Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replaced dodgy ones from other supplierI came to SSDs quite late and the first one I bought was a Crucial, about four years ago. In the meantime I'd bought another couple from another maker, which have let me down badly. I decided that I'd buy Crucial again, as the first one is still working perfectly, despite being used hard every day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly as advertised!My Mac Mini was sooooo slow after a year or so. An hour of work ( going slow because I am NOT experienced with this stuff) it's a hot rod! Can't believe the difference! Make sure to have the srt (Torx security) drivers with hollow ends before starting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Haven't installed but already one star downI'm sure I'll add to this review once I'm able to get the SSD out. For now, I have to wait till I get a SATA to USB cable. That Crucial item should be mentioned all the times the web site brags about how easy the cloning process is. Yes it's mentioned in the install guide but I didn't review the install guide before buying.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Be sure to give your NEW SSD a Letter Drive NameI had a huge problem getting this SSD drive to work in my Lenovo Edge 15. I cloned the drive twice to get the thing to work. After the second time, I gave up, and the following day, I went onto Crucial's website for support. They only offered chat, so I gave it a try. They were not much help, making me run around in circles trying to figure out what the issue was. After many hours of struggle, I finally figured out why the new SSD would not load my Windows operating system. Lenovo's OneKey Recovery software was booting up because the SSD did not have a drive name associated with it. It was a simple fix, associate a letter drive name to the new SSD drive and everything worked out great. So much faster than what I had. I am happy with the product, but not so much with their options for support.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy install and very fastThe instructions may need to be updated. It looks like my MacBook Pro does not support the recovery of a disc connected via USB. I had to use a 3dr party disc copy, Carbon Copy, worked great the first time. After that install and function was great! My machine after the new SSD and 16G of memory is faster than when it was new. For under $200 you have brought new life to an old MacBook Pro.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Planning to upgrade with more unitsFirst of all, the price is the best you can find for this fairly new technology; fast shipping, plenty of support, but you have to search out some things you might need. Is not crystal clear in the literature, but the cloning software is downloaded from another site. The software, once you find it, is comprehensive and almost foolproof, but again, for a fairly major hardware replacement like this, take your time to work with it. "Slow is smooth, smooth is fast." Firmware update is great. Bottom line? Older computers will have new life for many more years. If you like what you have and want to keep a familiar footprint, this is about as good as you could hope for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wish I could give a flat out reviewAfter installation with another SSD, bought previously, my laptop functioned like lighting in a bottle, 13 hours later my laptop couldn't find any hard drives, couldn't detect any boot device, after 10 hours of troubleshooting the only time it saw any thing was in legacy mode, and if you know ssd's they won't run in legacy. So it ended up with me having to wipe drives and reinstall everything. Not sure why that this happened or how. But over all my experience with the product, was a little difficult to install, seemed a hair thicker than it should of been, but installed and read with no issues, though I can say crucial software would not read my hp Notebook-15-bs0xx aka HP Notebook Jaguar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great in a 2010 iMacInstallation had it's "challenging" moments - iMac's are not the easiest machines to get into (getting the display out and back in is a pain - you just have to take your time). And figuring out how to best place the drive and the 3.5" adapter took two trys (hint: everything goes in upside-down). Lastly - just short the pins on the temperature sensor (that's what Apple does if you get an SSD). In the end, everything worked out - the drive works wonderfully. The bottom line - the machine is faster. OH - and don't forget to enable TRIM support in OSX (google for instructions - it's not difficult).

The cloning process seems to work fine then when I install the drive my computer just can't seem to find it. Anyways I call tech support to see if this is something we can figure out and about 3 minutes into the phone call this guy hangs up on me. I call back and the same thing happens. It was a lame experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A fine adventure!Got 2 of these SSDs. Setting up the first one was quite the adventure! We run mainly Kubuntu but retain the Windows that came with the boxes, which was lucky since the cloning tool runs only on Windows. Some lessons learned over many attempts:* Be sure Windows is completely up-to-date before beginning, otherwise it will be updating in the background and interfering with the cloning and partition-editing processes. Best way to do this is to "update and shut down" multiple times until it stops saying "...% complete. Do not turn off your computer."* Beware: Unless the SSD is exactly the same size as the original disk, don't use the"Automatic" setting to clone the disk. Use "Manual" and specify "As is" so the partition sizes are preserved. Use other tools to adjust partition sizes and placement as needed after installing the SSD.* The process will likely break the boot loader if dual-booting. It's simplest to blow away the Kubuntu partitions, re-partition, then install a fresh Kubuntu and restore user content from backups.It took starting over perhaps half a dozen times to learn these and other lessons, but in the end we migrated two machines to SSD and have everything working just fine.The guidance from Crucial was very helpful, though I had to do a bunch of web-searching to resolve boot-loader issues and find a partition editor compatible with Windows. Fortunately, I like tech troubleshooting, so the many days I spent getting it all working were fun for me. Those who are running only one operating system will likely find the process much simpler, especially if the OS is Windows.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crucial 500 gb hard drivesI replaced 2 analog hard drives with 500 gb solid state hard drives in my wife's and my notebook computers. I see a big difference in boot time and opening programs. I backed up files from both machines prior to install and reinstalled files once the new drives were installed. I had no idea how slow my old drives were until I updraded to solid state drives.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very cost effective upgradeThe Crucial MX500 SSD module is compatible with standard 2.5 inch drives. An adapter is required for 3.5 inch replacements. The ease of installation depends on the device being upgraded, laptops needing more attention as opening the case can be more time consuming and risk breaking some plastic clips. Installing an SSD is by far the best way to extend the life of a laptop or desktop, unless upgrading to Windows 11 as computers older than 4 years are unlikely to be compatible with this OS and most newer computers will have an SSD.
