Crucial MX500 Internal SSD Reviews

Nice little SSD

By John
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2023-02-02

Bought this to use as a backup drive of another SSD that I use for photos. Was very easy to set up in my OWC housing, very light in weight. Speedy enough. Compared to M.2 PCI-e drives it's very slow but I don't need it to be fast, just functional. Always happy with Crucial products.

Modern update for old PC

I've used these drives to update old PCs. It makes a massive difference in performance regarding booting and loading. I believe there's a cache for power failure as well. So far very happy with the drive.

Decent buy

Price per GB for its size, having a decent controller copared to the cheaper options, and some more expensive options not really neccessary to buy compared to this. The shell to the ssd even feels like aluminum instead of many drives that use plastic, so that is a nice touch, to my liking.

Fast.

does this has d ram?

does this has d ram?
Asked by: Peter
According to the Anandtech review from 2018, yes it has DRAM Cache, as well as SLC Cache. DRAM cache: 256MB, 512MB, 1024MB, or 2048MB depending on the size. (512MB on the 1TB). Aditionally it also offers an SLC cache. "As usual for Crucial, the SLC write cache is dynamically sized based on how full the drive is." Some manufacturers have been known to silently change SSD internals and pretend it's the same drive though, so the fact that a lot of manufacturers don't list important details like this in the official specs on their website can be a bit concerning.

I cannot answer this with absolute certainty, I have no experience with the Atomos ninja V. I use this for photo and video storage and for that it works great. A sata cable end on one side and a regular USB end on other side, it is plug and play with my laptop. Is it possible to contact Atomos support directly and ask?? That is all I can say. Joe
