Summary: Crucial M500 Series 960GB SSD Meets specs on my old intel machine. I did a clean install of Windows 10, onto USB drive, using RUFUS. Then removed old SATA HDD. Do Not Reformat SSD before use. Rufus will take care of alignment, when you boot into GPT BIOS.
Summary: Crucial M500 Series 960GB SSD These drives have a very reliable internal architecture & are still extremely quick. If you're moving up from an HDD you won't believe the difference in speed and boot time. For an almost 1TB SSD at this price you can't go wrong.
Summary: Crucial M500 Series 960GB SSD I have a version of the M500 but its only the 480GB sized one. These are rock solid! The M500 is my second crucial SSD. I have two, the original I had still works. I only needed an M500 because I needed more space. I still use the first one as a backup.
Summary: Crucial M500 Series 960GB SSD I cloned W 8.1 to this drive on my desktop, put it in and it fired right up. I have been using it now for just 2 weeks with out any problems so far.
