Summary: It substantially improved the disk access time on my computer. Would have liked more space on it but at the time the cost per GB was too high for me to want more. Nevertheless I put the OS and a few other things on it and used a second drive for data storage and programs that weren't used as much. Working real good.
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: very fast, im happy overall with the drive. I am using it as a bvoot drive with win7 64bit. I was able to trim win7 down to only 24Gb but I still wish I had more space. Nothing wrong with the drive just but I definately wish I had gotten a 128Gb so I could atleast put my main games on for quick loading!
Summary: It sucks that doesnt come with a software and cable to clone your previous hdd data. For the average user that doesnt know too much about computing, is not helpful. Its better to get some that knows about installing hdds. Im getting a bit of more speed but not as I expected like "20s boot times" and stuff. My pc boots in about 40 secs. Maybe its because my board is not sata 3 version. And I think is better to make a clean install of the OS. Im sure it will improve.
Summary: I decided to mod my 13" MacBook with a dual drive setup, using an SSD for my startup volume (OS and Applications) and a larger HDD for documents. This required removing my superdrive; installing the existing hard rive in a caddy that slots in where the superdrive usually goes; and placing the SSD in the original HDD's slot. The Crucial m4 is an excellent drive for this task.
Summary: Although the drive that I received came with an out of date firmware, this is easily correctable on modern OSs (and a tad bit more work if you are using Windows XP like I am).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.
