5 out of 5 eggsGreat bang for the buck.

Pros: This is a great Budget SSD. Fast read and write speeds, very reliable, and easy to install. I had no need to optimize this SSD because it works great right out of the box. I didn't need to use any optimization utilities for this SSD to perform as advertised.

Cons: NONE.

5 out of 5 eggsQuality SSD on the cheap

Pros: - Great price

Cons: - None

Other Thoughts: Bought this to replace the HDD in my father's laptop. Works as expected with zero issues. I figured if Crucial is good with their RAM, surely their SSDs would follow the same path. So far, that has proven to be the case.

2 out of 5 eggsOk, but may not be full compatible in some systems!!

Pros: I brought two of these during Black Friday for my new AMD build. I got it for a great price. However, I was forced to alter my plan....see cons for more info!!

Cons: I spent days trying to get Win7 ultimate 64 under Gigabyte/AMD FX8350 (GA-990FXA-UD3) mb to recognize it in RAID-0. It would only run under AHCI. I tried practically every suggestion from the net and nothing worked. Crucial customer service was useless because it doesn't offer support for RAID. I even tried mixing it with Raid-0, seagate 2g x 2 in RAID-0 mode (OS on the SSD and Raid-0, non-boot for storage). Win7 would find & load the Raid drivers but would come back with this error "no drives found". I finally gave up after weeks of unsuccessfully trying to make it work in raid mode. I finally pulled out my old SanDisk from my Intel (ASUs P6T mobo). Win7 recognizes it and configured it automatically. My new build is using the SanDisk SSD combined with Seagate HDD's in Raid-0, This was not the plan, but it is working for me because I was able to get it to work in my old intel I-7/ Asus (P6T) system. This is weird because Win7 will not recognize it in RAID mode under my new GIgabyte mobo/ AMD FX8350 system, but it works great with my old Intel/Asus system in raid-0. It could be a driver or firmware issue. It has the latest firmware. I don't have to return it since everything worked out, not as i planned it, though.

Other Thoughts: Great value when it is on special...very fast and stable but may not be fully compatible with some systems.

2 out of 5 eggs50% success

Pros: Purchased during BF sales.

Cons: Slow consumer SSD but decent controller.

Bought two for (2) HP DV4 laptops. Laptop #1 accepted SSD (imaged from original HDD) and has ran fine for 2 weeks. Laptop #2 refused to boot properly and HP's firmware-level diagnostic tools reported HD failure. Attempted image twice. Finally imaged a SanDisk Ultra II SSD and runs great.

SanDisk Ultra II is currently $10 more and WELL worth the extra $$. Bench-marked both M500 and Ultra II with CrystalDisk. Ultra II faster overall and 4k read/writes are MUCH faster, higher IOPS. SanDisk toolbox/dashboard software is much better too.

Other Thoughts: Returned to Newegg within 30 days and Shoprunner eligible. :)

1 out of 5 eggs:(

Pros: Fast

Cons: Worked for 2 hours

Other Thoughts: At first this SSD was amazing, but it only lasted about 2 hours. none of my pc's will recognize. tried everything but i guess i just got a bad one :( tempted to get diff brand, but will give this one one more try. never used this brand b4, so we'll see what happens. If anything ill just go back to intel and corsair, never had problems with their ssd's.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat SSD for the price

Pros: This SSD is very fast and reliable, even without a firmware upgrade out of the box. Easy installation, and the instructions are fantastic when compared to other SSDs. Comes with the mounting screws, and is the proper height for most laptops without the need to add a filler plate.

Cons: Like most SSDs, this one does not come with any mounting brackets for a desktop system. The software, although not needed, is somewhat cumbersome.

Other Thoughts: Like most SSDs, this is a great product to add to your older computers, especially laptops, running Windows Vista or higher. (It works with other operating systems as well.) This particular drive was very nice to install since I didn't even need to update the firmware on the drive like I have had to with other drives. Well worth every penny - Don't throw away that old, slow laptop without considering an SSD.
