5 out of 5 eggsWhat was expected

Pros: Using this with an z87x mobo and linux Mint 17. Linux benchmark (Disk) shows 540 mb write @.05 access time. Can't do write becnmark on disk with data on it or I will forfiet data.

Cons: price
Crucial does not support linux, so firmware updates will have to be done with windbloes.

Other Thoughts: Love the speed, hate the price, otherwise works with no problems.
Crucial does not support linux, so firmware updates will have to be done with windbloes.
This will affect my decision as to what brand ssd I will buy next.

5 out of 5 eggsThe best of the pack.

Pros: A great drive, have just at home 6 running , from the first made
and newer. DT and laptops.
Hints:
do not use most brands of free software for cloning OS.
even better is Farstone drive clone, (smartest of all, and i tried them all)

Do understand the rules for GPT if using that.
Do a fresh install. for best experience !

if not doing a fresh install (sure I too have 100s of apps)
Farstone wins.

Cons: none.
not one issue ever on all SSD I own or have installed.
but my PCs are virus clean, not overheating, as many are.
seen so many laptops over heat it makes me sick. (clean it )!
The GPT issues, really fool lots of folks.
If boot protect is on , the PC will not even see any added drive.
read up on how to solve that, its discussed on win 8 forums.

Other Thoughts: some PCs have bad bios that can not see the SSD, like Asus M2n early version. This is their problem....
Get your new drive recognized by BIOS first.
then use the MS install disk to format it as you see fit (gpt, or
if all this seems hard, go to the geeks, at you know where, and let them do it.

the maker of the drive has no idea what your are plugging it into.
so buy a cable and bracket, or if smart, get the Farstone (free)
they sell more expensive SSD with bundled stuff, but why?
buy it yourself and pick better products.
eg: on my DT I run top brand, SATA=III low noise, and locking cables.
you can even pick the color.

enjoy,

4 out of 5 eggsIt is good

Pros: It is easy to install and use in my laptop. It improves the speed of my laptop. However, it still does not reach higher speed as sumsung pro or other famous series

Cons: it could meet the normal use in common life, but not professional

4 out of 5 eggsCrippled by external enclosure

Pros: Works just fine.

Cons: we assume that this SSD would perform as advertised if only we could find a USB 3.0 2.5" external enclosure that had a true SATA III controller chipset that can handle more than 300 MB/s, which our Orico with it's AMS 2105 cannot.

Other Thoughts: as far as we can tell, this SSD works as advertised, and it is a significant improvement over 2.0, but when paired with most external enclosures, be aware that performance is crippled.

1 out of 5 eggsCrucial are the ONLY SSD that have ever went bad on me.

Pros: When they work, they are just as good as any other SSD.

Cons: Two years ago I bought 2 crucial SSD, a 128gb and a 240gb. Both went bad almost exactly 1 year after the purchase. They were warrantied with replacements from the M5 series, this SSD. Within 2 weeks, one of them has already failed. I'm scared to do anything with the other given the reputation.

5 out of 5 eggsAstounding and well-priced!

Pros: Simple to install, blazing fast, Crucial quality. Additionally, hardware encryption for Bitlocker on Win8. If your desktop or laptop has a security solution, this SDD will make it Fort Knox.

Cons: No drive cloning software in the box. If you're like me, you may not need it and instead use the M500's wicked speed to just freshly install windows and then image it for safe keeping.

Other Thoughts: I bought a 240GB M500 on sale to pair with a Lenovo Thinkpad Edge e545 which has a quality, but awful slow 5400 RPM WD HDD. After swapping drives, my e545 can achieve 7 hours-plus of standby time and a functional use time of nearly four hours, nearly double what it was with the spinning drive. This small investment not only makes my laptop faster, it also extends the life of a very expensive battery.

If you see this ON SALE and you need a SSD for a laptop, boot drive or security storage solution, BUY IT NOW!!! You won't be disappointed.
