Crucial BX500 480GB SATAIII SSD Review

Conclusion and Verdict

The BX500 SSD series entered the market and made some noise at really low prices. Users were expecting also low performance but I can assure you, it’s not the case with this SSD. In some more demanding operations performance is maybe not the best but all home and office users should be satisfied. Especially when someone has a lower budget and replaces standard HDD then will see a huge difference.


480GB version of the BX500 costs $69.99 on Amazon what is an amazing price for what this drive offers. The SSD is covered by a three-year warranty with a really helpful support.



  • High performance to price ratio

Especially home and office users will see the difference, and considering the requirements of modern software, storage seems the best upgrade option.
