4 out of 5 eggsGreat

This review is from: Crucial M500 CT240M500SSD1 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Fast, cheap, seems to be pretty reliable.

Cons: No cloning software but you can just download some for free if you don't want to do a fresh install.

Not as high of read/write speeds as samsungs**

Other Thoughts: Don't get to caught up with all the read/write speeds, most of those are obtained using synthetic benchmarks and are not indicative of real world performance.

I boot to desktop and can open applications in under 15 seconds from the time the bios appears and thats with SATA 2 ports. I have the Marvell SATA 3 ports but they are junk and offer little to no performace gain just use the Intel ports.

5 out of 5 eggs  wow

This review is from: Crucial M500 CT240M500SSD1 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: My first ssd was a little worried about cloning my OS since it was on a dynamic drive but cloned no problem not one program glitch afterwards. Ssd is by far the best way to speed up your computer.

Cons: Of course size but size = more money
Next will be a few more prob step up to 500g though

This review is from: Crucial M500 CT240M500SSD1 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Replaced an older Sata II drive and this Sata III drive is amazing.

Cons: Does not come with a 3.5" bracket. Had to order one separate in order to install in standard desktop.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic SSD!!

This review is from: Crucial M500 CT240M500SSD1 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Very Quick. Low heat. Fast access times. Crucial reliability. Very reasonable cost.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Bottom line: No, it's not as fast as those ones from the manufacturer beginning with an "S". So what? You're really not going to notice, because all SSD's are fast compared to HDD's!!! These things are quick enough, and I trust they will last, because Crucial is known for rock-solid reliability. I base this on an M4 that I still have running over 2 years later.

4 out of 5 eggsDoes its job

This review is from: Crucial M500 CT240M500SSD1 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: You can't beat the price per gb for ssd. It also is significantly faster than an hdd. It took my windows index rating for disk drive from a 5.9 to a 6.9.

Cons: It maybe isn't the fastest ssd out there but its also not the most expensive

5 out of 5 eggsnot bad for a games drive.

This review is from: Crucial M500 CT240M500SSD1 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: I purchased this with a wd black to replace a raid i had that was on its way out. after the ungodly long amount of time it took to transfer 2.5 tb of data to my new drives i noticed that this drive helped the micro stutter i was noticing with my old raid drives. games play a lot smoother now and even though this isnt being used as an OS drive everything feels a lot snappier now that its in AHCI mode as opposed to raid (i blame that on the 2 dead drives)

Cons: none whatsoever. i cant even find anything to be picky about

Other Thoughts: the packaging was decent, it goes along with my 60gb crucial M4 OS drive and all is well with my system. couldn't be happier for $179. this was a great purchase.

4 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: Crucial M500 CT240M500SSD1 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Good Price, good quality, good reputation. Its a SSD so theres not too much else to say. remember to do your homework, i forgot about tossing this in a PC first and formatting it and all that jazz. Sucked to remember all that after wiring up and setting my whole case up. Popped it into another windows PC and formatted and all that, i was good to go 20 minutes later. Its stupid fast compared to my old Raptor. Average boot time is around 17 seconds from cold off to waiting on me at a desktop.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: 4670K I-5
ASRock Z97 Pro4
16 Gb Gskill Ram
R7 265 Radeon
240 Gb Crucial SSD

1 out of 5 eggs1 of 3 has died, impossible to get RMA

This review is from: Crucial M500 CT240M500SSD1 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Fast

Cons: Of three units I have ordered in the past year, one died after about six months of daily use. I have been trying repeatedly through the Crucial website to get an RMA, with absolutely no response.

I understand units occasionally fail, but now I have low confidence with using these as primary drives, and given the RMA experience will never buy another Crucial product.
