4 out of 5 eggsAn excellent compliment to Crucial SSD

Pros: This kit made installing the Crucial MX100 a breeze. Everything I needed was there. SATA cable, drive bracket, and the mounting screws-this includes screws to put the drive into the bracket as well as the screws to mount the bracket to your PC's drive bay. The Acronis HD software is included on a bootable CD to make cloning your old OS drive to the new SSD.

Cons: No real cons. I would have liked to have seen included a molex power to SATA power adapter. Also, the bracket cvan only accommodate 1 physical 2.5" Crucial SSD. Some other 3rd party brackets can actually accommodate 2 SSD's into their 2.5" to 3.5" brackets.

Other Thoughts: I bought this kit to make mounting the 512GB Crucial MX100 as well as migrating off my old mechanical OS drive as painless as possible. That being said, the 3.5" drive cage of my Coolermaster Centurion 590 was the real pain in this endeavor. The drive cage had rubber grommets for isolating vibration and the included drive screws for mounting to a drive bay were not long enough to get through the cage's mounting holes as well as the rubber grommets. So I had to remove the grommets and secure the mounting bracket to only one side of the drive cage. With the grommets removed the drive cage was a tad wider than the bracket. I suspect most people putting this into a conventional 3.5" bay will have no mounting issue.

Also, the included Acronis HD software booted and found my drives fine. Cloned them as well. Only issue I had was that the initial splash screen of the software recognized my mouse, however once I selected the cloning task I wanted, that subsequent tool's UI did NOT recognize my mouse. I thought it locked up and crashed. I was relieved to find I could navigate using tab key and select via Enter. It was clumsy and clunky to make my selections but it did work and clone my drive. So hopefully that will save someone some aggravation.

For the cost of buying a bracket, SATA cable, and the included software, I thought this was more cost effective than piecing these items together separately.
