    Crucial SSD Desktop Install Kit

    Install a Crucial SSD in a desktop PC with ease

    Installing an SSD in a desktop PC is easy, but it sometimes requires a few special supplies, which is why we created this kit. Included is a SATA-to-USB cable that you’ll use to transfer data from your old storage drive to your new SSD, a SATA-to-SATA cable that you’ll use to physically install the drive, plus a bracket you’ll use to install a Crucial SSD to your desktop’s storage bay. If you’re installing an SSD into a standard OEM desktop (HP, Dell, Lenovo, etc.) you’ll also need a 2.5-inch to 3.5-inch converter, which allows you to secure the SSD to these particular systems’ larger storage bays.

    PRODUCT HIGHLIGHTS
    • Designed for first-time SSD installers with desktop PC systems
    • Includes a USB-to-SATA data transfer cable, SATA data transfer cable, 3.5-inch adapter bracket, and mounting screws
    • Ideal for use with Crucial 2.5-inch SSDs
    WHAT’S INCLUDED
    • Acronis® True Image HD data transfer software
    • SATA data transfer cable
    • USB-to-SATA data transfer cable
    • 3.5-inch adapter bracket
    • Mounting screws
    • SSD sold separately

    Great product but support and documentation poor in parts. EG Documentation not up to date. Documentation says that Acronis CD should be inserted and now no CDs are issued - called support to clarify. No mention in documentation of need to initialise the ssd which support said was necessary.
    the process I went through:
    To simplify my upgrade from hd to ssd I connected the ssd (initialised) to a USB port using the cable supplied in the install kit. I wanted to use Acronis to clone the hd to the ssd. It allowed me to select the target disc but would not allow me to select the ssd to clone to. Phoned support to be told that the problem was the size of the ssd which did not match exactly the size of the hd. I pointed out that I thought it was the used capacity of the hd that mattered and this was far less than the ssd, but I was repeated told that the size had to be exactly the same. I was also told that perhaps I needed some help - did I have a friend or family member who could help me. I was also told that I could return the product for a full refund. I was not pleased with these comments. After the phone call I reread the documentation and on one of the documents I found a reference to Acronis and that it cannot be used to clone to a disc attached to a USB port and that the disc had to be internal. I therefore installed the ssd in a spare bay and restarted Acronis which worked with no problems. I was so pleased with the ssd that I ordered another from you to replace the other hd in my system and have installed that with no problems. In summary the documentation mislead me and support gave me completely the wrong information. So I would recommend the hardware but add a cautionary note about the documentation and support.

    I got this product as it was recommended as compatible with APPLE by the website. I went through it twice to be sure. I can confirm it isn't! What a waste. Instead I used super duper and the cable... easy even for a novice like me.

    Simpler than I was expecting

    By Dimbutnice

    Comes with Acronis software to help you clone your hard drive and this works very well. My slightly aging 8 Gb computer (Dell) is loaded with a lot of stuff as I do a lot of web and other development work professionally. It had a reasonably new 1Tb hard disk, but was still slow in loading, so I was wondering about buying a new computer. Decided to give the idea of a SSD drive a try as I wasn't looking forward to loading everything up and configuring a new computer. Very glad I did. It's never going to be blindingly fast because of the age of the computer, but it's made a significant difference and the computer is now useable again. One point, if you're upgrading a desktop, consider getting the SSD install kit as it's quite likely your current hard disk is bigger that the SSD.

    A Handy Option

    By Richard

    A great purchase option if you are upgrading to an SSD. Everything I needed was in this pack, transfer cable, connector cable for the inside of the pc if needed and a chassis adaptor so that you can fix your SSD securely. Certainly worth the few quid it cost.....

    SSD INSTALL KIT

    By JJ

    from Bridgwater Somerset

    Verified Reviewer

    Pros

    • It just makes life so easy for the novice I am.

    Cons

    • I didn't find any

    Best Uses

    • Ability to use the cloning system using acronis.

    It's still in it's infancy and has been hampered by Microsoft's constant upgrades which has robbed me of may files including all music, all photo's and all downloads (Plonkers).

    Sorry for the delayed reply but we've had difficulties related to UK weather.

    Excellent and easy upgrade!

    Quite simply the cloning of the laptop HDD could not have been made clearer or simpler. A few keyboard clicks and it's done. Exchanging the SSD for the hdd was well described and completed quickly.
    Speed of the new SSD makes the old laptop a pleasure to use. Seems there's a known windows 10 issue with some HDds transfer rates slow to a pedestrian/ dialup type pace, this is now resolved.
    A positive and satisfying experience. So much so have asked for support in using the manual ( as opposed to auto) cloning for my 1Tb HDD to 250Gb SSD. Again a well described process that removes concerns for me as a low level experience in IT user.

        NOT SUITABLE FOR iMAC 2009 desk top

        By Thomas

        from wales

        Verified Reviewer

        Advice and guidance very poor. The mounting bracket is not suitable for iMac. Product code was matched to serial number of computer and link also provided by the company. This meant that I could not mount the HDD with the kit - instead making a home made support. Very poor
