Really fast
This drive is great choice. I have many of these installed from scratch but was first time to clone from HDD SATA to SDD SATA and there was an issue right away. SDDs need to have a regular Microsoft driver pre installed before cloning the old drive. This means, change whatever your currnet driver is on exisiting HDD to basic Microsoft , only then clone and put your new SDD to work. Crucial should include this info in the box or manual but it doesnt hence one star less

great upgrade for my 2012 macbook pro
very affordable, super easy to install. i wanted a clean install and didn't transfer anything or back anything up. i just booted up after installing holding command+r, and i downloaded the OS and it was good to go!

Easy and fast swap
Easy swap of boot drive. Compatibility check, instructions, and cloning software are available on crucial.Com. After making a bootable system disk with the acronis software, the cloning process went smoothly without problems. Swapped out my 3 year old wd black boot drive and windows 10 did a quick update. Everything is running great. Definite performance boost.

Made this old dog run like a fast puppy
Made this old dog run like a fast puppy! Updating my macbook pro (15" late 2008) was a breath of fresh air. I can run adobe cc products at decent workable speed whereas prior to the upgrade was painfully sluggish. (i maxed out my ram as well) worth the investment!

Does what it says. After installation my boot time ...
Does what it says. After installation my boot time was reduced from 3 min to 34sec give or take a few.Wish i did not wait until my original hard drive was failing..

Great upgrade
Used included spacer to update a 4 year old hp laptop. Windows 10 loads in little time and response is pretty spectacular.

Lenovo 510s-14isk, why didn't i upgrade to an ssd sooner?
After receiving the product from outletpc, i had to wait another day for a sataiii to usb cable. Once the other cable came, i was able to use the cloning software that crucial provides on their website. I am not sure how long it took because i went to bed but when i woke up it was all done cloning. I immediately cracked my laptop open to throw the ssd in. After putting the ssd in with minimal trouble, i booted my computer up and the lenovo recovery program ran without booting into windows. After trying to restart it a few times, it kept booting into the recovery menu. I tried to recover and the program said it was sucessful after about 30 minutes. After restarting, it booted again into the recovery program provided by lenovo. I tried to research the issue but wasn't able to find any documentation. With my knowledge of bios, i booted into bios and looked around. I changed the "fast boot" setting because in the description it had something to do with the hdd. I saved it and restarted my computer and windows booted with all my programs!Everything is so fast i am amazed. It used to take 20 seconds to load microsoft word, it now takes 2 seconds. Loading android studio would take forever to load so i always left it loaded. Now android studio starts in less than 10 seconds (before it would take a minute or two)very satisfied (even with a little trouble with initial boot, i'm sure that had a lot to do with lenovo and how they handle things)
