Questions and Answers

Do you have you a question about the Crucial MX500 (250GB) Solid Sate Drive SATA 2.5 inch (Internal)?

Q: What forms of interface device are currently available to update a standard Laptop built with 2.5 HDD with an SSD (500GB - 1TB)depending on available physical space. I remember early adverts for SSD included kits for adaptation but I no longer come across these any more?

The MX500 drives come with a rectangular shim in case the SSD is too slim. Generally there is no problem because it just screws into the laptop's caddie and is held secure.

The drive was as expected and delivered on. What more do you want?

Refreshed an old Dell E6420 with extra memory and an SSD into a perfectly capable work laptop. Performance much improved. It's nearly 10 times faster and will give a few more years of service.

Bought to replace the hard drive in my HP Pavilion as I was fed up of the time my computer took to start up, it always has been slow. The new solid state drive is excellent, the computer starts very quickly and tasks are completed much faster. Easy to fit although the computer dismantling took a while. The software for transferring Windows was easy to use. A good reasonably priced purchase.

A perfect replacement for the aged HDD in my desktop. A new lease of life and a much cheaper option than buying a new machine.

The drive works and the bundled acronis true image software allowed transfer of a 500gb 80gb used windows 10 drive to the 250gb ssd. Only caveat is, I needed to fix the drive errors well enough first in order to clone to a smaller drive, which with a failing hard disk was tricky... (chkdsk /f /r C:) If you have a failing hard disk, it would be worth getting a bigger ssd than the original just to save the 12 hours of faffing with your fingers crossed I had to go through!

Genuine ssd. Fast delivery.

I was upgrading my HP laptop. After much research on the subject, I found that upgrading from a mechanical HDD to an SSD was the single most effective and recommended way to increase the performence of your laptop. So I began the hunt. This is my first Crucial product purchase. I chose this for a few reasons. Firstly, the reviews across the internet are very positive for the Crucial brand. The price compares very well with others in this space. I chose 250gb event though that was a significant drop from 2TB HDD that was installed. Simply beacuase in 4 years I never got above 120gb of storage use & that included OS, apps and stuff. Cloning the disk from the original drive was super quick and easy using free Acronis software. I purchased a 2.5" enclosure to do this with instead of just buying a cable, the plan being to install the old HDD into the enclosure when done to have a spare External Hard Drive. Worked a treat! Installation to the laptop could not have been easier and I had it done in about 2 minutes. The difference in performence with the new SSD is phenominal and really noticeable. I highly recommend it to anyone considering it.

I used it to upgrade my old PS3. Researched and this was best match for budget price/performance reliable SSD.


April 2020

This SSD was recommended by my computer 'expert' (he uses the product on his kit). My Acer laptop has had a new lease of life following the 'transplant' with improved speed and performance.

Excellent product with great online support from the manufacturer too

Excellent value for money. Quality product as usual from Crucial. A decent upgrade to my BX100. Works perfectly with Ubuntu 18.04.

Mr Powis

July 2019

Good product with excellent online manufacturer support and cloning software. Installing this drive has made our old computer useable again and saved the price of a new one. Also has an excellent optimization programme for Windows which you can (and should) install


July 2019

Probably the best value 'go faster' item I've ever installed.


April 2019

I bought this to speed up my ageing Windows 10 desktop PC. I was not disappointed! I used the recommended software to clone the OS onto the new drive and it worked faultlessly. The PC now responds faster with its new SSD compared to its old HDD.


April 2019

Great quality! Never had any issues with any Crucial products.

Changed out an old sata drive for the Crucial MX500 and bang Its like having a new PC. Well worth the money.


April 2019

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 !!

Great upgrade to my laptop which is way faster with this installed, only took my minutes to install

Transformed an ageing laptop! It was frequently getting unusable with old hard disk slowing everything down and now the new disk is unbelievably faster and significantly quieter too. Great that they link to the software to complete the transfer which was relatively pain free. (I needed to update backup settings such as Drive as it didn't recognise the new drive as being the data to back-up automatically)


November 2018

very good quality and very good value for the money.Yes I am definitely happy with my purchase .As fast as I expected .Yes I strongly recomend this product.

is fourth HD of this type i have purchased, just works..5*****


November 2018

Excellent service, delivery was quick and item was well packaged. The MX500 was easy to install and super easy to update the firmware on the drive (using an iso under Arch Linux). If you want a good fast 2.5" SATA SSD with support for TRIM you cant go too far wrong with a Crucial MX500 from CCL.


October 2018

Good product. Fairly good price.
