This 2.5-inch solid state drive consumes far less power than the traditional hard disk drive helping to lengthen the battery life of your computer. Along with reduced power consumption, this drive also features an AES 256-bit encryption engine and comes compliant with Microsoft eDrive, TCG Opal 2.0 and IEEE-1667 authentication standards.

Do More, Faster, Longer
The Crucial M550 SSD provides enhanced data transfer speeds while consuming significantly less power. It enables your computer to boot up almost immediately, load files and programs almost instantly, accelerate demanding applications, and manage power more efficiently so your battery lasts longer. This SSD is backed by a variety of features including native write acceleration, RAIN (redundant array of independent NAND) technology, adaptive thermal protection, hardware-based encryption, and an enhanced data integrity algorithm.
Save On Power Costs
Run your system longer and use less power. Based on published specs, a common laptop hard drive uses 2.5 watts of power on an average workload, compared to 0.15 watts on the Crucial M550 solid state drive.
Secure and Protect Your Data
As a self-encrypting drive, the Crucial M550 incorporates an enhanced level of hardware encryption into the controller, allowing the drive to operate at full speed without the performance loss associated with software-based encryption. The Crucial M550 meets the requirements of TCG Opal 2.0, IEEE-1667, and Microsoft eDrive standards.
