5 out of 5 eggsGood but hot

This review is from: Crucial M500 CT240M500SSD3 MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: - Good read/write speed, especially coming from an HDD
- Much cheaper than other current mSATA SSDs

Cons: - Runs pretty hot

Other Thoughts: If you don't have a lot of money to shell out on an mSATA, i'd recommend this one. It may not be as fast as others that are currently available, but it comes at a fraction of the cost and it's from a reliable brand.

4 out of 5 eggshappy with my purchase

This review is from: Crucial M500 CT240M500SSD3 MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Works as advertised. There was a bit of trouble installing with Windows 8 UEFI installed on the other hard drive. More the computer than the drive but it was frustrating. Speed tests were nearly exactly what was advertised. Got what I paid for and since its "old" it was easy on the wallet.

Cons: It does get hot. It does not have a temperature sensor but it gets hot. The average response time is not that great when compared with other SSD drives

Other Thoughts: Its still pretty freakin great. I have a Vertex 4 (which is crazy fast) and the samsung 840EVO which is quick but mostly because of the 12 gigs of Ram the RAPID mode uses as cache. This drive is a nice quick speed. Boots windows 8.1 in like 5 seconds. No SSD is going to really make you wait. This is no exception. If your looking for price its great. If you are looking for speed there are faster, but you will literally need to benchmark to see the difference. Once you go SSD, There is no past, only your new life not waiting for your computer to do things. Hurry up and buy because the price will go down one day and youll feel bad sooner that its not worth as much as you paid 30 days ago.... enjoy technology. :)

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome drive!!!

This review is from: Crucial M500 CT240M500SSD3 MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: The speed is incredible!!!

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Don't be afraid to purchase this drive. I bought it as an image drive in my laptop. The main drive is the Samsung 840 Evo SSD. Once I had all my programs and games installed I cloned the drive onto the Crucial drive. It took less than 10 minutes to clone using Acronis. Then I go into the device manager and disable the drive so as not to accidentally corrupt the OS or delete something critical. Now if things get hairy I just clone the image back to the Samsung and I am brand new again.

5 out of 5 eggsWhat's to complain about?

This review is from: Crucial M500 CT240M500SSD3 MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Great read/write speeds. Very easy on the wallet. No complaints here. Using this as a storage drive, have another SSD as the original installed with OS.

It doesn't require mounting in the HDD bays either.

Cons: None that I can think of.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat SSD

This review is from: Crucial M500 CT240M500SSD3 MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Has no problem reaching Crucial-provided transfer speeds, so take those as relatively accurate.
This SSD has remained reliable since I've purchased it.
It's not the fastest SSD out there, but I was willing to give up SandForce-type speeds for an SSD with reliable controller.

Cons: I have no cons to share.

Other Thoughts: I swear by the two main memory manufacturers for SSDs: Samsung and Crucial.

Installed in an Acer M5-581TG.

2 out of 5 eggsDisappointing SSD

This review is from: Crucial M500 CT240M500SSD3 MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Reasonable price on sale for 112. Bought to replace 500 gig 7200 rpm Seagate SATA II hard drive.

Cons: My old 7200 rpm SATA Seagate boots into Windows 7 faster, and most programs open faster with old drive. Was disappointer based on some Sandisk and OCZ 60/120 dives that really booked for lowly XP laptops

5 out of 5 eggsNice and fast!

This review is from: Crucial M500 CT240M500SSD3 MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: mSATA, nice speed and just plugged in and worked with a new Intel NUC. M500 series is now "old", so pick these up at a real discount over the newer M550 series. Very attractive price.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: At the time of this review, these are substantially discounted as "old".

5 out of 5 eggsFast drive runs a little warm

This review is from: Crucial M500 CT240M500SSD3 MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Quick, came with current firmware loaded.

Cons: ran hot during my benchmark test almost hit 70C open air, from what I read the drive will begin to throttle down at temp.

1 out of 5 eggsTrouble From The Start

This review is from: Crucial M500 CT240M500SSD3 MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: mSATA saves space and reduces cable clutter

Cons: Used as OS drive, failed to be recognized when waking from sleep from day one, even with proper "Never sleep" power settings applied and the latest firmware "MU03," finally failed after 58 days.

Other Thoughts: I don't know if I just got a bad one, or if the cheap price indicates some deeper quality issue. If Crucial makes good on their replacement warranty, I will probably sell the new replacement and switch to something different.
