This review is from: Crucial M550 CT256M550SSD3 mSATA 256GB SATA 6Gb/s MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Pros: Originally bought this as a replacement for an existing mSATA drive that was thought to be failing in a client notebook. It turns out it wasn't, leaving me with the choice of either returning it or using it myself. I chose the latter. We installed this in a Dell Precision Workstation T1700 desktop PC, using an Addonics 4-port RAID mSATA to PCIe x4 adapter. It's set up as our primary boot drive running Windows 8.1.
Cons: As with any SSD product, you will pay a higher price-per-Gig when comparing them to conventional hard drives. This is only really a "con" when comparing to cheap mechanical drives.
Other Thoughts: Moving to SSD, and particularly a PCIe-mounted mSATA such as the Crucial M550 may be the best "bank for the buck" performance dollar you can spend.
