†1 GB = 1 billion bytes. Actual usable capacity may vary.

Micron® Quality - As a brand of Micron, one of the largest NAND manufacturers in the world, Crucial SSDs are designed and developed in-house with the latest technology. This means four things: hundreds of SSD qualification tests, over a thousand hours of prerelease validation testing, 1.5 billion dollars invested in R&D, and more than 30 years of industry expertise.

Adaptive Thermal Protection - Greater thermal management enables the Crucial M500 to work with the host computer to dynamically adjust power consumption based on usage demands, which helps address the cooling challenges of ultra-small, thermally constrained systems.

Hardware Data Encryption - The Crucial M500 SSD offers top-level hardware-based encryption, enabling enhanced data security. Our AES 256-bit hardware encryption engine and TCG Opal 2.0 compliant firmware allow the drive to operate at full speed without the performance loss that’s typically found in drives that use software-based encryption technology.

Three Year Limited Warranty - From prerelease validation testing to ensure that our SSDs work with the broadest range of chipsets, motherboards, and operating systems to more than a thousand hours of endurance testing, our drives are tested for reliability from start to finish. We proudly offer a three-year limited warranty and award-winning tech support.

        Upgrade from 500GB HDD using easeus mirror on W7. Had to resize the old drive partition prior to mirror and update the intel rapid storage driver to get update and defender working again but once done all good. Now boots in under 30 secs... Happy days.

          The kids love to haul our HP laptop around the place - lots of gaming and web surfing - and therefore lots of bumps & knocks for the hard-drive. A disk check revealed a few bad clusters, so I took the plunge and decided to upgrade the original SATA 5600rpm 500GB drive to this 240GB SSD (there was lots of free disk space on the original drive). SSD Now fitted and many operations are faster than before and we have peace of mind ongoing. Everyone is happy :) I thoroughly recommend the new Paragon Hard Disk Manager 14 Suite to clone the old hard drive to the new SSD - this is simply a really great package, which continues to add value beyond the disk cloning process. It also lets you move bigger original disk partitions to a smaller hard disk. You'll need a small memory stick for the Paragon Windows Repair on boot up with the new drive, but you can buy one on here at the same time as the drive at a great price.

                This is what I did, hope it helps other people...
                1. Clean up your existing system.
                2. Change BIOS from UEFI to Legacy.
                3. Connect the SSD and the cable provide to usb port.
                4. Insert CD (mine was Windows 8, Acronis 0713), switch on computer.
                5. When Acronis appears on screen, select 'English' and follow prompts.
                6.After copying, switch off machine; change hard drive for SSD, change BIOS setting back to UEFI. Power on and bingo!

                **Make sure your tools are 'earthed'
