There are some more shots and descriptions of the internals in the
excellent review at
http://techreport.com/review/24666/crucial-m500-ssd-reviewed

That also highlights the big problem with this drive that's kept me
from buying one so far:

"Unlike rivals Intel and Samsung, Crucial doesn't provide utility
software with a built-in health indicator. The M500's payload of SMART
attributes doesn't contain any references to flash wear or bytes
written, either. Several of the SMART attributes are labeled
"Vendor-specific," but you'll need to guess what they track and read
the associated values using third-party software."

That's a serious problem for most business use of this sort of drive.
Agreed - I was thinking the same thing!

Cheers

Mark
