Overall Review: Wrote a bad review about this after having freezing issues, and doing a lot of research I heard from many sources that Crucial SSD's wouldn't work with AHCI enabled, so that I thought I had to switch to IDE.

"Crucial Response: Thank you for purchasing the MX500 and for your review. I'm sorry to hear that you have experienced freezing issues since installing your new SSD. This can often be resolved by making sure you have the latest AHCI SATA drivers installed for your system. These can be found on your manufacturer's support site. We also cover how to switch to standard Microsoft AHCI drivers in the link below.
If this does not resolve the freezing issues, or if you have any questions about the process, please contact us using any of the methods below.
