            Ordering Information

            The 256GB M550 mSATA 6Gb/s Internal Solid State Drive enables your computer to boot up almost immediately, load files and programs almost instantly, accelerate demanding applications, and manage power more efficiently so your battery lasts longer. Backed by the most advanced feature set available – Native Write Acceleration, RAIN (Redundant Array of Independant NAND) technology, Adaptive Thermal Protection, hardware-based encryption, and Crucial's exclusive data integrity algorithm – the M550 delivers a complete performance gain that’s measured by far more than just specs.

            Every manufacturer has ideas about how to deliver better performance. Some use file compression schemes, but those don’t help video, audio, or graphic files that are already compressed. Some steal system memory to improve a slow drive. The Crucial M550 treats all files the same, regardless of whether they’re compressed or uncompressed, so you get true 550 MB/s sequential reads across all file types.

            You probably save lots of sensitive and personal information on yourcomputer – encrypt it and keep it safe. As a self-encrypting drive, the Crucial M550 incorporates the highest level of hardware encryption into the controller, allowing the drive to operate at full speed without the performance loss associated with software-based encryption. The Crucial M550 is one of the only drives on the market to meet the rigorous requirements of TCG Opal 2.0, IEEE-1667, and Microsoft eDrive.
