    As usual, the drive capacity is rather less than the 1TB description suggests, because of drive manufacturers’ habit of using misleading terminology that looks better (the drive should be described as 1TiB but isn’t); it’s actually about 931GB. That said, the drive is so far performing perfectly, and has made a substantial improvement to the performance of my seven year old Fujitsu laptop running Windows 7. Boot-up to a usable state now takes little more than a minute, whereas it had been taking ten minutes or more. Cloning the old HDD was simple using the Acronis True Image software supplied as a free download through Crucial’s web site, plus the USB to SATA cable which has to be purchased separately. The kit includes an adaptor plate for mounting the new SSD in place of a thicker HDD, but it was not needed on this occasion. Having installed the new drive the computer restarted as if nothing had happened, except for being so much faster. Pricey (although less so than when I first…

    The Good:
    Cloning my old HDD to the new SSD was easy with the free Crucial software from their website. Faultless transfer ( I used a Sabrent USB 3.0 to SSD / 2.5-Inch SATA I/II/III Hard Drive Adapter EC-SSHD)and then swapped out the HDD for the new SSD in my laptop.
    Windows 10 then ran through a basic setup, as if a new install, and I was up and running in a few minutes. As I have a digital windows ID, it automatically registered. If you have an older version of windows, or no Microsoft account set up, you will need your Windows licence code.
    The Bad:
    After a few minutes I got a blue screen of death. The computer would not restart. After half an hour I finally got windows to boot again. I think the drive was overheating, causing it to crash. I had put my original HDD back, and noticed the SSD was really hot to the touch.
    My first thought was that a problem in the cloning process was causing errors. I wiped the SSD and fitted it again, then did a fresh clean windows install. This went…

    I have 10TB worth of Crucial MX500 SSD’s made up of both 1TB and 2TB variants. I edit 4k footage at 60fps 150mbps all day and find these drives to be absolutely amazing for the money (£209 for 2TB over the Black Friday period and £130 for 1TB Summer 2018) I’ve pasted this review across both variants.

    I’ve also installed a 1TB version in a gaming rig as a system drive. The machine launches to Windows 10 in practically the same time as my editing system which has 3x WD Black WDS512G1X0C NVMe PCI-e SSD’s as a system drives, allegedly upto 5x faster read speeds than Crucial SSD – without enabling Raid. Yes, NVMe drives are quicker at sending files to each other but I’d not bother with them at their current price over a traditional SSD, the diminishing return is colossal. There’s next to no difference when editing between SSD and NVMe using a system comprising of 1950x (16c/32t) CPU, 64GB DDR4, GTX 1080 TI.

    I hope this helps.

    I needed a new hard drive for my laptop which was not running well because the solid state side of the hybrid drive failed, I usually purchase seagate or Samsung kit but money being tight opted for this one… In short I wanted a clean install, windows found this ssd but failed at the partitioning point saying the ssd was too small at the second attempt failed to find the drive altogether. I rang support because live chat was down at Crucial tried everything suggested but the bios couldn’t even see it. So I returned it to amazon and ordered the equivalent Samsung ssd next day delivery this was then installed loaded with windows and running within 2 hrs of delivery… brilliant service from amazon excellent drive from Samsung but I don’t think I’ll be heading back to Crucial anytime soon, maybe just bad luck, who knows, so basically I tried to save a few quid and ended up spending out twice, 🙁
