Boot time on my laptop went from 5 1/2 minutes with Windows 10 to 1 1/2 min. Everything is MUCH faster. I did have had a problem using the Acronis for Crucial drive software that they provide. Support immediately sent me a fix, which allowed the software to run HOWEVER I wasn't able to use it because of the my disk sector size wasn't compatible for the software to clone from. I again called support and they immediately guided me through an alternate way. This is one time that a call to a Customer Support group really was a pleasure and more importantly - FAST.
With my Mechanical HDD it took 2 mins to boot into windows 10. with this simple upgrade it takes 12sec. No kidding and Crucial made it easy with Acronis True Image included to clone the drive.From start to finish the upgrade took about an half hour. Thanks Crucial
I bought two MX500 SSDs and installed them in my two old HP and Dell laptops and they really improved the bootup speed. Installation was straightforward, especially due to the video provided on Crucial's website. I also increased memory in both systems and now they run much better, almost like new. I plan on using these for a few more years now. Definitely worth the money, and less than what I would have spent on a new laptop.
The boot time is much faster.
Installed this SSD to replace a friend's laptop HDD where Windows had corrupted. Given that the laptop is taken back and forth to the beach and could be subjected to bumps and shocks, recommended that we take the opportunity to replace the HDD with this SSD to drastically reduce chances of future issues with shock induced corruption as well as get a huge speed increase.
Hardest part of the install was gaining access to the Drive compartment in this device. The SSD connection and Windows installation was a piece of cake. Windows boots and runs MUCH faster now.
I got my Son a new gaming system for X-mas and decided to rebuild his old gaming laptop to use it for myself (non-gaming). I purchased a Crucial MX500 250GB SATA 2.5-inch 7mm (with 9.5mm adapter) Internal SSD to replace the very slow 640GB Western Digital 5400 RPM Hard Drive in my Son's old Asus G73JH-BST7 gaming laptop. I also purchased the SATA-to-USB 3.0 Cable from Crucial. I first installed a new copy of Windows 10 and deleted everything on the old Asus, and then installed all updates (drivers, etc...). I then followed the instructions from Crucial "How to install a Crucial® SSD in your computer" and cloned the Western Digital hard drive to the SSD using the cable and the Acronis True Image for Crucial software. It restarted and everything works fine, the performance speed is now GREAT. Note: I did not reinstall the original Western Digital hard drive to the second slot, I using the SSD for everything.
My Windows 10 pc was possibly the slowest starting computer I have ever owned. I heard that cloning my OS onto a Crucial SSD would increase startup time and also improve all other program performance. This is true....startup time for my Windows 10 pc is around 10 seconds. That is what I wanted when I purchased this SSD and that is what I got. Very happy with it at this point.
My first SSD, installed on an aging Win7 desktop. Immediate 50% better boot time. Programs loads instantaneously.
this dropped right into my older laptop and now it work beautifully, faster boot up, quieter, quicker out of sleep mode.
Just what I needed.
Their website is very helpful in determining the components for upgrading your system.
