        Just a small box containing a USB-SATA adapter (USB3 as it seems) and a CD. The confusing thing about the CD is, that it seems to be blank - as indicated in the other reviews. However, it contains a bootable track that loads the Acronis software. Having found out that, it was a smooth operation, software is self-explaining.

            • To Use Product

            unit worked flawlessly but didnt have the right instructions nincluded with kit. I wasted about 3 hrs messing with it and contacted support - the next day they told me how to use the kit. I would have thought they would want to include better instructions with the kit - but thats confusing common sense with reality

                            I watched and waited until SSD prices decreased. Crucial's website had the tools to find a compatible SSD so I had the confidence that I'd be successful in upgrading my Dell Inspiron laptop.
                            The transition was straightforward and I'm amazed at the speed.
