I was able to upgrade the Notebook by myself without having to have special skills. I followed simple instructions I found in internet about how to restore a disk image. I also found a video indicating how to open the notebook and install the new HDD.
Still haven't installed this. Ordered it but Crucial was vague about when it might arrive. Ordering process was confusing as I needed it right away to install and leave the country for work so I paid extra for expedited shipping. They called and informed me that all HDs were sent in 3-5 days from someone else. Don't know if I ever got credit. As the online tracking could not tell me when or where it was, I bought another from Staples and installed. Then, miraculously, the Crucial one showed up on doorstep without warning or notification. It is still sitting in box as a backup. Disappointed.
I installed this HDD in a Toshiba lap top and
worked fine. Has faster data transfer rate than the old HDD and hold a lot of files.
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.
I am sorry for the issues that you have experienced with your drive. At this point I would recommend contacting us directly so that we can help you with any trouble shooting and any questions you may have. Our contact information is in my signature. I am sorry for the inconvenience.
I bought 2 x MX100 256GB SSD drives.
Both when plugged in fail the SMART 180 attribute on starting the computer.
I have tried them both in 2 different PC's (HP XW4300 and HP Z200), and the error is the same on both computers and on both drives.
I have tried emailing for support with no luck..
Has anyone seen this type of failure before, and do I need to get the drives replaced?
Any assistance or thoughts appreciated.
I had Samsung drives previously and never had any issues at all.
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.
