5 out of 5 eggsLove it!

This review is from: Crucial MX100 CT256MX100SSD1 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Greased lightening! Boot and initial program loading is oh so much faster. I use an imaging program for my backups and was able to pour the image onto the drive precisely as a restore to a standard disk.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsGreat SSD

This review is from: Crucial MX100 CT256MX100SSD1 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Easy install. I used Acronis True Image to clone my Windows 7 from an older SSD onto this one. It went smooth. I was up and running with no problems. The drive has been solid so far.

Cons: It didn't come with a 2.5->3.5 drive adapter.

Other Thoughts: The drive temp is around 80 F after all day use.

5 out of 5 eggsFast - Reliable booit drive

This review is from: Crucial MX100 CT256MX100SSD1 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: I was able to clone my existing Windows 7 system using Acronis True Image software I already had onto this new drive with no problems. Windows booted and came up right away. It has been solid performer for me so far.

Cons: It didn't come with it's own bracket to be able to mount it in a 3.5 bay on my tower. I had to purchase that separately

Other Thoughts: My existing Windows 7 system is around 50 GBs in size. I plan to install all of my software onto the Crucial drive thus freeing up my other drives for data. This has enough size to handle my software. as well as Windows. It runs at about 80 F on my system after a full day (8 Hrs) of use. I may look at integrating it into Windows Bitlocker with a future release of Windows.

2 out of 5 eggsDisk Check Errors

This review is from: Crucial MX100 CT256MX100SSD1 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Fast after it goes through disk check

Cons: Long boot time because of errors

Other Thoughts: Turn on the computer and it has to do a disk check and fix errors. Says fixed but does this every time a turn on computer.

5 out of 5 eggsFAST!!

This review is from: Crucial MX100 CT256MX100SSD1 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Easy install and Unbelievable speed increase on boot and shutdown as well as in-program access to and from the ssd. I didn't use the image software included in the box and opted instead for a fresh copy of Windows 7 and reload of my chosen games...and am Really impressed with the speed of this thing. It went from a 3 min boot to a 30 second boot with this ssd...WOW!

Cons: None to speak of so far.

5 out of 5 eggsCruicial & clone boot drive

This review is from: Crucial MX100 CT256MX100SSD1 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Fast! Seems solid (time will tell). The EZ-FIT Lite SSD bracket works well, except it takes screws vice the quick-fit connections to hold it in the rack.

Cons: Had to try various cloning programs to get it to "take." Using Backupper the system originally booted but then on reboot got a MBR not found error. Started over with Acronis True Image HD and it worked fine after procedure below. May have been user-error, but trying different software seemed like a good bet.

Other Thoughts: HHD boot drive was on a partition, so had to find software that would clone a partition, not just an entire disk. Saved disk image using several software packages. Clonezilla couldn't find saved image (perhaps because it was a Windows 7 GMA drive). Backupper worked by didn't restore image to entire drive (only to same size partition which was 180GB) so didn't utilize full drive capacity. Acronis True Image HD worked (despite language which suggests it only clones entire disk) and utilized full drive capacity including the 100MB system reserved area.

Make sure to prep the original HHD drive first using info from several online sites and Youtube videos. Make sure TRIM is enabled, defrag original HDD then turn off defraging for the boot drive, move any moveable user directories to another drive (include GoogleDrive and DropBox), etc. Then clone the system image by booting from a DVD with the SDD connected through USB and the original HDD unplugged. Acronis True Image HD took about 25 minutes to restore the entire system (Win7) from the saved image; boot drive and reserved area is about 72 GB in size and the image was about 50GB in size.

1 out of 5 eggsJunk

This review is from: Crucial MX100 CT256MX100SSD1 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: None

Cons: Had two of these, both had lock up issues . Called Crucial, they confirmed both drives were defective. 2nd drive less than 30 days old, Newegg wants to give me a replacement, not a refund! If they want to lose the thousands I spend with them, give me a replacement!!!!! These drives are junk!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat basic SSD

This review is from: Crucial MX100 CT256MX100SSD1 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Boots faster than my previous drive - a Samsung 840. I believe the 840's had firmware issues...not sure if they fixed those problems.

The Crucial MX100 has worked flawlessly from day one. Very happy with it.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Power consumption might be a little higher than other SSD's. You might want to check out some reviews before you choose one for your laptop.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat way to speed up your system! Disk I/O makes a HUGE difference.

This review is from: Crucial MX100 CT256MX100SSD1 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Advertised speeds were realized on my rig; Dell Inspiron 3000 11" 2in1 (3148). Went in easily installed Fedora 21 perfectly.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Great replacement for a old style disk. Disk I/O is the most "felt" speed ot lack thereof on a system in my opinion. If disk access is slow, the system can crawl. On the other hand, even an old system will seem to "fly" with an SSD.
