Crucial M500 CT240M500SSD1 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Excellent customer support

Cons: Required latest Windows 7x64 drivers, not only SATA. 2010 not good enough.

Power saving option "Turn off HD" must be set to "Never", otherwise computer freezes when going to sleep.

Other Thoughts: Torrent-related freeze was fixed by updating NIC driver. Sleep issue was fixed by power saving setting, advised by customer support.

Looks like, this drive is more sensitive than M4, and may require time and patience to make it work. Knowing that, I would stay away from it.

Crucial M500 CT240M500SSD1 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: 240 GB. Looks nice.

Cons: Problem #1: Windows 7x64 freezes when going to sleep mode. After updating firmware, freezes became crashes. It turned out to be known compatibility issue with AMD chipsets.

Problem #2: Torrent clients hang the computer after running a minute or so. Again, turned out to be a known issue, this time the trim operation.

Other Thoughts: Used the same computer, same operating system, with M4, Chronos, and V100, not a single issue.

I am not sure if I got a lemon and should go for replacement, or wait for the next firmware upgrade.
