Awesome boot up speed! Short life.

  • Summary: Kinda thought a solid state drive would easily outlast a mechanical one, but that turned out to be a fallacy.
  • Pros: Easy to install and use. Didn't get edgy with it, just installed it and let it run with default settings. You just can't beat hitting the power switch and watching the bios flash and seconds later having the Windows desktop up and ready!.
  • Cons: Bought it in late 2011 and it just died on me (7/8/14). Its slow death began with infrequent problems like programs disappearing or characters not displaying. Problems became more frequent until computer would not boot. Not going to pan it too much, but I'm obviously not happy with the longevity of this drive.

Works great, for a while

Anthony D., Newegg

  • Summary: The warranty period for this drive is three years, I am going to try and contact Crucial when I get home and get this warranty process started. I will update this review when I find out how difficult or easy it is to get a replacement drive.
  • Pros: When this drive was brand new and it was my first SSD, I couldn't believe how fast my computer would run. This this is an amazing drive for keeping your OS and main programs on.
  • Cons: I have had this drive for two years and two months, and just like Robert S. I was having BSOD's and a bunch of odd windows problems and resets. I had a spare hard drive lying around which I installed Windows on again, and now my computer has no problems at all.

Good while it lasted

Calvin K., Newegg

  • Summary: Upgraded to a Corsair FORCE GS. Its a little quicker, and definitely better priced
  • Pros: It had killer speed. Booted w7 in under 15 sec. 3 years ago it was the best priced for the size.
  • Cons: After 3 years it just started giving me the same crash and reboot to bootable disk request others have been getting. Even though its an over priced dinosaur now, its numbers are still quicker than most new ssds.

18 months and a cloud of dust

Edmond M., Newegg
30 November 2013
  • Summary: I just purchased a Seagate 240GB SSD at a Black Friday price of $141.69.
  • Pros: At the time that I bought it, it was the only SSD that I could afford ($85.99 in April 2012).
  • Cons: Complete failure at 18 months. That's not going to cut it when it comes to repeat business. Crucial? I don't think so!

Good but short lived

Michael G., Newegg

  • Summary: It hasn't "bricked" but I think it's the culprit...
  • Pros: Fast and quiet while it lived. Used as boot drive (Win 7).
  • Cons: Appears to be the cause of recent BSOD crashes. Not recognized as boot drive during soft reboot ("restart"), then bootable after full shutdown.

Disappointed

Darewood S., Newegg
12 October 2013
  • Pros: Good price to value for a SSD. Easy to install, three year warranty.
  • Cons: The drive has failed after only two years. I will be contacting Crucial to see if they will replace as this is within the warranty period.

Great for a year

Peter R., Newegg
29 September 2013
  • Summary: I do not know what happened, but it seemed to have been corrupted and gives me the BSOD whenever it's plugged in. Even if I'm not running an OS on it...Tried formatting it with windows install, with my synology NAS, and then again with my new OS - which it crashed!! I had a good run but now I am very confused.. To the trash I guess....
  • Pros: Great for running an OS separate from everything else.
  • Cons: just a tad small for cache comfort (using for just OS)

User Review

Steven B., Newegg
19 July 2013
  • Summary: Will try having the manufacturer replace it for me, hopefully it goes well.
  • Pros: Was a very nice drive, although it had a bit less memory than I needed (my fault for the misjudgment). Very fast and never gave me any issues until recently.
  • Cons: After roughly 1.5yr of having the drive, it seems to have died on me. It will run as if everything is fine for about an hour, and then the PC will BSOD and the drive will be inaccessible. This only happens when booting from my SSD. Before this is was a great drive, however it didn't last nearly as long as I would have hoped.
