Crucial, a global brand of Micron Consumer Products Group (part of Micron Technology, Inc) has appointed Syntech (a leading South African IT hardware distributor) as its distribution partner.

Micron Technology, Inc. is one of the largest memory manufacturers in the world. With more than 15 years of experience, Crucial knows DRAM. They know SSDs. Crucial is a trusted name, and that’s no coincidence. The Crucial product line includes award-winning solid state drives and memory for more than 50,000 different laptops, desktops, workstations, servers, and other systems.

As a brand of Micron, Crucial is able to work directly with engineers to develop and refine products to be industry-leading and high quality. Crucial memory has been qualified and approved by all major original equipment manufacturers.

Syntech will initially deliver the Crucial M500 range to the market, a range which has been described as one of the most important consumer friendly SSD ranges to arrive on the market. The range was awarded 4.5 stars out of 5 by TechRadar, with the reviewer citing the great value for money and good performance as plus points for the drive.

The M500 range also includes a terabyte-class 960GB SSD, with exceptional read/write performance and improved command latency. Dramatically faster than a hard drive, the M500 range isn’t just a storage upgrade, it’s a complete system transformation.

With nearly instant boot times, top level hardware encryption technology, advanced controller technology and custom firmware, extensive quality and reliability testing, and a three year limited warranty, the Crucial M500 range is a market leader.

Ryan Martyn, Director of Syntech and the President of EO Cape Town (Entrepreneurs’ Organisation) says: “Crucial is a fantastic addition to our storage offering. We look forward to being the premier storage solutions distributor in South Africa.”

The Crucial range is distributed by Syntech, and is now available for purchase via resellers. You can contact Syntech via e-mail on [email protected], on the Twitter handle @syntechsa, or via Facebook –
