Experience the difference from SATA SSD to
PCIe NVMe performance

The Lexar NM500 M.2 NVMe Solid-State drive (SSD) gives your PC the performance upgrade it needs from SATA to an entry-level PCIe NVMe
for faster startups, data transfers, and application loads. With speeds 2.5x quicker than a SATA SSD2, your PC will be
ready to take on more and finish faster than ever with read speeds of up to 1650MB/s1.

More powerful than


With the PCIe Gen3x2 NVMe 1.2 standard you get sequential read speed up to 1650MB/s1, giving you 2.5x the performance of SATA SSDs2. The NM500 is also built with 3D NAND flash.

Outstanding endurance

With outstanding endurance thanks to no moving parts it’s cooler, quieter, and more reliable than a traditional hard disk drive, plus it’s also shock and vibration resistant3.

Monitor your drive

With the featured SSD Dash management software you’ll have the tools you need to stay up to date with how your SSD is performing2. Easily monitor your drives performance to make sure it’s always on point.

Lexar SSD Dash

Lexar SSD Dash is a user friendly software designed for Lexar SSD products. It provides up-to-date information, such as drive health, drive condition, and S.M.A.R.T status.

[Disk Information]

View information about your drive,

including size, temperature, and interface.



S.M.A.R.T stands for Self-Monitoring, Analysis and 

Reporting Technology. Allows you to check the health of your drive.

[Life Span]

Lets you know how much life is left on the drive.


[Secure Erase]

Permanently removes all data on your SSD.


Reduced power consumption and cooler operation makes the battery life last longer than an HDD.
