Crucial M550 512GB SSD
Crucial only released 'drive only' product SKUs for the M550, so don't expect an elaborate accessory package. This should keep the cost down though.
Inside, we found the drive and a 7mm to 9.5mm bracket.
Here we get our first look at the drive.
The information label is on the top cover. The cover is exactly that in this case, just a thin sliver to protect the PCB. The other side of the case is a one-piece design that also doubles as a heat sink.
The 7mm design allows you to install the drive in a new Ultrabook. Crucial includes a 7mm to 9.5mm adapter ring for systems with drive sleds that require the full height.
Inside the drive, we found sixteen NAND flash packages, a Marvell controller, a Micron DRAM package, and capacitors for host power fail protection.
The Crucial M550 is the first SSD on the market to use the new Marvell 88SS9189 controller.
