1.    Typical I/O performance numbers as measured using CrystalDiskMark® with command queue full and write cache enabled. Fresh out-of-box (FOB) state is assumed. For performance measurement purposes, the SSD may be restored to FOB state using the secure erase command. System variations will affect measured results. 
2.    Some of the storage capacity is used for formatting and other purposes and is not available for data storage. 1GB equals 1 billion bytes.
3.    Speed comparison are between Crucial P3 Plus published top speeds of 5000MB/s and the fastest published Gen3 speeds for NVMe SSDs, at 3500MB/s.
4.    Micron reserves the right to transition between NAND series during future production cycles.
5.    Warranty valid for 5 years from the original date of purchase or before writing the maximum total bytes written (TBW) as published in the product datasheet and as measured in the product’s SMART data, whichever comes first.
6.    SSD speed comparison between Crucial P3 Plus NVMe SSD top read speeds of 5000MB/s and Crucial MX500 SATA SSD read speeds of 560MB/s.
7.    OEM warranty statements are only applicable to customers in the U.S. Some manufacturers have reserved the right to void warranties, based on their discretion.
8.    Based on published PCIe Gen4 sequential read speeds of 5000MB/s compared to published PCIe Gen3 sequential read speeds of 3500MB/s. PCIe 3.0 throughput is 1GB per second per lane, yielding up to 32GB/s of overall bandwidth. PCIe 4.0 is double that, yielding up to 64GB/s of overall bandwidth.
9.    SSD speed comparison between Crucial P5 Plus NVMe SSD read/write speeds of 6600/5000MB/s and Crucial MX500 SATA SSD read/write speeds of 560/510MB/s.
