    Crucial MX500 reviews

    250GB MX500 2.5" Internal SSD is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 18.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buy this SSD. You will not regret it! I'm a Computer Programmer by trade. And I have to say that this is an amazing SSD. Super fast. I can't say how much I love this thing enough times. I used to have a PNY 128GB SDD for my operating system drive (Windows), and yes, it was fast, much faster than a platter hard drive. But when I wanted to upgrade to a 250GB SSD, I did my research, and found that this SSD was supposed to out-perform many of the SDDs out there, including many name brands. So I bought one here on B&H and installed it, and wow! I can notice a big improvement over my PNY SSD. My programs load very fast and smooth. Copying files is faster. My Windows feels more stable. Love it. I will buy Crucial from now on.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Speeds up the system Bought this for my wife's two-year-old Lenovo laptop. Successfully cloned her hard drive on the first attempt using the Acronis software. Taking her machine apart was a little tricky, but I found the service manual and a YouTube video with an online search, and in less than an hour had taken the computer apart, swapped the drives, and put it back together. Had a brief moment of panic when the system booted into the recovery partition, but quickly realized all I needed to do was boot into the BIOS and change the boot device order so the SSD came first. With that issue solved, the laptop booted up to Windows 10 in record time. Everything is just like it was before, but a lot faster. She loves it! Would buy this drive again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good SSD I didn't see a significant increase in speed from other SSD models, but Crucial makes a very reliable product and I find it's a worthwhile investment.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for older laptop I bought this for a 6 year old Toshiba laptop that was having hard drive problems. Install was maybe 10 minutes - Fresh install of windows 10 from ISO - install maybe 30 minutes. Laptop now boots in 20 seconds or less- it takes longer to put in password than to boot. I don't need a lot of space on this machine its used only as an extra resource, If I knew how fast it was going to be I would have gotten a bigger drive and put into primary use again.-� Love this thing

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great upgrade i upgraded my 2010 HP Pavillion dv6t-2000 CTO with this drive. it has been a great uograde. the cloning was hard but thats because i choose to buy a smaller drive than my original. my original drive is over 300gb. i was still able to use acronis, i just ahd to go into the manual settings and change some properties. the drive is excellent. i have some issues but i think it might be because i choose a smaller drive. i have a software program that it wont remember my logon and password seetings and i have to enter them everytime. but thats not the drives fault. the computer is much faster. i did a memory and drive upgrade. its a much faster computer. it was worth it. totally recomend it. if your a novice at computers you may not be able to do it yourself. but if you have some idea of how things work, you should be able to do it yourself. the drive is only 7mm so you might need that spacer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Revitalized 2011 Mac Mini 2011 Mac Mini suffered a HDD failure, purchased this SSD to replace the failed drive. Install went fairly smoothly, formatted using Apple's disk utility, then recovered from Time Machine backup. Whole process took about 45 minutes and now the Mac Mini runs quick as lightning.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great SSD, no complaints Baby worked like a charm. I bought it to upgrade from my HDD only desktop PC. Honestly, its like night and day with this SSD, wish I had bought it sooner, but the prices were kinda high for SSDs. They have recently dipped. great time to buy. happy with my purchase. Cheers!
