SSD Portfolio adds BX500 solid state drive
CRUCIAL HAS launched its new BX500 SSD, a next-generation drive designed to provide everyday computing users with a fast and reliable storage upgrade. Available in a 2.5-inch form factor and 120GB, 240GB, and 480GB capacities, the BX500 is the easiest way to get all the speed of a new computer without the price, states the memory manufacturer.
With sequential read/write speeds up to 540/500 MB/s, the new BX500 enables faster system boot up, faster file loads, and overall improved system responsiveness. The BX500 has no moving parts, making it a cooler, quieter, and more reliable alternative to a hard drive. Furthermore, because it uses less power than a hard drive, laptop battery life is extended, says Crucial.
EASY INSTALLATION AND SUPPORT
The company promises that the Crucial SSD Install Guide provides easy-to-follow steps and videos for stress-free installation, and the Acronis True Image HD software helps to migrate data quickly and easily. The Crucial Storage Executive software tool allows users to see how much storage (GB) has been used, download the latest firmware, and improve drive performance. Additionally, the BX500 is backed by award-winning, in-language support via phone, chat, email, and community forum.
The BX500 offers a range of additional benefits, including:
• Data loss protection via the Multistep Data Integrity Algorithm.
• Protection from overheating via Adaptive Thermal Monitoring tools.
• Faster writes via Dynamic Write Acceleration technology.
The Crucial BX500 SSD is backed by a three-year limited warranty, and is available for immediate purchase at Crucial.com or PB Technologies stores nationwide or www.pbtech.co.nz
