This review is from: Crucial M500 CT240M500SSD1 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Pros: Low price
Cons: Performance is middle of the pack for this generation of SSDs
Sometimes the computer it is in hangs for a few seconds with a hard drive activity light frozen on. Not sure this is the SSD, but it is a problem I've had with other Crucial SSDs previously.
Other Thoughts: Crucial has the name, makes their own chips, but I've been consistently underwhelmed with their SSDs. This model follows in the same footsteps of other Crucial SSD's I've own with mediocre performance and a troubling instability.
For the money, I'd rather have a Samsung instead.
Pros: Depending on your installation, the EXTREMELY long power cord is either a pro or a con.
The front power plug is always nice to have.
Cons: NoneREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Dual port, low cost, PCI-E
Other Thoughts: Finally, a low cost dual port NIC. The Syba model similar to this appears to be exactly the same card, so pick whichever is the cheapest the day you are shopping.READ FULL REVIEW
