Summary: I've sold the laptop that I installed this in but can attest to the fact that the laptop would boot up and shut down in less than half the time after installing the digital drive. I used the laptop to edit HD video and it helped that process somewhat also. Installation was pretty straight forward with no surprises. It went into an Asus G70 at the time. It also had a larger capacity standard mechanical drive as well.
Summary: Generally, everything worked like a snap, quickly (half hour) cloning my HD. My only real complaint was that there were zero, nada instructions. Understand there are only three pieces: ssd, USB cable, and cd. However, it took me awhile to determine exactly how to connect ssd, mostly how to get power. A one page diagram of steps would have saved me about two hours, but now boots soo quickly and quietly.
Summary: Worked okay for a year, then died. First time I was able to get it operating by unplugging it but only worked for a couple of days, now completely dead. With all the lost data I'm not sure if I will bother with the RMA. Easier just to buy a different brand.
Summary: Pros: quick start-ups and re-boots, dead quiet, 128GB is plenty for us since only software is on it and all data is kept on a server. I expect that SSD's will be my choice for all future computer builds. I trust Crucial when it comes to memory chips. Cons: None so far... has been in service 2 months.
Summary: super cool se disque dure la jai payer un prix super cool et sa fait 3 jour que je l est .avec ma asus p5q premiun 775 socket et il a bien prix en charge avec ma carte mere pour les prise sata et il marque 7.1 avec windows 7 64 bits cool merci ncix
Summary: i mainly just want to alert people to the firmware update necessity....especially if you have UEFI bios like i do.
Pros: this drive is fast! and crucial does provide firmware updates. i've been nothing but happy with this SSD since i got it.
Cons: here's the problem. i've read a few newegg reviews and i'd like to confirm what has been said. this drive does have a 5000 hour rule...meaning after about 5000 hrs it will stop working/have lots of issues. i just talked with crucial's online chat tech support and they confirmed this fact.
