I bought the SSD to upgrade my laptop. It can only have one M.2 SSD installed at a time; so I needed to image the old disk before installing the upgrade. The supplied copy of Acronis true image would not run with a non-crucial disk installed so I had to find third party software. Surely anyone adding an M.2 disk into a laptop would find the same - supplying software that depends on the disk that hasn't yet been inserted into the laptop is a waste of space and time. And I could have bought others without that software - I was after a complete package for seamless transfer; luckily there are other competing products freely available.
Gave immediate upgrade of space from the original 128 gb SSD
After running the crucial scan on my Dell XPS 13 a guaranteed upgrade was ordered and duly delivered. It had a hardware fault and had to be returned. One week later the replacement arrived. It works, so i used the Acronis True Image for Crucial software to clone the disk. This ran ok and after i opened up and swapped the SSD over it won't boot. The SSD supplied is a SATA M.2 2280SS SSD, The original is not the same it is an NVMe SSD. The whole point of running the Crucial scan tool is so that you don't have to open up the case before hand, I wish I had now as I wouldn't have wasted my time and money.
Arrived quickly and it was straightforward to clone my laptop's old 128Gb disk to the new 1Tb drive.A few minutes to swap them over and the job was done. About as simple as it gets.
As expected it was no faster because it was limited by laptop sata interface to same speed as the smaller drive it replaced.
First unit received was effectively DoA. 2nd unit initialised and performed as expected. Then cloned my main drive using the supplied Acronis application which made the drive unrecognisable. However I must give credit where its due, Crucial have replaced the units without immediately and without question. Plan to use my own choice of cloning software when I receive replacement unit.
