(Higher is better)
An aggressively priced SATA SSD, the Crucial MX500 still manages swift read and write speeds, making it a very good value for upgrading a mainstream laptop or desktop PC.
All in all at $110 on Amazon right now, the Crucial drive is a great pick at the higher end of SATA SSDs, while in many cases the differences between it and the MyDigitalSSD SuperBoot were very minor, it did jump ahead quite a bit in our file transfer...
With that said, the minor write throttling hasn't changed our minds about the MX500. Now that it is finally available in an M.2 form factor and now that we have tested it in a 500GB capacity, we can definitely say that it is still one of the best values...
