These hard drives are fine. Just the drive didn't work with the systems in the 2 previous reviews is not a good reason for a low rating.
I installed this HD on a HP P6230y and come to find out my motherboard can't deal with the 3 TB, looks like I'm going to have to replace it with the 2 TB. I hope Crucial will note give me a hard time.
This product was recommended as an upgrade for my mac and it only reads 780gigs of 3tb. Kinda disappointing.
Thank you for contacting us today. Installing the SSD is also fairly straightforward. You can either clone your current data to the SSD or do a fresh install. You will need to find a special bracket to ensure that the SSD fits into your Mac properly.
There is a big advantage to upgrading to an SSD, because you will have no moving parts and you will notice a huge speed increase. The extra speed should future proof your system a bit.
Please let me know if you have any other specific questions about this upgrade.
Any thoughts or pointers would be hugely welcome.
