Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works perfectly with my Macbook (Aluminum, Late 2008)The higher performance of the SSD, versus the old hard drive that shipped with my Macbook, has brought new life to my 2008 Macbook. I was able to install El Capitan and start using it again, with much better performance. Installation was easy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Converted an aging desktop to like-new performanceOnce I installed and loaded the SSD, it made a noticeable difference in performance for every operation. I am very pleased. Additionally, I ran into some installation difficulties. The real-live, knowledgeable support technician walked me through the correct path to a successful install. Nice job all around.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from poor consumer purchase experienceWhile in their customer service announcement they recommend visiting their "award-winning" website, it is far from that. It seems that MAYBE minor error in the billing address caused them to reject the order EVEN THOUGH THE BANK APPROVED IT. A call to customer service indicated that MAYBE this was the reason but they could not tell me for sure for "security reasons." The agent "Sierra" said that she had herself never seen a website detect and error in the address provided. Difficult to believe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My first SSDThe short version is that I like the product and the Crucial website. This was my first SSD; I have used several Crucial memory upgrades over the years, with good success. I put this drive in an Acer Aspire TC-605 running Windows 10 "Home" (whatever that is). The OS and applications were put on the SSD. The original drive was retained to store media files, etc. This is as far as you want to read; the rest is just griping. The Acronis migration software furnished with the SSD, as a download, was irritating to use, partially crippled, and desperate to upsell. It was also glacially slow to apply filters to file selections. As you might suspect, I was never the sharpest knife in the drawer and, at 71, am well past my prime. With good reason I seldom hesitate to blame myself for technical struggles, but this software was NOT pleasant to use. My next SSD may be a Samsung, just to see if their migration software is better. Nah, I'd probably hate any migration software.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clone doesn't work on faillng HDDDon't know how the product works yet because I haven't been able to install it. The installation guide only talks about a trouble-free installation and doesn't mention the problems you might encounter with a failing disk - which is what a lot of people are going to be buying this for. And the help link seems impenetrable. I've found an Acronis discussion forum for the installation software but the help menu doesn't seem to connect to it. Would be very helpful if the instructions had guidance on what to do with a failed clone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally got the SDD into my computerNot that there were any big issues with the MX500, I stripped the stupidly soft torx 4 screws that hold the back of my laptop together. After I finally solved that, putting in the sdd was super easy EXCEPT that my laptop model (Asus Q524 w/ 2TB HDD) didn't have an actual chassis holding in the original HDD, so I just unscrewed 2 screws that who knows what they were actually holding onto inside the laptop, and the SDD fit right in, but the screws weren't the same size. Crucial did not provide a chassis/bracket either, so I just put the spacer under the SDD and plugged it in and closed up the laptop, hoping that the spacer would create enough resistance against the laptop casing so it won't move around. Fingers crossed. Other than that, the computer booted up way faster and all the programs worked, so cloning went well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes my old Asus x202E laptop better than newCan't believe the difference. No constant disk spinning and it boots fast. I was disappointed that the Acronis software didn't work and the instructions on the site didn't show how to determine which drives were incapable of cloning. I had to spend more time installing Win 10 from scratch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent value and performanceInstalled this SSD to replace a friend's laptop HDD where Windows had corrupted. Given that the laptop is taken back and forth to the beach and could be subjected to bumps and shocks, recommended that we take the opportunity to replace the HDD with this SSD to drastically reduce chances of future issues with shock induced corruption as well as get a huge speed increase.Hardest part of the install was gaining access to the Drive compartment in this device. The SSD connection and Windows installation was a piece of cake. Windows boots and runs MUCH faster now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better guide needed for extra equipmentI got the product really fast, and the price is fair, very happy with that. Being new to this, there are no instructions when purchasing that you need to buy a special cable to install. Now I've got a SSD, and struggling to find a cable elsewhere, so will have to pay the $10 shipping fee again if I want to buy from here, a little disappointing..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great improvementI have a Mid-2010 MacBook Pro that was just not keeping up anymore. It would take five minutes or more for it to be fully functional after start up. I replaced the original HDD for the Crucial MX500; I wish I had done this before; It seems as if I have a totally different machine now. This upgrade will give a few more years before I definitely have to get a new one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good SSD, Bad cloning softwareSped up my Laptop. Only takes 5 seconds to boot to startup screen now.

Use another cloning software and everything went smooth.

I did have had a problem using the Acronis for Crucial drive software that they provide. Support immediately sent me a fix, which allowed the software to run HOWEVER I wasn't able to use it because of the my disk sector size wasn't compatible for the software to clone from. I again called support and they immediately guided me through an alternate way. This is one time that a call to a Customer Support group really was a pleasure and more importantly - FAST.

This computer is 8 years old, and barring spilling beer on it, should last for another 8.
