SSD Port­fo­lio adds BX500 solid state drive

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - PRODUCT WATCH -

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.


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 Cru­ or PB Tech­nolo­gies stores na­tion­wide or
