The arrival of the solid-state drive (SSD) has revolutionised the speed at which modern PCs perform common tasks. This is because SSDs have no moving parts, compared to larger, bulkier mechanical drives, thus they store information on memory chips. This means that accesses, reads and writes are many, many times faster

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy and Reliable Easy to install in my case with plenty of compatible holes to fit your respective screws into. Was instantly recognised and works at truly insane speeds. If you like Crucial/BALLISTIX/Micron's RAM reliability you'll love this drive.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does what it says on the tin . . . I have a pretty typical desktop build, in that I use an SSD for my windows installation and a larger mechanical drive for long term storage, such as documents, films, music and photos. When I built my computer I felt I only needed a 256GB SSD, and despite pointing windows to save documents to my mechanical drive, my little Samsung SSD still filled up with data of some sort! So I cloned my Samsung 256GB SSD to this new 512GB(?) SSD from Crucial. I had read many reviews and opinions online that testify to this drive having a good balance of speed, quality and reliability. So far the drive has been fault free and I have found it a great replacement, doubling the capacity of the previous SSD. Should see me right for another couple of years. I only just realised when taking a photo of the drive in place, how dirty my computer actually is! Think I'll give it a clean soon! As always great service and prompt delivery from Scan. Recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product The product arrived, as expected, very quickly. The product itself is very good, a fast SSD drive that massively improves system performance. Just remember to order a mounting kit as well because these are 3.5" drives which don't naturally fit into a desktop PC without the mounting kit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Faster Boot Replacement for laptop hard disk, has resulted in much faster boot times and performance. Cloning was quite straight forward with Acronis which I already have. Once the clone was complete I did a straight swap and booted up successfully. The hardest part of the job was removal of the laptop base cover.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product and great value Based on price of £55.99. Performance & feature set not touched by other manufacturers at this price. In the box a spacer for 7mm vs 9mm if needed and booklet pointing to web site to download cloning software if required.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little drive! Lovely little drive. Crucial are a good brand and I tend to use them when purchasing storage (no brand is perfect, but better to go for a reputable one!) The speeds are great. Win 10 boots in seconds, had no problems running games. Only thing is that it doesn’t come with the extenders to fit into a 3.5” panel. Not a problem in my build as I could mount it onto the case - but if you’re putting this in a 3.5” drive bay remember to buy the extenders!
Date published: 2019-02-04
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast and Reliable Simple to install, can fit it almost anywhere inside of case. Been using SSD as my main system drive for around a year and forgot all about it! Data transfers are smoother and much faster. I was using a Hybrid drive prior to this for capacity but this proved to be unreliable for system use. Recommend using an SSD for all systems....
