    Basically, to save yourself 3 days, do not clone from a HDD to an SSD. ALso the Acronis software DOES NOT work out of the box. You need to burn bootable media, run the cd from BIOS/Boot, change settings in bios just to get the clone to do its job. But then running the SSD does not wqork, i presume because of legacy drivers that are not addressed opr updated. But since the drive stays stable for about 15 seconds after login you have no time to sort out any issues. I eventually managed to get to windows reset screen and tried to keep settings, THIS DID NOT WORK EITHER. Basically, do a fresh install of windows on the drive. And reinstall all your software. Safest, cleanest way to use this drive. (I dont think its a fault of the drive just the process in general)

    Wasted a whole day trying to install this with hours spent on the phone to Crucial. After numerous attempts, (and various solutions to try from Crucial), and time wasted cloning it more than once, it is being returned. All it did was cause MAJOR MAJOR problems in Windows 10, (hanging, freezing, not opening software, half opening software and then not being able to close it), all the way to complete lockup of laptop requiring disconnection from the mains.

    Cons

      Best Uses

        Crucial SSD has replaced a noisy and ageing HDD, My MacBook Pro is now so much quicker, quieter and cooler, I mainly use for video editing and Crucial SSD gives me faster and cleaner video clips pick up and storage. Super fast boot up is a mega bonus.

        Crucial down loadable software for installation also works well. I cloned my original hard drive to the new SSD then fitted the new drive into my Dell. All worked well first time.The ability to check compatibility on your web site is reassuring when choosing products. Thanks.

        By Mal

        Pros

        • Easy to fit with downloadable free clone softwar

        Cons

        • Web page on instructions incorrect.Didn't matter

        Best Uses

          Confirmed with pre-sales that they would be compatible with both my laptops.
          Order 2 drives plus one USB to SATA cable.
          Downloaded Acronis software (link given on Crucial web site)
          1. Cloned existing hard drive to new SSD. Windows 7. This was 2 partitions on a smaller drive. It added extra to both partitions as SSD was larger. Replaced hard drive with SSD. Much faster boot.
          2. Cloned existing hard drive to other SSD. Windows 10. This was one partition of 700GB but only half used. I had deleted superflous files previously. Replaced hard drive with SSD. Faster but not so significant as older machine above as this was an i7 Intel.

          Used you tube to assist in replacing hard drive BUT some you tube were incorrect for one of the machines.

          I had also purchased 2 USB to SATA docking stations (NOT enclosure) from Novatech. This takes either 2 1/2" or 3 1/2" drives. Ideal for taking initial backups prior to doing work (not clone, just backing up files with Windows copy)

          It was so easy as long as you take things step by step.
          BUT now need to modify both systems where possible to reduce the writes to get longer life on SSD.

          I know nothing about computers, but I was able to use time machine to put all my stuff on this hard drive and then physically install it with no issues just by searching for how to guides online. The copying took a few hours and the installation just 30 mins. It works perfectly and my 2009 mac is now back to being lightning quick.

          I had a five year old i7 Dell Inspiron N7110 with a HDD. It was so slow to load at start and every time it opened programs. Fitted a Crucial MX300 SSD and WOW! The i7 Quad Core now works at the speed it should. Laptop starts up from scratch in 10 secs, no more going off to make a coffee while it starts. I decided to do a completely fresh install of Windows 10 on the SSD and even that was so easy. Everything I do on the laptop now works at lightning speed. Wish I had done it earlier! If you haven't done it already, upgrade to an SSD, it is so worth it.

          Used this to replace a 1Tb hard disk in a 4-year old laptop running Windows 10. Before replacing it was taking 5 to 8 minutes to boot. Replacement was easy using the instruction video, cloning the old disk was straightforward using the included download of Acronis software and the SATA to USB I purchased at the same time. Unplugged the old disk, plugged in the SSD and switched on. Boot took 20 seconds!
