Crucial MX500 2TB 3D NAND SATA 2.5 Inch Internal SSD - Up to 560MB/s - CT2000MX500SSD1
About this deal
Performance in sequential workloads is easily able to hit the peaks of SATA - CDM showed 546 MB/s read and ATTO topping 526 MB/s. PCMark 10 showed steady improvement over the BX series for the MX500 as a daily driver, but not quite as good as the Barracuda SSD from Seagate. That said, Price/Performance is fantastic for the MX500, taking the top spot in our current charts for all SATA drives tested. Some of the storage capacity is used for formatting and other purposes and is not available for data storage. 1GB equals 1 billion bytes. Not all capacities available at initial launch. The MX500 has been out several years, and while it initially launched with a single 1TB capacity, this all has changed with the lineup now filled out from 250GB to 2TB. Build quality is on par with the best SATA has to offer, and drive endurance is rated at a solid 700TBW or 383GB per day for five years.
With higher performance and a solid price point, the MX500 manages to take top marks in the price/performance chart.Typical I/O performance numbers as measured using IOMeter® with a queue depth of 32 and write cache enabled.
