This review is from: Crucial M500 CT240M500SSD1 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Cons: Can't upgrade to Windows 10.
Is not recognized
Other Thoughts: I have been using this drive in my Asus Q501LA for over a year now with Windows 7 installed without issue. I never liked Windows 8 so I didn't even consider it. Well I decided to upgrade to Windows 10 and come to find out, this drive is not recognized by the installer. I've tried literally everything from formatting to BIOS settings. Nothing. Upon further research I found out that many other people with the same and different machines are experiencing the same thing. Thanks to crucial I cannot upgrade my OS. Bottom line: Do not buy a crucial SSD.READ FULL REVIEW
Cons: Connection problems galore.
Other Thoughts: I've had this card n my laptop since I've owned it, as it is the card it came with. That said, this card is trash. It has constant connection problems with waking from sleep. Nearly every time I wake my machine I have to troubleshoot the connection. Like the speed of the card but the reliability leaves much to be desired. If I were you I wouldn't even consider the 7200 series.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Nice looking, easy to set up, reasonably reliable(more on this in the cons)
Cons: When I found out that these could double as an access point as well I bought two of them to increase coverage in my house. It's not huge, the smart box is located in a closet where it's hard to get a good signal. So naturally I placed the access point upstairs since the router is downstairs. Let me tell, these fail completely as an access point. As a router this thing cut my speed in half, but as an access point it's just pathetic. It constantly cuts out for seemingly no reason. I've tried different channels, making sure not to interfere with neighbors or my own initial router, but no change. Customer service was an absolute joke, as I got little more than the "Have you tried resetting it?" response. They barely knew anything about the product they were "supporting". Needless to say, I will likely not be purchasing another networking device from WD.READ FULL REVIEW
