5 out of 5 eggsGreat SSD

This review is from: Crucial M500 120GB SATA 2.5" 7mm (with 9.5mm adapter) Internal Solid State Drive CT120M500SSD1

Pros: This SSD is fast, even in my early 2009 MacBook (Macbook 5,2 plastic w/ Geforce 9400M)
Boots OS X or Windows in seconds on my Macbook
No more waiting to open up applications such as Firefox, it just opens.

Cons: Slower write speed, but I knew it had a slower write speed before, so still 5 eggs

Other Thoughts: Bought this for my Macbook to replace a really slow 500GB HDD (5400RPM.) It made a HUGE difference. The HDD would boot Win7 or OS X in around 2-4 minutes. This SSD boots in seconds!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat SSD for the price

This review is from: Crucial M500 120GB SATA 2.5" 7mm (with 9.5mm adapter) Internal Solid State Drive CT120M500SSD1

Pros: Cheap SSD, great performance, easy install. Great for a bargain build for the office or home. Loads up Windows 7 less than 30 seconds and opens up programs and folders like nothing.

Cons: Doesn't come with 3.5" to 2.5" bay tray.

Other Thoughts: SSDs are getting cheaper each month. This is a great bargain for the price and the speed and quality is great.

When it comes down to SSDs, I will only consider Crucial and Samsung.

5 out of 5 eggsSo Far So Good

This review is from: Crucial M500 120GB SATA 2.5" 7mm (with 9.5mm adapter) Internal Solid State Drive CT120M500SSD1

Pros: I use this SSD on XenServer 6.2.0 host and it works fine. VM's storage I use NFS for HA capability. Any hosts not needing xenmotion you can create on SSD too.

Cons: Cannot verify firmware version from Windows 7 have to boot from firmware update ISO via CD, not really a con, just verify before I install XenServer onto it.

5 out of 5 eggsThe hometown choice

This review is from: Crucial M500 120GB SATA 2.5" 7mm (with 9.5mm adapter) Internal Solid State Drive CT120M500SSD1

Pros: -Good SSD offering for a device that doesn't need a 3.5" adapter (see minor con below)
-Performed as expected (close to specs)
-Good history with Crucial products & support

Cons: Minor con (for some): No 3.5" adapter bracket is included, so if that is needed, you will need to choose another drive or pay extra for one

Other Thoughts: I have tried most of the brands of SSD, most have lived up to the specs & reviews and this SSD is no exception. I will happily buy Crucial SSD Drives & SDRAM when the ratings and price are favorable, since part (or all) of them are manufactured locally, in my childhood hometown. The value was there, in this case, and the drive met my needs. I did end up needing a 3.5" adapter for the upgrade I put this into, but I had several extras from other builds, so it was not an issue for me. 5 eggs for good value at time of purchase and no issues, thus far.

5 out of 5 eggsBest SSD for the price

This review is from: Crucial M500 120GB SATA 2.5" 7mm (with 9.5mm adapter) Internal Solid State Drive CT120M500SSD1

Pros: Best 120gb SSD on the market in the sub $100 price range. Speeds seem to be as advertised, and so far has been reliable. Not a single hiccup yet.

Cons: Not the best looking drive, or packaging for that matter, but the performance and reliability more than make up for that.....

5 out of 5 eggsFriggin Awesome!

This review is from: Crucial M500 120GB SATA 2.5" 7mm (with 9.5mm adapter) Internal Solid State Drive CT120M500SSD1

Pros: I'm so frackin' happy with this!

Cons: There is an updated firmware version for this that you'll want to apply.

Other Thoughts: This was so super easy to use with Win7 clean install.
After updating the firmware I put in the OS cd and let her roll.
Note: The way I updated the firmware was download the updated firmware iso from crucial and burn it to a cd, then reboot to allow booting from the cd.

3 out of 5 eggsWhats the big deal

This review is from: Crucial M500 120GB SATA 2.5" 7mm (with 9.5mm adapter) Internal Solid State Drive CT120M500SSD1

Pros: OS installed fast
Benchmarks are fast

Cons: Functions at the same speed as my mechanical drive

Other Thoughts: I've tried it in a few different rigs with all the optimizations I could do and it runs at the same speed if not slower than my mechancail drive(a WD black). the only real positive is that my OS installed fast, and its in a laptop(though the laptop doesn't move much)

All and all unless mines defective or there's a problem else where I don't get the hype for SSDs.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome!

This review is from: Crucial M500 120GB SATA 2.5" 7mm (with 9.5mm adapter) Internal Solid State Drive CT120M500SSD1

Pros: Very fast response times and solid

Cons: none -- Great Product!

Other Thoughts: Don't forget to buy an adapter if you are installing this in a desktop case. Newegg should really add a bundle option for this.
