  • Can't beat this for it's speed and capacity at this price.
  • I bought a small capacity 275GB drive because I needed it to run software not store data. I use my old drive in an external drive bay for storage.

  • Since install it’s been an immediate and huge improvement with Read and write speeds 4x faster according to speed tests! Been working great and have no complaints. Would recommend!

What customers say about "Features"
Crucial BX100
  • The Acronis software works fine to clone your existing disk to the ssd.
  • Installing was a doodle on my desktop having ample SATA and power leads available.
  • Easy to clone once the software is up and running.
  • SATA controller that is not fully compatible with the buggy Nvidia MCP79 controller used in many 2007-2011 Macs.
  • You should AVOID the software 'bundle' that comes with this drive.
Crucial MX300 275GB 3D NAND Internal SSD
  • This drive is somewhat lighter than the drive it replaced and the form factor is virtually identical.
  • I used it to upgrade an old laptop & the form factor was perfect. It fit the HD compartment exactly as it should.
  • Running it at Sata 3 GB/s & working smoothly so far.
  • These drives utilize Micron 3D-Nand technology and have extremely fast upload/download transfer rates. They are extremely reliable and are priced substantially lower than other manufacturers.
  • Acronis cloning was a bit of a pain. Took too much time to clone but after a 3 hours of troubleshooting I managed to clone my Windows 10 installation successfully.
