This Product Is Just Fine! 06/15/2012
This review is from: Crucial Adrenaline CT050M4SSC2BDA 50GB Solid State Cache for Windows 7-based PCs
The "Crucial Adrenaline" does exactly as advertised and works perfectly. I see just a "few bad reviews" (3 as of my review). All I can say is... "READ SPECS/REQUIREMENTS BEFORE YOU BUY SOMETHING"! It speeds up old mechanical drive access times, loads times (of Windows and Apps), etc. Takes a couple of runs to get to FULL performance. Teamed it up with an "old" 76gb WD Raptor (Sata-I / 150), now this old Raptor rocks. All my other systems have Intel SSD 520 series, which are fast, it does'nt get your old mechanical drive that fast, but it falls inbetween the speeds of an old mechanical drive and new SSD drive, which is good!
I always read personal reviews b4 making a purchase decision, as it is helpful it determining the hardwares reliability & performance. However, lately alot of people are putting in "bad reviews" and giving the product a bad reputation, when it does'nt deserve one. So many people do not follow the sys. requirements and/or follow instructions, the product does'nt work correctly then, and they turn around and blame it on the product. First, if you have "WinXP", the "Adrenaline" does'nt like XP and will more than likely cause issues.
Not sure what issues the reviewers that had bad experiences with the Adrenaline are doing wrong, maybe they just got faulty drives, maybe they are running Windows XP, maybe they are doing something else wrong. All I know is.. it works great for me and 87% of the other reviewers that bought it. 87% good reviews = good product. To many people rush into purchasing something without making sure they meet the requirements, read about what it conflicts with, or don't stop and think, maybe I just got a faulty device.
