Rated 5 out of 5 by from Talk about fast - HP Pavilion Laptop 15-cc178dSwapped my 2 TB HD with the Crucial 2TB - cloned the drives - took less than a hour - now my HP flys - comes up 15 to 20 seconds ready to go - very fast response time - like getting a high performance laptop.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Swap for my PS4 SlimI like to buy most of my PlatStation 4 games digitally, and in doing so, a 1TB Drive can fill up pretty fast. After some research I stumbled across this Crucial MX500 2TB Drive, and noted the price. Was pretty much an instant buy. You will need the included spacer for the PS4, but the dimensions are perfect and everything lined up as expected.After Downloading my games, I would have to say I noticed a decent improvement in loading Digitally Stored games, maybe saves 5-15 seconds at launch (depending on the game), plus in-game loading is close to nonexistent. It has "some" effect on games played from the disc, especially when large files need to be installed on the machine to play off the disc. Note to those buying this for PS4... make sure you download the current software install from Sony onto a USB Flash Drive as you will need it once you boot this machine from a blank Hard Drive. The whole process from starting installation to seeing my home screen took all of 35 Minutes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great ProductI just recently upgraded my custom PC C drive from HDD to SSD, was a little nervous about the cloning process since it took 16 hrs. Once it was completed it worked like a charm, startup was half the normal time, desktop populated almost instantly. Was so impressed I bought a 2nd one two weeks ago to load my music samples. Would and will purchase again, the second purchase was $25 less than the first one-loved that. Would highly recommend this SSD. Now just have to setup a backup plan for my system. Word to the wise - - always backup your data files that you create in case something happens to your source.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely ImpressedOnce again, Crucial products rock!Easy to install, easy to clone the data, laptop booted up in the exact state as prior to starting the job, except it is now faster and runs a lot cooler.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy with Crucial MX500 2TB replacement of HDDIn replacing my failed HDD I moved to Crucial MX500 2TB drive for increased capacity and performance. Installation and restore to this SSD was efficient. Performance has been very effective over slower speeds that I was experiencing prior to my HDD failure. The CDW customer representative (Jay) was very helpful in narrowing down my choices and he engaged a technical specialist who could answer all of my technical questions about compatibility and installation for my desktop computer model.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple fix with a great ROI!Was experiencing massive slowdowns on a PC that wasn't that old and didn't want to invest in a new PC just yet. Beyond a bandaid, it's like a brand new system!! Crucial "suggested" a 1TB SSD but I opted for a 2TB since I was going through the motions anyway. Sooooo glad I did! I am not overly tech savvy but know enough for a simple DIY and this was easy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Faster and quieter than the hard drive it replaced.This SSD replaced the hard drive in my laptop. I had nearly filled the 1TB drive that came with the laptop so I needed to upgrade for more space. No moving parts in an SSD so it's quieter. It fit perfectly in the space for the storage drive and works as well as I expected it would.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product. Meets expectations.I use a Crucial SSD in both a laptop and desktop. Both work fine and are speedy. Be sure to find out if you need a separate install kit. I did for my desktop. Be sure to install the software.
