    Purchased this to replace the 480GB SSD that was running low on space. Even with having the 480GB SSD installed for only 2 years the speed difference between the 480GB and 1TB SSD is noticeable. The new 1TB SSD knocked 1 second off the W10 boot up time (15 seconds). This new SSD will keep my 5 year old netbook in the game for a few more years.

    OK, first I have to say it was totally my fault to purchase the wrong SSD, our IT requires non-encrypted drives and uses software encryption so in the end I bought the wrong drive. With that said... first this drive does not allow you to disable the hardware encryption (there are some out there that do) and second, when I tried to install it following the instructions for the software to create the image of my hard drive onto the SSD drive, after the reboot it DESTROYED my hard drive data. Not bootable, no partition, gone. Our IT department was able to get the data off but the system had to be totally re-imaged from scratch.

    An Easy to Install SSD that SpeededUp My Old Slow Computer

    By Eric

    from Mountain Home, Idaho

    Comments about Crucial MX300 1TB SATA 2.5" 7mm (with 9.5mm adapter) Internal SSD:

    Wow what a great investment! This SSD went in so easily. I just downloaded the Acronis software that copied my old hard drive--no need for re-installing anything! Then popped open the hard drive cover on the back and swapped out the old hard drive for the new lightning fast SSD. I also used the included thickness adapter because this SSD will also work in those extra thin notebooks--which mine wasn't. That was it. Oh, yeah--there were a couple of suggested clicks that also helped even more. Get it!

    I have used Crucial RAM and SSD hard disk upgrades to improve performance and extend the life of several of my laptop and tower computers. All products I have purchased from Crucial have worked flawlessly. The included Acronis software for each SSD has made disk duplication a breeze.

    Purchased and installed this drive earlier this week. Installation was easy, as was setup. Moved data from the old drive to this one, reassigned drive letters and everything works as it should. Computer is quieter and backups are faster.

    I needed to replace a HHD in a used HP work station. The old drive was to small an could not be formatted. The new drive was easy to install . The process was tool less and literally a snap took about two minuets. Up and running in 5 minuets. I will do it again on other computers.

    I read many reviews abt Crucial and them being neck and neck with Samsung... I decided to give them a try... 1st in my dad's laptop to replace his Hdd... then after seeing tue speed me and my brother bought 1 for my mother's AIO pc.. she can't believe the speed increase on her budget system! So finally see if 2 very successful cases with Crucial I bought this 1tb version for my older Alienware 14 laptop to replace it's slow hdd! I'm more then impressed with the quality... speed.. and price! Customer service is amazingly friendly and helpful! Will be using Crucial for all projects and upgrades going forward!!

    I bought this for a T470 laptop and then when I opened found that it has a m-key based NVMe and I could not use this disk to copy as I dont have the SATA connectors.

    So I repurporsed this and replaced my son's mac mini the main disk and now mac mini late 2011 is having this disk and it works very well and Mac Mini is very fast !

    Comments about Crucial MX300 1TB SATA 2.5" 7mm (with 9.5mm adapter) Internal SSD:

    Bought 1TB ssd to replace 1TB hd == for my HP laptop -- device was correct and works flawlessly. Installation had 2 issues -- taking apart laptop (not a crucial issue but was tricky) -- getting ACRONIS cloning software to work -- had to call crucial twice -- run of software form initial instructions -- failed, called crucial and they sent instruction sheet two -- which also failed -- called crucial and they sent instruction sheet 3 which did work -- my suggestion provide all instruction sheets up from or on line.

    3 year old (Dell) Alien Aurora R4, amazing computer.
    The original HD started running 100% (Task Manager!) a lot of the time with system slow down.
    Signs of pending failure.
    Replaced with Crucial 1 TB SSD.
    More than doubled the speed of the computer........ noticeably faster than new on everything I do.
    Boot times close to 40 seconds.
    Task Manager now showing HD running under 2% most of the time. Even moments of high use return below 2% in seconds.
    Wow.
