Pros: Tested drive with Aida Pro and it gives same benchmark performance as Samsung 840 EVO 2TB, not even 1% difference
Cons: Why can't all the SSD manufacturer include 4 little screws to fix it, probably costs 1 cent for all !!!!
Overall Review: I recommend the drive for sure!
Pros: Personally I liked that this drive is actually a tad over 1TB which makes it perfect for cloning when transitioning from a 1 TB HDD to an SSD drive to improve speed and lower heat for your computer. The second best thing about this SSD is that it comes with a Key Code (inside the product box) that gives you downloadable Acronis software that you use to clone and upgrade your existing HDD to an SSD. This software is downloadable to ALL your computers and makes upgrading your equipment a Snap!
Cons: Can't think of 1 con. Performs beautifully for it's intended purpose
Overall Review: I Highly recommend this product because of the ease of transition from HDD to SSD and the cloning software that comes with it.
Pros: I've used many of these, they have all worked consistently and performed beautifully for longer than the lifespan of the computer they were installed in.
Cons: Windows 10 is a pain to install on these because of Crucial's unsigned driver. The same is true for the MX200 series. Not an issue for Win7 - idk about 8.
Pros: I've never owned and SSD before and I can honestly say so far I'm loving it. This SSD took my total boot time (I calculate it from pushing the power button until my antivirus completes it startup scan) from 5 minutes to around 45 seconds. I had a little trouble cloning my old drive to this one but I chalk that up to my inexperience cloning drives since the provided Acronis software was easy to use.
Overall Review: I highly recommend the Crucial Mx300 drives to anyone looking to get an SSD.
Pros: - Works Great
Cons: - None
Overall Review: Crucial makes a very nice SSD - I have used them in many projects now and i have never had a problem . . . I can't say the same of other brands.
Looking at you PNY. . . .
Pros: It was easy to install and configure. l copied the C drive with Paragon, and once installed in the PC, the bios recognized it and was able to boot. This is my second Crucial which is an upgrade from 250 MG.
Cons: None so far.
Pros: I bought a Crucial SSD a couple of years ago for my wife's Toshiba laptop and it's still running at Warp 10 with many thousands of trouble free hours behind it.
A friend of mine has an HP desktop which started having problems booting and asked me for help. The HDD on his machine was ok and but I was going to have to do a reformat. I told him about SSD's and he asked if I could put one on his computer. I said sure. So, I ordered the Crucial and a copy of Windows 7 Pro x64, did the installation, and now he has an SSD for his boot and a 1 TB HHD for storage and a real copy of Windows.
I waited a few months before I posted this to give those who may read this a more accurate review because you never know what will happen.
The Crucial continues to run great. My friend is not a gamer. His computer is used for general and entertainment purposes.
Cons: The SSD, none!!
The HP computer? My gosh, this was a $800 desktop. The wiring on the inside was pathetic. No cable management at all. The assemblers took no pride in their work.
Overall Review: Yes, I'd recommend this to others and that's the number one reason I ordered this for him. I didn't want him to be calling me and say, that SSD you ordered for me is junk.
I'm a fan and a believer in the reliability of Crucial's SSD's.
Pros: Easy to install. Works flawlessly. This is the 2nd Crucial SSD I've purchased in 14 months.
Overall Review: Best value per dollar.
