Great piece of kit, works a treat and way better than the noisy hdd. Shame the postal service let you down with a long winded delivery, but Im well satisfied with the result.

Transformed my 2011 MacBook Pro


last month

Great replacement for an old IDE drive. Product arrived on time, was easy to clone thanks to Acronis and an IDE to USB cable (bought seperately). Configuring the drive after installing and turning on the boost facility really make this zip along. Gave my old Dell 1749 a much needed boost.


last month

Fitted into my early 2011 macmini. My old standard hard drive was so slow it was driving me mad. The new drive works a dream fast access to all applications especially Photoshop with no spinning wheel. To be honest I wish I had taken the plunge and changed it years ago. However at about 60 for a 500 gig SS Drive it's a bargain.

I decided to upgrade my new PC build with an SSD drive, rather than just putting my aging HHD drive, which was a cause of slow boot ups in my previous machine. I did my research and decided on the Crucial MX500 500gig SSD. The price was right, Crucial are up there with best for quality and speed, plus Crucial make cloning your old HDD drive mega easy. Within 30 mins I was fitting the MX500 into a drive bay, my machine booted to the lock screen in Windows 10 in 28 seconds, WOW. I highly recommend the Crucial MX500 2.5 inch SSD, you won't be disappointed.

The biggest advantage of SSDs is that they speed up booting and loading software, and the three of these I bought this year have done this. The oldest one is only 9 months old and certainly hasn't caused any concern. The other two were bought and installed 4 weeks ago. I opted for Crucuial because because they have a reputation for reliability.

good. but now it seems I'm on a spam email list.


5 months ago

Good and fast, and I'm amazed how cheap such large SSDs are these days. 500GB gives plenty of space for a Windows 10 install and a small catalogue of AAA games.

Product very very good. Delivery very fast, I always use CCL. Quality products at very good prices. Only quibble I got is with crucial.... I can't seem to download the acronis software to clone my drive.

Wanted to update my laptop drive to a SSD, I was looking at an Intel or the Crucial, both were a similar price. I chose the Crucial because it came with Acronis backup software but beware that you cannot use the Acronis software unless your laptop has space for two drives, would probably be okay in a desktop where you could add an extra drive. When you try to download the Acronis software it searches your computer for a Crucial SSD, wouldn't even find it in a USB caddy. Other than that it's a nice fast drive, boots to the desktop in about 7 seconds now.

Excellent! Very happy with it. It setup exactly as described and is so amazingly quick, it has exceeded my expectations. Thank you.

The Crucial MX500 2.5 " 500GB sata III Solid State Drive arrived when expected. It was packed in a fitted card box together with a 2mm spacer, needed if it replaced a 9mm thick drive. But it did not come with mounting screws which could have been a problem. I used it as an upgrade for a similar 120GB drive and it worked perfectly.

Works well with my aging 2011 MacBook Pro. No issues during set-up and has worked well for the last month or so since installed.

Fairly painless to install and once in works well. Certainly quicker than my old hard disk.

good price/performance SSD


November 2018

So I'm going to be real with anyone reading this, if I had a choice between Overclockers and CCL I wouldn't hesitate to choose CCL. The best prices I've seen on the products I want and the pretty good delivery options. Bought a CPU cooler and a case from OCUK and it was not cheap, coming to CCL next time. **I copied this over from another product but it's not a bot, I am a real person btw**


November 2018

Does what it says on the box with good support from Crucial

Very pleased with the performance of this SSD which I bought to install in an external hard drive caddy after reading many favourable online reviews. Hardware encryption is a bonus.

Nice drive -- so far very good .. Used to using SSD's and this is good. As good as most I have tried and decent for the money! thanks.

Great for price for my budget gaming build. Fast as well, From switch on to desktop in less than 10 seconds. Always love Crucial drives, use a Crucial M$ in my laptop. This will definitely do you if you are on a budget. It's very fast and loads my games very quickly. For it's price there isn't anything better quality wise.

Great drive, had no issues with it, its stupidly fast and decently priced

Absolutely amazing! This brought life back into my Mac Mini! It was so slow it took at least 2/3 minutes to open a web browser now with this SSD its opens within seconds! If your computer is slow you will definitely need this it will be like a new machine! Ill be upgrading to 1TB within the near future.
