Great for cloning boot HD

survey dan, Amazon

  • 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.

Stable, Silent, Zippy

  • Summary: Although the drive that I received came with an out of date firmware, this is easily correctable on modern OSs (and a tad bit more work if you are using Windows XP like I am). Aside from that the drive has been stable, perfectly silent (as expected since there are no longer any moving parts there), and has given a 5-year-old laptop a new lease on life.

Trusted name with a flawed product

J. Gabel, Amazon
9 January 2013
  • Summary: This SSD was "OK" for the few weeks that I owned it. There is an issue with these drives that Crucial has acknowledged but not fixed yet. If the system is powered down unexpectedly, the SSD can get "stuck" in an "on" state. What I mean is that if the SSD is not sent the shutdown command and the PC powers down, the SSD remains in the "on" state and can't be recognized by the BIOS on reboot.

  • Summary: I have an intel 520 for my system os, but picked up one of these drives to act as a caching drive in the z68 chipset's feature. In benchmarks, it's not the fastest, it's not the cheapest and it doesn't have the coolest name. What it does have is that it does what it's meant to do, be a disk drive that is reliable.
  • Pros: - Works, no problems, - Reliable
  • Cons: - A bit pricey, - Does not come with a mounting block (Intel's come with a mounting bracket)

  • Summary: This is my very 1st purchase of an SSD drive, and to be honest, I really wanted the OCZ Vertex 4, but when I saw this 256 GB drive for only $169.00, it was a no-brainer for my budget and purchase. The drive is INCREDIBLY faster, than my former WD Black drive, and of course runs much cooler. My boot time alone went from shut down to reboot into OS ready to work from 2 minutes more or less to under one minute.
  • Pros: Very Fast, stable, runs cool, 256 Gb's, good price
  • Cons: Little bit startup issues IF computer shuts down via power outage.
