Worked well... until it stopped one day. 4/26/2019 9:10:06 AM

Pros: - was zippity quick for my purposes.
- I own 6 or 7 of these drives, and have generally been pretty happy with how they perform.
- Mostly used in Linux-based laptops and desktop systems
- It has a SATA port, so there's not much more to talk about, but reliability....

Cons: - My drive stopped working on June 8, 2018. It is no longer recognized by any computer I put it in.
- When using the Crucial support site, looking up warranty status didn't even acknowledge the model number was valid (CT512MX100SSD1)
- This is the first and only SSD that has ever failed for me.

Overall Review: - I'd steer clear of the Crucial products and choose a Samsung if I were doing it again.

Worked great... until it didn't 12/8/2018 12:31:15 PM

Pros: Fast

Cons: Suddenly decided it didn't like any writes.

Overall Review: I used this to hold VHDs for several VMs on a Hyper-V server. Worked great for years. Then the VMs started misbehaving. I thought I was running out of memory on the server. Every time I rebooted the server it seemed to get worse.

Turns out this SSD was either failing or at best badly confused. TRIMming didn't help. CHKDSK didn't find anything. I moved everything off this drive onto an HDD. VMs behaved normally now, although slower. I used Crucial's utility to sanitize the drive and now it's behaving again, but I don't trust it. The stats on the drive show that it's used up about 8% of it's "useful life".

The drive was reading OK as I was moving the VHDs to another drive. I then tried copying large files back to this drive and it would go OK for a while (over 100MB/s) and then suddenly screech to a halt - like 10KB/s. Very strange. Seems to be behaving OK now, but when this thing failed, it caused the whole server to look like it was having a meltdown. The OS (on a different drive) was going nowhere fast.

Of the 5 or 6 active VMs that were hosted on this drive, one of the drive images seemed to get corrupted such that Windows wouldn't boot. Fortunately, I had a backup of the server that was recent enough to be OK for this one VM.

But what a waste of time.

So this has shattered my belief that SSDs were relatively indestructible. And the drive is out of warranty now.

Still running strong after 6 years of constant on-time usage. 4/17/2018 7:52:11 AM

Pros: Has been very reliable and increased the I/O capability on my SATAIII bus.

Cons: It has a thermal shutdown feature..which is good..but not so good when it shuts down in the middle of doing work w/o warning. I had to write some software that warns when the interior temp get too high.

Overall Review: This is an old design that I don't think Crucial makes anymore. You can probably find as good if not better.

Amazing SSD 2/8/2017 11:03:26 AM

Pros: quiet, fast, reliable, compact, energy saving

Cons: None

Overall Review: Don't use the packaged software to come your HDD to an SSD. It causes a lot of errors and crashes. Other than that, everything is perfect. The item itself gets a perfect review. Going on like 3 years now with no hiccups. Using it mostly for my OS and most played games along with some programming and networking tools. Works great for everything I've thrown at it. Significant speed boost.

Don't buy Crucial 1/22/2017 7:57:33 PM

Pros: Great speed, fast response.

Cons: I keep having problems with it, once in a while my computer just shuts down and the SSD is not found. Then the bios detect the ssd but windows still wont boot ... "no system disk found".

Now i keep trying to repair the boot, repair the disk, but no luck. I think its dead this time.

Loved it 1/10/2017 9:55:55 PM

Pros: Fast bootup and go. Beats superior rigs with HDDs into the game and into a functional desktop by a full minute or more. The most stable HDD of any type I have owned.

Cons: Speed bottlenecks below promised throughput often. I have never found a reason and I have dug as deep as someone with 25 years of experience building, and working on PCs.

Overall Review: I would buy a newer model if it got good reviews,

A very fast reliable drive that deserves your hard earned money. 10/18/2016 6:54:40 PM

Pros: It boots up windows from sleep, hibernate, shut down, and restarts in a manner of seconds. Windows runs so smooth and fast on this drive. It was money well spent. It is now my primary boot drive. After tasting this reliable speed, I couldn't imagine going back to a mechanical boot drive. Ever!!

Cons: None.
