5 out of 5 eggsNeeds Windows 7 SP1 +

This review is from: Crucial M550 CT512M550SSD1 2.5" 512GB SATA 6Gbps MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Fast, reliable, spacious, and reasonably priced.

Cons: If trying to install Windows 7 onto this drive I get an error that says something about setup cannot install Windows on this hardware configuration. When using Windows 7 with service pack 1 slip streamed into the installation it works fine. So it would seem WIndows 7 flat uses the incorrect hard drive driver for my computer (Dell Precision Workstation M6400). As a test Windows 8.1 Pro installs on this drive. Unfortunately there are no other 8.1 device drivers for my model laptop such as the one that controls power management.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic SSD

This review is from: Crucial M550 CT512M550SSD1 2.5" 512GB SATA 6Gbps MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: With OS installed on drive I ran benchmark tests, while only making minor tweaks to OS (TRIM, no defrag, so on so forth) ran around 500 read and 500 write.. very consistent. Have it installed in an ASUS gaming i7 laptop and have not had a single issue yet. have not noticed a "Huge" difference in battery life, but I can say it is at least a little better than before. With the lifespan of SSD's now I decided to put all applications (lightroom, photoshop, steam, office, so on so forth) all on the ssd, and all of them have seen significant improvements in launch and processing times.

My OS now boots after the ASUS MOBO splash screen in 6 seconds on windows 8.1, keep in mind this is not a fresh install. (used Acronis paid version to clone and re-partition)

Cons: Seems the price has increased since I bought it.
Can't think of any other cons.

Other Thoughts: Definitely a good SSD, would buy again.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Fast

This review is from: Crucial M550 CT512M550SSD1 2.5" 512GB SATA 6Gbps MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Great speed I can now fire up iphoto and it does not take 30 seconds to a minute to load my library. I have been using a poor performing Hitachi drive that has always tested fine but been iffy since day one. I wish I had upgraded sooner. I also wish I had never went with Hitachi on last drive update. If you are on the fence I think you would like this drive.

Cons: Not really any cons I think of as price is very good for an SSD but it would be nice to see the price of SSD's go down so they become the new standard.

Other Thoughts: I used SuperDuper! to move everything over so it was painless.

5 out of 5 eggshow amazing speed

This review is from: Crucial M550 CT512M550SSD1 2.5" 512GB SATA 6Gbps MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: The price was ok for what you get. I owned a 120gig intel 320 in 2011 and that was ok for the time. Now I got this ssd and it's night and day between the two drives. The m550 installed Windows 7 in 12 minutes from a thumb drive and installed all 140 updates from a thumb drive in 20 minutes including restarts.

Cons: price is still a little high per gig.

5 out of 5 eggsFAST & RELIABLE

This review is from: Crucial M550 CT512M550SSD1 2.5" 512GB SATA 6Gbps MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: SPEED
Reliability
Plug & Play
Good Reputation

Cons: None Really.

I would like to have some SSD software like Samsung offers

Other Thoughts: After lots of research I decided to go with the M550 and I am very happy with my decision. So far everything has met or exceeded my expectations. The M550 might not be the "fastest" SSD out, but I would call it one of the fastest with a good reputation for being reliable. The price has gone down some and I feel that it is in the "best bang for the buck" category.
