Crucial's BX500 series launched back in August last year, and it promised to bring SSD storage at an affordable price, at least in those capacities it launched. Based on SMI's SM2258XT controller and Micron's 3D TLC NAND, the BX500 SSD series comes in a standard 2.5-inch 7mm form-factor with SATA 6Gbps interface, offering a sequential performance of up to 540MB/s for read and up to 500MB/s for write.
Since the launch of the BX500 SSD series, SSD prices have gone down quite a bit, and you can now snag the 480GB BX500 for around $50-60, which is significantly lower than its $89.99 launch price.
The new 2TB model has the same performance rating as the others in the lineup, and it also comes with a 3-year warranty. It has a suggested retail price of $214.99, which is not half bad for a 2TB SATA SSD.,
