Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect upgradeA super easy upgrade for my ASUS U56E. Everything I needed to do the upgrade was in the box, including the spacer, SSD, and instructions. Needed to buy the SATA to USB adapter to do the data transfer, which worked extremely well. Machine now runs super fast, boots in a 1/4 of the time (less than 10 secs) (Windows 10)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good SSD, features, and software.I finally took the plunge and bought the MX500 500GB from Crucial, after holding out and continuing to use hard disk drives all these years. I am pleased with what I see in features and performance, and there is a 5 yr warranty to make me comfortable should there be any issues going forward. I bought a second MX500 for another computer. Have used Crucial memory for years and always been happy with that. The Crucial - Micron version of Acronis True Image software works great, and so does the Storage Executive software. My only remaining wish would be to include the ability to run the "trim" function manually from within Storage Executive for use in Windows 7.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW!I swapped out my regular 500GB hard drive on my i5 laptop with a Crucial MX500 SSD, and I have never before experienced any computer upgrade making as big a difference in a computer. I have upgraded desktop computers by adding an SSD as a boot drive, but with my laptop, the Crucial SS is the only drive, and now everything POPS! Boot, programs loading, everything. Wow, what a difference.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Restored old laptop to like-newOne quick word of warning - if you're replacing a hard drive that has corrupt file issues, those issues will be transferred to the new Crucial drive if you use the Acronis disk cloning software. After I quit messing around, and did a fresh reinstall of Windows 7 Pro on my old HP 4530s, the results couldn't have been more stunning. I can't provide detailed benchmarks, but the Windows Performance Index number for the hard disk went from 5.9 to 7.9 (max). The laptop seems to run a whole lot cooler now. Very seldom does the fan kick into high speed, and when it does the air isn't hot enough to bake a batch of cookies as it used to be. Between the addition of this hard disk and the 8 GB of Crucial RAM that I installed a while ago, the old HP is great performer.

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).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SSD failed and customer service has been poor so farThough my past experiences with Crucial have been good, this one has been very bad. The SSD failed within the first week. When reaching out to Crucial, the customer service rep asked a few questions to confirm it was a failure. After answering and explaining I even took the drive into a local repair shop who confirmed it had failed, the rep still wanted me to follow troubleshooting steps from the website. When finding out it would take an hour and explaining I didn't have that time, the rep's response was "This is much faster than the warranty replacement which can take 1-2 weeks.". When then repeatedly asking for a link or document about a refund, rather than warranty replacement, they would not provide that and continuing to tell me that if I did not complete the troubleshooting steps there may be fees taken from the refund and asking for more information. I ended up having to disconnect from the rep without getting the issue taken care of at that time. Since then I've been able to try the troubleshooting steps, but they didn't help. I will try to update about this when it wraps up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MX500 causes my computer to freezeI installed the MX500 into an open 2.5" slot in my laptop to use for storage. I installed it, initialized and formatted it with no data on it. My computer began freezing randomly for 1-3 seconds. I pulled it and tried another SSD and an old HDD. Neither caused freezing. Tried the MX500 again with the same freezing. I tried running Crucial's program to make sure it was current with no improvement. I contacted customer service about it and he told he he heard about it but no fix for it. It worked fine when connected via USB.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SSD significantly improved boot time, cloning didn't workMy laptop literally went from a 10-minute boot time (no, I'm not exaggerating) to a 20-second boot time. I'm very happy. The only issue that I had is that the cloning software did not work. I cloned the HDD twice using the software provided by Crucial, and both times laptop would not boot up. I eventually cloned the HDD using EaseUS (free tool) and it worked perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would give it a 5 star............butThis is the second MX SSD I've installed. The first was a 1TB on my primary laptop where I cloned the HDD using Crucial's supplied Acronis download. Everything worked perfectly and now I have 6 second boots on that machine with super fast work on Photoshop. I was so glad I made the jump from HDD to SSD that I purchased this second MX 500GB for my backup computer. Unfortunately, before the second SSD arrived the HDD on the backup died. I tried everything, short of sending it in, to recover it but to no avail. The good thing is that I always save my files off the computers so no real loss. When the second SSD came in I installed it and loaded up Windows 10 Home. Should have gone Pro, but it's my backup computer and didn't want to invest more. I don't know why, but now I have 90 second boots on this computer. I don't know if it Windows or the SSD or both. Some sources say its Windows, some say it's the SSD. I've written to Crucial, but haven't heard back yet -- wrote Friday and it's only Sunday now -- just to be fair. Still I'm happy with the performance of both SSDs and now only time will tell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Possibly one of the smoothest jobs...Upgraded to the SSD. Once I got the right part, it was easy peasy. The advisor tool said the 250 gb was compatible (it wasn't), but crucial permitted me to exchange for this. The cloning software (Acronis) download and clone was seamless. Once I cloned, it literally took 10 minutes (3 of which was spent looking for a screw in my carpet) to remove, install and boot up. Great experience overall!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Its speeds are faster than advertised!I got this product because my HP Notebook 15-f387wm had a failing Seagate HDD (stock). I had a crash screen occur for no reason twice, which is why I thought the HDD was about to die. Fortunately, I had a 10-15 year old HDD laying around, so I installed it into my laptop. The laptop booted slowly, which was expected for an HDD that supported Sata I 1.5Gb/s. But after it booted up, the laptop did have a crash screen appear a couple of times, as expected. After that happened, no more crash screens. Just the occasional screen display flickering, but that's normal for an old HDD. With Amazon Prime, I bought the SSD for $60, excluding tax. After I received the SSD, I followed the installation instructions, which were quite easy to understand. When I booted my HP laptop with the SSD installed, it took around 20 seconds, which was expected. My laptop ran faster than it did when it was brand new! And with the monitoring software for the SSD, I was able to enable some settings that would significantly improve the performance of the SSD. When the laptop restarted, it booted in less than 10 seconds! After I logged in, I installed a software that tests the read/write speeds of the SSD. The results: sequential read speed was 971.1MB/s, and sequential write speed was 1,122.6MB/s! That is higher than advertised, which is perfectly fine! As for reliability, I'll be testing the SSD for any possible issues...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked perfectly; installation was moderately easyMy HP Envy laptop HD failed, and I followed YouTube videos to expose the HD. The Crucial pictures were good enough to show the connectors and form factor were correct on this replacement SSD. I did an on-line chat with a very knowledgeable service person who understood my situation and questions immediately and had authoritative answers. I asked about return policy, indicating that I wasn't sure I could do the installation right, and he said I could return within 45 days for full refund even if it had already been put into the computer. I ordered, and the replacement went smoothly. I was concerned about the connector to the motherboard, but the Linux installation recognized the SSD with no trouble and proceeded smoothly.

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 Excellent SSD!I really like the Crucial MX500 500GB SSD. This is a great replacement on my 7 year old laptop which had a fatal hard drive crash. Easy to install. Much faster. No more hard drive start, wine, hunt, stop noises. Laptop runs quieter, runs more efficiently, reduced fan running and laptop does not get as warm. Very happy with MX500 SSD. I highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommendedGreat product! I recently decided to upgrade my old hard drive and found this website, and I'm glad i did! Crucial made it super simple with the upgrade kit (sold separately) and downloaded software. They walked me through the entire process step by step, and even had live support on standby in case something went wrong. I will definitely be returning for all my future ssd needs, and I'm bringing all my friends with me. Thanks Crucial for a fantastic customer experience!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Noteworthy improvement in speedSSD arrived on time in perfect condition. Installation was extremely easy using a Thinkpad ultra bay caddy for the new drive. Included Acronis software was then downloaded and proceeded to use the clone disk function to copy everything from old drive. Copy was flawless and quick under 15 minutes. Took new drive out of caddy and placed in permanent drive bay and it booted perfect the very first time. Highly recommend the drive and the Acronis software. Could not have been any easier ! Now have 500gb upgraded from 320gb with reliability, improved speed and peace of mind with an SSD !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Jut what I neededThe new SSD mad an immediate change in my laptop. The computer went from taking a solid 5 to 8 minutes for boot up to less than a minute. Everyday usage has also improved greatly. Installation was easy and only one of my programs didn't work after the cloning process. Very, very happy with the results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy install and very fast boot upI used this drive as a replacement for my 4 year old HP laptop. Crucial's instructions for cloning the drive and performing the installation were straightforward and easy to follow.Using the new drive, my system now takes only eleven seconds to get to the Windows 7 login screen from a cold start. With the 5600 rpm disk drive that it replaced startup would normally take between a minute and a half to two minutes. Well worth the price.

This is something I plan to do about every 6 months.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great. Huge improvement in performance.I had issues getting my computer to recognize the new drive when attempting to clone to it. I had to try two USB to SATA connectors, the second I got by disassembling a portable hard drive. (The first worked on conventional hard drives, but not this one.) Then I had to format the new drive, but I still got a software error telling me I didn't have a Crucial product installed. Eventually I found a forum where someone had posted a technical solution which involved downloading and running a patch like program multiple times. But in the end, the great performance and helpful on-line selection program leads to a 5-Star review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Success!I purchased this SSD after talking with a couple of Apple employees who told me that my "vintage" machine is in such good condition that I could get a few more years out of it by replacing the existing hard drive with an SSD. I also got more RAM. My 7 year old MacBook Pro feels like it's brand new! It runs great and I'm so happy that I made this decision. It was easy to replace on my own as well. A friend had the tiny screw drivers and all we had to do was take the back of the machine off and replace the parts. My daughter has a similar machine that is newer than mine and also has the same slow issues so now I'm trying to convince her to replace the same parts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy more of these when needed!!These drives are very light weight, fit perfect in all laptops I put them in and the software that clones the original drive is amazing. Install and run, choose automatic and sit back and relax, in a short amount of time (depending on the amount of data to copy) you have a prefect cone to swap out and fire up with ease. Boot time is much faster even in a old Pentium chip laptop, still runs a bit hot but that's just the processor trying to keep up with the state of the art drive. Must buy if looking, awesome product!!
