Crucial M4 CT064M4SSD2 2.5

2 out of 5 eggs Both DED, DYING, after 2 years 04/29/2015

This review is from: Crucial M4 CT064M4SSD2 2.5" 64GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: They worked for almost two years.

Cons: There is a known issues with this model that after how many hundreds or thousands of hours (I forget which), the garbage collector no longer works and what happens is you can start Windows or whatever OS you are using, but randomly (30 mins, 1 hour, whatever), the drive will no longer be recognized by BIOS. Windows does a BSOD. If you do a warm reboot, BIOS does not recognize a drive is connected. You must do a cold reboot, then BIOS sees it again and the process repeats. Crucial support confirmed with me this is a known issue. They say one option is to plug the power cable in the drive while the SATA cable is unplugged, and boot the computer up. Let it sit overnight and rinse and repeat 2-3 times, and it should resolve the issue. I tried that. Seemed to help for a day, and the issues came back. I do not recommend this junk unless you enjoy this kind of problem.

Other Thoughts: BTW, this happened to both the drives. One followed 2 months after.

Pros: .

Cons: .

Other Thoughts: I noticed the 3.0 USB slots were a little slow. USB sticks that should be reading 100MB/s is only reading 40MB/s and then gradually slows down to like 15MB/s over the course of a few mins. I bought the Anker® Uspeed PCI-E to USB 3.0 2 Port Express Card, with 1 USB 3.0 20-pin Connector and 5V 4 Pin Male Power Connector and plugged that into my USB 3.0 I/O connector on my motherboard. I also purchased the Anker® 3.5 inch Front Panel USB Hub with 2 USB 3.0 Ports [20 Pin Connector & 2ft Adapter Cable] and that combo gave me 100MB+ sustained reads on the same devices. Just FYI in case your USB 3.0 devices have poor transfer speeds. Don't blame the device makers.
