Ample Storage Capacity
This 480GB solid state drive provides plenty of storage for everything from photos to videos, music, documents, and more.
Consistently Fast Speeds
Regardless of the types of files you are working with on a Crucial SSD, you can take advantage of high speeds with no drop in performance across different file types. Crucial SSDs treat all files the same, regardless of whether or not they're compressed or uncompressed.

      Comments about Crucial 480GB M500 mSATA Internal SSD:

      This was to upgrade my Sony Vaio Duo 11 Ultrabook from 128 gig to 480. Well worth it in speed and space. If I had waited a couple of more days I could have gotten it for almost $[$]less with the latest price drop. The price keeps dropping on these SSD hard drives which is good.
