Crucial MX500 2TB SSD Review

Today we test on the big Crucial MX500 SSD with 2TB capacity! Already some months ago we tested the Crucial MX500 with 1TB, which performed well. However, since some users don’t get along with 1TB total size, we now take a close look at Crucial’s largest MX500 SSD to date and compare it with dozens of other SSDs. Can the big MX500 2TB SSD keep up with the fast MX500 1TB SSD? We show this in the following review!

Thanks for the support …

The delivery of the Crucial CT2000MX500SSD1 SSD …

As with the previous Crucial SSDs, the SSD is safely packed in a small carton. But not with the nice hinged lid anymore, but in a slightly flatter box with an opening from above.

The back of the package already shows the limited 5 year warranty and the important link to download the software to update the firmware as well as to the SSD installation instructions and to clone the SSD. Alternatively we offer in the forum some instructions to copy the SSD.

This is included in the delivery package …
