Micron quality - a higher level of reliability.
As a brand of Micron, one of the largest flash storage manufacturers in the world, the Crucial MX300 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 MX300 has been thoroughly tried, tested and proven. You’ll notice the difference.
Instantly improve system performance
The Crucial MX300 reaches read speeds up to 530 MB/s and write speeds up to 510 MB/s* on all file types so you can boot up almost instantly, reduce load times and accelerate demanding applications with ease. Plus, Dynamic Write Acceleration technology uses an adaptable pool of high-speed, single-level cell flash memory to generate blistering speeds throughout the drive’s long life.
Over 90x more energy efficient than a typical hard drive**
Energy Efficiency technology within the Crucial MX300 reduces the amount of active power usage that’s consumed by the drive. The Crucial MX300 extends your laptop’s battery life by using only 0.075 W of power, compared to a typical hard drive which uses 6.8 W.
Entrust your files to a drive that lasts
With an endurance rating of up to 220 TB total bytes written, the Crucial MX300 is engineered with Micron 3 D NAND to deliver years of fast performance. The 3 D NAND leverages larger NAND cells to improve performance and prolong endurance.
Protect your data with AES 256-bit hardware-based encryption, RAIN technology, Exclusive Data Defence technology and the durability inherent in SSD design.
Keep your system cool
In addition to lower active power usage, Adaptive Thermal Protection technology dynamically adjusts storage component activity. This helps keep your system cool and minimises the risk of damage caused by overheating.

Was my first time replacing HDD with SSD, with some reading and research, managed to do it without much problems.
Now the four year old laptop is seriously quick! Of course time will tell how well the drive performs.
If no updates here, means all is good :)
If anyone considering upgrading computer / laptop with SSD, go to Crucial UK website, find the free little software that will scan your computer and advise you which drive to buy. Then buy it from Amazon, you will save £££.
UPDATE... Four months on, laptop is working well. Battery lasts much longer with SSD.
Had a problem with a Crucial M4 until they finally fixed the firmware, this is the same issue (a long power cycle usually brings it back), but then it just randomly disappears again - completely unreliable. I have updated this MX300 525gb with the latest firmware, tried using different SATA ports and different SATA cables - either it hates my build of Windows or my motherboard, or I'm just unlucky as most reviews seem positive.
Loath to return as I got it at a great price on a lightning deal, but completely pointless if I can't rely on it staying available
Installed it into a brand new Dell 15 5567 laptop which had a pretty sluggish 1TB hard drive and makes a big difference.
Ordered the Sabrent USB 3.0 to SSD adapter with the hard drive and connected it, I installed the Acronis software that comes with the Crucial hard drive (via a download and supplied serial) and found it worked fine for me although some other people have had problems with it.
Going down in size from a 1Tb to 500Gb hard drive was now problem for the Acronis cloning software and was all done in about 1/2 Hr.
Drive cloned, opened up the laptop and removed the 1Tb drive and installed the Crucial.
Fired up straight away and was a lot quicker than the standard setup.
Would recommend you install the Crucial Storage Executive software from the Crucial website though as upon checking there was a firmware upgrade for the Hard drive and is easily installed via the Exectutive software. One thing to note though as the firmware upgrades the computer restarts and mine got stuck in a loop constantly restarting until I hit the F12 key to tell the systen to boot via the windows boot and not the crucial software update, then the system ran normally.
The HP Pavillion 15 (AU) itself was a nightmare to split open - not the "All Pavillions open like this" and even after all the screws were loosened it didn't want to pop open, but I was not going to be beaten.
I have done a couple of these before and used EaseUS (as beloved by Internet howto guides) but it didn't want to play ball as apparently there was a fault on the source disk, not that Windows could detect it.
So used the Crucial supplied utility which was straightforward - went with the automatic mode, it picked up the error and did a sector by sector copy. Although the source disk was nearly empty, it lied about the time and I left it running over night with 1 hour 20 minutes remaining of a 1:38 install after an hour of running.
Summary of all that - not for the novice or feint-hearted.
Come morning, one absolutely transformed PC - start up time from cold less than 10 seconds. Daughter grinning in disbelief. Job done. Slightly less hair than yesterday, but that's what fathers are for.
Really disappointed. If you think you have a great product, stand behind it with a warranty that is meaningful.
