Crucial has announced the availability of its next-gen BX500 SSD.
Designed to provide everyday computing users with a fast and reliable storage upgrade, the new SSD is 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. The BX500 has no moving parts, making it a cooler, quieter, and more reliable alternative to a hard drive. Furthermore, because it uses less power than a hard drive, laptop battery life is extended.
The BX500’s features include:
– Data loss protection via the Multistep Data Integrity Algorithm.
– Protection from overheating via Adaptive Thermal Monitoring tools.
– 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.”
