Crucial M500 960GB SSD Review - Benchmarks - DiskBench

Crucial M500 960GB SSD Review
The Tera-Era has begun! Crucial leverages its 20nm NAND flash to achieve a major milestone, the first consumer 2.5" SSD to reach 1TB. Since parent company Micron owns the flash fab, the price is much better than you might expect.

Note: In this test we use the Lenovo W530 Mobile Workstation and a SuperSSpeed S301 SLC 128GB SSD to move a 15GB block of data to and from the target drive. This is part of our real world test regiment. Roughly 45GB of data resides on the target drive before the '15GB Block' is transfer. The 15GB Block is the same data we built for the Data on Disk Testing and is a mix of compressible and incompressible data.

Copying large volumes of data quickly is just one of many benefits to owning a SSD. In this test we move 15.2GB of mixed data, incompressible, compressible, random and sequential, to and from the drive. The M500 960GB reads the data at just under 300MB/s and writes data at just over 276MB/s.
