Today, users can pick up the Crucial Mx500 1TB SSD for $84 through Amazon. This puts the final price around 8 cents per GB, one of the lowest prices we've ever seen for this drive since it first debuted.
We reviewed this SSD back in 2017 when it was initially released, noting its comparable performance to the Samsung 850 PRO series at a lower price point. This offer makes the drive stand out even further with a 26% decrease in price.
The Crucial MX500 is a 2.5-inch form factor drive with a SATA 3 interface. This specific version has a 1TB storage capacity, and read/write speeds can reach as high as 560/510 MB/s.
Under the hood the drive uses Micron's 3D NAND combined with a Silicon Motion SM2258 controller. Users can also take advantage of 256-bit AES encryption to add an extra layer of security to their data.
