Crucial 960GB M500 2.5-inch 7mm Solid State Drive (SSD) SATA III with 9.5mm Adapter RTL




With its speed and high storage capacity, the Crucial 960GB M500 2.5-inch 7mm Solid State Drive is one of the best storage devices for upgrading your computer's performance. This solid state drive provides consistently high read/write speeds as well as the latest data encryption technology, so file access is always quick and secure.

The Crucial M500 solid state drive is among the best in its class largely because of its storage capacity. This SSD provides 960GB of space for storing multitudes of photos, music files, and videos. With this much storage space, you'll also be able to create backups more frequently, so you can be sure that you won't lose your essential files to disk failure. Of course, the Crucial 960GB M500 2.5-inch 7mm Solid State Drive (SSD) also delivers incredibly fast sustained sequential read and write speeds of up to 500MB/s and 400MB/s, respectively. These high read/write rates significantly cut down system boot times, while speeding up file access and data transfer. This Crucial SSD also helps maintain responsiveness even when you're multi-tasking several performance-hungry applications and processes.

In addition to providing industry-leading read/write performance and storage capacity, the Crucial 960GB M500 SSD also protects your data with top-level hardware encryption technology. This security feature ensures that your files are always safe from unauthorized access and corruption. The same security features are available on high-performance SSDs, including the Samsung 256GB 840 Pro Series Solid State Drive.


Crucial M500 SATA 6Gb/s Solid State Drive
Transform your system's performance.


Dramatically faster than a hard drive, the Crucial M500 SSD isn't just a storage upgrade - it's a complete system transformation. Designed to keep your system up to speed with today's multitasking demands that often require instant and simultaneous use of apps, websites, downloads, work files and more, the Crucial M500 delivers nearly instant boot times, powerful data transfer speeds, increased multitasking capability, and rock-solid reliability - all at an affordable price. The Crucial M500 also includes top-level encryption technology to keep your data safe and is available in capacities up to terabyte-class. Built on proven quality, the Crucial M500 SSD has passed hundreds of SSD quality tests and over a thousand hours of prerelease validation testing. Don't settle for anything less.


Product Highlights:

  • Available in capacities of 120GB, 240GB, 480GB, and 960GB
  • Includes top-level hardware encryption technology
  • Advanced controller technology and Micron custom firmware
  • Extensive quality and reliability testing built into every drive
  • Compatible with PC and Mac systems


Ample storage capacity with plenty of choice
- Available in capacities up to terabyte-class, the Crucial M500 SSD provides plenty of storage for your ever-growing collection of photos, videos, music, and important documents. Based on your storage needs, choose between a 120GB, 240GB, 480GB, or 960GB† drive and access your programs and files almost as soon as you click on them. If you prefer to store your data on an external backup drive, in the cloud, or on your home network, opt for a smaller capacity. Or if you'd rather have everything in one place, choose one of our larger sizes. Whichever capacity you choose, our selection ensures that you're able to find a drive that's the right combination of storage, performance, and price.


Consistently fast speeds. No exceptions
- No matter what kind of files youre working with on a Crucial SSD, youll experience high speeds with no drop in performance across different file types. Unlike other SSDs on the market, Crucial SSDs treat all files the same, regardless of whether theyre compressed or uncompressed. While many SSDs on the market achieve faster speeds by using file compression, many of the most common file types cant be compressed, resulting in SSDs that often deliver slower speeds than advertised. This is important because the files most people use every day – videos, mp3s, advanced graphic files and zip files - are compressed files and thus unable to be compressed any further. With a Crucial SSD, the specs we advertise are the same specs youll see in the real world.


Micron Quality
- As a brand of Micron, one of the largest NAND manufacturers in the world, Crucial SSDs are designed and developed in-house with the latest technology. This means four things: hundreds of SSD qualification tests, over a thousand hours of prerelease validation testing, 1.5 billion dollars invested in R&D, and more than 30 years of industry expertise.


Adaptive Thermal Protection
- Greater thermal management enables the Crucial M500 to work with the host computer to dynamically adjust power consumption based on usage demands, which helps address the cooling challenges of ultra-small, thermally constrained systems.


Hardware Data Encryption
- The Crucial M500 SSD offers top-level hardware-based encryption, enabling enhanced data security. Our AES 256-bit hardware encryption engine and TCG Opal 2.0 compliant firmware allow the drive to operate at full speed without the performance loss that's typically found in drives that use software-based encryption technology.

Will this drive fit in a Macbook Pro 2012 (pre Retina) or do I need an adaptor?

Asked by George Monteiro from FL | Nov 05, 2013

Flag as Inappropriate

Best Answer

Yes, this drive will fit perfectly in your non-Retina 2012 model. Although it's smaller than the normal 9.5mm (at 7mm) it is 2.5" wide and with the provided adapter will give you a good tight fit. It's just a great drive overall.

can i install this solid drive as the main hard drive on my mac pro (mid 2010)? Thanks

Asked by Michael Dillon from GA | Sep 06, 2013

Flag as Inappropriate

Best Answer

I have a 15" Macbook Pro (non-retina) and use a 480GB SSD as my main drive. A solid state drive can be installed as the main hard drive for your Mac, as long as it physically fits. It will significantly speed up disk i/o and the whole computer will feel a lot faster.

Great Value SSD, 2013-09-10
By Rick Townsend 
I was looking for a replacement SSD for my 750GB mechanical hard drive. It was either that or upgrade my computer to a faster processor. The SSD sped up my computer significantly. Tasks that were taking a long time as software updates made the software more robust (but more dependent on hard drive calls, I suspect) had slowed my computer to a point where it was routinely slower than desirable. The drive upgrade made a remarkable difference. Replacement was easy after cloning the drive. I could have used Apple's disc utility but ended up instead using Carbon Copy Cloner, which worked flawlessly. This was a great value and a very nice upgrade. Crucial's tech support to get the drive mounted, etc., was also a great experience. They were very responsive.
