5 out of 5 eggsFatal1ty x99m Killer

This review is from: Crucial M550 CT512M550SSD4 M.2 Type 2280 512GB SATA 6Gb/s MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: This drive is extremely fast and allows me to use the only 2 3.5" bays in my case for storage drives. 0.5TB is the ideal size I was looking for to have a snappy boot drive for fast media center/internet loading. I know people are saying that you should use the pcie interface drives just because you have the ability, but the price difference can't be justified.

Cons: none!

Other Thoughts: Crucial's website states for this drive, "this part is not compatible" with your motherboard (ASRock Fatal1ty x99m Killer). I didn't realize this until after my purchase, but I assume it means that the part has not been tested for compatibility/reliability? I haven't run into a problem yet regardless, and this is after many reboots and sleep/wake cycles.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat drive!

This review is from: Crucial M550 CT512M550SSD4 M.2 Type 2280 512GB SATA 6Gb/s MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: This is a very fast high capacity drive, and it worked perfectly for me right away.
Small form factor is great. No need to take up one of your limited 2.5" HD slots in your notebook if you have this. I can put 4 of these into a space smaller than a single 2.5" drive. This allows me to use a less expensive spindle drive for data storage.

Cons: None to speak of. The higher price is to be expected for a new technology such as this.

Other Thoughts: I have only had this drive for a short period of time, however I have had no issues so far. If this changes I will update the review, but I expect that the drive will be fine. Crucial is a good brand, and my past experience has shown that they stand by their products.

5 out of 5 eggsCrazy Fast

This review is from: Crucial M550 CT512M550SSD4 M.2 Type 2280 512GB SATA 6Gb/s MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: -Fast install
-No reason for installing Driver's
-Ultra Low power needs
-0.5 Tb of drive storage make it a great drive
-Speed of read and Write more than stated

Cons: -Expensive
-M.2 only connection.

Other Thoughts: My New X99 board has the on board m.2 connection and bio recognized them perfectly and first time. This is a great speed for a large capacity drive.

3 out of 5 eggsWindows 7 problems but fast

This review is from: Crucial M550 CT512M550SSD4 M.2 Type 2280 512GB SATA 6Gb/s MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Really fast in a Gigabyte Z97MX gaming 5 board when it works. New windows7 installation.

Cons: Mostly will not boot because bios can't see it. Particular after sleep. Switching the power supply off and on will help eventually. But annoying. Anyway no support from Gigabyte or Crucial to speak off. Of course Microsoft does't care either.

1 out of 5 eggsUnstable

This review is from: Crucial M550 CT512M550SSD4 M.2 Type 2280 512GB SATA 6Gb/s MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Huge amount of storage space (~480 GB usable)

Cons: I received a defective drive. (see below)

Other Thoughts: I installed this inside inside my Lenovo X1 Carbon Gen2, and initially it ran great. However, it would periodically become unresponsive and Windows 8.1 would crash to a BIOS error saying that the drive was undetectable. After 2 weeks I decided to return it to Newegg, even though otherwise the drive was great and I would have really enjoyed the storage.

1 out of 5 eggsTwo defective drives!

This review is from: Crucial M550 CT512M550SSD4 M.2 Type 2280 512GB SATA 6Gb/s MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: The drive boots up fairly fast, and offered performance comparable with my 2.5" form factor Samsung Evo 840

Cons: Well... the first drive I got was defective after the first night... I loaded windows on it and installed a few applications... then the next morning I turned on my computer and it wasn't recognized. I reseated the drive and it booted up exactly once before not being able to be read at all.

The second (replacement) drive arrived and I installed Windows and several of my programs... 3 days later it no longer works. I shut the computer down and when I went to turn it on it just won't read anymore.

Other Thoughts: I would wait until this technology is more mature before buying... it wasn't actually any faster than a 2.5" form factor, even though it costs a bit more.
