5 out of 5 eggsSpeed Ruined my Life

This review is from: Crucial MX100 CT512MX100SSD1 2.5" 512GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: The speed at which my Windows 7 Home Premium Edition loads is nothing to laugh at. Previously my 750 GB Seagate HDD started going down hill and would take 5 to 15 minutes to completely load up. Now my boot speed is so fast that it takes about 1 minute for the computer to boot up. The SSD is performing superbly and I have caused my son to be jealous about how quickly my 'older' computer boots up and runs.

Cons: The only Con I have is not related to the drive. I was hoping to perform a 'cloning' of my seagate, but Crucial asks for an additional $50 for their kit and software. I spent three weeks attempting to clone the Seagate drive and had no luck with all of the 'free' programs which should have cloned the drive. I finally broke down and spent $50 to have a local tech company perform the cloning.

5 out of 5 eggsUnbelievable

This review is from: Crucial MX100 CT512MX100SSD1 2.5" 512GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Just got this drive today. ordered one for myself after putting one in a customers computer. I have a very powerful HP Z420 computer. I run a large amount of processes in startup because I need them. My boot time was exactly 3 minutes with the original WD drive. This drive dropped that boot time to fully loaded and functional to 35 seconds. Programs are speeded up also. QuickBooks 2014 Pro now opens to functional in 6 seconds

Cons: None yet! Hope it is durable

Other Thoughts: Will use many of these

4 out of 5 eggsWorks OK

This review is from: Crucial MX100 CT512MX100SSD1 2.5" 512GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Small, light,Sata 3.0

Cons: Not as fast as expected

Other Thoughts: Using it to host Hyper-V virtual machines (5) on a dual Xeon 5620 server with 48Gb of RAM. Seems to be especially slow on booting the machines if all are started at once

5 out of 5 eggsBought a second MX100

This review is from: Crucial MX100 CT512MX100SSD1 2.5" 512GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Fast. 7mm and 9mm support. Low power consumption. Unbeatable value in $/GB

Cons: Acronis TrueImage software (or lack thereof)

Other Thoughts: I was so happy with my first 512GB MX100 that I bought another for my son's HP Pavilion 13 x360 2-in-1. I replaced the OEM HGST 1TB 5400RPM drive with the MX100 and now the system is a pleasure to use. Boot time decreased to 15 seconds and apps open instantaneously.

Unfortunately, I had problems with the Acronis software again. Last time, I couldn't get my activation code because their server was down. This time, the software wouldn't download. The partial code included with this drive says it's for Acronis 2014, but when I tried to access it through my account on Acronis, the website says that software is no longer supported! I tried to create a new account and use the link and code included with the SSD, but the download never starts. I guess Acronis has removed the 2014 OEM version from their servers. I wouldn't have bothered with the Acronis software at all except that the free software I ended up using last time wouldn't clone disks with more than 3 partitions. I was still able to find free software that worked on cnet.

5 out of 5 eggsDoes what its suppose to.

This review is from: Crucial MX100 CT512MX100SSD1 2.5" 512GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Fast Drive...Good Size Storage...Reasonable Price!
Newegg took care of me when the first one i ordered never showed up.

Cons: Should have gotten two!

Other Thoughts: Had a issue with shipping when i ordered my first one. Newegg told me they lost it in the warehouse and placed it on a claim. Wouldnt have been a big deal if i wasnt away for work the whole week and would have noticed it had gotten lost sooner. So 10 days after i ordered it i get on the horn with everyone - Newegg - Fedex - and even my post office - Neighbors and my priest for a few hail mary's. Get the run around by Fedex and newegg said they lost it and said they would ship out a new one after the claim processed...in 5 - 7 buisness days... I didnt like that idea so i said i just wanted a refund so i could just replace my order.. seemed simple to me since they knew they lost it. but still had to wait for it to process before i could see my money back. Well I needed my computer to function. So i asked if i could buy another just to get it here ASAP. They obliged and i reordered...FUnny thing is after being gone on business all week i was short on funds. at the time it was around 240 dollars.. but i only had 204 in my account... And they Did an unbelievable thing and just knocked down the price so i could get it and then to top it all off Free overnight shipping so i could get it before i had to head back out on the road for work... got it the next day and installed it that night!! Hasnt failed me yet im over the moon with how newegg took care of me!! Thanks again
