5 out of 5 eggsGreat SSD

This review is from: Crucial M500 240GB SATA mSATA Internal Solid State Drive CT240M500SSD3

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 240GB SATA mSATA Internal Solid State Drive CT240M500SSD3

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 240GB SATA mSATA Internal Solid State Drive CT240M500SSD3

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 240GB SATA mSATA Internal Solid State Drive CT240M500SSD3

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 240GB SATA mSATA Internal Solid State Drive CT240M500SSD3

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.

5 out of 5 eggsHOT ITEM

This review is from: Crucial M500 240GB SATA mSATA Internal Solid State Drive CT240M500SSD3

Pros: 240GB at a Low Price
240GB in a small package
Snaps right into my Gigabyte Z77X-UD5H wifi motherboard
Fast, error free, boots in seconds

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Wasn't rated 5 stars, so thought I might be taking a chance here. No problem, works great.
Acronis has trouble placing an image on it due to MFT table. Had to create and restore a windows image of my smaller m-sata drive to add this larger drive (card) which worked fast for me. Didn't lose any data after imaging.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat drive

This review is from: Crucial M500 240GB SATA mSATA Internal Solid State Drive CT240M500SSD3

Pros: Found a motherboard that actually has an mSATA spot in the middle. Put this in there powered it all up, added software and now have a very fast, cool and energy efficient system.

Cons: If you're not paying attention you might not recognize that this is an mSATA and not an eSATA drive. There are cheap adapters available however so not a huge issue.

5 out of 5 eggsExtremely Fast

This review is from: Crucial M500 240GB SATA mSATA Internal Solid State Drive CT240M500SSD3

Pros: So far, all I can say is good things. This actually seems to load faster than my Samsung 830 2.5" SSD, although benchmarks are comparable between the two. Both are operating at 6 Gbps, so I'm pretty impressed. Time will tell, but for the great price of $0.50 per gigabyte, I'll take it!

Cons: None so far. Time will tell :)
