Crucial M550 1TB SSD




We're going to buzz through some of the box and drive images so we can finish all four reviews in a timely manner.








Here we get our first look at the M550. Crucial used a 7mm case design and includes a 7mm to 9.5mm adapter plate. Our drive didn't ship with a desktop adapter bracket or other accessories like SATA cables, screws, and so on. The M550 is a performance SSD without all of the goodies that increase the cost.










Inside the case is where we found the actual parts that make this amazing technology work. Crucial armed the M550 1TB with a Marvell controller, two Micron DRAM packages to cache the page data, and sixteen NAND flash packages.






The Marvell 88SS9189 is a bit faster than the 88SS9187 used in the M500.








The M550 has host power loss protection built into the drive.
