Great SSD

Pros: I love supporting Micron and love even more that their latest SSDs (the BX100 included) are top-tier performers relative to competing products. This SSD has been deployed in a security appliance box and has so far performed flawlessly.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Of course, this SSD has only been in service for a little over a week so I can't comment on long-term performance/reliability. I will update this review accordingly if anything arises, however my experience with other Micron drives built on the same 16 nm process has been very positive.

Update 12/19/2016: This drive has been operating 24/7 in my router/firewall box for over a year now and no issues whatsoever.

Dropping out

Pros: Inexpensive and fast

Cons: I have had this for about a year, and it has started to drop out. I get errors of this sort:

Source: iaStorA
Event ID: 129
Description: Reset to device, \Device\RaidPort0, was issued.

Source: Disk
Event ID: 51
Description: An error was detected on device \Device\Harddisk2\DR2 during a paging operation.

Source: Ntfs
Event ID: 57
Description: The system failed to flush data to the transaction log. Corruption may occur.

To fix it, I have to shut down the PC completely, with power off for 30 seconds, and reboot.

Other Thoughts: I use this only for daily backup of files, so very little is written to it. It should last forever.

I have had problems with two MX100 drives also, which are somewhat similar. The MX200 series is better, thus far.

Great SSD

Pros: Very quick SSD (For the year it was made and using the ACHI protocol still). Win 7 automatically picks it up at boot.

Cons: None really other than the ACHI protocol is going to be replaced soon by nVme

Other Thoughts: 120GB is great for a boot device, but only for such matters. Your better off getting a 240GB or above if you plan to put games, videos, or High Quality photos.

Outstanding little drive!

Pros: This drive has worked wonders for my start-up! I timed the start from a dead stop, and came to a impressive 37 seconds from button push to active desktop. That's including me selecting the account for Windows 7! This drive is marketed as the "affordable" SSD upgrade, and that is definitively what it is. If your'e looking for something to speed up your computer significantly, then I truly suggest you give this drive a shot. Although it is more expensive than its counterparts, the old adage, "you get what you pay for" stands true with this one. Trust me on this, it is TOTALLY WORTH THE BUY!

Great low-priced drive

Pros: First few days and nothing but great performance. New build using this drive as boot drive and Windows 8.1 OEM (system builder). Cold boots to user login screen in about 12 seconds. So far it's a great drive, as expected from Crucial.

Cons: None

1/ 5

Pros: I have two crucial SSD's in my main rig, one is an M500 CT120M500SSD1 and the other is an CT240M500SSD1. Both have been excellent. Blazing fast and reliable, after a year I have had no issues and based on those two I would recommend Crucial. However...

Cons: I got an empty box. Nothing. Zero. One sealed, and empty box. I was so excited when the delivery came and I could put this build together that I had planned for weeks. But now I don't know if I can even get my order fixed. Can I RMA an empty box? Who wants to spend $150 on one 120gb SSD? This isn't 2013. Hopefully Crucial or Newegg can come through and fix this. I will be back to post updates. In the meantime I suggest that maybe you wait or look at a competitor. I still cant believe it. An EMPTY BOX.

Other Thoughts: It was empty.
