

    However, a very helpful rep on the chat line suggested that I either re-install Windows 7 or try a different cloning program, like MACRIUM. Not wanting to go through the hassle of re-installing Windows 7 without install disks -- the Thinkpad is a Lenovo refurbished model with an OEM-installed operating system -- I instead downloaded MACRIUM REFLECT 7 FREE and used it to clone the MX500. Macrium did the trick. Sound card is now working and the MX500 appears to be working well.

    I think Crucial would be well advised to re-think their use of an OEM'd version of ACRONIS. I found it to easy to use but unreliable. They should suggest other alternative cloning/back-up software, like MACRIUM, in addition to ACRONIS.

    Bottom Line: Good hardware but not-so-good cloning software.

    Would I recommend to a friend? Yes on the MX500 itself, No on the cloning software.

    I attempted to install this into my Dell Inspiron 13, 5000 series and since this unit doesn't have but one SATA header, I tried to install with a USB adapter. I followed Crucial instructions and downloaded the software to clone the drive from Crucial site but the SSD couldn't be seen. Tech support sent me a link to an exe that got around that issue, but when I tried to clone, the internal drive was reporting a different sector count than the USB attached SSD.

    I ended up pulling my laptop drive out, and hooking it and the SSD up to SATA connectors on a tower PC I had. I had to download the Crucial software to clone the drive as several others I tried just wouldn't let the SSD boot on the laptop. After several hours I finally got a good load and boot.

    The performance of the SSD is great as compared to the spinning drive that it replaced. I love the quick boot up time of SSD.

    Comments about Crucial MX500 500GB SATA 2.5-inch 7mm (with 9.5mm adapter) Internal SSD:

    windows 10 would not recognize my 500 GB drive no mater what settings i changed in the bios setup on any of my computers. I had too use third party software to make my own partitions and then install windows / programs. not everybody will but a matching SSD too their old hard drive due to cost. Why will Cruial not provide software in their purchase so average people can install their OS and programs without all this drama. cloning software is OK if the drives match but with the price of larger drives its no wonder people use a smaller SSD

    Bought this for my mid-2012 unibody MacBook Pro. It was old and sluggish. But this SSD upgrade has made my old machine feel new again. It's an easy install with lightning fast results. In 2018 SSD is definitely the way to go.

      Comments about Crucial MX500 500GB SATA 2.5-inch 7mm (with 9.5mm adapter) Internal SSD:

      Older Dell Inspiron 560 desktop. Ran ok with original 500gb HDD. Runs MUCH better and faster now. Have installed network cards and adapters and such before. First time with a hard drive replacement. Piece of cake. Used the Acronis software, no problem. Took about an hour to clone and about 5 minutes to install in tower. Only thing, the black metal adapter bracket didn't quite line up with any of the factory Dell holes. No biggie, used a couple nylon zip-ties to secure it to the metal frame. Overall, very pleased. Just ordered two more SSD's for a couple laptops I use for home theater set ups.

          My Pentium based Lenovo 4 struggled to meet the demands of W10 and standard MSOffice apps and web browsing--performance tools showed HD I/O was constantly pegged at 100% and thus thought I would have to scrap the Lenovo and upgrade--the new Crucial SSD has eliminated the bottleneck and I have acceptable performance across the board. A very happy customer!
