Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bigs difficulties tinstalling this product. This SSD is used to replace old HDD. I made a clone of the HDD with USB port, but each time i plug the SSD inside computer, it crash with windows blue sceen. I call your support but i was unable t get any answer, nobody in support speaking well french, and unable to explain easily my problem. Finally, after many many tries, i found that this SSD don't accept AHCI boot, but only IDE boot, now this disk works but not in the best conditions. I continue to try to change from IDE boot to AHCI boot but without success for the timing. And nobody in your company to help me!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Such a difference Bought this to put in an ageing HP tower PC. Easy enough to install as long as you have an adaptor for a desktop PC and carry out a clean install of Windows 10. PC now boots up quicker than ever before. Programs install so quick. Windows updates now done in the blink of an eye. Virus scan takes a few minutes instead of a few hours. The whole thing just makes using my desktop a pleasure again instead of a chore. Definitely worth considering if everything else in your laptop/desktop is working fine. It should keep it going for another few years, at least until Windows 11 makes it obsolete!

Did not want to pay extra for software Crucial recommended to transfer OS and data from old to new.

Look at "SuperDuper" to clone your drive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OK unless you need support The Acronis software, which must be downloaded ONLY when the new drive is physically attached to your device would not install. I sent emails to both Acronis (Not our problem since it is a OEM version) and Crucial (Go to this website which has nothing to do with your problem). Tried contacting crucial by phone but gave up after holding for 20 minutes. Got the problem solved by downloading a free trial of Macrium Reflect 7. Worked like a charm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stopped working after 3 months This SSD stopped working after only 3 months. Suddenly stopped showing up on the drive list. BIOS and disk management can't see it either. Recovery software can't see it, even my linux machine can't see it as a drive. It is completely dead.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would not buy this product I just received and installed a SSD MX500 1TB to replace a HD for an HP Envy 17 laptop with Win10 64 bit OS. Cloning with Acronis True Image software as instructed apparently went without a glitch. However, after installing the SSD the laptop does not recognize the SSD drive. Appallingly, I was not able to reach the technical support line neither by phone nor web chat. Tried email support and waiting for a reply to my email! I need the laptop up and running ASAP! I rate this product ONE star due to poor technical support and compatibility issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product but less than straightforward installation Was thinking of replacing my PC (a Lenovo H520 running Windows 10) but this SSD (plus additional 4GB memory) has transformed its performance. However, installation process was less than straightforward: 1). Would have been useful to have been told I would need a SATA to USB cable (I also needed a mounting bracket since old was 3.5 inch) 2). Cloning software kept restarting machine without starting cloning process. I had to create a create a boot disk to run the process outside of Windows 10. No support was available from cloning software provider (Acronis) although there was some guidance on the Crucial support page. Issues related to UEFI (rather than BIOS). 3). There were also issues getting the cloned disk to boot on the Lenovo. Had to disable Secure Boot and enable CSM mode. Point 3 probably down to Lenovo but I would have expected more guidance from Crucial re 1 and 2.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works fine but there are a few quirks. I have a 2015 Mac running OS10.14. While diagnostics didn't find trouble with the original HDD, the Mac was way slow. Load times measured in fractions of an hour instead of fractions of a minute. Apple says that HDDs are not suitable for the APFS which is standard in 10.14 and later OSs. So I took the plunge in late 2019 and bought the MX500 1 TB SDD from iFixit along with the tool bundle (cards, pocket, pizza cutter, etc.) which is convenient, if not essential. The migration/cloning information at Crucial's website was, at that time, out of date and didn't work properly (for me, anyway). I obtained a CCC license from Bombich which worked smoothly. I should mention that Bombich recommends installation of an SSD before cloning; there have been reported failures to make a bootable SSD if the procedure is reversed. So I put the HDD into the pocket, connected the USB and started the Mac; it found the external HDD so I proceeded with the cloning. APFS automatically includes the hidden software to use Apple's Disc Utility to re-install the OS if necessary. However, earlier OSs do not but CCC does allow the user to manually do that part of the installation. As regards the SSD installation, the instructions (and comments) at the iFixit website are quite helpful. I would add only that the SATA cable in the Mac is short so loosening the adjacent speaker is almost essential. The replacement of the drive and fan took about 90 minutes, I didn't re-attach the display with adhesive strips. I simply used 4 pieces of clear packing tape at the corners. This was a precaution in case I had to tear the Mac down again. I would also suggest that one have a supply of canned air on hand to remove dust. It's wise to remove the fan so that one can clean the processor heat sink, too. The Mac's performance after this upgrade was astonishing. Boot-up takes a half minute instead of 2 or 3 minutes, applications load in 5-10 seconds. I couldn't be happier with the upgrade.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the investment I have an older Apple MacBook Pro that started to crawl with the mechanical hard drive that came with the computer. It got to a point where I was getting the Beach Ball of Death constantly while running well anything, the boot up time was getting exceptionally longer and none of the diagnostics I ran made the computer run any better. I decided to invest the money on an SSD and memory upgrade because I wanted to get a few more years out of the computer and now its running significantly faster! Boot up time now is about 20 to 30 seconds, compared to 3 to 5 minutes before the computer was usable. Software updates could take upwards of an hour or more depending on what was being installed. Slow downs, freezing, beach ball of death where way to common. Now after the upgrades I have a very usable and capable machine. The computer was fine when I first got it several years ago but I should of done this a year a ago. Yes the money was well spent and YES I would recommend Crucial products to everyone. In the past I have had very good experience with Crucial products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought two of these and am delighted It's a great product. I also purchase the Crucial Install Kit for 2.5 inch internal SSD because it comes with a USB - SATA connector that makes it easy for me to connect this drive to my PC. After backup or clone I can then put the drive away safely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Staple for performance per dollar It's at the peak of what SATA lll can offer and if this is the form factor you need it's hard to go wrong for an OS drive and for gaming there's very little benefit to spending more since the bottle neck will be elsewhere in the system. Just keep in mind this isn't ideal for repetitive large data transfers that general users would never do as that is a use case for NVME drives.

Replaced a 320GB 7200rpm HDD with this and added 8GB of extra RAM (for 12GB total) to a near 10yr old Dell XPS L502x inherited from my son. I don't use it a lot, hence reluctance to buy new but it does everything I ask super fast and will easily do me till Win 10 end of life. Sometimes I reboot it just to congratulate myself and marvel at how fast it is. Upgrade was very easy with recommended software and a USB to SATA cable. Forget about doing a clean windows install from scratch. If you enjoy that kind of pain you're on the wrong website. If you're considering that, just do a transfer of existing system to this and run the windows 10 fresh start instead - not the other way round like I did, before i decided i definitely wanted an SSD.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Boot time went from 2.5 minutes or more to 30 seconds SSD was flawless, Adapter kit not so much, USB to SATA plug in was defective and clone would not work, changed to another adapter and clone required about 40 minutes. Mounting adapter for SSD to desktop drive bay required slight modification, additional screw holes were drilled.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely worth it I have been thinking for a while about if upgrading the HDD in a ~8 year old laptop to an SSD was worth it or not - having decided to go for it, I can say it certainly was. Much improved performance, especially with start-up and loading applications, improved battery life and quieter. Disk cloning and physical install were quick and easy. Crucial's price seemed reasonable and I hope their reputation for reliability and quality prove to be correct.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the best thing I've done for my laptop! I had a little difficulty as it didn't work completely the first time (although all messages said 'successfully cloned'). Called support, they were great. Suggested I do it again, that it may need more than a couple tries. I thought I would be able to test new drive whilst drive was connected to the USB with SATA adapter, but this didn't allow me to boot from the new drive, so I kept trying to re-clone. Eventually I decided to try to install it and see if it worked. It booted up straight away! It's so much faster than my old HDD, which probably had errors. I'm so pleased with it. I should have done this a long time ago!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does not work as replacement for my laptop HDD I've attempted to use the acronis true image for crucial software to clone my laptop hard drive. It fails every time. I have gotten "fails to write" to sectors. Just plain old failures. Not very happy with the product so far. Not sure where to go from here. The SSD itself seems to be ok, I guess I just don't have the required level of experience. I was hoping my limited knowledge would be sufficient; I guess it is not.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm on my 4th MX SSD and all is good This is my 4th MX SSD and I use them for cloning hard drives for older computers that run Windows XP and 7. Everything has worked well for me using Aomei Backupper for cloning. I didn't have any luck with the recommended Acronis tool. As I said in a previous review, there is always the nagging question of whether it's worth it (if your hard drives are still working). That's because I haven't seen a significant increase in disk access (opening an application) or boot up time. And then there is that whole issue of "garbage collection" for SSDs. Bottom line, I would recommend the Crucial SSDs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This hard drive and new operating system allows my laptop to perform better than when it was new. This is my second purchase of the MX500 - SSD. I installed this one about 2 weeks ago in my Toshiba laptop. I then installed Linux Mint as the operating system, it's been flawless. The first one I installed in my wife's HP about a year ago, Installed Linux, and it has been flawless also. Both of our laptops are more than adequate for what we need, so the price of a hard drive is far better than a brand new laptop.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent replacement for an HDD for any SATA-based PC I have actually purchased two of these units to replace the old HDD on a Dell Inspiron 5000 series laptop and an HP Envy 24-inch all-in-one desktop. I had also previously replaced another HDD with an SSD from another brand on my old reliable Dell XPS M1210 laptop which is now 14 years old and still working. After having such a good result with the XPS and having so much trouble with the HDD on the Inspiron, which was replaced once under warranty from Dell, I decided to go ahead and install the SSD. It was specially mandatory after the 2nd replacement HDD simply quit working so I was left with a useless Inspiron 15 and Dell was only offering me to replace the 2nd HDD with a similar unit, and charging me money because they may need to use "some additional tools" for restoring the original Windows 10 license. Found some videos on YouTube about how to open the laptop, which is more complicated compared to the old XPS where you just open the HDD bay access panel and swap the old and new units. Anyway, after opening it was only matter of disconnecting the SATA bus, unscrewing the HDD craddle, replacing the old disk with the MX500 SSD and installing it again and connecting back the SATA bus. Close the laptop and then re-boot with an emergency flash drive which you can create from the Microsoft Windows 10 support page. The procedure automatically installs the operating system and makes all the necessary steps to connect to the Internet, get to your previously registered Windows 10 license and that's it. Since for several years now I have all my files conveniently backed up and permanently updated, I had no trouble in getting back to work. Indeed during the time the Inspiron was down I continued to work without trouble on the XPS which is my stand-by computer, so when the Inspiron went back to business it was easy. No loss of working time. Went ahead and ordered the 2nd MX500 for the HP Envy all-in-one and did a similar replacement procedure which solved its slow speed.

With Crucial's SSD I no longer wait for saving or accessing files on the drive, it is very fast. I'm pleased. I've purchased Crucial SSDs and RAM before. I like the thorough instructions with videos and the free Acronis software to clone the hard drive plus the scan tool on their website ensures the parts will work with my system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy this product again. Everything is fine now but simply put, this is my first rodeo with a 1TB ssd drive. I used to clone drives years ago but they were a lot smaller drives back then and thus simpler to deal with. Your representative RAJ was very helpful as he sent me instuctions which allowed me to finally clone my hard drive without errors. I tried twice and obtained errors when the program tried to write to the ssd drive before his instuctions and only cloned once after i recived his verbal and written instructions and without any errors. I simply made sure i had a clean drive to copy from with all updates and using the sfc.exe command to assure all system files were good. Please tell Mr RAJ thanks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Torture The Acronis disk-cloning software that came with the SSD would not clone my hard drive. It kept giving various errors. I would contact tech support, and they would have me try something else, only to get the same error or a new one. Worse still, the process finally appeared to run to completion without errors, but when I installed the SSD, the system would not boot because the clone process had not completed successfully at all! The only reason I gave this 2 stars instead of 1 is that Crucial did finally agree to take the SSD back and refund my money. However, I wasted 3 days trying to get this thing to work, the whole process was pure torture, and I would never put myself through it again.

True Image cloning won't work at all! I tried it 10 different ways and it kept having errors. I ended up having to do a clean install of windows. Because of this, I lost my windows license and office license. I had to repurchase Microsoft Windows and Microsoft Office. I also lost all of my previous computer settings and documents because of this. Previously I bought a solid state drive from crucial. It's works for a while and then went all black screen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FAST --Best upgrade you can buy Initially I could not get the computer to recognize the drive. I chatted with a couple of Crucial's technical support people but got nowhere. Finally I found out the Bios had to be updated, after this was accomplished the drive worked like a "dream," virtually every operation was significantly faster!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The difference is unbelievable... The difference is night and day. My machine wasn't slow, it took about a minute to get from cold and dark to a desktop, but now it's 15 seconds. Firefox now starts in four seconds instead of 16. The installation process, using the provided guidance online, was straightforward and pretty quick, and the software available was a breeze to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The difference between HDD and SSD is night and day Going from a 5400 RPM Seagate HDD to a Crucial MX500 SSD was one of the best decisions to make with the biggest impact on my laptops performance. Not only did my startup go from minutes to seconds the overall performance is so great that now there is virtually no lag doing anything, everything instantly opens and runs as good as it can get. The Crucial Storage Executive program that comes with your SSD on the website on the pamphlet has further performance options and information that is very impressive, things like Cache Momentum is something to turn on to even further boost the speed of your SSD. Although the boost is not that noticeable from my perspective but, it's always a welcome feature I hope to see more of in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Drive When I bought my pc, I was had a constant problem of running out of space on my main drive. At 250g of space, I was right. After talking with the techs at where I bought my PC, they suggested I look at this brand drive and go for this. After using this product as long as I have now, I am considering a secondary drive and retiring the drive I have in there now. I am quite happy with the service this drive has given me and will continue to use this product in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replace your old hard drive Unbelievable what this did for my I-3 PC's performance. Make certain you have an extra internal SATA cable set or you will have to buy a USB to SATA to install it, especially as your bootable drive. Use Acronis software to clone it that can be found on Crucial's site.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No Problem Install - Super Product I used this to replace my hard drive that used to take 20 minutes at times to boot and ran with 100% disk usage even longer. With the SSD, I boot up in less than a minute and programs open up much faster. I also ordered the Install kit which had the SATA to USB connection that was needed for the system Clone. The software needed to clone (included with the SSD) was a no hassle installation and ran without a hitch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I notice a big difference. The old ssd i had for my gaming desktop was only a small allot of space. Since i got this brand i notice the starting up the pc was quicker to the main menu. I'm glad i got this cause it's very great and able to hold a lot of save items and no issue tryna open anything.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I will purchase from Crucial again My laptop was a Christmas special with HDD, no ram and windows 7 upgraded to 8.1. My wife's laptop was also a special with no ram and an HDD drive. I upgraded my unit first and after ordering the adapter cable I transferred the data off the old drive, installed the new SSD drive and the ram chip. No problems and have upgraded to Windows 10. Wife's laptop was SO Slow she asked me to see what I could do. Ordered the new SSD drive and upgraded her Ram. Again, made the swap with no problems. Love it and recommend Crucial to my friends and family. Thanks! Duane

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked great I used this drive to upgrade and older machine with a Samsung 500 GB drive. The last time I tried to do data migration with Samsung software, it would not work. Therefore, I decided to try Crucial this time. The Crucial drive and migration software worked with ease. Crucial has a better warranty on its drive. Bye, bye Samsung. I have also tried Western Digital drives; all considered, Crucial works better. I did not test the speed of the drive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Jury's still out ... I've bought a couple of Crucial SSDs before and they've been fine. However, this time, the 1TB drive I bought failed to take the copy of my current drive, with the transfer failing with an I/O error. In the end, I formatted the drive completely, tried the transfer again and it worked. As I have my laptop backed up , I've installed the new drive. However, after a few days, all of a sudden it black-screened on me, basically saying it couldn't find the drive. Power down and back up, and all is fine. However, if it does it again, it's going back to Crucial ...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big improvement, but not an easy install It took a long time for the Arconis software to work. So much so that I thought I had received a bad drive. Good thing I found the crucial management software to convince me otherwise. The whole process took 3 days to prep the disc for the first install which ended up as a fail. Redoing it only took an overnight download and it worked just fine on the second attempt. The performance improvement over the old hard drive is impressive

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So much faster than stock hdd in laptop The install was easy. However didnt use the Crucial cloning software. The Crucial cloning software was incredibly slow. I dont mean the cloning itself, just getting from prompt to prompt took 20 to 40 minutes between clicks. The SSD itself is incredibly fast when installed. Great upgrade for anyone at 100% C drive usage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Supplied , but returned and no refund! After using the Crucial App to identify the SSD hard drive on my laptop, this was ordered as identified. When I went to install it was obviously the wrong SSD. The helpteam confirmed this and that without additional parts and modifications the SSD would not fit. They also confirmed that there was no way of securing the SSD if if the laptop was modiified. They sent me a recorded returns label which I used and tracked return back to Crucial. This was Novemeber 2023 and at January 2024 still no refund!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well, but wih it would have been delivered earlier. I thought and wanted it to arrive before the weekend so I could install it over the weekend, but it didn't. It does turn on the disk activity LED. Although it does consume more power than the HDD, the fan does not appear to be needed to provide cooling, therefore, with the HDD and fan, the laptop is overall much quieter. However, I haven't done a lot of intensive computing or video watching.
