I bought two of these for two different older Win10 computers with spinning hard drives that were degrading, making the computers very slow. First was my wife’s nearly 9 year old laptop. First attempt at cloning drive failed because the computer shut itself off during the process. Be sure to go into power settings and disable automatic shutdown or sleep mode. Once I did that the cloning succeeded. Second PC was a desktop with a 250GB spinning drive. The SSD is 1 TB. Using the cloning wizard, it wanted to create a 217 GB Windows partition (same size as it was on the spinning drive) and it wanted to blow up the recovery partition to well over 700 GB. Well, that’s stupid! It should have kept the recovery partition the same size and increased the Windows partition as much as possible. So I halted the cloning and restarted it in manual mode, which allows changing the partition sizes. In manual mode the cloning software made the correct suggestion: it kept the recovery partition and two small mysterious partitions the same sizes that they were on the hard drive, and it increased the Windows partition to 871 GB. So I accepted those sizes and did the cloning. Why couldn’t the wizard have figured that out? Bottom line – pay attention during the cloning process to make sure the wizard isn’t doing something dumb. Both computers are now running much faster than before. My wife is delighted with her new laptop. She says it is now super-fast. B&H sale price was great with free two day delivery.

I bought 4 of these SSDs for a RAID 0 configuration in 2020. The write speeds are very irregular. I tested them individually. Tested them on Mac, Win and Ubuntu. Same thing. Contacted Crucial. They could not give me an answer. AVOID THIS PRODUCT!!!!!

Installed on my 6 year old system. Added much needed capacity, works great. What more is there to say.

I purchased two of these I’m using one of them as a backup windows clone and the other as a storage drive for games & files that I need to keep So far it’s working good

I have only had 1 SSD go bad on me and I’ve installed about one hundred as of writing this review. Crucial is one of the best names in the business although you’ll pat for the name. If it is critical to have reliability, buy Crucial.

We use them in security surveillance trailers and they are robust and sturdy you cannot go wrong in buying them.

This drive is working well as a fast cache on my Mac. Great drive for a great price.

When doing transfers of large files, for the first minute of the transfer the drive gives the advertised transfer speeds, however, once the buffer is full (or the drive heats up?) the transfer slows down to an unusable 30MB/s. The high ratings is probably because most people will use this drive as an OS drive, and never really do sustained writing jobs to it. It is probably okay as an OS drive where writing is usually in small chunks and not constant.
