How reliable is this hard drive?
The Crucial BX100 solid state drive is significantly more reliable than a typical hard drive. In the computer industry, storage drive reliability is measured in mean times between failures (MTBF). Most hard drives have MTBF ratings of 0.6 million hours whereas the BX100 clocks in at 1.5 million hours. This gives you an SSD that has been proved to be 2.5 times as reliable as a standard hard drive.
How easy is the SSD to install?
Installing a new hard drive can be a daunting prospect if you haven’t done it before - but it doesn’t have to be. Installing into a laptop or a computer is easy enough as long as you remember to use an anti-static wrist strap which prevents you from potentially damaging any smaller components within the computer. The SATA connection allows you to just unplug the pre-existing hard drive to which you can then plug the new one in.
