SSD Fail!

Sean C., Newegg
9 August 2014
  • Summary: Don't take my word for it. A little searching and you'll see this is quite common with this drive.
  • Pros: It's an SSD.
  • Cons: This drive worked for while before giving me issues. I read that my mobo might not support SSD as it was an older system. Went back to my RAID0 x 3 and put the M4 off to the side and forgot about it as I could live without it. It's been a year and I have a new system as a home server. I can now verify it's a bad drive. It has the latest firmware and has this disconnect issue. Programs stop responding before Windows itself crashes. After the reboot the M4 isn't even li...

Do not buy this drive. It will die on you.

Christopher W., Newegg
1 July 2014
  • Pros: Fast
  • Cons: Unreliable. This is my 3rd RMA from crucial. Every drive I have received works fine within the first few months, then roughly at the 1 year mark, it starts to cause system freezes, BSODs, the works. Talking to technical support is useless. They tell you to try a different sata, update firmware, and power cycle. Once you do all of that, they run out of ideas. Skip the pain of going through RMA's and replacement drives. Get a different brand.

Junk

  • Pros: Very fast when it works
  • Cons: Stopped working in 7 months. Computer shuts down without any warning. Let's see how strong the warranty is and if Crucial will honor it.

Stay Away

TOMMY M., Newegg
28 March 2014
  • Pros: Very fast drive at time of purchase. Good price.
  • Cons: Drives fail constantly. Replacement drives under warranty fail as well. I have about 10 of these in Win 7 Dell E6530 laptops and they have cost me a ton in labor due to drive failures. Crucial tech support acts amazed every time we call to get a drive replaced as if it's the first failure they have heard of. On a few of the drives they have had us connect only the power cable to the drive (or boot into the BIOS only) and let it sit over night to let the drive do "hous...

Failed 5 days before its 1st BDAY...

Heather C., Newegg
14 March 2014
  • Summary: Never buying from this company again.
  • Pros: Great SSD for the time it worked
  • Cons: Noticed slowly before it failed that after powering on the system that it was not showing up as a boot-able device. powered on and thought it was a cable issue. It died after a month of on and off again finicky behaviors. The final score was Playing DayZ and the BSOD was its last light before it died.

Broke

Michael P., Newegg
12 March 2014
  • Summary: Crucial has been very unhelpful and so far blocked my efforts to engage the warranty.
  • Pros: It worked for a year and a half...
  • Cons: After said year and a half, it began acting wonky, then, a couple days later, quit functioning altogether.

Dead.

Robert S., Newegg
3 March 2014
  • Summary: Installed Windows on spare SSD and computer is back to working like a champ.
  • Pros: Worked great!
  • Cons: Just like so many others are experiencing, this drive started to fail out me. Computer freezing, hard resets, blue screens of death. What a pain.

Died after a year

Amazon Customer, Amazon
16 February 2014
  • 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.

Died After 2 years, RMA is problem

Ali T., Newegg
9 February 2014
  • Pros: Worked for 2 years.
  • Cons: Unreliable after long use. Drive has died after two years (less than 3 that was warranty period). It would boot, OS will work for few hours, then disk i/o errors. Generated bad sectors. RMA process in crucial does not work for this drive. Overall I caution against buying crucial ssd products now.
