Usually after big events like Black Friday we see some of the deals come back for at least a little bit of time, but it's more rare to see the deals get even better. Right now the Crucial MX500 1TB solid state drive (opens in new tab) is down to $89 at Amazon. Not only is that the lowest price we've ever seen for this particular SSD, it's $5 better than a deal we shared over the Black Friday weekend. It's $5 better than other retailers right now, too, like B&H (opens in new tab). Amazon is price matching Best Buy with this deal, which is part of a larger one-day sale for Green Monday.
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 the year 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.
