Crucial MX500 500GB SSD review

2. Unboxing

In terms of design, Crucial changed the colors slightly from previous MX-series SSD packaging. The drive's box gives us some details about the warranty and software add-ons. Crucial also includes Acronis True Image HD software for cloning drives.

The MX500 uses a slim 7mm case design that's commonly used in thin notebooks. Crucial includes a 7mm to 9.5mm adapter bracket for use in drive sleds that require the thicker profile.

Under the hood, the PCB of the MX500 500GB SSD has eight NAND packages with just two die apiece. The MX500 is also the first drive in this series with an SMI controller.

Crucial is also offering an updated version of the Storage Executive software to support the MX500. The software allows you to monitor the SSD and provides tools, like secure erase, for drive maintenance. Storage Executive also features a tool to increase overprovisioning.
