Experience a faster, cooler, and quieter computer in your home or business. You’ll wonder how you ever put up with a hard drive.

    Upgrade with a drive you can count on

    With thousands of hours of pre-release validation, dozens of SSD qualification tests, and a heritage of award- winning SSDs, the Crucial MX500 has been thoroughly tried, tested, and proven. Secure your most important files on a drive with established dependability and these advanced features.

    1. Hardware-based encryption: Keep personal files and confidential data restricted from hackers and thieves with AES 256-bit encryption that meets all industry standards, including Microsoft ® eDrive, IEEE- 1667, and TCG Opal 2.0.
    2. Integrated Power Loss Immunity: Avoid unintended data loss when the power unexpectedly goes out. This built-in feature of our new NAND protects your data swiftly and efficiently, so if your system suddenly shuts down, you keep all your saved work.
    3. Exclusive Data Defense: Prevent your photos, music, videos, and other files from becoming corrupted and unusable with layers of error correction and adaptive read technology.
    4. Redundant Array of Independent NAND: Protect your data at the component level with an SSD that automatically provides parity protection for your data. This high-end feature works similarly to how RAID is used with multiple hard drives and maintains the integrity of your data, especially for intense users.
    5. Built-in durability: Because SSDs don’t use moving parts that wear out over time (unlike hard drives), your files are less susceptible to a crash. SSDs are better equipped to survive physical trauma, like getting dropped, because they don’t rely on mechanical parts.

    Install with confidence

    For many people, opening a computer and transferring data seems terrifying. That’s why we’ve made it easy in the step-by-step Crucial SSD Install Guide. Check it out before you buy, then install your own SSD quickly with everything transferred over successfully and hassle-free.

    Though my PC is an i7 processor, performance was incredibly limited due to the HDD. I only realised how much by swapping to an SSD. The SSD is great, boot up and software load times are the fastest they have ever been. It has extended the usable life of my PC, probably for 3 years minimum. Cheaper than buying a new PC and the SSD will be re-usable in future PCs.

    The journey to a faster computer was time consuming. The Acronis software did not work as expected. It refused to clone my 1TB HDD (containing around 250GB of content) onto the 500GB SSD. I tried pretty much every solution suggested by web help, the online assistance and from asking experienced upgraders. This took up about two or three days as most of the suggestions involved blanking the SSD and starting again. All these processes add up in time. It just refused to work, the issue area was the OEM recovery drive partition. I reverted to a fresh install of windows 10 by creating a bootable USB stick from the Microsoft website. This worked first time and very quickly. The result is that I have lost some of the useful software I previously had as part of the OEM. It took me time to export all of my data, then re-import it, along with re-installing lots of software and drivers. In comparison this took around half a day.

    In retrospect I should have swapped out my HDD for the SSD and gone fresh Windows 10. Then plugged the old HDD back into the next SATA (SATA so no fiddly slave jumpers, plug into the next SATA), and used the data from the HDD. I still would have had to re-install some things, but I probably would have been done in less than a couple of hours!

    I bought the 500Gb disk as the additional installation kit - the disk is fine, the kit is useless.

    The kit comes with a USB adapter and the Acronis software to allow you to clone your disk BEFORE installing it. This just does not work!

    The Acronis software refuses to identify the disk as a Crucial disk when connected via the supplier (in the same box!) USB adapter. Other free software does recognise the disk but then refuses to clone the original disk as the 'sector size' is different - so both as much use as a chocolate teapot.

    Installing the disk internally (blank) causes further issues - the Dell PC refused to boot from the existing disk until I partitioned the SSD (via USB) and switched from GPT to MBR config.

    The Acronis software then did it's job - it would acknowledge the disk was from Crucial and would clone the original hard disk over.

    So that complete, I removed the original hard disk and put the SSD in its place, and guess what - the Dell refused to boot. Further investigation pointed to the UEFI config in the boot menu - there were now two entries labelled 'Windows Boot Manager' - manually selecting the second one worked, and after a bit of further digging I managed to change the boot priority to the second one.

    Still looking to find a way to delete the first one (which points to a none-existent drive - well the drive exists but is sitting in my cupboard!).

    So not totally straight forward, but got there in the end, and very happy with the results.

    Early 2011 Macbook Pro 15"

    By Ian

    My early 2011 Mac was getting pretty slow and considering a new MacBook and all the cost that goes with that. About £70 later, I had my Crucial SSD 500Mb with fingers crossed. Make sure you have a decent set of screwdrivers for the back of the Mac (Philips/Torque) and the install is very simple - also DO go for the USB>SATA cable for ease of software migration. The hardware install took me about 30 minutes and High Sierra about an hour. The new SSD drive has completely transformed my Mac in terms of launch times AND eerily quiet now - worth every penny!! Well done Crucial on a well priced, quality bit of kit.

        From bitter experience I expected the installation would not go as smoothly as stated in the manual but it did! My Router did not like the install & utility programs and I had to re-start it a couple of times

        Thought I would try this to help with the speed of my start up I have a dell desktop computer it is about four years old with plenty of storage so I took away a hard drive with 1 TB after cloning it. The whole process was very easy my system drive is now a MX500 and I used the install kit which made it very simple to do. Think this is the best upgrade I have done just fantastic..
