5 out of 5 eggsGreat upgrade

This review is from: Crucial M550 CT1024M550SSD1 2.5" 1TB SATA 6Gb/s MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: _Large capacity, with SSD speed.
_Stability.
_Light.
_No noise or moving parts.
_My programs will function instantly now.
_Agree with another reviewer here, it is a lot better to do this than blow a lot more money on another laptop. My laptop is 4 years old and this makes it act like a new toy.

Cons: Meh, all worked for me.

Would be neat if Micron could make a widget that can report to you the space available, temp, etc.

Other Thoughts: It is unfortunate to read that there were a number of unstable units delivered to others, but I never experienced any issues. I purchased the Crucial/Micron disk cloner (EZ Gig software with SATA-to-USB cable) and that has worked perfectly on 10+ clones for laptop and desktop HDD to SDD. Was just simple plug-n-plays.

5 out of 5 eggsfor the money go for it

This review is from: Crucial M550 CT1024M550SSD1 2.5" 1TB SATA 6Gb/s MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: I had a ocz vertex 4 in my desktop for a year and was tired of moving files into other drives and waiting for installs over and over, but this fixed that problem.

1 TB of ssd storage is very nice indeed. holds all my games and music when a 256 failed

Cons: ITS SLOWER THAN THE OLDER DRIVE!

sorry for the caps lock but this was really disappointing! I knew the 4k's were less but still went for it because of the $400 price tag and 1000GB storage, a win for my want scenario. still it brought about a 5% performance drop to my ssd performance out of a newer drive. while this may be an incredible deal, if you want more speed than this (entry level speed) ssd you will need to open up the pocket book.

Other Thoughts: for the $ it cannot be bargained with, just like the 8350.
while its slower than the i5 in single threaded tasks it is just as fast as a 4770K in gaming and at the end of the day that's what im doing here, so save the $150+ if you know what I mean...

1 out of 5 eggsCan't clone or restore a partition to it

This review is from: Crucial M550 CT1024M550SSD1 2.5" 1TB SATA 6Gb/s MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Not sure, since it doesn't work.

Cons: No software works so far to clone to it - error after error. I also tried a backup and then a restore to the SSD, it still errors out. Using EaseUS and Macrium Reflect. HD Tune says C7 Interface CRC Error Count, though no other drive in my system is having an error or trouble. Also gives warnings on C4 Reallocated Event Count. The company does seem to have proprietary software to do the same thing though I have no reason to believe it would be any more successful - plus they charge a very pretty penny for it.

Other Thoughts: It's not at all frustrating to spend this much money and then invest this much troubleshooting time just so that I can RMA.

Pros: Easy to install and setup. Easy to transfer boot info to new drive with the Crucial Software (purchased from crucial).

Other Thoughts: Great drive, good capacity, easy to set up.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat SSD for the price

This review is from: Crucial M550 CT1024M550SSD1 2.5" 1TB SATA 6Gb/s MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Very fast boot up and load times, no noise, and extra battery life (mine is installed in a Toshiba laptop). Manufacturer advertises power outage protection, encryption support, and a 3 year warranty.

Cons: Price, as a spinning platter hard disk of the same capacity can be had for about $75. However if you value speed, the higher price for a SSD is worth it. No cloning software provided, other manufacturers do provide it.

Other Thoughts: Got it on sale on Newegg for $390, which is about $0.38 per GB. Price per GB is very reasonable for a SSD. It is very fast, Windows 8.1 loads in seconds. Worth every penny and not a single hiccup in the Toshiba laptop I installed it in. May not be the fastest per professional reviews, but I doubt the average user will notice.

1 out of 5 eggsTerrible

This review is from: Crucial M550 CT1024M550SSD1 2.5" 1TB SATA 6Gb/s MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: good value

Cons: Had purchased Samsung 840 before but wanted 1TB for MBP. Good value so I bought it. First it wouldn't format at all. Then it finally formatted taking 3 hours. Tried to transfer data and got read / write errors immediately. Another try at formatting. It wouldn't working with Disk Utility, Drive Genius etc finally formatted. Tried transferring data, took 4 hours for 1 GB. Again Read/ Write error codes
Did RMA with Newegg and returned. In all my purchases with Newegg my first return. I have 36 TB of hard drives and 2 SSD drives. I don't think my error at all

Other Thoughts: Always had great luck with Crucial memory is why I bought this. They have great memory. Surprised that I got a piece of junk from Cruicial. Not worth trying again. I am going to buy a Samsung 840

1 out of 5 eggsfailed hard drive

This review is from: Crucial M550 CT1024M550SSD1 2.5" 1TB SATA 6Gb/s MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: The product failed before I could evaluate its pros.

Cons: Caused major crash that caused my Lenovo notebook to use recovery - made a real mess. But computer repair service was unable to identify the problem and thought it was the computer. Bought a new computer, waited 1 1/2 weeks for installation and copying files. Crashed again in new computer two days in a row. Took it back to shop, thinking it might not have been connected securely. Diagnostics took another 2 weeks. The hard drive is overheating to 70C, crashes, and I must wait several minutes before it will reboot. With shipping time, installation time, 4 days of use, and testing to find the problem it is now past its 30-day return window.

Other Thoughts: Return time should allow for installation time and diagnostic time that is not under control of the buyer.

5 out of 5 eggsMy first SSD

This review is from: Crucial M550 CT1024M550SSD1 2.5" 1TB SATA 6Gb/s MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: - Boot time is very fast and opening applications is almost instantaneous.
- 1 Tb capacity is amazing, no worries about installing all my apps and games on this drive.
- Power required and heat generated are lower than with my previous traditional drive ... this results in a quieter system because the fans don't have to work as hard as before.

Cons: - None that I have noted yet.

Other Thoughts: I installed Windows 7 on this drive and boot time is very fast.

Make sure to optimize your system settings for SSD's (ie: TRIM, Defrag, Indexing, ect).

SSD Optimization Guides are widely available on the web ... Google is your friend.

Delivery was timely and package arrived in perfect condition.
