I Upgraded my Laptop Hard Drive to an SSD (Crucial MX300 525GB) – How much faster is it now?

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. 🙂
