How efficient is this SSD?
The Crucial M500 has been designed to enhance the performance of your computer or laptop without using more power for it to run. The dynamic thermal guard protection constantly monitors and maintains ideal temperatures for the drive to operate. In doing this it keeps the temperature down to protect your data and maintain responsiveness, ensuring your computer is safe from overheating.
How easy is the SSD to install?
Installing a new hard drive can be a daunting prospect if you haven’t done it before - but it doesn’t have to be. Installing into a laptop or a computer is easy enough as long as you remember to use an anti-static wrist strap which prevents you from potentially damaging any smaller components within the computer. The SATA connection allows you to just unplug the pre-existing hard drive to which you can then plug the new one in.
