Crucial M500 CT240M500SSD1 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Fast read speeds. Reliable. 240GB instead of 120 like I had before.

Cons: Write speed could be higher.

Other Thoughts: I mainly upgraded for the size increase. I was using a Kingston 120GB. This was on sale so I went ahead and got it. This drive has been great so far. Read speeds are awesome. I love having the extra space for games and VMs. My only complaint is the slower write speeds. This is around 250MBs, where as the Kingston was around 500. I really haven't noticed a difference though. At this price I would definitely recommend this drive.

Pros: Descent amount of features for the price. UEFI works well. It does exactly what I need it to with no DOAs or crashes of any sort.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this for a home server. I was not overly concerned with features. Mainly wanted some that was cheap and reliable while supporting a descent amount of RAM and a newer chipset. This has worked very well for me so far. No issues at all.

Pros: Cheap. Descent IPC (single threaded performance). Stays cool and quiet even with the stock cooler.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this for a home server. I'm running Windows 8 as the host with Server 2012 running in a VM under Hyper-V. My boot drive for Windows 8 and Server 2012 is a Kingston SSD. It runs this setup very well. I really have no complaints for such a cheap part. I use the stock cooler in a case with very few fans. It stays cool even under load. I can't recall ever hearing the fan. This is not a beastly processor but for the price and what I am doing with it I feel it's a great buy. I went with this over an AMD chip for the single threaded performance. The AMD chips in the price range tend to be seriously lacking IPC.
