Crucial MX100 SATA 2.5" 7mm (with 9.5mm adapter) Internal Solid State Drive
The choice between speed and capacity is over. Choose both.

Traditionally, SSDs have offered powerful speeds and extra features, but at a high cost per gigabyte. Enter the Crucial MX100 SSD. Leveraging years of R&D and the latest NAND technology, the Crucial MX100 offers a low cost per GB, combined with unrelenting performance and one of the most complete feature sets available.

Micron quality - a higher level of reliability.

As a brand of Micron, one of the largest flash storage manufacturers in the world, the Crucial MX100 is backed by the same quality and innovation that has produced some of the world's most advanced memory and storage technologies. With over a thousand hours of prerelease validation testing and hundreds of SSD qualification tests, the Crucial MX100 has been thoroughly tried, tested, and proven. Make the switch to the Crucial MX100 SSD and start outlasting and outperforming your hard drive.

Feature-packed capacity. Proven reliability.

The Crucial MX100 provides plenty of cost-effective storage for your photos, music, videos, and documents - all while backing your data with a higher level of reliability than a hard drive or competing SSD. Note:1 GB = 1 billion bytes. Actual usable capacity may vary.


Run your system longer than ever before - using less power.

With Extreme Energy Efficiency technology, the Crucial MX100 is up to 89% more energy efficient than a typical hard drive. * * Hard drive active average power use based on published specs of 1TB Western Digital Blue WD10JPVX internal hard drive. According to NPD data published February 2014, this was one of the most popular hard drives available and an accurate reflection of a common internal hard drive.

Attain consistently fast speeds without compromising the reliability of your data.

Our engineers created RAIN technology to protect your data at the component level, similar to how RAID is used with multiple hard drives. This enterprise-class technology increases the security and protection of your data to a level that's rarely available in consumer-class SSDs.

Keep your memories, photos, and files safe.

When a photo or file gets corrupted, it often becomes unusable. Prevent this from happening in the first place with the Crucial MX100 SSD, which arms every storage component with four layers of Exclusive Data Defense to guard against corrupt files.

Push your drive to the limit and avoid overheating.

Adaptive Thermal Protection technology enables the Crucial MX100 to dynamically adjust storage component activity based on how you're using the drive, allowing your system to stay cool and react to changes in use.

Do more - faster.

Get true 550 MB/s sequential reads on both compressible and incompressible data - and leave your old 177 MB/s hard drive in the dust. ** **Performance level based on comparative AS SSD benchmark ratings of 512GB Crucial MX100 SSD and 1TB Western Digital Blue 7200 RPM hard drive (WD10EZEX-00U). Actual performance levels may vary based on benchmark used and individual system configuration. Test setup: Intel DZ87KLT-75K motherboard, Intel i7-4770K 3.50GHz processor, BIOS Rev. 0446, and Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit operating system using AS SSD test suite.

Save and transfer files in seconds rather than minutes.

Our exclusive Native Write Acceleration technology spreads the drive's workload across several elements, enabling you to write data in seconds rather than minutes.

Boot time to XP login screen is now 5 seconds.

It included a crippled version of the Acronis software so that you could clone your drive and install your harddrive image on this SSD!

My laptop works much faster with this hard drive!

Size Name: 512 GB
Received my MX100 512GB today and swapped it into my 2009 MBP and put the existing 256 GB 5400 RPM hard drive into an external case. Cloned over the hard drive, enabled full disk encryption, and moved on without any issues so far. Granted it has only been a few hours, but I can see the difference immediately. My 5 year old machine has new life. Bootup went from 3 minutes to 7 seconds. I tend to keep multiple tabs open on my web browser and it definitely is moving faster. I could tell on my old hard drive that I was spending lots of time paging to the disk (even with 8GB of RAM).

Also, some may say the MX100 does not provide top-of-the-line service. I say that is not needed for average users. The price vs. performance equation must favors the MX100. Also, at least on my machine, my SATA bus can only max out at 3 gbps, so no to pay for performance I won't be able to utilize. Also, this likely is another speed bump to my machine since the original HD had a link speed of 1.5 gobs.

I am looking forward to my machine continuing to "hold its own" against modern system. Definitely worth the cost to move to SSD and I won't ever be back to a traditional HD.

Size Name: 512 GB
Replaced a Crucial M4 in my mid-2012 MBP. Gave the M4 to my daughter to put in her 2010 MBP.

Overall, Crucial is a top of the line manufacturer with a stellar rep for reliable SSDs. This new MX100 is no exception. Put this in my MBP, formatted and restored from Time Machine and done!

Black Magic is showing 499 write and 502 reads. I paid $219 delivered for 512GB. This is a tremendous price for this capacity. I really wanted to get the M550 in 1TB, but for this price, I just couldn't justify it. I've decided if I do decide I want 1TB, I'm going to get another MX100 and run my system in RAID 0.

Again, overall quality of Crucial SSDs is phenomenal. There marvel controllers are excellent (IMO) and really doesn't require TRIM. Although I run TRIM anyway.

Don't think twice, this is an excellent consumer grade SSD from a reliable/proven SSD manufacturer at the absolutely best price available.

Size Name: 512 GB Verified Purchase
Purchased this to replace a 60GB SSD (also by Crucial) I'd installed in my initial build. Silly me to think I could have gotten by with only 60GB for a boot drive on a Microsoft system. When I bought this, I had less than 2 GB of space left and performance was significantly affected. I was worried that I'd have to reinstall everything, but pulled the trigger anyway.

I did not know that this product comes with a free version of Acronis, which was amazingly helpful with creating a full bootable backup of my old SSD, which I then restored to the new SSD. In all, the whole process of migrating to the new SSD, including downloading and installing Acronis, creating the system backup, installing the new SSD, restoring the backup to the new SSD, and removing the old SSD took less than 2 hours.

The only hang-up I experienced were in the step-by-step instructions from Acronis on completing the backup and restore. Apparently their help files are a bit outdated (i.e. screen shots and menus reference a previous version of the product, not their current version which has slightly different screens and menu options). Once I figured this out, I was flying through the process.

All in all, this was an easy, smooth process, with zero issues. When I did the final re-boot to the new SSD, I was holding my breath, concerned that I would still have to end up reinstalling everything...very relieved to see Windows load successfully. I've had zero problems with the drive since installing it and performance has returned to what I'd expect of an SSD. Of course, now having 422GB free space on my boot drive means room for lots more Windows Updates, and a few programs loaded on the boot drive, if I'd like.

Size Name: 256 GB Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
The Crucial MX100 SSD is a great drive for the money. I previously had a 240 GB Monster Digital Daytona SSD in my MacBook Pro. I never had any problems with it, but was always a bit skeptical about it. The whole line of Daytona drives was discontinued after a bad run of 120 GB drives that ruined the brand. I have emailed Monster Digital's support several times after a firmware upgrader they provided did not work on my system, and never got any response back from them. Needless to say I never was able to update the drive's firmware, and that worried me. Monster Digital's support stinks, I would never get their products again.

Crucial's support on the other hand is pretty good. I chatted with one of their representatives from their website after I installed the MX100 and he was helpful, knowledgeable, and quick with my answer. It's good to know that Crucial's got my back!

Before installing the Crucial MX100 SSD, I cloned my MacBook Pro, placing the drive in my StarTech dock and using Carbon Copy Cloner to copy OS X, and Winclone Pro to clone the Boot Camp Windows partition. I didn't use the downloadable Acronis software that Crucial provided, but I use Acronis to backup my Windows partition and have never had any issues restoring from it. The cloning took a few hours, but I just went off and did other things. I tested the drive, booting from the hard drive dock, and everything was fine, so I went ahead with the install.

Installing the Crucial MX100 SSD is quite simple on my late 2008 MacBook Pro. This model has a removable battery, and the hard drive sits right next to it. Before beginning, first remove the battery, then unplug the computer from AC power and remove any other cables connected to it (USB, Ethernet, etc.
