    Crucial CTSSDINSTALLAC reviews

    SSD Install Kit is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 104.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from SSD's are excellent! When I added one to my laptop last Fall, I was amazed at how much faster it became. I had thought I was limited my memory, but NO, it was disk speed. I had another reason to justify the SSD. I give it pretty rough use by carrying it under the seat of my truck on long trips on dirt roads in the Southwest. I have always worried about a mecahnical disk in those conditions although I never had a problem. I just added one to a desktop recently. The there was less speedup as would be expected. In the last few months, they seem to be able to preserve dual booting with Linux as well -- although I ruined it (knowingly) by changing the partitions quite a bit,

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Included software destroyed mt drive and data I am quite livid with the Acronis True Image software that is included. The software provides no instructions whatsoever. I followed the on screen commands to try to clone my drive. They neglect to mention I am supposed to create a bootable media and run off that, and not on the source hard drive. You'd think it is a good thing to warn people that this MIGHT destroy your drive. I didn't find all the KB on how to use it after my drive is messed up. Well now it completely destroyed the MBR and boot sector and I have failed at every attempt to recovery my data so far.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice improvement Used this SSD to replace the boot drive. Not so easy to install, but Crucial's kit, including Acronis True Image, and the conversion cable, made it much easier. Unlike swapping RAM, this can take several hours, depending on how much stuff is on the original drive. Also, don't forget to adjust the BIOS after installing. It would get boot errors the first several times until the BIOS was adjusted. Lighroom catalogs and photos appear more quickly without all the disk whirring, so that's an improvement. Also, bootup is noticeably faster, but not iPad-like as some people claim.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product, worked flawlessly! I see one other review on here that is pretty harsh, and focuses on some non-standard users (like focusing on the adapter tray for use in a Mac tower). I don't know about all that; I think the most common use would be replacing your mechanical laptop drive with a SSD laptop drive. For this purpose, the kit works flawlessly and quickly. I used it on a work laptop on a corporate domain and didn't have to do a thing after the copy/image process. Highly recommended if you're just wanting to get a SSD in your laptop without re-installing anything, which I think is the main targeted use for the product.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Complete waste of money The product was a complete waste of money. We don't get any guidance, instructions, documents, tutorials, F.A.Q.s, manual or DIY help. In addition, the cloning software does not work at all. No migration of the operating system to the new drive simply didn't happen. And you don't get any help whatsoever or step-by-step guide of some sort to help you through the process.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as advertised I wanted to replace my old HD with a SSD and needed this transfer cable for the process. I possess low-medium tech skills. How to use this device was confusing to me and the video/instructions were not 100% helpful. However, the customer service rep I spoke with was very knowledgeable on the topic and quickly gave me the info necessary for a successful experience. Further, as I understand it, I can continue to use this device with my old HD using my old HD as an external cloned backup for not only my files, but also my OS.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Give an installation CD Product seems to work well. It would have been nicer, however, if a CD of the cloning software had been included (like you guys used to do) instead of requiring your customers to go online to create an account to activate the software. I don't trust your privacy statement more than I can throw it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Revived a Dell desktop I used this kit to install the SSD into my Dell desktop. It has the required cable to clone the HD to the SSD plus an additional cable to add power to an extra HD which I did buy and install. I use the SSD for booting and programs. The additional 1TB HD is for data. The kit also includes an adapting bracket to facilitate installation into the desktop HD slot. Good price.
