5 out of 5 eggsFAst , Stable, 24/7

Pros: Speeds are as rated, iv had this drive in my pc running 24/7 for about a year now, and theres been no problems i have it filled up to 20 gb free.. It is very fast and i recommend getting the latest drivers also becuase they help out alot And also make sure you have the latest firmware.
I have NEVER had a BSOD from running this..

Cons: Expensive but worth it for the quality

Other Thoughts: buy 1 and laugh at other cheap brand whoes got nottun but problems.

1 out of 5 eggsWhat could have been.

Pros: Back before FW:0007 they were solid drives. Dependable and fast.

Cons: Ever since the 0007 update, they have developed a horrible sleeping bug. Most people use this drive as a primary drive, so it crashes on them. I use an always dependable Intel SSD as my primary (never had a sleep crash) so I got to see my computer wake up, but Intel RST would tell me drives had been removed. Well sure enough, every time it was my 2 C300's that vanished. Sometimes one, sometimes both at once. Rebooting the computer wouldn't bring them back. You need to do a shutdown and boot back up, the drives come back, no data lost. Sometimes, if my computer was inactive but not in sleep for a while, it would drop the drives without entering sleep mode.
Since sleep mode is vital in modern laptops/desktops, I would not recommend this drive. Sure maybe on paper they are faster than the Intel X25M g2's and 320's i've begun to replace them with, but at least they can handle sleep mode without crashing on me.

Other Thoughts: Don't bother going to the crucial forums for support, your best bet is to avoid 0007 like the plague. The only thing that will happen on the crucial forum is that you and your hardware will be blamed, their mods will act as if you're the first to ever bring up this mysterious problem. Their support forum is laughable, you're only accepted there if you go there to praise them.

I wish Newegg carried more 1.8" drives from Intel (higher capacity) as I want to replace the C300's in my Vaio Z

5 out of 5 eggsSo far so good

Pros: Works great with Windows Pro 64 bit start up in 32 seconds from Asus splash screen to a ready cursor. That's with a delay from my having to swipe my fingerprint for biometric access. WEI primary drive score was 7.9 with a a base score of 7.5. Updating firmware is trouble free if you follow the Crucial page's directions. I hooked up to the SATA II (not III) port on the MB in my old build. I did NOT use an external case/eSATA.

Cons: I hope all the firmware updates have cleaned out the bugz. This drive was buggy with the inital firmwares but subsequent testing (Anandtech) indicates it's a good drive as long as the firmware is updated ad TRIM is enabled. There is some griping about long term garbage collection/sequential writes etc but Anand admits it's unlikely to be a problem. It came with 0006 and I had no problems with updating to 0007. Firmware updates are a pain but they are a fact of life with SSDs.

Other Thoughts: It was on sale for $1.48/Gb elsewhere. Sorry Newegg but 90% of the rest of my build came from you. Newegg had similar pricing on OCZ but the reliability worried me. Sandforce is faster but there's no track record. Discounting the C300 is likely since this model was updated by the very, very similar C400/M4 (see Anandtech review) My take is that it's the same thing for less.
My build:
ASUS P8Z68-V MB
Intel i5-2500K
Crucial C-300 128 Gb SSD
MSI 460 Dual Frozr Hawk GC
Antec HCG-750 PS
Antec 900 II v3 case
WD Caviar Black 750 SATA 6 Gb/sec
G Skill Sniper 8 Gb 1600 RAM

5 out of 5 eggsStable and fast

Pros: I started off with a revo drive for my first ssd....I couldn't believe the improvement, but....system stability was horrible. Was reimaging my disk at least once a week. So Newegg being the great company they are allowed me to exchange after the 30 days, and this is what I got. Rock solid system, not a single problem once I figured out not to use the marvel sata 3 connecters. So I put this on a LSI megaraid card, and I couldn't be happier. System boots in less then 30 seconds and most of that is the LSI card and the 7 other drives...

Cons: Price?.. Personally I never considered that a con

5 out of 5 eggsNot one problem...

Pros: Works fine with Windows 7 -64bit.
Fast....

Cons: No sata 3 wire when I brought my box. (now included)
Pricey...

Other Thoughts: I thought it was not going to be enough GB's when I got it, but so far I'm good.

5 out of 5 eggsSuper Service

Pros: No vibrations so no vibration damping required, cooling not required, silent, smaller than the platter type desktop internal drives. 3 year limited warranty

Cons: Delicate circuitry so is not indestructible. Should be imbedded in the CPU like Intel graphics (next year).

Other Thoughts: I had one fail to be recognised by my pc and could not reset it so rma'd it. It took just two phone calls to get an rma # and a ups label. Handed it to a ups driver and had the refurbished unit back in about a week and no charge. I do not have an extended warranty. I did not have to produce a receipt or proof of anything.

5 out of 5 eggsMind Boggling Fast

Pros: Wow! Amazingly fast. Reduced boot time from 1 1/2 minutes plus to 30 seconds (Windows 7, AMD Phenom 1075). Does exactly what it's supposed to do -- make your computer run even faster than The Doctor (well, if you're British or watch PBS, you'll get the joke). And I'm still running it on SATA2.

Seriously, though, this is one smokin' drive and so far, knock on silicon, very reliable. I've built or seriously upgraded about 70 computers and I think that an SSD like this is the single most cost-effective way to really speed up a computer.

Cons: To quote a great American: "You gets what you pays for." So stop complaining about the price folks.

Other Thoughts: Salespeople might try to pull a fast one on you and tell you that you cannot clone an SSD to a conventional hard drive or vice versa. Not true. I clone this SSD to a back-up hard drive without any problems. I suspect the salesfolk just want to sell you two SSDs instead of one.

1 out of 5 eggsNot ready for mass market

Pros: Speed
Crucial Customer service telephone techs.. These guys are on the spot and no time to wait.. A total contrast to ASUS

Cons: - Ssilly installation procedure on the ASUS G-73
- BSODs
- Stability is huge reason for me going back to ordinary 2.5 sata' drives.

Other Thoughts: I sent back the first SSD to Newegg and I RMA'd because it would not accept WIN 7 64 bit

I put in my replacement drive and finally it works!! But now it's just an unstable Mable and likes to go to blue screen from time to time. I checked the Memory which was fine and bios is right. there are no driver conflicts which gives me suspect to this drive. I just got tired of it giving me CTD problems so I pulled and replaced it with my slow 7200 speed seagate and the problems disappeared

I really believe these SSD's are basically a novelty right now and all across the internet you'll see tons of issues by ALL manufactures. Things will get ironed out in time, but not now . It's an expensive way to waste time and effort with this things at their current state of technology.

I't looks like this is going back to New Egg if they will allow 2 back to back RMA's?

4 out of 5 eggsFirmware upgrade comming

Pros: This comment is about Crucial support and firmware upgrades for this drive. I am using the drive externally through USB 2.0 (and it seems fine) but I wanted it for my system drive but will not switch it in until I can do a latest firmware upgrade. Then I will review the drive. The Crucial support statement is below in Other Thoughts.

Cons: Crucial does not make clear on the firmware upgrade pages (which just dead out to 404 screens) that they have withdrawn version 006 and are working on a new one. Their notice appears somewhat buried under "Discussions" on the product page. One star off for this.

Other Thoughts: This posted April 1, 2011, on the Crucial site: "We’ve been monitoring the Crucial customer forums and are aware of the 0006 firmware issue being experienced by a small percentage of C300 owners. The Crucial Performance Lab is in the final stages of testing for a new firmware revision that addresses and corrects the version 0006 issue. Additionally, we’ve made an improvement to the firmware upgrade process so it will be able to be performed in AHCI mode for many chipsets. We expect this firmware update to be available in late April 2011 and will make the download available to customers at the earliest possible date. Thank you for your feedback and patience."
