Great Prices, Great Product, Awesome Service As Usual

Pros: Easy installation, good price, fast speeds, great service from Newegg.

Cons: Strangely the blister package came smelling like coconut oil. No, I couldn't make this up.

Overall Review: I've been meaning to update my systems to SSD and finally got this M.2 card. Install was a cinch and Crucial provided a 3rd party software to ease the transfer and partition. What took minutes to start Windows had turned to seconds! Worth every penny as my games load up 30% faster. Even multimedia rendering had been greatly shortened. I have nothing bad to say.

Defective product?

Pros: none

Cons: Doesn't work and slow customer service.

Overall Review: I would not recommend ordering this product. I ordered a drive, tried to install it and it doesn't work. Called customer service and they don't have an easy way to get me a new drive. I had to ship it back, wait for them to check it, then send me a replacement. Upon receiving the replacement, it also does not work. Seems like a defective product. I will not order another one. I am also not impressed with the slow replacement process for a defective product.

Manufacturer Response:
We appreciate your feedback.

I am sorry to hear about the problems you had, and without a description of your issue or what troubleshooting has been attempted, I am unable to comment on your exact problem.

Considering you purchased your drive through Newegg any requests for return within 30 days should have been directed back to seller. The reseller already has your card information and shipping address on file, so they would have been able to quickly send you’re a replacement drive.

Considering you’re having the same problem with a replacement there is likely a problem with how the drive is being configured or with your system, so I would suggest contacting our support again so we can assist you.

Read this if installing in LG Gram!

Overall Review: Overall, this seems to be a good drive. It's taken me about 10-15 hours, numerous attempts, and a chat with Crucial support to get this installed in my LG Gram 13 (13Z980). Fortunately, I found this article that was exactly what I needed: https://sonsofsamhorn.net/index.php?threads/solved-help-installing-ssd-to-new-laptop.27609/

In short, set this registry key before installing and you shouldn't have any issues. Otherwise, if you've already tried to install then see the additional details below.

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\EnhancedStorageDevices]
"TCGSecurityActivationDisabled"=dword:00000001



Crucial® MX500 SSD advanced features
"Hardware-based encryption: Keep personal files and confidential data restricted from hackers and thieves with AES 256-bit encryption that meets all industry standards, including Microsoft® eDrive, IEEE1667, and TCG Opal 2.0."

"eDrive is a security storage specification defined by Microsoft for use with BitLocker. It is based on the TCG OPAL and IEEE 1667 specifications."


The disk drive lock (OPAL) is a security feature implemented on the disk drive itself. It is defined in Hard Disk ATA Standard. Both the user and the master drive lock password are stored directly on the disk drive on its controller board in a registry. The passwords are not stored on the disk's data areas that is plates in HDD or memory chips in SSD.
BIOS serves only to store the lock/unlock utility and communicate with the disk drive.
The above said means that the disk lock goes with the disk drive.

The message "Unlock CT500MX500SSD4" on your picture is asking for the user and/or the master disk drive lock password, which are both different from PSID code.
You need PSID code to unlock the drive with special utility - PSID reverting tool. In this case Crucial Storage Executive.

1) Take picture of PSID on drive. Attached by USB. Boot to windows on main drive.

2) You need to unmount the drive first.
The instructions said to do this:
1. Open an administrator command prompt.
2. Run the following command: compmgmt.msc
3. Select Disk Management.
4. Right-click on the target drive and select Offline.

I didn't have this option so I just deleted the partitions that were mounted.

3) Perform PSID Revert using Crucial Storage Executive tool

4) Prevent Windows from enabling encryption by either
1. set a HDD password in BIOS (because eDrive cannot become enabled while ATA security is enabled, and vice-versa).
2. set a registry entry prior to letting Windows Setup partition the drive:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\EnhancedStorageDevices]
"TCGSecurityActivationDisabled"=dword:00000001

5) Then I could initialize the drive, create the partitions and all works fine.

It's an SSD, it either works or it doesn't, goes fast or not...

Pros: - Crucial
- Price point per GB
- Reliable

Cons: - none

Overall Review: Crucial is one of my go-to brands for affordability, quality, and good performance. I've used their 2.5 inch SSDs and their M.2 SSDs (non-NVMe). It's hard to review an SSD unless you are actually hitting it up for performance metrics to compare against reported specs (which I am not doing). I plug it in, turn it on, install the OS. Did it go faster than a standard HDD? Then I'm good to go. Never had a DOA from Crucial, never had problems with a Crucial device.

Is Crucial the TOP of the TOP of the TOP of performers, maybe not, but when the top performers is a few percent higher, what are you really getting out of it? 1-2 seconds faster? Please don't misunderstand, I'm NOT comparing Crucial SSDs to anyone else, what I'm saying is that if there were something better (and I used two other brands of SSDs) the performance to price value doesn't justify the higher costs of competitors. It comes down to marketing (in my opinion).

So, why buy then Crucial then? Because while for entry level or simple builds I may not care about performance (and the Crucial performs just fine), I DO care about quality and longevity, and I can get that kind of trust from Crucial and will continue to buy their stuff (SSD's at least). And because I'm a realist - even the best hardware from name brands 'could' fail, so you should have a backup of essentials anyways...

Bottom line, I like the item, like their stuff, and would buy it again...

Lasted 4 months and then died

Pros: lots of space (1TB), got it during a sale (which is always sweet... cheaper stuff right?)

Cons: It is dead and I lost my c: partition with windows (will need to purchase another windows key... another $100+ down the drain).

Read and write speeds weren't that amazing when it was working compared to your run of the mill SSD. I don't know guys, I'd stay away from this one.

Thank you for purchasing the MX500 M.2 drive and for your review. I am sorry to hear that you experienced issues with the SSD and the drive is no longer detected by the system. There may be some things to try that will allow the drive to start communicating again and all of the data should still be on the drive, so I would recommend contacting our Technical Support department using the contact information below for assistance.
