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 ...
Cons: Drive started to stall after 30 minutes of use and the system had to be rebooted to continue. Called Crucial for RMA and after giving them all the information, p/n, s/n, etc off the drive they decided they needed a picture of the drive before they could issue an RMA. The 3 stars are for Crucial's...
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.
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.
