    Crucial M500 960GB 2.5 inch SATA Solid State Drive, 1TB drive on sale at Amazon UK

    I just read Fool's post and checked Amazon US where it's sold out, then checked Amazon UK and it's currently discounted down from £594.74 to 562.36 still expensive yet if you have data that is important or you're processing video or need your information very very quickly then SSD is the way to go! It's also less than buying 2 smaller 500GB drives.

    For Consumers | Transform the Performance of Your System

    New interfaces and multi-tasking demands require more from your system than perhaps ever before.

    Thatís where the Crucial M500 SSD comes in. With speeds dramatically faster than a hard drive, the Crucial M500 SSD isn't just a storage upgrade--it's a complete system transformation. From its nearly instantaneous boot times, powerful data transfer speeds, increased multi-tasking capability, and rock-solid reliability, the Crucial M500 delivers dramatic performance gains--all at an affordable price

    For Business | Secure Your Data. Protect Your Customers' Privacy

    Your data is your competitive advantage. Whether itís the inside information on your latest product or your customers' credit card numbers, information in the wrong hands has the potential to devastate your business. The best strategy for protecting your sensitive data is to implement a defence that includes top-level hardware-based encryption.
    The Crucial M500 SSD is a self-encrypting drive (SED) based on the rigorous standards established by the TCG Opal specification. Combined with applications like Microsoft BitLocker or Wave Systems EMBASSY Trust suite, our AES 256-bit hardware encryption engine (thatís integrated into the controller of the Crucial M500) allows the drive to operate at full speed without the performance loss thatís typically associated with non-SED drives using software-based encryption technology.

    For All Users | Consistently Fast Speeds. No Exceptions

    No matter what kind of files youíre working with, on a Crucial SSD youíll experience high speeds with no drop in performance across different file types. Crucial SSDs treat all files the same, regardless of whether theyíre compressed or uncompressed. While many SSDs on the market achieve faster speeds by using file compression, many of the most common file types canít be compressed, resulting in SSDs that often deliver slower speeds than advertised. This is important because the files most people use every day - videos, mp3s, advanced graphic files and zip files - are compressed files and thus unable to be compressed any further. With a Crucial SSD, the specs we advertise are the same specs youíll see in the real world.
    Crucial SSDs. Performance You Can Trust

    Crucial is a brand of Micron, one of the largest NAND manufacturers in the world, and we design and develop our SSDs in-house using state-of-the-art technology. This means: hundreds of SSD qualification tests, more than 1,000 hours of pre-release validation testing, 1.5 billion dollars invested in R&D, and more than 30 years of industry expertise. Weíre dedicated to quality and your SSD has been designed with cutting-edge technology and has been rigorously tested and approved. Donít settle for anything less.

    5.0 out of 5 starsSo far, so good14 May 2013

    Size Name:240GB|Amazon Verified Purchase however that's the 240GB, think they reviewed the wrong product!
    Installed in a 2009 Macbook Pro. Installation was quick, trouble free and took around an hour to install hardware and a fresh copy of Mountain Lion. Amazon delivery, as always, was a day.

    So far, a significant speed increase, particularly when using Lightroom. Programs load faster, the machine boots and shuts down faster - maybe not quite as quickly as some reviews of the ssd's predecessor the M4 might suggest, but still impressive.

    My MPB had the max 8gb RAM already, I think this upgrade has just extended it's useful life with me by a couple of years.

    I just purchased a 1TB HDD from Tesco in the UK it was made by some company called Touro, I'd never heard of them but it was £59 for 1TB, a 10th of what a SSD is currently costing for the same capacity. That said I've spent most of the day copying files onto it, at least I mean the computer has I've been outside, it's been a great day for weather and that's been rare in Scotland of late.

    So far the drive has been good, it runs about the same speed as the 500GB I'm copying from.
