1 out of 5 eggs Don't buy. These drives are only good for about `1 year of use. 09/03/2016

This review is from: Crucial MX100 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) CT256MX100SSD1

Pros: It is fast and works great until it doesn't

Cons: I have had two of these drives. They seem to start freezing after a little over one year. I had one replaced under warranty after a little over a year. It would just stop after 30 min. Cycle power and it would be good for another 30 min. The replaced drive has lasted for a little over a year. Now it starts loosing files and then goes off line. Again a power cycle will restore it for a day or so.. Restarts do nothing. It must be power cycled to restore function and the "lost" files. So far nothing has been lost once power cycled.
Luckily, I only use this drive for my working copy of my files and for Firefox temp files. It is very annoying. Not worth RMAing yet again. I'm just buying some other make drive.....

Other Thoughts: It may be cheap, but don't waste your time.

Pros: Fast drive, easy to install. I have one on my 4 year old laptop as the C drive. Brought this old laptop up to useable speed. Enough that I can wait another year or two before upgrading it.

I use another one as a swapfile and major program drive. It is still too small for the maindrive of my big computer, but it is plenty big enough for the pagefile and the two or three programs that I need to be speed up, plus my "working" directory of projects. It also is great for those VM files for VMWare.

Came with most recent firmware already installed.

Cons: The free shipping using DHL is painfully slow. Six days from NJ to MD! UPS ground gets it here in one day. Even USPS would be one maaybe two days. It is almost worth it to pay for shipping or at least see who else has it with better "free" shipping.

Pros: Fits in fine, fan is on the top, which means you have room for cables right up next to the supply case. Solved the problem of cables covering up the air vent that I had in the last build. Quiet and good cable lengths for a mid tower, Plenty of power too

Cons: A little expensive, but you get what you pay for.
