What customers say about "Key Specs"
Crucial MX500 (CT500MX500SSD4) Internal SSD, 3D NAND, SATA, M.2
  • Everything runs butter smooth now which is a huge difference from having a platter HD that ran at 7200 rpms.
  • The boot time on my Dell Inspiron 15 7559 is so fast now, took about 7s to completely boot up. Definitely worth the price.
  • Boot time went from 2+ minutes to 30 seconds, from power on to using an app.
  • Drive is fast and the price is really good compared to competing products.
  • Easy to install, booting really fast and good quality, i am very pleased!
Western Digital Green M.2 (WDS240G1G0B) 240 GB SSD - Green
  • Brilliant speed, no noise and safer than spinning hard drives.
  • I've bought 2 external WD hard drives and they work perfectly, never failed.
  • It's fast. It's good quality. It's a damn SSD that's well priced, what more do you want?
  • I turn on my PC. It boots to windows in 6 seconds. I start rebooting my PC because of how incredible the difference is between this and a HDD.
  • My computer is now so fast with booting up and opening programs, very glad I did and having used Western Drive products before I was buying with confidence.

What customers say about "Features"
Crucial MX500 (CT500MX500SSD4) Internal SSD, 3D NAND, SATA, M.2
  • I like that they included the tie down screw as most SSD's do not.
  • The drive temp never climbs over 55 degrees celsius.
  • Install went easily. Works great. 10/10
  • It installed pretty quick and I only had to use one of the screws provided to hold it down in the M.2 slot.
  • Crucial Software made it incredibly easy to clone the drive and boot from the SSD.
Western Digital Green M.2 (WDS240G1G0B) 240 GB SSD - Green
  • This ssd is best used with another hard drive or storage because of the size.
  • The WD Dashboard software is super useful. Highly recommended!!
  • First go with the M.2 format. Works a treat as a boot drive. Very quick and keeps your case uncluttered.
  • Its Good not bad, if you’re on a tight budget and you are looking for good price for good m.2 ssd buy this.
  • If you're thinking of getting an M2 hoping it will be even faster than a SATA SSD then don't bother. In benchmarks the numbers look great but in actual use you won't notice the difference.
