The Crucial MX500 1TB SATA internal solid state drive (opens in new tab) has dropped to $109.99 with code EMCDKDG38 at Newegg. That's a great discount considering we haven't seen this SSD go on sale since January. It did drop to $100 back then, but the MX500 has been selling for $130 or more since. You can find it for $115 at B&H (opens in new tab) right now, which is just $5 more and might be your preferred retailer. But no one can match or beat Newegg's price today.

Easy upgrade over an older hard drive. Has sequential read/write speeds up to 560 and 510 MB/s respectively. Helps save your work even during a power outage with Power Loss Immunity. Has hardware encryption and 5-year warranty.

There are two real reasons you'd want to get this SSD. The first is you've never upgraded to an SSD before. Everyone should be on an SSD in 2020. If you're still working from a hard drive, I wouldn't even hesitate. I mean, if you have enough time to go refill your coffee while waiting for your operating system to load when you turn your computer on in the morning, you need to upgrade. The second reason to get this is if you already have an SSD but because the prices increase exponentially, you never got one with very much space. This is a 1TB drive, which means you could store your operating system, tons of programs, and even a bunch of media on it and load it all with incredible speeds.

This internal SSD features sequential read speeds up to 560 MB/s and sequential write speeds up to 510 MB/s. It offers offers integrated power loss immunity which preserves your work if your power goes out suddenly, and its AES 256-bit hardware-based encryption helps ensure your data remains secure. Crucial includes a 5-year limited warranty with all the options.
