The Crucial CT500P5SSD8 P5 500GB NVMe internal solid state drive is down to $64.99 on Amazon. This is an all-new low price for the P5 drive, which was selling for as much as $80 before Black Friday. It dropped to $72 for the holiday shopping season, but now you can get it for even less. Some of the other capacities are on sale as well. The 250GB version is down to $49.99 from a regular price around $55.
Get read/write times up to 3400 MB/s and 3000 MB/s respectively. That's crazy fast compared to SSDs without NVMe. This is M.2 form factor so make sure your motherboard supports it. Includes a 5-year limited warranty from Crucial.
The Crucial P5 is an innovative SSD designed to integrate directly with your motherboard with the M.2 form factor. You'll need to make sure your motherboard has a slot for an internal M.2 2280 SSD. If that's the case, and you haven't added an SSD to the slot yet, you should grab this one. You'll be amazed at just how fast it is.
Jump up in read/write performance with speeds of 3,400 MB/s and 3,000 MB/s respectively. That's crazy fast and perfect for loading times for big programs like video games, creative software, and more. Compare these speeds to a regular SATA SSD like the Samsung 870 QVO. This is a perfectly fine drive but its form factor means it maxes out at speeds of 560 and 530 MB/s respectively. All things being equal, give me an M.2 NVMe SSD any day.
In addition to fast speeds, the drive has a lot of other features. The rapid, full-drive encryption means it can handle secure information and protect your data. It enhances security management with its available tools and helps prevent performance degradation over time. It also has adaptive thermal protection and error correction.
the SSD can work with multiple platforms including Windows, Mac, and Linux. Plus, the Crucial P5 drive is also covered by a limited five-year warranty straight from Crucial.
