This is an upgrade to my wifes laptop which because of all the Win 10 updates was becoming almost unuseable.
The process is quite simple, download the software copy your system onto the SSD, take the old drive out and replace with the new SSD.....simples!
As there was not much on my wifes laptop I also did Win refresh. Now it performs superbly well.
I purchased the 250Gb SSD drive to replace the old HDD in my Asus G53JW gaming laptop. Even at 8 years old the laptop's CPU and GPU are more than adequate for my needs, however the HDD was where it fell down, often with disk read/write at 80-100% constantly for minutes during and after start-up.
Bootup time was around 2.5-3minutes (from power on to fully loaded desktop). Crucial's SSD has reduced this time to...30 seconds and that is no joke.
Extremely happy with the product it works so well and I couldn't be more impressed with Crucial's Acronis disk cloning software, which was not only free to download, but worked flawlessly with no errors and had me up and running windows with all my installed applications on the new SSD within the hour.
Crucial's downloadable system scanner tool, was also brilliant. Installed within seconds and scans your hardware for possible component upgrades. What's even better is that the products' it recommends are guaranteed to work in your system, really good for peace of mind.
replaced the HDD in my sons desktop pc. it was so slow I wasn't sure what was causing the issues. thought id start with the disk as that should be straight forward. its like a totally different machine. boots so quick, everything opens an runs faster. massive improvement.
Needed more space plus start up speed,this SSD filled both these requirements.
From the sealed, delivered package to a working Linux laptop in 48 minutes. It was to replace an ageing 8 year old 5400 320gb drive that was beginning to work a bit hard. No cloning, just whack it in the laptop and boot from CD to install fresh install of Linux. Performance is very, very good with fast bootup and no noise!
I purchased the SSD to upgrade my Acer notebook. I used the Crucial tool to find the correct SSD for my laptop. The purchase process was very easy as well as the installation process of the new SSD plus the transfer of the software and my files from the old HD by using the Acronis program that is included in purchase. The installation instructions are very easy to follow and you do not need to be a computer expert to do the change over.
I also have found that accessing programs is much quicker using the SSD.
It is also silent!
Easy to install..transfer kit worked like a dream ..up and running in 30 minutes.. !
Fast drive for the price.
I have used Crucial a lot before and their service and products are second to none.
I was replacing a broken HDD with an SSD and the conversion was fast and easy.
The old PC became so much faster - a lot cheaper then buying a new PC
