    I took the plunge after a year of warnings that my hard drive was failing. I've never done a replacement before so I was looking for assistance. This kit is a must for novices who want to clone a drive.
    What it lacks is useful instructions. I went back to the Crucial site and watched a couple of videos about installation and they used this kit. So, I ordered it.
    Things went quickly and fairly effortlessly.
    In the end the new drive booted first time. But then I would get random crashes. No warning, no feedback on what was wrong. Control Panel would not load. A cold restart and things would work for a while.
    I eventually started removing programs that were running in the background. One of them was the cloning software. I don't know if that was the one, but since I was done with the transfer, I deleted it, among others. No more crashes. Was it the culprit? I have no idea, but I wonder why it was still running. Did I miss some step in the installation? I don't know but that is where some troubleshooting docs would be helpful.

    I am quite livid with the Acronis True Image software that is included. The software provides no instructions whatsoever. I followed the on screen commands to try to clone my drive. They neglect to mention I am supposed to create a bootable media and run off that, and not on the source hard drive.

    You'd think it is a good thing to warn people that this MIGHT destroy your drive. I didn't find all the KB on how to use it after my drive is messed up.

    Well now it completely destroyed the MBR and boot sector and I have failed at every attempt to recovery my data so far.

    Product worked

    By PRS

    from Idaho Falls, Idaho

    Cable worked great but the Acronis software made the cloned backup but then it crashed when it was used to boot my system. Had to get another third party software to do the cloning of my hard disk and do the repairs necessary to make it a bootable image.

    Complete waste of money

    from Macau, China

    Verified Reviewer

    Pros

    • None

    Cons

    • No Documentation
    • No Guidance

    Best Uses

      The product was a complete waste of money. We don't get any guidance, instructions, documents, tutorials, F.A.Q.s, manual or DIY help. In addition, the cloning software does not work at all. No migration of the operating system to the new drive simply didn't happen. And you don't get any help whatsoever or step-by-step guide of some sort to help you through the process.

        SSD installation went off without a hitch!

        By BTE

        Its like I have a new PC again. The new SSD + fresh install of windows 10 really made a difference in performance.

        Give an installation CD

        By Decline to State

        from Berkeley, CA

        Product seems to work well. It would have been nicer, however, if a CD of the cloning software had been included (like you guys used to do) instead of requiring your customers to go online to create an account to activate the software. I don't trust your privacy statement more than I can throw it.

        Poor guidance

        By Dave

        from Singapore

        the lack of guidance for the use of this product is its biggest fault. I had to use a combination of trial and error and a prolonged search for coherent steps for the upgrade and swap over to SSD.

        Super Power your computer and SAVE BIG BUCKS!

          Best Uses

            I purchased my Dell Studio 15 Laptop computer several years ago from a national retail electronics chain. Over the ensuing years, it functioned as was intended. But, as time went by I found that it was showing its age. It lost the ability to handle some of the newer updated programs, and to process at the speeds that it had when it was fresh out of the box.
            I was about to purchase a new laptop until I saw the prices that were being charged for a comparable computer. Then I read an article discussing the concept of replacing the present mechanical hard drive with a new solid state drive, in particular Crucial products, by Micron.
            I placed my order for both the Solid Drive and the Install Kit. Within several days both products arrived. The installation process was trouble-free with the guidance of the in-house telephone Technical Specialist "Zack". This whole experience left me with a very positive feeling. And a computer that is now operating better than I thought It ever could plus at a great savings!
