What customers say about "Features"
Crucial BX100 250 GB SATA 2.5 Inch Solid State Drive
  • The Acronis software works fine to clone your existing disk to the ssd.
  • Installing was a doodle on my desktop having ample SATA and power leads available.
  • Easy to clone once the software is up and running.
  • SATA controller that is not fully compatible with the buggy Nvidia MCP79 controller used in many 2007-2011 Macs.
  • You should AVOID the software 'bundle' that comes with this drive.
Crucial MX200 250 GB SATA 2.5 Inch Solid State Drive
  • I created a recovery drive from Acronis and booted up with it and was able to copy my old drive to this new one in no time.
  • Free software to move your OS with a key. It's easy to use.
  • Acronis didn't work correctly for me. I didn't have space to clone my entire hdd onto the new drive, but I wasn't able to get it to exclude items.
