Crucial MX100 CT512MX100SSD1 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Updated review MX100 512G SSD 04/30/2015

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

Pros: Drive upgradable to newer MU02 firmware. Fast and reliable.

Cons: None now that I was finally able to upgrade it once Crucial replaced the original defunct firmware update file with a new one that works.

Other Thoughts: Crucial never responded to my messages on their website about the defunct firmware update file that didn't work. But they FINALLY replaced it with a new functional file that did create a bootable CD or DVD, which works fine to upgrade the drive from MU01 to MU02. Thank you Crucial.

Crucial MX100 CT512MX100SSD1 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Nice drive with good speed and apparently good reliability. Great buy when on sale.

Cons: Crucial tech support and software QC seems very lacking. I've tried all methods to upgrade my firmware from MU01 to MU02, but either the crucial programs are poorly designed or the supplied firmware upgrade file on the crucial website is bad and is missing the firmware file that is supposed to be imbedded in the .zip file. No matter what I try, with any method, it always points to not being able to find a valid firmware file in the .zip package. I've emailed crucial about this, but no response.

Other Thoughts: Thankfully the drive works well with the MU01 firmware on mine, but I would certainly prefer being to get the upgrade program to function so I can upgrade the drive to the MU02 firmware. Their online .zip file on their website is apparently faulty!!!!

EVGA GeForce GTX 600 SuperClocked 03G-P4-2666-RX GeForce GTX 660 3GB 192-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Great video once I got it to work. You may have to play around with the seating of the card in the PCIE slot in order to get it to work properly, but once I got it set, it works as I had hoped. I am using it now in this new AMD FX-8320 build.

Cons: Took a bit of fidgeting with the seating before I could get it to post and have the system boot up okay. Using it in Win7 64-bit system with the driver downloaded from the EVGA website.

Other Thoughts: I used to like buying ATI cards for builds, but the last few builds I've done over the last couple of years since AMD took over the video company, I can't get ANY of their cards to work in Win7 or Win8/8.1 systems because of horrible color smearing all over the screen. Nvidia cards always do a great job though and the video works fine.
