5 out of 5 eggsMX100 512GB - Fully Recommend

Pros: Running great, with speeds as advertised. Does not run too hot unlike some other SSDs on the market. Have had it about half a year now on my primary desktop that gets a lot of daily use. Game maps load faster and it has greatly improved my start up time.

Cons: None so far.

5 out of 5 eggsWow

Pros: Absolutely everything about it is a pro. Compared to even a 10k RPM HDD, it's more energy efficient, it's quieter, it's WAY faster, it prolongs my battery life, etc etc etc... I couldn't be any happier with my upgrade. My laptop starts up in seconds, even with a handful of memory intensive programs starting when Windows does, and on Win7 at that. I believe I clocked it at 14 seconds if I remember right. Now that I have Win 10, it's unstoppable as a main drive. It reduces strain while playing big games and using large programs when running from the SSD. And unlike other models, this drive doesn't have any firmware that you need to mess with.

Cons: Nothing that I can personally think of.

Other Thoughts: It's a big step up when compared to a conventional HDD. I can't go as far to say it's better than other SSDs, as this is the only one I've personally owned, so I have nothing to compare it to.

5 out of 5 eggsThe sweet spot

Pros: This drive hits the sweet spot for performance, size and reliability. Been using it for over 6 months, and I've had no problems and seems just as zippy as the day I installed it. Plus at 500 GBs I can have all my programs installed on it without worry.

Cons: none

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing

Pros: I have had this SSD for just over 6 months now and I don't think i'll ever buy anything but Crucial SSDs ever again. The write time of this SSD is nuts. I could not be happier. If you are debating if you should get this SSD or not; Buy it. You will not be disappointed.

Cons: I have nothing negative to say about this SSD at all.

5 out of 5 eggsExceptional SSD for Good Value

Pros: High transfer rate. I purchased this item while on sale a year ago. $200 was a great deal for 512 GB

Cons: Must use separate brackets to mount inside disk drive chassis

Other Thoughts: ery impressed with this SSD.I didn't understand the major bottleneck which occurs with HDD. This SSD alone decreased my total boot time from approximately 45 seconds down to 11 seconds (from POSTing to executing programs). Transferring multiple gigabytes between two SSDs is phenomenal. I use a Samsung EVO as well as the Crucial

1 out of 5 eggsNon-refundable, non-maintainable

Pros: Price
Claimed Features

Cons: This product has old firmware and cannot be upgraded by the software or the methods Crucial provides on their web site. Thus, I cannot recommend it, nor any other of their products that require either software or firmware for their ordinary uses.

I have been a Crucial customer for over 20 years. But no more.

Newegg should mark the non-refundable nature of this product more clearly. Several hundred dollars gone -- *poof*! Why return it to a manufacturer who cannot even support a new product?

Other Thoughts: Apparently this has been a known problem with this family of drives for some time now, and still is. Read the web before buying products!

1 out of 5 eggsFailed failed failed

Pros: Purchased this a while back but never really had the chance to use it. Now I finally got the Windows installed everything was fine but then when it was time to update the disk would freeze up over and over and over. without anything running and just the updates to MS office disk utilization was at 100% and nothing was responding. This is not what I expected so I am sticking with Samsung after this. Also in an attempt to process an RMA their site would not allow so what gives.....arrrrrr so frustrating.

Cons: It does not last, sticking with Samsung

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent once installed

Pros: It's fast and low-power.

Cons: It was hard to clone my old drive and get this working on my AMD ASUS laptop. The included Acronis True Image 2014 software caused trouble, and I finally got it to work Cruicial's suggestion to remove SATA/IDE drivers and reboot worked badly.

Other Thoughts: Installed Acronis True Image 2014.
Went into View Local Services, into which Acronis installed three services.
I set Acronis Nonstop Backup Service to "Disabled" (double click the service).
I set Acronis Scheduler2 Service to Manual and started it.
I set Acronis Sync Agent Service to Disabled.

I MADE A RESTORE POINT (!!!)

I started Acronis, and got the cloning process ready to go.

I Went back to View Local Services, and stopped the Acronis Scheduler2 Service.

I Did the clone and proceeded to put the new SSD in the system in place of the old drive.
When the new, SSD, system came up, I did these things:
-Made another restore point. NOTE WELL: System Restore needed to be turned on for the new disk drive.
- Uninstalled Acronis True Image 2014
- Got back to work with my wizzy new SSD
