I've tried the BX and MX SSDs... Very pleased with them both however I could not get the Crucial Acronis tool to recognise the drive as a crucial drive so I had to paddle my own canoe with free utilities. Heat for the price

If you haven't tried it already I think macrium reflect does a good job and I've had no issues with it in the past
I used Minitool Partition Wizard which was pretty fuss free. Cloned the disc and swapped them over. It's a shame I had to faff with downloading and installing the Acronis tool but all good in the end. Totally transformed a couple of old Lenovo X230's. Happy boy and wife and a happy wallet for me
Only major difference between MX and BX is power loss protection and write endurance rating. Both drives saturate sata port and crucial slightly tweak firmware to give MX a slight speed advantage.
