Pros: It worked for a few days
Cons: It died, it just won't boot - I get a no boot device found error all the time. Put my old HDD back in, booted first time as expected, and I'm back to where I was less the 3 days I lost messing with it; the stupid thing is that I can plug the MX200 in using an external eSATA cable and get to all the files on it, it just won't boot. I used Diskpart to try to reestablish the boot partition but it still won't boot.
Had several terse support calls with Crucial who eventually told me it had to be RMAd. What they didn't tell me was they weren't going to ship the replacement - that might have been used anyway - until they received the dead one and they (originally) were insisting I paid for shipping. So I've sat here for a week waiting for the 'new' one to arrive only to find it hasn't shipped.
This is going to become a return.
Other Thoughts: What a waste of timeREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Now I have it working, it's awesome. I am on Windows 10 and I cloned my HDD to this SSD
Cons: Even though the www.acronics.com website says that Acronis is now Windows 10 compatible, the free version that Crucial gives you the key for isn't. It gives a useless error message that says "Clone Failed". You can run it in Windows 7 Compatibility mode, create a bootable USB drive, stand on your head and chant Ummmm, and it still doesn't work. EaseUS also doesn't work. Ignore this if you want to waste 4 days like I did - 1 star knocked off and I'm being generous. In the end I downloaded Macrium (free) and it eventually worked.
Other Thoughts: Even after my Macrium clone, the SSD would not boot - this was my problem after I managed to get 'successfully cloned' messages. Check out this link for a suggestion on how to make the SSD bootable if this is your issue http://www.tenforums.com/installation-setup/24984-windows-10-clone-ssd-will-not-boot.html#post413218READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I bought this board in Oct 2013 with an AMD FX4350 Vishera CPU and it's been awesome from day 1. I started with Windows 7 64 and it's just upgraded itself to Windows 10 and is still running like a dream - I also got over 20 Gigs back off my 120 Gig SSD C: drive.
Cons: At first I fitted a Corsair Enthusiast PSU but it a) made noises and b) failed after 9 months. It was replaced by a SeaSonic M12II SS-750 AM2 PSU and that has been problem free ever since.
