    Crucial SSD Desktop Install Kit

    Install a Crucial SSD in a desktop PC with ease

    Installing an SSD in a desktop PC is easy, but it sometimes requires a few special supplies, which is why we created this kit. Included is a SATA-to-USB cable that you’ll use to transfer data from your old storage drive to your new SSD, a SATA-to-SATA cable that you’ll use to physically install the drive, plus a bracket you’ll use to install a Crucial SSD to your desktop’s storage bay. If you’re installing an SSD into a standard OEM desktop (HP, Dell, Lenovo, etc.) you’ll also need a 2.5-inch to 3.5-inch converter, which allows you to secure the SSD to these particular systems’ larger storage bays.

    PRODUCT HIGHLIGHTS
    • Designed for first-time SSD installers with desktop PC systems
    • Includes a USB-to-SATA data transfer cable, SATA data transfer cable, 3.5-inch adapter bracket, and mounting screws
    • Ideal for use with Crucial 2.5-inch SSDs
    WHAT’S INCLUDED
    • Acronis® True Image HD data transfer software
    • SATA data transfer cable
    • USB-to-SATA data transfer cable
    • 3.5-inch adapter bracket
    • Mounting screws
    • SSD sold separately

    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 would have rated this product maximum stars if it weren't for the absolute lack of clear guidelines. If only someone at crucial would take out an hour of their busy schedule and write a few numbered steps of how to clone a drive for a particular operating system, it would be a perfect product. That hour would be way better spent than the videos they have out there that are confusing and on top of that, outdated.

    For those interested: this product does not come with a bootable Acronis CD. However, you can make your own bootable media from the provided software (which you will download).

    Cons

        IF YOU HAVNT GOT A SSD DRIVE YET, WELL LETS JUST COMPARE THAT USING THE OLD 5.5" FLOPPY DISK. IT IS THE WAY TO GO,NO DOUBT!

        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

        By This_is_me

        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.

          Hard Drive change

          My first time to attempt a hard drive change and this software made it go flawlessly. I don't think it could have been easier.

          Included software destroyed mt drive and data

          By JB

          from WA

          Verified Reviewer

          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.

            SSD installation went off without a hitch!

            By BTE

            from Louisville, Ky

            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.
