Crucial launches BX500 SSD

Crucial has launched its new BX500 SSD, available in a 2.5-inch form factor and 120GB, 240GB and 480GB capacities. 

With sequential read/write speeds up to 540/500 MB/s, the new BX500 enables faster system boot up, faster file loads, and overall improved system responsiveness, according to Crucial. 

The Crucial SSD Install Guide provides steps and videos, and the Acorns True Image HD software helps to migrate data quickly and easily.

The Crucial Storage Executive software tool allows users to see how much storage has been used, download the latest firmware and improve drive performance. Additionally, the BX500 features data loss protection via the Multistep Data Integrity Algorithm, protection from overheating via Adaptive Thermal Monitoring Tools and faster writes via Dynamic Write Acceleration Technology

“It’s time for computer users to make the transition from hard drives to solid state technology,” said Teresa Kelley, VP & GM, Micron Consumer Products Group.

“SSD technology is becoming more mainstream than ever, and for those who are ready to make the switch to solid state, the Crucial BX500 offers performance and reliability at a competitive price from a brand consumers have grown to trust.”

The Crucial BX500 SSD is available now, backed by a three year limited warranty.
