5 out of 5 eggsAffordable and Reliable

Pros: I've owned and used this SSD for a little over a year and I love it. My desktop computer starts and runs much faster. I will definitely not go back to using a disk drive to store/run my operating system. This particular SSD was the most affordable and wallet-friendly option at the time of purchase. I've never had a problem with it and would buy again for future computer builds.

- very affordable price
- reliable, never had a problem

Cons: None observed.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome SSD, Crucial M500 480GB

Pros: I've had this SSD for about 2 years and only had one problem. The genius I am, I was cloning during a storm (Melbourne, FL--Lightning capital of northern hemisphere) and a strike fried several items (TV,cable box). My SSD got corrupted from the power fluctuations (UPS didn't help). After I wiped it clean and did a fresh reload of windows, it works great.

Cons: Don't try to clone an SSD in a lightning storm!!

Other Thoughts: It takes about 20 seconds from the time I hit the ON button to the time I'm on the internet.

2 out of 5 eggsDrive disappears

Pros: Drive is low profile and fast when working

Cons: Drives works under light load, but fails under high loads in Windows 10.
Can't get a hold of support from Crucial.

Other Thoughts: I can't believe such an expensive drive has no support. What good is a drive that does not run or a company that does not stand behind their products.

2 out of 5 eggsStarting to fail

Pros: Worked great for about 12 months.

Cons: Purchased this on 2/2014, and now windows is having a hard time loading. I have to POPO multiple times and go through the system recovery before windows will finally come up. Going to look for a better, more reliable SSD now.

1 out of 5 eggsdissapointed in this Crucial SSD

Pros: worked fast in a desktop computer for a few months

Cons: LASTED LESS THAN 1 YEAR
did not get the speeds listed
never got it to function fully in a laptop
clearly got a lemon so how do I get my money back after this long ?

Other Thoughts: as a long time buyer of Crucial memory in multiple systems over the last 20 years.
I am very disappointed that this has turned into an expensive paperweight in less than 1 year and I was never able to get the speed that should have been possible from an SSD.
where is the quality control ?
I still have an older system using crucial memory that has been working for over 10 years but this SSD started having problems within 6-8 months and is unusable now.

5 out of 5 eggsNo problems; speed is very good

Pros: Speed, reliability

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I use my system for gaming and penetration testing training. I run the game Rift on my system and loading is very fast when teleporting.

I have run antivirus or malware system scans and it is excellent: very fast.

I never received error messages or had slowdown or problems.

I got this on sale awhile back.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks quite fast in MacBook Pro

Pros: Easily replaced the 5400 RPM 500 GB HDD in my MBP and have never looked back. Boots in less than 10-15 sec. and is very snappy. 8 GB DRAM adds to it's improvement. Check out the 'net to add SSD optimization if you want as well. I think Yosemite may now do this but not sure. I'm still using Mavericks for now.

Cons: No cons at all since the conversion over 6 mo. ago.

Other Thoughts: The M500 series replaced the original M100 series. It has since been replaced by the M550 but the M500 still remains a great value for my requirements.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome drive

Pros: I upgraded my old Dell Latitude D630 that I use for work that I've had for almost 8 years with this SSD and it's like a brand new computer now. Boot times are super fast. Installation couldn't have been any easier. I would definitely buy one of these for another laptop.

Cons: Support for disk mirroring was lacking. I was able to hack my way through it using a USB - SATA cable and Macrium (free).
