Updated my late 2011 Macbook Pro which was feeling a bit slow to this crucial MX300 750GB, very easy to swap the drives, comes with a 7mm to 9.5mm spacer to make it the same size as the HDD it replaces.

This greatly improved the computer’s speed, start up is quicker, and all the apps are much quicker, including safari, photoshop opens in an instant and you can add photo in an instant and start work on that photo in an instant, goodbye pinwheel. I would actively recommend the upgrade from HDD to this SSD to anyone on any OS. Uses less energy, less heat, less whirring of the fan.

My drive came with data migration software by Acronis, unfortunately this does not work with Mac Os, so I used a 30 day free trial to carbon copy cloner. Simply attach the new drive via a external HDD enclosure (multiple available on amazon), format the new drive, open ccc, select source as the old drive, and destination as the new drive, hit clone and it will clone everything (OS, software, movies, pictures etc). Once complete you can restart your computer and hold down alt or option and select your new drive as the boot drive to test it’s worked.

You can then swap out the drives following an online guide, I did not disconnect the battery. You need a small phillips and a Torx T6 screw driver, very easy takes 5 minutes, I would recommend wearing a static line or keep a finger touching the metal case of the mac to avoid damage by static.

Boot holding alt or option and select your new drive to boot from, once booted go into system preferences - startup disk - click the new hard drive and hit restart. Done.

You are then left with a bootable back up using your old drive in the HDD enclosure. So glad for cloning as I thought I would have to reinstall all my software, which is a lot.

Crucial Storage Management tool does not currently work with mac, but the drive is fully trim compatible.

Without consulting me (her IT-technician husband-to-be) first, my partner recently ordered a new laptop to replace her ageing Sony VIAO which was, by all accounts, starting to look and perform like a scabby sloth. "Great!", I somewhat optimistically thought, "That should stop her grumbling about it being slow all of the time!".

Then, after asking her what the specs were like, she shrugged and shown me the order; it was a Lenovo IdeasPad 510-15ISK with the following specs:
i5-6200U CPU... Good. Far better than the i3 it was replacing.
8Gb DDR4 RAM... Yeah, that'll do for what she uses it for.
GTX940MX... Dedicated graphics? Blimey.
15.4" Full HD IPS screen... Wow. This is going to be great!
1Tb 5400rpm hard drive... NOOOOOOOO!

Once she'd got the laptop and handed it to me, my fears about the last line on the specs listed above come true. Her new, shiny, laptop was also performing somewhat like the scabby sloth of a VAIO that it was replacing, thanks to its crappy 5400RPM hard drive, which was bottle-necking the whole system and holding it back. Starting up took nearly 2 minutes and everything ran incredibly slowly; even slower than the VAIO.

There was clearly only one thing to do; replace that hard drive with an SSD - so I bought a 275Gb Crucial MX300 and it arrived the next day, thanks again to Prime.

Swapping it out couldn't have been any easier; it was a case of undoing one screw, pulling out the hard drive (while cursing at it), popping the new Crucial SSD in, and installing Windows. It all went very quickly and without any problems and the moment the PC done its first reboot I felt a wave of relief. It was now booting up in under ten seconds and performing like a new laptop should.

The Crucial MX300 Limited Edition 750GB, for me, was pretty good. Prospective customers should read Tom's Hardware's write-up on this disk, where he criticises its performance - largely the controller. Even so, I was prepared to buy it: why? I got an Amazon Prime superdeal on this disk, just below £110. Amazing value for a 750GB SSD. And it was going into an older PC, which didn't have the fastest SATA interface, or the fastest RAM, or the fastest anything. So its performance would be hindered by the older PC architecture, as much as by its controller.

Crucial/Micron also offer 2 extra pieces of software: Storage Executive, which monitors the disk (smart parameters) and provides Momentum caching, which gives a big boost to performance (you end up benchmarking your RAM....). I run a dual Windows10/Linux system, and initially had problems with my new disk - but it turns out that Windows fastboot and hibernate facilities, leave the drive in an unsafe state! (ie it hasn't cleared down all the caches before shutdown) - nothing at ll to do with Storage Executive, which behaves properly on closing down.

The second piece of software: a copy of Acronis Image was less successful. I had some problems with it, but Micron/Crucial support came back to me to help out, very quickly. A last comment: such a large drive is of mixed benefit on an old system which uses MBR disks (on BIOS motherboards) as opposed to the newer GPT disks on UEFI motherboards, because of the limits of 4 partitions on a drive with MBR (unless you create extended partitions). A dual-boot system soon uses up the 4 partitions, leaving no partition for the large filespace.
