Packaging: The drive was packaged in clear plastic case with a sheet of paper providing a link to Crucial (manufacturer) support website for instructions and relevant software for disc cloning (if you are replacing a drive and want the data 'cloned' onto new drive). There was also a bracket that can be used to fit this 7 mm drive into a 9 mm slot (depending on laptop internal components arrangement).
Installation: All steps were clearly explained and easy to follow. Please note that if you wanted to clone the drive in this manner you would need to also purchase a SATA to USB cable (very cheap and easy to buy, ~£5) or you could opt for some kind of 'starter kit' package which includes this.
Performance: Absolutely incredible! SSDs are a world apart from their HDD equivalents - More power efficient, faster and a lot quieter! This is a very new drive (released Dec 2017/Jan 2018 here im UK) so has all the latest technologies (details on website) and features. Reviews so far have been very positive and has even been rated higher than the market dominant Samsung Evo 50 that came out as far back as 2014/2015.
Value: On release price was ~£230 for 1TB model and £123 for 500 GB which is cheaper than rival drives and testing from reviewers suggest even better value considering price/performance/capacity.
You will require specialist screwdrivers to fit this to a MacBook Pro, both for removing the base cover, and separately for removing the hard drive. They are available on Amazon for <£10 (although the latter I ended up getting from a local "pound store"!)
I have never changed a hard-drive before, but I found this *was quicker and easier* than they said or than I expected. If anything, that was the easy bit.
Getting the OS onto the new drive working was much harder/longer process, but once done reloading all the data from TimeMachine was then quite simple.
At the same time I swapped the 2 x 2gb of RAM for 2 x 4gb of RAM (because one of the RAM had failed, causing a black screen and three beeps on a repeating cycle).
The combination of the new SSD and the slight boost in RAM means her laptop fires up from "complete shut-down to logged in on the desktop screen" in 34 seconds (in Mac 10.13 High Sierra). It really is very fast, and has given her laptop quite a bit of extra life. I've used Crucial for RAM upgrades in the past and they've been great, which is why I trusted them for the SSD. Total cost of SSD, RAM and screwdrivers <£200 which is really good value for a couple of years worth of use of a MacBook Pro.
I disconnected an extra (old, mechanical) drive I had inside and replaced it with the new SSD, using the same cables. The cloning instructions for Acronis True Image are easy to follow and offer various "tools" in addition.
My whole transfer took around 20 minutes, with the satisfying "Disk was successfully cloned" message appearing at the end and final advice steps on using the new drive.
All in all, a straightforward and worthwhile procedure. Recommended !
I'll consider Crucial SSDs next time I make an upgrade to my PC – in the past I've been strictly Samsung.
It's worth noting that the frustration-free packaging takes the form of a small cardboard envelope with a plastic clamshell around the drive so it fits through your letterbox if you happen to be out when your delivery arrives – great idea.
Five stars – would buy again.
