    Crucial MX500 reviews

    2TB MX500 2.5" Internal SSD is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast Definitely feel the speed increase even though my old machine 2010 mbp can't take advantage of all its potential. � Wish I had bought this sooner. � App launch is much faster (so is boot speed, but I almost never reboot my Mac anyways) � �FCP has become useable- it was pathetic with my old drive. � � The whole system has become a whole lot more snappy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Price, Size and Speed Only been using it a week, but having an additional 2TB fast drive is very useful. I built a rig with a 1TB NVME OS drive, two 1 TB SSDs, and 2 4TB platter drives. I normally use the platter drives for backups but the SSDs back up so much more quickly that I have been using them and the Crucial MX500 at 2 TB allows me to have 3 full backups on the drive. I have also included the benchmark of the MX500. It is connected to a Sata 3 connector on my Asus Rog Strix Z370-E mobo.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, but can't use with my Shogun Bought this to use with my Atomos Shogun because of the size and speed. �Didn't work so I contacted Atomos and they said this drive do not have the same firmware that Shogun needs to run it. So while disappointed in the that the drive runs great in my computer and allows me to edit multiple streams of 4k quickly while the card is inserted into a PCI drive port.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great external drive for video editing Bought this with a angelbird C-SATA USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C to SATA Adapter so I could use this as an external drive for FCP X on my iMac pro. It performs much better at 500 mb/s read and write vs by g raid drives I was using at around 400 mb/s read and write. I compared the same multi cam 4 angle all shot in 4K two 60fps on this drive, the native hard drive on the iMac pro, and the g raid, and without forming optimized media the native drive skipped hardly any frames, which is 4x faster than this crucial drive and there wasn't a lot of difference in performance on playback with all angles up between those two. (I assume hard drive performance becomes irrelevant at a speed not much higher than the crucial is capable of). The g raid had significantly more slowdown and skipped frames. I edited an entire 2 hour movie using this crucial drive and have to say it's well worth the investment. Syncing multi cam clips alone was shocking how much faster it would place the clips over the g raid thunderbolt drive. No need to spend high dollar on a faster external drive when you can have this in my opinion. Can't speak to other applications just video editing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great PS4 PRO internal SSD Using as an internal drive for PS4 PRO and it works great! Plenty of space and games load in a snap. Would definitely recommend.
