Crucial announces BX500 SSD

By

Available in 120, 240 and 480GB versions, the BX500 is the latest SSD from Crucial.

As with all modern drives, the BX500 is a 2.5 inch form-factor device and intended as a direct replacement for the existing HDD in a laptop.

The device claims sequential read/write speeds up to 540/500 MB/s which will obviously improve boot times and overall responsiveness, particularly for larger files and programs. Additionally, Crucial claims the device is 45 times more energy efficient than a typical hard drive (they compared the 480GB model with the WD Caviar Blue WD10EZEX 1TB HDD). This will assist to extend laptop battery life.

The drive ships with installation instructions and videos, along with Acronis True Image HD software to migrate data. The package also includes management software to determine space usage, to update firmware and to manage drive performance.

"It’s time for computer users to make the transition from hard drives to solid state technology," said Teresa Kelley, vice-president and general manager, Micron Consumer Products Group. "SSD technology is becoming more mainstream than ever, and for those who are ready to make the switch to solid state, the Crucial BX500 offers performance and reliability at a competitive price from a brand consumers have grown to trust."

The Crucial BX500 SSD is backed by a three-year limited warranty, and can be bought from Crucial.com and through a number of global partners.

In Australia, the three BX500 versions will be available from Mwave, Scorptech, Centrecom, Kogan and KS Computers amongst others.  Those with reference to the BX500 on their site are showing availablility within the next few days.

Recommended Australian pricing is:
120GB $44.95
240GB $71.95
480GB $124.95
