Quality and Reliability Tested

When businesses and consumers purchase Crucial memory products, they know they’re getting a higher level of quality and reliability. The quality and reliability of Micron, Ballistix, Crucial and Lexar products is directly related to our extensive manufacturing and test process experience.

Performance Lab

Every product they produce moves through more than 800 processes. All of their products are individually tested for functionality before they are shipped and as part of this process, they have established two post-production labs to ensure that their products achieve high real-world performance from personal to enterprise applications.

In the Crucial Performance Lab, they perform hundreds of behind-the-scenes tests each year to dissect memory and SSD compatibility. Because of their close working relationship with computer manufacturers, they get early access to the latest chipsets and motherboards as they’re being developed. Before new products and operating systems are released, Crucial are able to work with OEMs to ensure that their products are compatible with existing and upcoming systems.
