What customers say about "Key Specs"
Micron 1300 512GB Internal Solid State Drive
  • Easy installation and great speed. Perfect!
  • The best SSD in read/write speed and last longer.
  • Superb speed for all my needs.
  • Fast, low latency, excellent.
  • I am pleasantly surprised with how fast this drive is.
Crucial MX500 1TB 3D NAND 2.5" Internal Solid State Drive
  • This thing is a awesome. I highly recommend this product if you are needing a really fast loading external storage for your consoles.
  • I switched over to this Crucial 500gb SSD. Now everything works really fast and 500gb of space is pretty high.
  • This SSD takes about 20 seconds for boot. I was amazed. Microsoft Word took 40 seconds to open with the HDD. It opens in 6 seconds with the SSD.
  • Windows 10 starts immediately, login in a breeze and start to use applications without delay.
  • 500Gb will be plenty of space since I plan to link the large files for programs like Unity to my 3TB drive.

What customers say about "Features"
Micron 1300 512GB Internal Solid State Drive
  • Everything worked. It’s a great little SSD. Great features.
  • Great little SSD, works great in a Mac, I like it.
  • I drop this baby in a MacBook Pro mid 2012 and it’s rocking. Works well!
  • Works great with Windows 10 64 bit home. Good form factor for my case.
  • This thing maxes out the SATA interface!
Crucial MX500 1TB 3D NAND 2.5" Internal Solid State Drive
  • Laptop now runs perfectly and is so much more responsive than before. Its like I bought a brand new laptop.
  • It took about 4 hours to clone the SSD then I took out the HDD and replaced it with the SSD in my laptop. That was relatively easy too.
  • The disk form factor is exactly the same as the former 7mm Hard Disk and reinstalling is easy.
  • The software is astrious. Not a friendly user interface at all and it does not work properly.
  • After cloning I struggled to get system to recognize disk to boot.
