1 out of 5 eggsUnreliable hard drive

Pros: Fast drive - as it should be.

Cons: Unreliable

Other Thoughts: I have had this drive fail not once, but twice. Crucial's power cycle procedure failed to fix it the first time, but it just started working again a month or so after it failed the first time. I decided to give it a try again and it completely failed six or so months later.

A hard drive should be reliable before it's fast. I would never recommend buying this drive.

2 out of 5 eggsFast but not reliable

Pros: It's incredibly fast.

Cons: It failed after about 10 months. I can still mount the drive as a slave but a considerable amount of files can no longer be read from the disk.

If you're going to use this drive make sure you backup your work frequently.

Other Thoughts: Do any SSD's stand the test of time?

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Drive

Pros: This drive works well and is fast. Doing a search on 1.5 million records PINNED the my 3770k processor on all 4 cores. The drive was NEVER the bottleneck in getting things done.

Cons: None. Very fair priced and no failures. No whistle like some other drives.

Other Thoughts: I wish I had the cash to buy more. I could use 2 more of these things.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat drive

Pros: This drive promises fast I/O and it delivers - write speeds are "OK" for an SSD - still blazingly fast and this drive shines where it counts - which is peak I/O performance.

Cons: It's a laptop drive - so if you want to use it in a desktop you need a tray to put it in. It's only 256 GB

Other Thoughts: If you are using this as an OS drive in a desktop and you don't use hibernation - you can save a ton of space by turning hybernation off (windows related - do a google search for the commands).

I would move the page file if you have another drive - to save room as well - at the price per gig SSD's still cost - it's just not worth it to keep junk on the drive you don't need

1 out of 5 eggsPoor Customer Service

Pros: It could be fast based on other reviews, but I haven't been able to find out.

Cons: Bad customer service.

Other Thoughts: After trying multiple times to clone the hard drive, contacting customer support and then following their advice I was unable to switch to the new hard drive because it wont transfer the OS properly. I am running Windows 8 and was skeptical because I wasn't certain that the cloning software would work. After being assured by representatives at Crucial that the cloning would work fine, I decided to order the hard drive. I tried cloning softwares that included the one given with the device EZGIG IV and downloads of other softwares such as HDClone. Crucial replied to my complaints about the cloning softwares that I had been using by telling me I was doing it wrong. That is it. No help to clone or anything, they simply said try more of the softwares again. Thanks Crucial. None of them worked and I was then told I would have to make a factory image of Windows 8 and just have a fresh start by people at both Staples and Best Buy who said they didn't know of working cloning softwares. I hope to add in more pros after I complete this process with the new SSD installed, but I will likely not up my review from 1 egg due to all of the headaches this hard drive and Crucial caused. I would suggest buying a different SSD for a similar price.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: Transfer software and device worked great, couldn't be easier, took about 3 hours to transfer. went to youtube to find out how to actually replace the drive in my HP laptop. Very easy if you take your time. My core i5 laptop runs very fast now, boots into full working windows in about 45 seconds.

Cons: I wish it was half this much money

Other Thoughts: get it, it's good.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing!

Pros: -Large drive for a decent price
-Working cloning kit
-Easy to install
-Incredibly fast

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: This solid state drive is incredibly fast once set up, and the cloning software and cable included work perfectly. It only took me 45 minutes to clone my entire hard drive to the new drive. The speed in comparison to a mechanical drive is ridiculous...I went from an average start up time of 75 seconds, to 17 seconds from the time I press power to the time I'm logged in. I'll never another mechanical drive again other than for backup and storage. I lucked out and got this while it was down to $180 as opposed to $250 the next morning, but this is money I would've invested either way. Definitely a great buy, no regrets.
