    Crucial M500 Reviews

    240GB M500 2.5" Internal SSD is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 38.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great affordable upgrade I got this to upgrade a failing standard 500GB hard drive in a Mac Mini. I read that the Samsung was somewhat faster, had a little more storage, and had equally good/better reviews. However, it was $20-$30 more. Since I may be selling the computer in the next 6 months, the Crucial was the best option. So far, it's been great. Most noticeable speed increase has been when opening up programs/applications. The only thing that would have made this better if it were the standard 250GB instead of 240GB. This has forced me to be more diligent on storage...what to keep, what to move to external, and what to delete.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Solid State Hard Drive I have a 240GB M500 on my laptop Asus i5 and a Samsung 256GB 840 Pro Series 2.5 on my tower i7. too small difference to open Photos software to pay more money if your budget are for a lower price.Go for it at 100 % a good ssd !! the only thing could be the 5 years for Samsung 840 Pro!! I not worry to do the same time with my Crucial. example .. my Asus i5 laptop take around 10 sec to open maybe less whit full photo applications to load.So I cant tell you more than Go for it you wont regret. Very easy to install ! crucial are a very serious company and Samsung too.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast and Dependable Crucial's solid state drives are excellent, dependable products. I installed this 240mb SSD in a 5-year old 2009 Ma ini. I wanted to upgrade the factory-installed conventional 5400 rpm HD before it had any issues given its age. Along with a memory upgrade, this 5-year old Ma ini is now as good as new. The boot time and application launch is much faster. Everything is an improvement; an excellent investment to extend the life of the Ma ini. This is the second computer that I have upgraded with a Crucial SSD. No need for any trim software either, according to Crucial. Highly recommended.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works Great Installation was easy-I just plugged it in and my computer recognized the new hardware and installed it right away (it does not come with any cables, so be sure you already have SATA and power cables on hand). I used a free backup program to clone my old hard drive and set the Bios boot priority to the Crucial drive. Thus far, it has worked without a hitch and everything seems to load faster. I'm using the Crucial drive for Windows and programs, which leaves a lot of extra space on an old 500 GB hard drive for personal files and such. All in all, a good buy for the price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best online experiance I order my first SSD to test the speed of Windows 7 OS. I clone the drive and bring the system up without any problem. The SSD work excellent. I can boot my system in just 15 seconds reduced from 3.5 Minutes. B&H has shipped the order same day and I got it 2nd day with free shipping. This is the best experience I have ever had because I tried to buy SSD from '@' and visit many times to their store but could not get any SSD.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Upgrade from 120GB SSD to this one 240GB. So far I love it. Did you know that when your drive is near full, transfer speed is dramatically decreased. So when I upgraded from 120SSD to 240SSD my computer started to breath again :).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply good Fits well in a thinkpad X230. So far so good. It simply works. Upgraded from a Samsung 830 120G, the 830 sometimes becomes reluctant and the Samsung SSD software is kind of annoying.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from True performance boost Installing the Crucial SSD in my aging MacBook-13 has given it a new lease on life. Boot time has been reduced from 1:30 to 26 seconds. The BlackMagic disk speed measurement shows my read speeds went from 50MB/s to 204MB/s. Write speeds went from 45MB/s to 262MB/s. Applications launch faster and perform better. As a bonus, the laptop runs cooler and there is no vibration from the spinning disk. Definitely the best upgrade I've made, besides increasing RAM to 8G.
