fits well works fast - just what i wanted
The MX500 has been so far, very reliable. In my experience of this SSD, it hasn't faltered once as far as I could tell. Hopefully this continues to be the case for as long as I have it. It does what it's supposed to do and that's good enough for me. I suppose I'll have to see how long it carries on being reliable for in the future. If it continues for months and months to be as reliable as it's been so far, I'll be happy. In my opinion, everyone should have an SSD in their laptop/PC. Programs open very quick and close very quick.
I would never go back to a conventional Hard Disk. I would always use SSD's
... it would be delivered in 3..5 days. It arrived next day. I plugged it in and it worked.
A very good alternative to replace a faulty hard disk
Quick to reinstall Windows 10 - ages for the updates though but not the disk fault
I have installed Crucial SSD's on 3 devices now, each using Windows 10. The performance difference is unbelievable, notably so on older machines. I've easily added several years of usable life to these machines - I use one for media editing, one for work and I have just converted my young sons Lenovo Yoga (it was almost unusable speed wise before). The past couple of SSD installations I gave up using the supplied software - just errors (different problems on both installs). After hours of trying different things, just used another supplier's software and both times worked first time. That aside, would have no hesitation in buying a Crucial Drive again. Boot time is now a fraction, paging to SSD is obviously much faster.... they are like brand new machines.
I purchased this SSD drive with the hope of breathing life into a 5+ year old laptop running Windows 10. With the SSD upgrade and replacement of Windows (rubbish) with Linux Mint, the net result is a very useable machine. The Crucial SSD represents excellent value for money.
Laptop was agonisingly slow but now runs fast. Piece of cake to install. Helpful online service from Crucial in selecting the right SSD to buy.
In my desktop PC I had a Samsung SSD that was just over five years old and I was getting a MBR 1 Error message and intermittent screen freezes. I had tried an OS repair to no avail. Bought this Crucial SSD and problem solved. Very easy to fit, the included manual and online video walkthrough shows you how to install.
