    I have been using it with a USB 3 enclosure on my Xbox One X for more than 6 months now and it is brilliant for that purpose.
    Significant speed improvements when loading games but also when I back games up to other external drives. Wtite speeds north of 100 MB per sec while copying.
    After many hours of use it only gets marginally warm, far less than a spinning drive.
    For the price it offers a great upgrade for both speed and capacity.

    I replaced the old slow disk drive in my Acer Aspire 5742 with the 1TB version. It works well and the performance of the laptop is hugely improved. It went from booting Linux Mint in 1min 40sec down to 23sec !!

    I highly recommend this SSD for improving the performance of an old laptop with a spinning disk drive. The only suggestions I have are –

    1. Get a USB SATA cable if you are going to replace an existing drive as it doesn’t come with one.
    2. Use Macrium Reflect (I used the free version) to clone the drive if you have a dual boot configuration. The Acronis software that Crucial provide links for did not like the Linux partitions.

    Bought this as a supplementary drive in a base unit on my Mac mini. Perfect for the job, simple push fit install and immediately up and running. Easy to set up Time Machine backups locally and also a partition for the remainder of the drive to be used as additional storage. Good value so very happy.

    I get through laptops and computers – more than any sane person should. This is my go-to drive for upgrades – cheap, fast enough, reliable, and easy to install. If you want an immediate and noticeable improvement to the speed of your computer, this will do it. Startup times are very noticeably quicker and operation is quieter. I’m sure others are equally as good, and if you’re an aficionado, you’ll probably look down your nose at this – it’s not the latest, greatest NVME stick. True, but it’ll work in any computer that has a 2.5 bay, and does not need a degree in computing to figure out if the NVME is supposed to be SATA or PCIe, or M.2 or size 40 or 80 or 120 , or blah. Save yourself the effort – this’ll do. You also don’t need a bunch of adapters to make it work – it just works out of the box.

    Good quality hard drive, does have some problems, I feel like the hard drive feels a bit flimsy, so I’m not sure how good it would be to carry without a case. Looking closely at the contact patches, seem low quality, but it was a low price, so we will see how the quality holds up.

    I, like many other reviewers, have either received a piece of defective junk, or these are simply junk. The drive doesn’t come with any extras, you only get the drive itself in a blister pack. That’s fair enough, I didn’t expect to receive any screws or cables, I didn’t pay for any extras. The drive was recognised by the BIOS, but not the OS. The disk could not be initalised successfully. The software available to download for disk installation would also not recognise the drive. I did manage to get Acronis Professional 2021 to recognise the drive, but was still not able to format or clone the original. I also tried several other disk installation/cloning software packages with no success. I managed to get it to about 40% on one occassion before the software prompted for a restart. Upon restart the drive had disappeared again! I’ve tried a new cable, channel etc. but it’s just no good, it ain’t going to happen. I suspect a defective drive, however, after reading some of the other…

    OK, hard drives, and even SSD fail. I get that, and that’s why I back up regularly. I was using this disk solely for my home folder in Linux so it’s not like it has the OS on it. After six months, and with no warning, it stopped working. PC froze and would reboot but wouldn’t let me log in as obviously the home folder could not be found.

    I’ve bought a lot of Crucial stuff in the past, RAM and SSDs. I was re-assured by the three year warranty they state on their site. However, only a fool would send a hard drive full of personal data to a complete stranger, so, with everything from scans of medical records, kids’ school reports, passwords etc there was no way I could send this back. For all I knew all the data could be intact and it could just be a power or transfer issue.
    I thought a company specialising in data would understand this. I offered to show a video of it failing to mount with the USB to SATA cable I had to buy to troubleshoot it to prove I wasn’t fraudulently after a new…

    Bought to replace a HP Pavillion G6 Laptop 500GB HDD. Fit perfectly in HDD Slot (after adding the Sidebars and Rubber Spacers from the OLD HDD(4 Screws)). Used Acronis to Clone the Drive but I had to install the SSD in the Laptop first because of the error message ‘Unable to Lock Disk. Boot Your Computer From a Linux Based Bootable Media). But this was easily sorted by externally connecting the removed existing HDD to a Sabrent SATA 2.5 to USB Cable and it worked fine . Took approx 2hrs for the full clone and when I removed the Acronis USB Loader (I reconfigured the BIOS to bootup from the OS Boot Loader / SSD Drive) and it booted in no time perfectly and everything loaded. The Extra Space (above the 500GB cloned) from the SSD was simply added as an extra Partition. My laptop is now much much faster, quicker Bootup times by far and is now a Quieter laptop.
    (*No additional drivers were required using Windows 10).
