    Crucial MX500 reviews

    500GB MX500 2.5" Internal SSD is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 18.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Speeds up older machines! I've bought and installed a few of these drives in the past and I'm always amazed at how much of an improvement they are over the standard hard drive.� Install was very easy. The most time consuming part was moving all my files over.� My MacBook Pro (2012) was starting to bog down and take forever to open webpages/mail and just about everything so I decided to upgrade. I could not be happier! Programs open up in a snap and file transfers (from ssd to ssd) are lighting fast! Photo editing is much better as well. This drive gave new life to my laptop. Excellent buy.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from keep away from these failed 3x on separate occasion, I do not recommend this unit to anyone. The first drive failed to work so I went to B&H right away to get another one. The Micron company sent the second replacement as a refurbished product that was bound to fail, but they escaped their obligations after third failure as the warranty is bound to an original purchase date within 2 years. In 2 years, I lost data on 3 separate hard drives thrice! keep off these products. Get Glyph.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Upgrade I installed this in a client's Macbook Pro.� The client had reported that the machine was super slow and not working correctly. After installing this and loading the software there was a VERY noticeable difference.� The Macbook ran like a charm.� Would highly recommend.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from verdict isint in yet, I bought a 64gb some years ago and it went out within 6 months, never did work after, and there was no return policy in place. I'm taking a chance with this 500gb, it's fast and all but will it holds up is the question, it has 5 year warranty so I'm keeping track.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Past due So far so good. Replace in an older laptop (7 years old). Start-up took on average 1 1/2 minutes to 2 minutes with all programs with old hard drive. Now it is ready in under 30 secs. Not blazing speed but not bad for an older laptop which is my backup system.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast enough for day to day usage, great value Performs more than good enough for everyday tasks. I have an NVMe drive which Windows and other commonly used software sits on, and the MX500 will take the job of being the fast storage device. The balance between price, performance, reliability is great.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Speedy iMac with SSD Used this unit in my laptop with great results - boot from 90+ seconds to sub 30 seconds. So, bought another for my iMac. Wow! Response time and boot showed huge improvements. 2x to 3x ... and the upgrade is not to difficult.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Fast! I popped this baby in a 2012 MacBook Pro and its running like a dream. The price is so reasonable that its impossible to pass up. If you want to revitalize an old computer, this SSD is the way to go.
