It boasts of 500 MB/s sequential read and sequential write in a range of 130 MB/s to 400 MB/s. It comes with a 3 year warranty.

Product Pricing

The suggested MSRP is priced around $ 600 which is still expensive but presents the market with the first viable opportunity from a trusted brand to go SSD only.

As outlined above, the Crucial 500 offers some enhanced features over previous models. One significant mention is that all M500 models utilize 128 GB NAND die versus the 64 GB NAND die traditionally found in SSDs. This NAND die selection is part of what enables Micron to offer drives at such competitive price.

In our opinion, this product meets all the requisites and make for a good buying option.

What are Threaded Inserts?

Threaded inserts are commonly used as a fastening element in plumbing works. This is also called as the threaded bushing. It fastens the object into a threaded hole; the idea is to close any gap that may be inevitable due to threaded inserts for wood standardisation of fastening products. Threaded inserts may be used to repair a stripped threaded hole; it also provides a durable threaded hole in soft texture. They enable elimination of machining operation by insertion of mold or cast threads which are typically thicker than the regular thread used for plumbing material.

Standards Governing M2M Communication

Any network that is built to communicate is based on certain standards that are defined by a body that governs the rules of communication. This is mainly to ensure different vendors and service providers can communicate their devices with ease and to avoid monopoly and too much dependency on a particular brand or service provider free test kit. For m2m communication that main institute that governs is the European Telecommunication Standards Institute (ETSI). They have come up with many Technical Reports and Technical Specifications in last few years for Equipment Manufacturers and developers to follow. This helps in building a homogeneous network.
