19 Months Of Flawlessness

Pros: Fast. Quiet. Reliable. Relatively inexpensive (for an SSD). 19 months of use with no issues whatsoever.

Win7 Home Premium 64-bit installed in about 25 minutes. After enduring multiple 4+ hour installs of WinXP on HDDs over the prior 6 years, this was amazing.

EDIT 06/09/2016: Purchased April 2013. As of June 2016 this SSD is still my main working drive. No problems.

EDIT 06/13/2018: This has been my main working drive for over 5 years. Everything I download from the internet goes here, and any files I create start out here. No problems whatsoever.

Cons: None. None at all.

Other Thoughts: I bought my first-ever SSD - a 128GB Crucial M4 - as my main OS drive for a brand new build. I liked it so much that 7 days later I bought second one - this 256 GB model - as my main "scratch" drive.

19 months later, both drives are working perfectly.

I'm writing this review now because I logged in today to buy a 512 GB Crucial M4 on which I intend to reinstall my OS, as well as have room for some additional programs.

I considered a 1TB SSD, but the prices are still too high for me. Years and years of HDD failures make me leery about putting too much money into a drive.

I considered a Samsung SSD due to their reputation for reliability, but found a lot of recent stuff online about their "old data slowdown" bug. So went with my tried and true Crucial for my new drive.

Rock solid after 4 years

Pros: - Fast
- Consistent
- Problem free

Cons: - None?

Other Thoughts: Built a new computer with all new hardware exactly 4 years ago with this as my C: drive (along with 16GB RAM, 3570K OC'd to about 4.2ghz) installed Win7 Pro 64bit in about 25 minutes, still boots up in about 15-20 seconds. Have never had a single problem with this drive. Had to RMA a stick of RAM after a few months but otherwise I've never had to touch my Windows install or re-install programs.

I've worked in IT my whole life and have no qualms troubleshooting issues and even expect them after a few years, but I'm seriously amazed at how smooth this computer runs. I can't recall the last desktop I built where Windows was this stable after 4 years of solid use. I do hobbyist coding with SQL server, light gaming, along with music production with Ableton and DJing with Traktor. All my media (along with documents, downloads etc) is stored on mechanical disks but all of my programs and games live on C:. Photoshop CS6 starts in the blink of an eye. Even after weeks of uptime programs still install and load faster than ever.

I don't even hesitate to to recommend this drive to others and have on many occasions. Sure you can get 256GB SSD drives for cheaper these days but I'd gladly pay this price for this drive again in a heartbeat.

Still Going after years of Use

Pros: - Fast
- Quiet
- Purchased on 7/19/2011

Cons: - had to apply an update as there was an internal limit on hours of use initially... minor nuisance

Other Thoughts: - I would suggest this drive to anyone, even better value as the price has dropped since my initial purchase

Stay Away

Pros: Very fast drive at time of purchase. Good price.

Cons: Drives fail constantly. Replacement drives under warranty fail as well. I have about 10 of these in Win 7 Dell E6530 laptops and they have cost me a ton in labor due to drive failures. Crucial tech support acts amazed every time we call to get a drive replaced as if it's the first failure they have heard of. On a few of the drives they have had us connect only the power cable to the drive (or boot into the BIOS only) and let it sit over night to let the drive do "housekeeping". This has revived a few drives but in every case it has failed again in a year or less.

Acer Aspire 7551 Upgrade

Pros: The transfer kit disk cloning and SSD installation was straightforward and flawless. The new SSD performance is worth every penny. Booting is so much faster as are program startups like Google Earth, Adobe Elements and some other large image files programs are unbelievably faster to load. What a difference! And my laptop is only SATA-II while the SSD is SATA-III. I can only imagine the improvement if my laptop was SATA-III capable.

Cons: I am sorry I did not do it sooner

Other Thoughts: Newegg is a class act! Good products, great service, quick delivery and there when you need them.

Get ready for troubleshooting

Pros: Lightweight

Cons: Put unit in new build as system disk. Worked for about a week then errors started happening (I thought I was getting an SSD not a HD) frustrated I just pulled the unit out and bought a different SSD from a Korean mfg which has been working flawlessly.

Other Thoughts: Poor mfg and quality control and wasted a lot of time believing it was a different component on a i7 2011 build.
