Does your computer take forever to boot into Windows? Do programs take way too long to load? It’s no secret that swapping out your current mechanical hard drive for an SSD is a great solution to this problem. But just how much of a difference are we talking about? In this video I swap the 1TB 5400RPM mechanical hard drive that came with my HP Pavilion Laptop with a 525GB Crucial MX300 Solid State Drive and show you just how much more quickly my laptop boots. If you’re looking to make your computer run better than when it was new you’ll want to check this out. 🙂

  1. Hi, i would like to buy ssd but do not know which is better in terms of endurance. Benchmark website showing MLC crucial is better than mx500 is that true. I plan to buy MX500 crucial ssd. TIA

  2. if you include gaming, a GPU upgrade would be more noticeable over SSDs, but they're still definitely up their in terms of noticeable upgrades

  3. The failure rate of SSD by Crucial is high. Check the internet. I have my MacBook Pro with crucial ssd and for no apparent reason it died on me one day.

  4. Considering purchasing the same model Crucial (but a 1TB) for a lot cheaper than the going rate of that unit via an 'open box with warranty' on Kijiji, and a helluva lot cheaper than the popular brands like Samsung, or the PCI units. Not a lot of reviews/comparisons out there, so I thank you for basically supporting my hopes of making my computer boot faster, as well as load programs faster. I do photo and video editing- My current computer configuration with W7 takes an excruciating 4-5 minutes to boot up to a browser. A minute to load my video editing software, and I have (an older) i5with 8GB RAM. Thank you!

  5. Due to the inestability of the newests drivers of NVIDIA, it's not always a good idea to update the the lastest driver!

  6. Jesus H. Christ man! 4(!!!) Minutes into the video before you start with the actual tutorial. This is a huge waste of time and a blatant attempt to just fill the video to fulfill youtube's algorithms.

  7. Hi Thanks for the video! I want to swap my Crucial 525GB SSD from my 2010 Mac to my Toshiba laptop, but the Toshiba laptop only read the drive as 488GB and my Mac reads it as 525GB, why is that? What can be done so the SSD can be read as 525GB in my Toshiba Laptop?

  8. Well… Thanks for the video. Really helped me. I'd purchased this same SSD for my desktop due to its price, but since I'd used over 800 GB worth of my 2 TB 7200 RPM hard drive it would have been a pain to clone most of it. I didn't really know if it was worth the massive hassle. My boot times were respectable (~30 to login) and I was able to migrate more popular programs to the SSD. But after seeing the 10 second boot on what I assume to be DDR3 memory (versus my DDR4)… I think I'll go ahead and clear both drives to do the reinstall. Most of that 800 GB is just games anyway. Well this'll be fun. Thanks for the comparison.

  10. so… because I replaced the motherboard in my laptop I will need to buy a new copy of windows 10 if I ever need to reinstall the operating system? It came out of the factory as an ASUS X53e with a core i3, and now it is a K53SV with a core i7. The old board had minor issues that were annoying.
