Super easy to install on macbook pro mid-12 Reviewing after using the SSD for 6 months.. Previously it takes a lot of time when switching and opening new pages or apps with the original HDD, now with SSD it's better than when i first bought it!! Super fast, don't hesitate to upgrade the mid-12 definitely worth it

I installed this SSD as a replacement. I migrated the OS and it was a simple swap. Works perfectly and faster. Great deal.

I installed into an older Sony Vaio FZ140E laptop. I used EZ-Gig IV to transfer the operating system to the new SSD.

Quick and well-made, what's not to like?

This is my eighth MX500 drive, and second 2TB unit. The first has been going strong for three years serving as a data drive in an external enclosure and has endured drops and various abuse a drive intended for internal installation normally wouldn't encounter. No complaints at all, it just keeps chugging along and is still speedy as can be for a SATA drive.

Perfect for Ninja V

I bought this because it is the cheapest 1 TB drive the Ninja V can shoot Prores with. It works and has been in the heat of around 110 F for a few days.

Good drive but don't like the way B&H shipped it

Placed this in a gaming style laptop that I use for photo/video to replace a 1TB HHD. Increased speed and capacity is nice. Hope it lasts. Took a star away, because B&H shipped it to me in an envelope and not a box.

This hard drive was easy to install and clone with the Acronis cloning tool provided. The speed from the old hd to this SSD is amazing. I feel like I have a new computer.

practical, speedy and cheap

I still love the 2.5 SSDs. It feel as if they are trying to phase them out too quickly. I'll gladly take whatever is remaining and use 'em up. But Crucial Mx500's have been especially a fine workshorse for my needs and I'm glad they are super cheap right now.

does this has d ram?
Asked by: Peter
According to the Anandtech review from 2018, yes it has DRAM Cache, as well as SLC Cache. DRAM cache: 256MB, 512MB, 1024MB, or 2048MB depending on the size. (512MB on the 1TB). Aditionally it also offers an SLC cache. "As usual for Crucial, the SLC write cache is dynamically sized based on how full the drive is." Some manufacturers have been known to silently change SSD internals and pretend it's the same drive though, so the fact that a lot of manufacturers don't list important details like this in the official specs on their website can be a bit concerning.

Does this ssd works in a Macbook Air Mid 2012?

Does this ssd works in a Macbook Air Mid 2012?
Asked by: Ana Elisa
No, the Mid 2012 MacBook Air series DOES NOT use a conventional 2.5" "Laptop" type SSD. These use the "Stick" type of Internal SSD, but Apple went proprietary and used a "non-standard" edge key slot on the SSD. While this particular type of SSD can be replaced/upgraded with special tools, the correct SSD module is both expensive and hard to find. Also, the RAM in this model is soldered onto the motherboard and is not user upgradeable either. Sorry! I hope this helps you!
