Introduction

We’ve said for quite some time that the biggest performance increase you’ll see in a system upgrade these days it moving to a Solid State Drive. The improvements of an SSD, in our opinion, are nothing short of astounding. So scintillating is the difference that you’ll wonder how you ever survived without one.

So it comes as no surprise there are increasingly more options available from various manufacturers to address various needs. Controller tech, speeds, and storage sizes are the golden trifecta of SSD success. And today we’re looking at the Crucial M500 960GB drive that is poised to address all three.

With a massive storage capacity to suit those who don’t want to compromise, the customized Marvell controller inside promises speeds up to 500MB/s Read and 400MB/s Write, and comes with an attractive price tag of $550. That appears to be a solid combination of speed, capacity, and price, so let’s take a closer look at, the Crucial M500 960GB and see how things measure up.
