1 out of 5 eggsWORTHLESS!! DO NOT BUY!!!!

This review is from: Crucial M500 CT120M500SSD3 120GB Mini-SATA (mSATA) MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: It is an mSata and an SSD and it was Cheap. That is it.

Cons: I have own allot of drive in my day, and I wanted to try the mSata drive and this was my first and I will say I was impressed for about a week. However, the speed is really no different than any low end SSD. But the drive plunked out after about 40 days. JUST long enough to go past the return policy, fun huh! The drive just quit, no warning no nothing. I have had generic SSD's last longer than this SSD. Do not think Cr***** gives a blip either, New egg FYI I am a very very loyal customer and I have NEVER had any issues with any other products but this was the worst situation I have ever had and your extremely short RMA policy on this is just wretched. The amount of time it died and after seeing other customers with similar time frame deaths of this SSD it almost seems like its a set up...but I know its not ..but still!. I am very very unhappy and no CR***** do not want a replacement, even though that's what they do..I want my money back!! I have had lousy Sea****'s (which are pretty much the worst drives you can get) live longer than this. I am very disappointed in Cru****..I thought they had better standards than Sea****! ...WORST SSD YOU CAN BUY!!!

Other Thoughts: I WILL NEVER BUY CRUCIAL PRODUCTS AGAIN!

4 out of 5 eggsWorks with Drobo

This review is from: Crucial M500 CT120M500SSD3 120GB Mini-SATA (mSATA) MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Well priced and works in my Drobo 5N.

Cons: No cons as far as I have seen.

Other Thoughts: Not sure of speed increase because I did not test it prior to installing it. Running 6+ months and no errors.

1 out of 5 eggsA good way to ruin your day

This review is from: Crucial M500 CT120M500SSD3 120GB Mini-SATA (mSATA) MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: It's an ssd which means it's fast. Fast was good. Decent price.

Cons: After spotty functionality after 2 months it upped and died without so much as a whimper. No warning, just enough time for me to put all of my stuff on it and think I was fine, then gone. Would not recommend this drive or brand to anyone.

Other Thoughts: Now I have to see what I can do about either replacing it or getting a refund... Just my luck :(

5 out of 5 eggsWhy pay more?

This review is from: Crucial M500 CT120M500SSD3 120GB Mini-SATA (mSATA) MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Cheaper than most other 120GB mSATA drives but yet you get Crucial quality. Why pay more?

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Using this in a laptop that has a mSATA slot. It is my boot drive. It's fast, it's been reliable so far (2+ months). Very happy.

1 out of 5 eggsBad sectors

This review is from: Crucial M500 CT120M500SSD3 120GB Mini-SATA (mSATA) MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: fast

Cons: after approximately 100 days, now reporting 65k bad sectors

Other Thoughts: Would be nice to have a reliable product. Guess i'm out of luck after paying over $130 for this. But hey, i almost got $1/day worth of use out of it. Maybe i should pay more and i'll get longer life.

Pros: Very fast and reliable

Cons: Didnt buy it sooner.

3 out of 5 eggsFailed unit

This review is from: Crucial M500 CT120M500SSD3 120GB Mini-SATA (mSATA) MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Gotta love SSD speed. Shocked my friends how small it is.

Cons: Failed in exactly 29 days from receipt (30-day return policy). Not as fast as others.

Other Thoughts: I have been the IT guy for over 20 years. Added this to Intel NUC as a home theater PC. It failed literally within a few weeks. Speeds were good, as you'd expect from an SSD, but I've had hundreds of drives in my hands within that time, with no failures except this one. Thank goodness I didn't have any irreplaceable data on it yet. At my rates, this failure just cost me more than not just the drive, and NewEgg's making me pay for shipping, but way more than the whole computer cost, because of its failure. Everything has to be re-done. I do have a system image, but it's almost as old as the installation. Thanks Crucial.. Thanks NewEgg. I like the drive mostly. It's significantly slower than my Vertex 4 and Vector SSDs in this machine, but the NUC boots up within half a minute to fully-loaded. That's what I want to replace all my set-top-boxes n' junk. I'll replace it and go, but be warned -- there could be failure. Precautionary measures are recommended.

5 out of 5 eggsEasy Install

This review is from: Crucial M500 CT120M500SSD3 120GB Mini-SATA (mSATA) MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: - Super fast
- IT CAME WITH THE MOUNTING SCREWS!
- Doesn't Take up an SATA slot

Cons: - None yet

Other Thoughts: I bought a new desktop and wanted to install an SSD drive. The desktop had an mSATA slot, so I unplugged the harddrive, plugged the M500 in the mSATA slot, put in the Windows 7 install disk, turned the computer on, went into the BIOS and had it boot to the SSD drive first, then the CD/DVD, then let it boot off the CD. It installed Windows 7 on the SSD and away I went.

Under the Windows Performance tool, the primary hard disk's (my SSD) disk data transfer rate came up with a rating of 7.9 (the highest rating in the scale).

I am very pleased.
