This really speeded up my PC By:
I travel quite a bit with my laptop and have been frustrated with the time it takes to boot up and shut down (especially when I'm in an airport). But now, with the solid-state hard drive, the speed of both are quite quick. Also, I no longer worry so much about damage to the hard drive from being dropped or shaken as might happen to an electro-mechanical hard drive. It was very easy to install so I'm glad I bought the SATA III adapter cable at the same time I purchased the hard-drive. I am very happy with this product.
Very fast, especially if you use Samsung RAPID technology. By:
Works very good. good value.

Great!

PC Far faster By:
I upgraded from my old hard drive and as most people have mentioned, start-up times are far faster. So are load times for programs. Very easy install, but I am experienced in building my own boxes.
Hands down the best SSD on the market By:
Whatever size of SSD you choose from the Samsung 860 EVO line you will not be disappointed. These are the creme de la creme of the SSD storage market. I have 3 varying in size and a previous EVO line in my machines and these have never disappointed me. Zero failures, zero problems, just lightning speed and satisfaction.
Great value SSD By:

Blazing Fast, Made for Windows 10 By:
Wonderful hard drive.Only works on Windows 10 but with that being said I get speeds of 3,500+ mbs / 1,500+ sequential read/write speeds.Very fast, boot times are very fast. In terms of the differences between this and an SSD (which I have 2 of, and used primarily before this) you're going to notice it in boot time and when you're copying files over.Is it overkill? Who knows. Is it nice to have? Hell yeah. Speeds are insane, installation is a breeze with Windows 10.
ssd By:
i install this toll at my desktop. it works very well.
Great SSD By:
A solid drive, but the price (for the 2TB) might be a hard pill to swallow.
Love it! By:
Excellent product. Only gripe is I wish I had bought 2!

El envío fue muy rápido(DHL) y el paquete llegó completo y sin daños.

Very fast and easy to install By:
My 3 year old all-in-one with Intel 6th generation i7 processor and 8gb memory became slow to a point of being almost unusable. This didn’t make any sense. At first I blamed it on Windows and started thinking about reinstalling but then decided to try upgrading storage to SSD. After reading good reviews I chose 1TB Crucial MX500. Boy, what a difference! The computer is better than new, responsive, fast-fast-fast.Installation was easy. Cloned the old drive with included Acronis software with one click. The SSD fit perfectly in the drive bay in place of the old hard drive, I didn’t need to use a spacer. The hardest part was taking the all-in-one apart.Two things to keep in mind: - Unless you have an unused drive bay you need a USB-to-SATA adapter to clone the old drive - Bes sure to download Crucial Storage Executive software and update the firmware after installing the drive. It is mentioned in the user guide but I didn’t pay attention and didn’t realize that these things have upgradable firmware.
AMAZING Speed! Wife became amorous with NEW computer performance! By:
Like a new computer! Did I mention that my wife got VERY amorous after seeing the change in her computer?
Crucial Does it again! By:
This is for the 1TB, what not to like, Price is a steal and great performance drive as usual.
meh By:
If you want to breathe new life into your old Mac/laptop this is a great card to use.

Gave new life to my unibody 2008 Macbook Pro By:
Plugged the drive into my MBP using a SATA-USB cable, cloned the existing 5400 RPM HDD using SuperDuper, shut down, swapped the HDD out for the SSD, started up and everything was magically faster. Also my battery life is significantly improved thanks to no longer having to spin up the disk.
