Answer by Website User on 27th April 2020
You have the option to use NVMe M.2 storage on that motherboard. You won't get the full 32gbps but you will get 10gbps compared to 6gbps with SATA. You can possibly chose one of the less expensive NVMe drives that does 2200MB/s and you get 1000MB/s.

You just need a sata power connector from your PSU. This can be installed into a desktop PC as long as the case supports a 2.5" drive.

Speed up any system by moving from spinning discs to SSD. Breathes life into older laptops, so much infact that this was to speed up a desktop after previously fitting one onto a laptop.

Excellent service just installed the solid state drive in my computer using a cloned software its improved the performance of my 6 year old computer, very satisfied. I can recommend this company and would use them again.

I bought this SSD to replace a 750GB HDD in a i3 laptop, I cloned the HDD using Macrium Reflect software and made sure that I was able to use all of the space on the SSD. It took a while to copy but once it had finished I removed the HDD in the laptop and fitted the SSD in its place. No problems were encountered and I now have a quick laptop which is working so much faster than before and have been pleasantly pleased with the performance increase, this upgrade has meant that I did not have to purchase a new laptop.

Great product. Crucial's scanner software checked my system and recommended this drive. CCL had it in stock. Was delivered quickly and very easy to fit with Crucials downloadable Acronis cloning software. Took about an hour which included vacuuming the inside of the computer case to remove xx years of dust.

This product is amazing value for money which is why this is my second crucial SSD. Thanks to this brilliant product I can also keep updating COD Warzone for another month LOL.

Does exactly the job intended; ie. replaced the hdd on my laptop. Software was available for download to copy old drive to new drive (but I didn't do this as I wanted to start with a fresh copy of Windows. All was good and ... wow ... the laptop is better than new, boot and shutdown is so fast as is starting programs. I don't know how long the drive will last but expect a good few trouble free years. Thr Crucial "Storage Executive" software isn't the best and often doesn't recognise the drive on first or second click of the function I want to use but I will only use it occasionally to check for firmware updates or to check drive health. All in all, so far, so very good.

Was considering buying a new laptop, but Covid probably suggested caution before spending all that money. Instead did a bit of research on changing from standard HDD to SSD. I now have a new laptop! Fantastic! What used to be a 5 to 6 minute reboot time is now down to less than 35 seconds. What a delight, my software works like lightning, and now happily spending time sorting and editing photos, it is no longer an arduous task. I highly recommend.

Used the Crucial online compatibility tool to be recommended this SSD and it's very fast compared to the old HDD that was in the laptop. Made a huge difference. I like the solid construction of the Crucial SSD's much more premium construction to others I could mention.

September 2020

Fantastic ssd hard drive, easy to setup and load windows 10 with no problems at all. The only problem was that it said Acronis true image is in the box and its not, but a link to the website was provided for the fee version to download and was easy to setup. All in all a great buy and good price for a 1 tb ssd.


September 2020

Once set up through disk management, has been working fast and fine for a month. Best cost to performance ratio in its category.

May 2020

Purchased this to replace a failing 3.5 hard drive and to retain all data on it, I also purchased a USB to Sata cable at the same time, Transferring data was a breeze with the downloaded software from Crucial. Installation was easy as i had a spare caddy in my pc, Changed HD letter and everything ran as it should only faster. Would buy again when its time to replace other drive

So far, so good. I used two of the drives to replace a RAID array and so far they have behaved perfectly. The install was easy and with good cloning software the system was up and running within 2 hours. If all carries on as is, I shall be very pleased.
