I bought a Crucial MX500 250GB SSD from CCL computers to replace a mechanical Seagate 250GB hard drive in my refurbished i5 processor desktop HP 6300 which is now about 5 years old but still going strong. I have bought a few other things from CCL in the past and always found them very quick and reliable which is why I bought from them again.. The old Seagate was still working fine but I wanted a faster boot up and knew an upgrade to SSD was the thing to do. I chose Crucial simply because they were also providing the Acronis True Image software to clone the old drive. This free bit of software only works when you buy and connect the Crucial MX500, i.e. it only works with Crucial SSDs as you would expect. I certainly made the right choice, the Acronis human on-screen interface was very simple to use which is not always the case with powerful disk cloning software like this. I first of all downloaded the Acronis software from the internet to my un-modified computer, i.e. it was installed on the OLD hard drive. It will not run until you plug-in the MX500 as you might expect. I then used a "USB 3.0 to SATA cable adaptor" to connect the Crucial MX500 into a spare USB 3.0 on the computer. USB 3.0 was chosen over USB 2.0 simply because its a fast interface but even so, to clone the original 250GB hard drive to the new 250GB SSD took around 1.5 hours. If USB 2.0 was used, it would probably take a lot longer. After the cloning was completed, I simply switched off the mains and removed the old Seagate hard drive and replaced it with the Crucial MX500, a 2 minute job with the HP 6300. The MX500 is a 2.5 inch drive so I also purchased a "2.5 to 3.5 tray adaptor" (just a bent piece of aluminium or plastic) which enables the smaller MX500 to fit snuggly in the larger 3.5 inch drive space. The moment of truth came at switch-on. I gritted my teeth and waited, the computer seemed to be upgrading itself to the new SSD or it maybe that Windows 10 was. Anyway, the wait was a minute or so. Then, everything burst into life and all seemed well. I wanted to check the boot up speed, so I switched off and then switched on again. Boot time had dropped to around 20 seconds from around 2 minutes so I was well pleased. Of course, all the programs on the computer now load so fast compared to before and so my old computer now feels much fresher. The MX500 came with a 5 year guaranteed which was another reason I bought a SSD by Crucial. So far so good !!
