Bought this hard drive as it was a good price and had good reviews. Very fast delivery. After fitting it into my 10+ year old laptop (which was a breeze) it has breathed new life into my laptop. I would highly recommend this product.

Been using the Crucial BX and MX SSD range of drives to upgrade family's old laptops and PC's, the difference in performance gives a new lease life to the machines. Old Pentium and Core 2 Duo machines are just as quick as newer machines..! I always start with installing the operating systems from scratch avoiding all the bloatware which probably helps as well..!!

I was that pleased with the Crucial BX500 2.5" 240GB SATA III Solid State Drive, and how easy it was to clone my old HDD with free software supplied by Crucial. That I bought a second one.

Lacks dram cache and is really badly made and as an os drive it stutters and feels slower than a 5400rpm hdd definetely wouldn't purchase another.


August 2020

Very fast SSD by Micron, highly recommended for the price.

Pc boots in less than have a minute. Great piece of tech


December 2019

An excellent SSD at current (2019) prices, performance is exactly midrange for current-gen SSDs (equivalent to Sandisk Plus, superior to Kingston A400, etc.) but the price is about as low as they get, very competitive. No failures so far out of several dozen used. Currently the best value general-use SSD on the market.

Excellent prompt service from vendors. Used to replace the 160GB SATA III 3gb/s drive in my Dell laptop. Unit cloned original drive no problems. Plug and play replacement, with extra 90GB disk space and extra performance from 6gb/s access speed. Also less weight and lower power usage, so +++ on performance. Very pleased with this purchase.

Conrad Sharp

May 2019

I purchased the Crucial BX500 as a recommendation, by one of the staff. The SSD has been brilliant for what I required. Fast write speed, compact and slim.


April 2019

This SSD is one of the best Solid State Hard Drives I have bought and is very good value. I can't recommend them enough. I have one in my Laptop and one in my Desktop Computers as a backup drive. I have a crucial 1Gb SSD as my main Desktop Hard Drive.

Great. Really sped up my computer with a fresh install of Windows on this SSD.

Mike Gittins

Certainly speeds up my old lap top - easy to install and cost effective.

As soon as I set up and installed the SSD as my boot drive (I previously had a HDD) I noticed an immediate improvement in loading times and general performance. It was like my PC was brand new. Can only recommend.

for the price this is a great SSD and as always great service and fast delivery from CCL.


October 2018

I bought this for a laptop that I purchased without a hard drive. I decided something better than standard was a good choice this fitted the bill perfectly, a good balance between price and realiability from a well known supplier. I have used CCL many times but on this occasion usedtheir I was not dissapoined the usual excellent service I went on to purchase this drives bigger brother as well for my own laptop.
