Crucial Technology M500 240GB SATA 6Gb/s Internal Solid State Drive, 500MB/s Sequential Read & 200MB/s Sequential Write
What's Included With This Item:
- 3 Year Warranty
The Crucial M500 240GB SATA 6Gb/s Internal Solid State Drive is a new SSD form factor that is barely the size of a stick of chewing gum. Designed for ultra-thin notebook form factors, the M500 delivers strong performance, greatly reduces power consumption and provides exceptional data protection. Built using Micron's 20nm NAND Flash-one of the most cost effective NAND devices in the industry-the M500 provides high quality and reliability.
Designed to be consistently fast with compressed and uncompressed file types and don't rely on special file compression to achieve higher advertised read/write speeds
The slim M.2 form factor and solid-state design provide shock protection, durability and robust data protection
M.2 form factor represents the very latest in SSD design. It's smaller, lighter and uses less power
Designed and Built by Micron
Crucial SSDs are designed completely in-house. From component design to fabrication to the finished package device, their stringent quality requirements, significant investments in SSD test equipment and advanced NAND management algorithms deliver superb levels of reliability, quality and performance.
Adaptive Thermal Protection
It has built-in device sleep and adaptive thermal throttling features, which cuts the drive's workload and power consumption if it gets hotter than 65deg.C. This is an important feature in fan-less devices such as tablet computers.
