Description

The Crucial MX500 250GB 2.5-inch is an internal SSD that lets you expand the storage capacity of your laptop. The SSD is more energy-efficient than the MX300 series, thanks to the 64 layer 3D NAND technology. Your laptop will last longer with 1 battery charge. This drive reads at 560MB/s, which is 30MB/s faster than the MX300 SSDs when accessing large files such as movies and graphic design projects. A video of 2GB takes 4 seconds. The AES 256-bit hardware encryption protects your movie collection, holiday photos, and study or work documents against hackers and data theft. The automatic error correction and recovery in case of power loss additionally ensure that your files will be saved if the power suddenly fails, and not be damaged.
