Great product.

Pros: As always, crucial SSD's do not disappoint.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I would never buy another brand of SSD, bought over 15 of these in the last 2 years, and they all perform flawlessly.

Free Cloning Software + Speed Boost

Pros: Certificate for free download of Cloning Software (Acronis True Image HD) included in the box with this BX100 SSD. Be sure to look for the piece of paper!

The other free download is Crucial Storage Executive. See "Other Thoughts" below.

Cons: none at the price

Other Thoughts: A couple of other reviews mentioned the lack of cloning software or support.
The BX100 box contains a little piece of paper which has a number you can use to download Acronis True Image for free and use that to clone your existing hard drive (or existing SSD) onto the new BX100.
The Crucial website Support pages offer video tutorials on how to install your new SSD in various situations. These are very helpful if you've never installed one before.
Also offered on the website's SSD Support page is a free download of Crucial Storage Executive. This "toolbox" software will assist you to install firmware updates, check the health of the drive(s) and to enable a feature called Momentum Cache. This feature has 2 benefits:
1. It gives you super-fast burst speed for Read and Write actions.
2. It caches bunches of small size files and writes them all at once. This extends the overall life of the SSD by minimizing the number of Writes.
The website's SSD Support page also has a compatibility chart so you can check if your computer is compatible with the chosen SSD. That seems like pretty good support without having to wait on hold on the telephone!

Crucial SSD

Pros: Good performance to price ratio especially since price drops and specials are common to reduce inventory.

Brought new life to a seven year old system that used to boot from a spinner.

I did not clone my system I wanted a fresh install so I didn't use the Acronis software. But I was curious to see if it was still available after reading other comments so I went to the URL and had no problem downloading the package (263MB).

Cons: It's too bad that Crucial doesn't offer a software suite similar to Sam's.

Great speed

Pros: This is an amazing jump from my 6 year old HDD. shaved 2 minutes off of my overall boot time on Windows 7 Ultimate. No problems so far.

Cons: Needs to come with some sort of imaging software. I used Paragon Hard Disk Manager and was able to image straight to the SSD, plug it in and boot up with no problems.

Crucial BX100 SSD

Pros: I deal for small PCs and limited space.

Cons: No instructions come with the Crucial SSDs. You have to pay extra for the unit. Very poor customer relations.

Solid!

Pros: Easy to get in. VERY fast.
Benching it against two other platter drives on the same system, they averaged a decent 120-130 MB/s while this lil guy is in the 230-250 range.

Cons: I dunno.. it didn't come in a Buy one, get 3 free pack?

Other Thoughts: It's tiny, it's light, and it's fast.
While I've used laptop sized drives in a desktop before this, even those laptop drives had some heft to them. This felt like a keychain decoration or something. Cannot wait for SSDs to be the industry standard.
Also: Windows 7 apparently recognized it for what it is and it took it automatically out of the weekly Defrag schedule, since you don't need or want to on one of these drives.

Awesome upgrade!

Pros: Just cloned a 4yr old 1TB WD SATA drive to this over the weekend.
so far it has not had any issues, and the computer is blazing fast. 7.9 on Windows 7 rating, but we all know that doesn't mean much anyway.

Cons: I wish this came with some drive software for cloning like some other models do/did.

Other Thoughts: If you need a lot of fast storage, you will be hard pressed to beat this drive for overall price/performance.
