5 out of 5 eggsInstalled into a Nokia Booklet 3G

Pros: It's a 1.8" drive with Micro SATA connections. Fits perfectly into my Nokia Netbook. VERY fast sleep/wake. I can open Microsoft Office 2010 in about 3 seconds on a Z530 Atom Processor.

The speed of the computer has significantly risen; There is no need to use ReadyBoost to help speed up the computer. (Windows won't even let you; declares that it wouldn't even help so Bill says 'don't even bother.')

Cons: Most people don't realize that SSDs use up more power than standard spinals. From my normal 10 hours of battery life, I'm now seeing about 6-7 hours of battery life.

When I initially installed the drive, and after Windows had finished installing everything & I finished the drivers, it kept locking up. It was at random times as well, almost once every 30 seconds or so. However, after installing a free tool that optimizes SSDs, and it has been performing stellar ever since.

I also attempted to update the firmware via Crucials website. You have to burn the firmware update from an .iso onto a CD, boot from the CD, and then install from there. However, the firmware update got stuck. It could not find the hard drive to update. Couldn't seen to figure out how to update it, so I just downloaded some SSD optimization software. That seemed to work with the sluggishness.

Other Thoughts: I also had to disable TRIM support on the Booklet, because it does not support it. Be sure to check your motherboard support before; or you can just simply disable TRIM support under regedit if your not sure.

Otherwise, it's a great SSD that doesn't break the bank. Pick up a Pogoplug for an infinite amount of storage space for this SSD, and a Mobile Broadband Card to access your files from anywhere.

For the very few out there with another Nokia Booklet 3G, I must say this is a must-buy. However, be ready to devote a whole day to reinstall your entire computer.

4 out of 5 eggsBefore comparing withg RAID0...

Pros: Looks very efficient for the price, but read my "other thoughts" in regards to comparing with RAID0 efiiciency.

Cons: Removed one egg because I haven't bought it yet : I'm browsing for building my own HTPC, however I felt that I had to add my 2 cents regarding benchmarks in RAID0 (read "other thoughts")...

Other Thoughts: Thanks to Papaman for his benchmarking input. However, he should've said what was the file size. There are two factors to take into consideration:

1- File size : it looks that the benchmark was done with 4 Kb files if I'me reading correctly... RAID0 does NOT improve speed with small files (if not for a very residual gain). A good analysis should mention the file size, and test for different sizes. The fact is that stripe mode (raid0) can really improve speed and even cut read/write time in half for big files, as two disks are being accessed in near-parallel, each disk hosting about half of the same file. Whith small files this is barely noticeable.

2- Technology : RAID0 can show its real power especially with standard mechanical drives, since it's the mechanical part that really slows down disk I/O. SSD don't use the same technology. Hence, it's possible that you won't really see some gain (in average) when putting 2 SSD drives in RAID0, unless you are working with big to huge fi

5 out of 5 eggsGreat speeds...

Pros: Ran benchmarks with a single C300 against dual OCZ 40gb in RAID 0...

Each measured in mb/s...

OCZ R/W C300 R?W
Seq 280/80 350/71
4K 20/66 28/51
4k-64 202/85 201/62
Acc Time .22/.26 .13/.72
Score 250/159 264/120
Total 534 515

Not bad as a single drive whereas the OCZ are the newer Ver 2 drives with the new controllers.

Having 2 C300's in a raid should be blistering!

Cons: none...

4 out of 5 eggsafter some tweaking...

Pros: Did some digging and found the drive was setup in IDE mode instead of AHCI. I'm now getting read speeds around 310. still docking an egg for the description not saying it requires micro sata

Cons: micro sata, no installation guide to troubleshoot the poor speed problem

3 out of 5 eggsCan't get good speed

Pros: Faster than my old HD

Cons: How are you guys getting close to the 355mb/s speed? Like others, I purchased not realizing this is the micro sata interface so I had to buy an adapter from a local retailer. Hooked this up using adapter to my 6gb/s MSI 870A-G5 motherboard running windows 7 64.. best read speeds I can muster are from 180-220mb/s. Not bad but certainly not what I paid for, nor what others claim to be achieving.

Other Thoughts: I've tried to find a 6gb/s compliant cable/converter/card from micro to standard sata but no luck. And the wife threw away the box already so I can't return it! Any help would be appreciated.

5 out of 5 eggsMicro Center Vs. C300 Direct Comparision

Pros: Fast So far - See Other thoughts

For my first PC build in 20+ years (last was an 80486 :) I got everything from NewEgg except a hard drive. To build it this weekend I was forced to go to a local chain store to get a respected $99 /64G house brand SATA 2 SSD.

After assembling the new rig (I7-950:) I did a fresh Win 7 / 64 install then patched / tweaked everything to SSD standards. Life was good

After doing some more reading and really wanting a SATA 3 drive I decided to try the C300 today.

Before I swapped the SSD's I did some benchmarking (results below) and yes it blows away the HOT Sanforce controller in the house brand drive in all but the critical 4k tests.

So far So good. SATA 3 rocks. NewEgg Rocks.

Cons: I may have misread another users comment and thought drive clone and cables were included with the C300/64 GB but i think i was wrong and those only come with the 256 SSD.

I used the free Snapshot Disk Imaging software to clone the drive with little issues.

Other Thoughts: Micro Center SSD 64 Gig (Sanforce Controller)
Sequential Read : 197.602 MB/s
Sequential Write : 63.930 MB/s
Random Read 512KB : 183.869 MB/s
Random Write 512KB : 63.343 MB/s
Random Read 4KB (QD=1) : 16.178 MB/s [ 3949.6 IOPS]
Random Write 4KB (QD=1) : 61.709 MB/s [ 15065.7 IOPS]
Random Read 4KB (QD=32) : 113.449 MB/s [ 27697.5 IOPS]
Random Write 4KB (QD=32) : 60.994 MB/s [ 14891.2 IOPS]

Test : 1000 MB [C: 27.0% (15.1/55.8 GB)] (x5)

Crucial C300 / 64 Gig
Sequential Read : 349.060 MB/s
Sequential Write : 75.237 MB/s

5 out of 5 eggsBlazing Fast

Pros: I purchased this from NewEgg. It's Fast, it really is! If you want the best upgrade for your computer, upgrade your HD. Packaged in a quality casing, looks rigid and well-made. Installing it was a breeze. It loads my Win 7 64bit to desktop with no processes loading in less then 6-7 seconds (with changes made to way computer boots of course). Everything opens instantly, I can only imagine how nice it would be to run 2 or 4 of these, but i think you lose TRIM capabilities with that (not sure). Oh and almost forgot: Windows 7 perfomance Index for HD (which was my bottleneck at 5.9 on a WD SataIII caviar black 1TB, went up to 7.0 (MAX)) so now my bottleneck is my Video at 6.9 =P

Cons: Installation is a bit of a task, because i can assure you your case will not fit this natively. I personally took one of the sliding plastic HD bays and drilled some holes in it to match the ones on the SSD.. "professional install =)". 64 gb is minuscule and you always have to keep that in mind; bogging it down with lots of useless apps will make it decrease in performance over time. This requires more maintenance then your regular drive, but if your set on getting a dramatic performance increase, you'll have to deal with all the settings, trial and error and once its setup the way it should be, you'll be happy.

Other Thoughts: Overall, I can't say that i feel good spending all that cash for 64 gigs. But when you can justify your expenses, or you crave performance, its worth it. Will the price drop next year by 50% ? absolutely. Would you be reading this if you wanted to wait until next year? Get it, you'll be happy, I game once in a while, never has anyone beaten my loading times, or even converting a avi. to dvd takes 5-6 mins max compared to 8-20 mins on a regular sata III 7200.

1 out of 5 eggsLive Fast, play hard, Die Young

Pros: Was 3x faster (write) and about 9x faster (read) than the hdd it was suppose to replace. useful for a book mark in a long novel.

Cons: Died after 2 hours, tech support friendly but suggested a bunch of freeware tools to go play with. Not useful at all. No useful documentation, post install notes, test or diagnostic tools.

Ssd's are not quite ready for primetime, maybe in 6 months...

Other Thoughts: Machines see drive but the drive in locked in read only mode, no tools I tried will allow me to write, reformat repartition the drive.

5 out of 5 eggsMicro adapter

Pros: Super fast. Benchmark on Ubuntu read speed of 354MB/s read. Seriously!
Crucial: brand you can trust

Cons: Micro Adapter required (newegg sells one make sure you buy it as it is hard to find at local retailers)
Only 64GB
Should be in the description somewhere: newegg's fault not crucial thus 5 eggs!

Other Thoughts: My system:
Gigabyte MOBO: GA-890GPA-UD3H
AMD 955 BE
Kingston Ram 2 * 4GB
WD Black 1 TB (Sata III)
ATI 5670
Windoze 7 score 7.0 (runs as fast as Ubuntu does on my WD 1TB
