At $200, the Crucial MX500 offers one of the few high-capacity SATA SSDs from a reputable vendor at a low price, making this deal hard to pass up. In our Crucial MX500 review we praised its mainstream performance. 

Crucial's 2TB MX500 can read at up to 560 MBps and write at up to 510 MBps for sequential loads, with a 95K and 90K read/write IOPS rating. They also support hardware-based AES 256-bit encryption, meaning you can use them with encryption software, such as Microsoft's BitLocker, without any adverse effects.
