The easiest way to speed a system up

on 12/14/2012

I was skeptical about the DataPlex speed claims. Here's my numbers: before installing, boot time ~35. After installing SSD + Dataplex software, boot time 13 seconds. And it gets faster over time. Read More

It works as advertised. I have an i7 3770K and was frustrated with my 1.5 TB drive's inability to keep up. I've read where it's been said that you really don't get the 8 times faster start ups that crucial claims...Bull....! You surly will. If you wouldn't have to wait for BIOS and that stupid window thing at the beginning it would be almost instantaneous. AND you don't have to wait for the hard drive to catch up to start a program which also starts instantly. It's a great solution . Read More

Product Overview

Upgrade your Windows® 7-based PC with Crucial® Adrenaline to start up twice as fast and boost data access speeds by up to 8 times.*

SSD-like performance. Hard Drive capacity
While traditional hard drives offer high capacities to store a lot of content, solid state drives provide enhanced performance to access that content much more quickly. By using solid state technology as a cache for your existing hard drive, Crucial Adrenaline offers the best of both worlds: SSD-like performance without compromising the capacity of your hard drive.

How Crucial Adrenaline works.
A simple upgrade that allows you to keep your existing hard drive, Crucial Adrenaline comprises a 50GB Crucial m4 SSD, 3.5" adapter bracket, SATA cable, and Dataplex(tm) caching software**. The solution intelligently places, or "caches", the most frequently needed files (active data) on the SSD and leaves less frequently used files (inactive data) on the hard drive. The result? Faster application load times and increased boot speed.

An easy upgrade.
Because Crucial Adrenaline works with your existing hard drive, there's no need to transfer files or programs. Simply connect the SSD to your motherboard with a standard SATA cable, start the computer, and then install the Dataplex caching software. Once the software is installed and the system has been rebooted, the software seamlessly integrates your existing hard drive and Crucial Adrenaline into a single storage system. Fully automated, the software then runs in the background and requires no user management.

Quality you can depend on.
Crucial is a trusted name when it comes to SSDs, and that's no coincidence. As a brand of Micron, a leading innovator and manufacturer of SSDs, we work with our engineers to refine them, test them, and back them with terrific service, support, and a limited three year warranty.
