The Crucial P5 1TB NVMe M.2 internal solid state drive has dropped to $109.99 through Best Buy’s deal of the day. This is a unique price that won’t last long, This actually matches the lowest we’ve ever seen for the 1TB drive. The 500GB drive is also on sale for $59.99, a new low for that version. Remember as part of Best Buy’s deals of the day you won’t find this price in many other places, and it’s not going to last very long either.
Storage and Speed
The read/write times on this SSD go up to 3400 MB/s and 3000 MB/s respectively. These would be a great upgrade even over regular SATA SSDs as long as your motherboard supports it. Crucial covers the SSD with a 5-year limited warranty.

The Crucial P5 is an innovative SSD designed to integrate directly with your motherboard with the M.2 form factor. You’ll need to make sure your motherboard has a slot for an internal M.2 2280 SSD. If that’s the case, and you haven’t added an SSD to the slot yet, you should grab this one. You’ll be amazed at just how fast it is.
Jump up in read/write performance with speeds of 3,400 MB/s and 3,000 MB/s respectively. That’s crazy fast and perfect for loading times for big programs like video games, creative software, and more. Compare these speeds to a regular SATA SSD like the Samsung 870 QVO. This is a perfectly fine drive but its form factor means it maxes out at speeds of 560 and 530 MB/s respectively. All things being equal, give me an M.2 NVMe SSD any day.
In addition to fast speeds, the drive has a lot of other features. The rapid, full-drive encryption means it can handle secure information and protect your data. It enhances security management with its available tools and helps prevent performance degradation over time. It also has adaptive thermal protection and error correction.
The SSD can work with multiple platforms including Windows, Mac, and Linux. Plus, the Crucial P5 drive is also covered by a limited five-year warranty straight from Crucial.
