This was so easy to figure out! The specific step by step instructions for my computer were just what I needed. The only reason I gave it one less star is because there were no instructions for what it to do once it booted up. You have to format the hard drive (or something to that effect). I found out what to do through a google search so nothing too difficult. The product was easy to install and is running great! Thank you Crucial!

I used Crucials hardware scanner to select both upgraded memory and a higher capacity hard drive for my new (refurb) laptop. This harddrive was selected as a fit/match and when I got it, I used EZ-GIG to clone my hard drive. However, when I opened my laptop (never having done so before, since Crucial has always been reliable in the past) I discovered that my laptop took a 1.8" drive, and not the 2.5" I bought. Wasted the money as I don't need another 2.5" drive for any purpose. I put it in an enclosure, and put it in a drawer. Oh well. Good drive. Bad Crucial experience.

Good hard drive and well worth the cost. However i wouldnt recommend using crucial. I paid for 2 day shipping which was not honored, i called and was assured that my shipping would be refunded; it was not. When the hard drive finally arrived 4 days later i found it in my apartment building lobby, opened, and with the wrong address on the postage. Rather than deal with customer 'service' again i decided to keep the hard drive which i have had no problems with. Great product, but i like my purchases to arrive on time (especially when i pay for it to do so) and preferrably unopened and addressed correctly. Never using crucial again.
This was a great addition for my computer. I have so much space now to put my movies on....
Can't match to product. Tech Service tired to help. Wrong Drive connector on disk.
i put this hard drive in my MacBook in less than 10 min,and it works great
I ordered the drive and it came on-time and was exactly what I wanted. I was surprised to find out that Samsung HDD are made by Seagate. But it was the same and it works great. The 1TB drive is a hard worker and runs near silent. We will see what happens when it has about 500GB on it. But overall very pleased.
CP specs state this is compatible with my mid 2010 Macbookpro 7.1, but it is not. I found this out after taking the computer and drive to the Apple store. OK, it's not so much CP specs that are wrong as the Apple folk took some time before coming up with the problem. Not all, but SOME of the 2010 systems with 2.4Ghz were never intended to use a 1Tb drive, and that means the OS will not mount properly.
Great Service! It fits perfectly with my laptop. Other than the late shipping, everthing was perfect!
Very satisfied with product and service.
This is perfect for my extensive audio book collection.
I recently purchased from Crucial an MX100 512gb SSD for my desktop computer primarily to give me more C-drive space (Asus P7P55D PRO running Windows7 on a 160gb Intel X25-M SSD). Using the Acronis cloning tool I successfully cloned the new SSD, altered registry and BIOS settings to enable AHCI, and installed the SSD. It appears to work perfectly – giving me the extra disk space I need and providing a welcome performance boost. I am delighted.
Encouraged by this relatively painless process, I decided to try to upgrade my ancient laptop – which is a Dell Inspiron 640m, running XP and without AHCI support. It needs more disk space having a mere 50gb but most of all it needs a major performance boost – particularly at boot time when it takes some seven minutes to boot to a usable desktop screen. I purchased an MX100 256gb SSD for this purpose (which Crucial's compatibility tool says should work), cloned my existing HDD to it using Acronis and installed the SSD in the laptop. However, Windows wouldn't load – giving me a blue screen error (0000007b) message which a google search tells me may have something to do with missing drivers. In my subsequent futile and random efforts to try to sort this out I think I have "bricked" the SSD!
I would like to start again with a new 256gb SSD for my ancient laptop which I would again purchase from Crucial but before ordering that would appreciate any advice or suggestions on how to avoid or otherwise deal with the blue screen error. Are additional drivers required and if so how should I obtain and install them? (Please note that I do not wish to upgrade the laptop to Windows7 or 8 - and am aware that I will not have the benefit of TRIM if I can succeed with the installation of an SSD into the laptop.)
Any thoughts or pointers would be hugely welcome.

I am sorry for the issues that you have experienced trying to contact us. We respond to emails within 24 hours, so I am not sure why you did not receive a response. Please pm me your email address and I would be happy to check into this further.
Have you experienced any issues with the SSDs besides this error? This article can help clarify some of the most common misconceptions about SMART data. If you aren't experiencing any issues other than that message I would not worry about it. Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns.
I too am considering this upgrade to SSD. This may seem trivial but try control panel, programs and features, windows features and untick internet explorer then reboot. Upon reboot go and retick the box to reinstall that feature. This has worked for me in the past when ie stopped functioning. Good Luck. Please let us know the results.
Ok I got it to work, but it's intermittent. I pulled the drive out, switched the type of HDD in the BIOS from AHCI to IDE. Then I re-installed the drive. This got me past BIOS. Then I go into BIOS, reset it to AHCI, and the drive works perfectly. I'm using it now to post this.
However here's the weird thing. If I shut down my machine, I have the same problem again, sometimes. Twice today I've shut down the machine and it's come back with no problem, twice it's repeated the same error I had before. That means to fix it, I have to open the laptop, remove the SSD, reset BIOS to IDE, let it boot, reset BIOS again to AHCI, then reinstall the drive and it works.
Any ideas to stabilize this now? How odd.
