Dropping from a 1TB hard drive was a doubt, however, with the RAM upgrade as well, I now have a laptop that would have set me back 10 times the combo price. And, the diagnostic tool took away any doubts as to what to buy.

Ccl is great when it comes to building new rig.

I bought this as a long overdue upgrade for my aging notebook PC. CCL appeared to have the best deal on the day and in went my order. Delivery was fast and installation of the drive was straightforward. I partitioned the drive and installed Ubuntu Studio. Wow! this drive has completely transformed my PC. It boots in a few seconds and the applications are more responsive than ever. It feels like I have a new computer. So, if you are thinking of upgrading an old computer that still has a spinning hard disk but aren't sure I'd say go for it.

Mr Michael Stokes

A top quality SSD at a very attractive price. An excellent upgrade for older PC's with standard SATA hard disk drives. Potentially the best value for money of any such upgrade so highly recommended.

Bought this Crucial MX500 ssd drive to update the hard drive on my laptop, what a difference in speed. Used the recommended software that came with the ssd drive to transfer my old drive's information to the ssd drive it was very easy with no issues at all. Would highly recommend this Crucial SSD drive.


8 months ago

Bought to improve my 3 or so year old desk top, unbelievably fast compared to the 7.200 W.D. hard drive it replaced. Used the recommended Acronis software to copy my old drive (Very easy). It comes with a 5 year warranty, so Crucial must have great faith in their product. This is the third one I've bought over the last 15 months.

Due to the invisible invaders we're told to watch out for the prices of SSDs has been steadily rising on Amazon where as CCL have generally held firm. Hence buying them here and the faster delivery at the moment. Amazon don't consider MX500 SSDs essential, I do. I've used many different SSDs and they're all miles faster than hard drives. However the MX500s do seem to make a system very responsive. A clue is not in it's maximum speed but in it's 4k speed and it's IOs per second, 95,000 of them. OK so Optaine does 500,000 but there are other SSDs that do a lot less than 95,000. The other thing is these are in a metal case where as other SSDs are in flimsy plastic by comparison.

Very well constructed. Performs perfectly. The Crucial Management app one can download is very good, reveals all system details relating to SSD's that are installed. I like it Colin

I've installed on my old laptop and now it takes just 20 second to boot win 10. It's defenetly beyound my expectations. And also any other operation is really quick. High quality product.

I replaced the hard disk in my laptop with this Crucial SSD. Previously my laptop used to take 3 or 4 minutes to start up but now it takes about 40 seconds and programmes load more quickly when I am using the computer. I find that I am using the computer more often now because it is quicker. Copying my hard disk information to the SSD was very easy and relatively quick with the downloadable software recommended and the installation of the SSD was easy.

Quick delivery with email support, fabulous. Dead easy to fit! Crucial has a step. By step short guide to install on windows or Mac. Make sure you have the O X system for your Mac any think below EL Captain youre in for a bumpy ride. My Mac is 6 times quicker. Windows pc is 5 times quicker. Both are ultra quiet. YOU KNOW WHAT BOTH PC & MAC ARE ALIVE AND KICKING!

Love it. Easy to buy from CCL, and good value. The Crucial ssd includes a code to use Acronis cloning software. It was completely straightforward to install using Acronis, with simple instructions, and no problems at all. This is the second Crucial/Acronis install I have done. Thoroughly recommended to give a new lease of life to an old computer, both desktop and laptop.

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.

Tom Shorland

Transformed my 2011 MacBook Pro


December 2019

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.


December 2019

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.


November 2019

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.

Good quality product at competitive price plus usual fastvservice


November 2019

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.


September 2019

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


August 2019

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.

Paul Bodell

April 2019

Excellent product, cloned my hard drive to it and booted up straight off, would recommend to anyone.

Derek Hewitt

April 2019

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.


March 2019

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.

G Stuart

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.


March 2019

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

Christopher Lingwood

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.

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.
