Crucial BX300 datasheet
Ever wonder why your phone works as soon as you push a button, yet your computer takes forever? The reason is simple: Your phone runs on flash memory technology, while your computer runs on an outdated hard drive. It's possible – in fact, it's easy – to get the same near-instant speed you expect from your phone out of your computer. Upgrading to the Crucial BX300 SSD is perhaps the easiest way to get all the speed of a new computer without the price. When we say it's easy, here's what we mean.
Fix your slow computer and feel good about using it again! Load apps and save files immediately with the Crucial BX300, which accesses data over 300% faster than a hard drive.1 That's how you get the immediate responsiveness you expect. Changing your storage drive is the proven way to speed up startup times – making your computer start almost as soon as you press the power button and improving almost every aspect of computer performance.
Run your computer cooler, quieter, and faster with 45x the energy efficiency of a typical hard drive – and extend your laptop's battery life.2 Reducing system temperatures also helps lengthen the life of your computer and the components within it, which is an inherent advantage of SSD technology. Since SSDs don't use small mechanical parts that are prone to failure like you'll find in hard drives, they're an easy way to improve the health and efficiency of your computer.
Opening your computer and updating your storage drive can seem complicated and intimidating if you've never done it before, but our straightforward, easy-to-follow instructions and videos make it so anyone can install an SSD! Millions of people worldwide have chosen a Crucial SSD – it really is easy.
Easy decision: Replace your hard drive
Booting up, loading things, and transferring and saving files aren't complicated actions, but a slow and outdated hard drive makes them take forever. SSDs use new flash storage technology to make your computer work almost instantly. You don't need a new computer – just the Crucial BX300 SSD.

Easy installation and data migration. The HP Pavilion G7 has a new lease on life now.
Dell Model 3250 C:\ drive. Fast!
We have two computers that are about 5 years old. We use one in the living room for Internet TV access and one on my desktop. The slowness of the TV PC was driving us crazy, so, I was contemplating moving my desktop to the TV and purchasing a new one for me. But this all sounded costly. So, I decided an upgrade to the TV PC would be more cost effective. I first upped the TV PC's RAM to max and then added a 240GB BX300. All installed in less that 45 minutes including the cloning. Turned the PC back on and shazam! Not only was it 5 times faster, we could now watch our Netflix without interruption. I was so happy I decided to swap out my desktop with a new 540GB BX300.
If your current PC is of the SATA variety, I recommend you save your $$ and upgrade your memory and swap to an SSD drive for complete happiness!
Upgraded an HP 15 Envy laptop that is approx. two years old, operates better now than it ever has. The SSD hard drive was very easy and quick to install and a snap to load.
Great replacement for my smaller SSD and was easy to install. Only draw back was the Acronis software that came with it didn't re-adjust the sizes of the primary and recovery drives "automatically" as stated. But that was not the fault of the new SSD.
I have been saving to upgrade my mid-2012 MacBook Pro. We have our own real estate speed and I was spending a lot of time frustrated at how slow my laptop seemed to be. I was tempted to go ahead an buy the new Mac and got an email from Crucial.com telling about the new SSD BX300. It really got my attention. I had saved more than enough for this plan but was a little skeptical -- mainly about having to be sure I could do it and that if I did I would still have a working OS. :-) I am 56 and this is not what I majored in. I called Customer Support -- always a pleasant experience with the Crucial Team! I told them my concerns and they were so helpful. I placed my order and then the next morning realized I needed to check to see if I needed a cable - yep, SATA to USB -- ordered it. They both arrived over a week earlier than planned. 48 hours later and 2 very easy and helpful calls to Tech Support, mostly to confirm what I thought I needed to do and it is LIGHTNING FAST --- YES, I'm Screaming! I cannot believe it -- Thank you, Thank you, Thank you, Crucial.com for sending that informative email that has made my time on my computer so much more efficient.
