5 out of 5 eggsexcellent performance/price

This review is from: Crucial MX100 CT128MX100SSD1 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: SSDs are a snap to use.

Cons: You should avoid running disk cleaner type utilities. I am told (but do not know) that it can shorten the life of the SSD. Research it for yourself.

Other Thoughts: All my builds use SSDs now - except for TB video storage.

5 out of 5 eggsSSD's can now be standard!

This review is from: Crucial MX100 CT128MX100SSD1 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Price. This is the first 16nm SSD. AnandTech does a good review stating that the process that makes these NAND chips different is same thing Intel did (high-K/3D NANDa). Anyways these are great for the consumer. Drives that are affordable and perform well. You can get a 256gb (240GB actually) for around $100 soon. This means average consumers can afford great boot times, faster system response, quick level loading for games, just about everything is improved and you finally have a decent amount of room for a decent price!

It's not as fast as my samsung evo. I think that felt a little faster in the system but I think my games take about twice as long to load. 2-3 seconds on Skyrim doors and almost 15! seconds for battlefield. Which is actually quite good, just not the best. So above average speed. Maybe the fact that I got the smaller drive hindered this but my EVO was a chunk faster - but everything is still definitely fast. It's fun now, not a trial of patience - to use Windows. Everything is buttery smooth. Tabs in Chrome open so fast. Textures pop-in sooner. Microstutter is heavily reduced (amazing!1) and best of all the few games I keep on there run so, so much sooner.

Cons: None, if you understand that SSD's are always a compromise somewhere. Usually your wallet won't cooperate or the size isn't enough (oh so common the problem) but sometimes speed is the issue. A superfast, 1TB SSD for $200. That will be the REAL day!

The real only con here is the size. I have loaded Windows 8.1, semi stripped (small trashbin, no restore points, no page file etc) and I can only fit Battlefield 4 with all expansions (this is huge), Skyrim with mods (also huge) and Civilization 5 with all expansions. I wish I could at least fit Diablo 3, I think I can actually. I wish I had another $40 so I could of gotten the 256. I think I'll just upgrade to a 1TB when the price drops.

Other Thoughts: Bottom line : a great drive for everyone. Fast (but not the fastest. Decent amount of space : 128, 256, 512. And the prices. The prices! As of Aug '14 : $75, 115 and 215. Finally, decent prices.

Speed, size and price. The beginning of the end for HDD dominance. O, you will have your place, my 4TB friends, but many, o many of your brethren shall see their numbers dwindle. I'm really happy Crucial is the manufacturer to do this, I was looking at Samsung to lead the way - the competition will be good for consumers.

Benchmark results using AS SSD Benchmark :
sequential read/write : 318 MB/s read, 177 MB/s write
4k read/write : 21 MB's, 58 MB's
4k-64thd (?) : 27 MB's, 50 MB's
Acc time : 0.165ms read 0.083 write

3 out of 5 eggsOf course I have Issues

This review is from: Crucial MX100 CT128MX100SSD1 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: It works

Cons: So I get it installed and boot my pc up, I have the 128gb version, and I open up my computer and it says my E drive has only 99gb total and its only got 61gb free space left. Ok I assumed some space would be allocated so I figured I would get 115-120 gb free space but 99?? and what in the world is taking up 40 gigs? Its empty when I open it and it doesn't look like windows is using it for anything. Of course this product gets almost prefect reviews every site I check and I end up with issues. So I have a 128gb SSD that really is saying I only have 60gb of free space out of the box.

Other Thoughts: Hopefully I can figure something out or I will have to send it back and try again.

5 out of 5 eggsLove this SSD

This review is from: Crucial MX100 CT128MX100SSD1 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: I went from a 3.0G SATA2 500GB to this hard drive for my Operating System hard drive and my boot time to Login Screen is down to 14 seconds. After logging in opening Chrome or IE is open in the blink of an eye. I'm running Windows 8.1 Enterprise Edition and everything is super fast.

Did standard shipping and got it 42 hours after ordering. I love newegg shipping. It is always like this for me. Sometimes I get it the morning after ordering.

Cons: Wasn't delivered next day, buy hey, 42 hours aint bad either.

5 out of 5 eggsFast and Awesome

This review is from: Crucial MX100 CT128MX100SSD1 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Fast, fast, fast....! Will be getting another one with more space

Cons: none thus far.

Other Thoughts: though maybe I shouldn't have but I did format it when installing windows 7 ultimate. haven't seen a problem. next bigger one, I won't, so done with Hard Disks after experiencing the power of the SSD

5 out of 5 eggsSmoking

This review is from: Crucial MX100 CT128MX100SSD1 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Affordable, Great price to storage size ratio.
Easy to install
Fast shipping
Real fast performance

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Installed this in my MacBook Pro.
Replaced the 5400 rpm drive.
There is just no comparison, I don't think I'll ever own a Mac without installing one of these.
I mean, I can boot and open massive drag apps like: Final cut Pro, InDesign and many others lightening fast.

Read another review where the buyer said it didn't work with Mac.
HorseManure!
Works great, and very easy to install.

This review is from: Crucial MX100 CT128MX100SSD1 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Fast transfer speeds, especially for the price.

Cons: Little slow on write speeds, but for the price i won't complain

Other Thoughts: Bought this to replace a HDD on a family laptop that gets moved around a lot. Didn't want to worry about mechanical problems from the movement so got this. Great price/GB. Good sppeds.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome SSD

This review is from: Crucial MX100 CT128MX100SSD1 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Through this in a refurbished laptop I bought, and that thing is blazing fast now! came with acronis software license which is really useful if you want to migrate a current installation to this drive without doing a clean install of windows (Though I suggest doing a clean install). Came with some sort of mounting bracket as well.

Cons: The drive doesn't come with a SATA cable, usually your mobo comes with that anyway though. not a problem in a laptop either.

Other Thoughts: 2fast2quick

4 out of 5 eggsFirst SSD, and I am now a Believer :)

This review is from: Crucial MX100 CT128MX100SSD1 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: 1. LIGHTING FAST, my regular 5400rpm HDD took about 2 minutes to load to desktop with desktop gadgets fully loaded. With the SSD it only takes ME 45 seconds to boot to desktop with gadgets fully loaded. Also increases load times as well.

Cons: 1. No SATA cable included, you have to buy an aftermarket cord for data migration/cloning.

Other Thoughts: This is my very first SSD. I have two computers, a full desktop gaming PC, and an HP G6 Laptop. I decided to upgrade the HDD of my laptop to prolong the lifespan and use of my laptop and is now being used for school since I now use my gaming PC as my main PC. Basically, my laptop is truly serving it's purpose as an on-the-go PC with unbelievable performance of the Crucial MX100 128gb SSD. It's only been day 1 as of 6/12/14, but this SSD works like a champ!! Great buy!
