Purchased this as an upgrade for my laptops old drive, it now boots up so much faster now. great product.
Used as a replacement for a Netbook, installed and upgraded to Linux from Windows. Only slight problem I found was that I originally tried to install it in a laptop with 512 block size - the SSD has 4k blocks. This is not detected by the checking programme on the Crucial Website and it is not possible to clone a 512 block disc to a 4k disc using the supplied software or any other I could find. You need to do a clean install from the OS discs and then reinstall all your programmes and copy your data !
Also the checking tool did not tell me my laptop computer already had a SSD installed. Ended up putting the drive in my Netbook instead.
Perfect upgrade to my old system.
Startup time has been reduced to 42 second.
Previously was nearly 4 minutes.
Really great hard drive. Totally transformed my machine.
My Acer E5 773 laptop has never performed well, what with the slow hard disk and the Acer bloatware. Eventually, I lost patience and bought a MX500, downloaded Windows 10 to a USB stick and installed vanilla Windows 10. The only real problem was taking the keyboard off to fit the SSD, not an easy job. Results were so good I have now upgraded my wife's HP laptop and brother's Dell laptop with similar success. Really recommend it.
My early 2011 mac book pro had slowed to an unusable level. After a diagnosis of dead hard-drive I decided to upgrade to a solid state.
Installing was easy, I followed the instructions given by crucial. Though they could have included how you needed to then format the hard drive once you boot the mac up, but that was easy enough to work out myself.
I now have my mac running High Sierra (I also upgraded to 16 GB of RAM) and its like new. Very impressed.
Read the instructions even before ordering, use the online compatibility tool to check. If your still up for it then order and when SSD arrives read the instructions again (!) copy the instructions onto another laptop or ipad so you can read as you move on. I did a file and photos backup, then clean install of W10. That re-loaded lots of apps and also provided a list of all apps removed, so easy to re-install the ones I wanted. Then follow the instructions.
Selected this using the handy tool on Crucial's website to replace the old HDD on my 2014 21.5" iMac 14,4. Once the iMac had been opened (plenty of online guides as to how to do this), swapping the disk was a doddle. Hardest part was reassembly. I temporarily connected old disk via USB and adaptor and was able to move over MAC OS and all user data using standard Apple tools (again, plenty of online guides as to how to do this) easily. iMac cooling fan is working as advertised, no need for adaptors or special SW. Most importantly the performance of the machine has been utterly transformed. Kicking myself that I didn't do this a couple of years ago.
Unbelievably fast after the experience of HDD drives, delivered promptly with ample fitting references if required. It was a doddle to fit and performs superbly. Thanks Crucial!
Purchased to see if it would speed up a 7 year old Dell PC that was driving me mad. I wasn't disappointed. Fast boot-up and now able to open programs within seconds of switching on. Easy to install - the install kit really helped.
