I bought one of these to replace a 240 SanDisk one due to drive getting full but it crashes all the time with DPC VIOLATION, Crucials support has not worked, blaming Windows 10 drivers. Just advising.
Great drives. Use these all the time with OSX and Win10x64. Crucial are Micron who hold the patents to most of the NAND SSD drive tech and always been solid. Rule of thumb...try and leave 15-20% free space on drive so TRIM is effective under Windows. Won’t work with OSX as Apple don’t allow this function with 3rd party drives without removing certs.

In fairness that is a very common driver issue. If you just cloned the previous disk I'd say go for a clean install.

Had 2x Crucial drives in the past and no such issues.
I have one. Bought it March 6th for £53.85 from Amazon so I'm not sure this is a deal?
Not had any issues with it whatsoever though.
Prices fluctuate and this is one of the lowest prices its been, so yes it is a good deal. Not the best, it has been £49.98 once, but even so it is a great drive for a decent price.

Any real enhancements if I was to replace the internal drive in a Xbox one s with this? I've seen big improvements with the Xbox one X since changing to a SSD but I'm not sure if the S model is worth doing because it's not SATA 3.

You'd be better off installing it in a hard drive enclosure for the one S. Since it has USB 3 IIRC.

I always load in first when playing a game that's installed on my usb 3 SSD enclosure drive

To be fair that's a driver issue. I use crucial SSD drives in home and work and they've been spot on.

Mac OS can enable trim on third party SSD’s, as long you are running El Capitan or later

Ah cool. That’s great news :-) Thanks for the update
Always had good experiences with Crucial SSD drives
I have 2 of them with no problems. 1 a clean install 1 a cloned drive both good
Wow that's a sweet price for 500gb. To think they used to be so damn pricey in years gone by.

I suppose the added hype of M2 SSDs has helped dampen the prices of SATA SSDs.
Love crucial drives they are great
Waiting to snap up some delicious 1TB 860 EVOs once they get a little closer to £100. But this is nice, +heat!

Yeah finances were a little tighter back then so I'd missed out; hoping for a similar price drop soon (maybe Prime day?) You're welcome mate!

Apple probably still charges 1,000 bones for this for upgrading their computers, rather than the default 2GB hard disk.

I've disabled windows updates and all OK for a few days, Things like this shouldn't happen these days. They have said to send back but too much hassle.
When buying Crucial drives make sure you install Crucial Storage Executive.

It does the firmware update on the drive in addition to other stuff
Anyone had any issues replacing a larger (512gb) HDD with a smaller SSD so long as the bigger drive isn't full? Just wondering about issues when cloning, specifically on OSX
My parents 2012 iMac could do with a boost in performance from an SSD

Use MiniTool Partition Wizard Free

to reduce size of HDD before cloning.
