Solid after almost 3 years of daily use.

Summary: Obviously buy one of the new newer M500's or MX100's now. Great alternative to Samsung Evo.
Pros: I just bench marked this drive a few days ago with CrystalDiskMark and its read/write speeds are still as advertised. This is after almost 3 years of daily use. Firmware upgrades were always painless. If you buy one now it should come with the latest firmware.
Great SSD - no problems in over 3 years of onwership

Summary: Been using this SSD for over 3 years now of daily use and as a main OS drive. Have upgraded firmware couple of times(painless process and didnt even have to reinstall OS ) and it never gave me any problems while always being as fast as they get pretty much. It was my first SSD and since then i have purchased over 10 different SSD(once you go SSD its very hard to go back to HDD of even hybrids for anything but pure storage needs) and while some were faster i still use...
Pros: Fast and reliable - what else could one ask for in SSD?
Summary: Right now this SSD is my primary OS on my home computer since I don't need a whole lot of space. Barely using 80GB right now. No need to upgrade until this takes a fall. Would recommend to anyone but not sure about the $250 price tag on it now!
Pros: Bought this from Newegg back in Nov 2012 and I didn't even pay half what it is selling for now ($114 on my order history here). Not sure why this is selling for $250 now, there are a few other SSD's that out class it, maybe I'm missing something! It's a great drive and while I do remember it having a firmware update right around the time I bought it, I haven't updated anything since then. I've reinstalled my primary OS at least a dozen times since buying this and I re...
Cons: Haven't found a single thing to complain about in this hard drive for the first time in a very long time.
Summary: This drive has been handling my operating system, development machine, and most of my gaming adventures for quite some time now. No degradation in performance, it operates with fantastic speeds, and is an absolute must replacement for an HDD. Something to take into consideration would be even if you think you don't need that much space, 256GB will disappear much quicker than you think.
Summary: Excellent SSD. Worked great in my PC until I realized I needed bigger. Swapped it into my grandmas old laptop because she was complaining it was too slow. I couldn't have made her happier. She loves how quick and responsive her system is now.

Summary: Crucial m4 512GB 2.5-Inch Solid State Drive SATA 6Gb/s with Data Transfer.it fit perfect in my laptop and runs great. if I needed another for a backup I would buy from the seller again. Perfect transaction. perfect product. Thanks for the great transaction..
Summary: Make sure to update the firmware when you get this if it's not at the latest firmware already, you should have no problems. I've had this drive for over two years now, if I get two more problem free years I'll be happy.
Pros: So my previous review from two days ago can be taken down (I don't know how to edit reviews, if that's even possible) - I should have done some homework on this drive to realize that I had the very first firmware version on this hard drive. After being on the phone with tech support, who are awesome at Crucial by the way, I was able to update my SSD to the latest firmware and get everything running again. This drive is so much faster than the platter drive I was using...
Cons: Updating the firmware was a bit time consuming with the BIOS resets and all, but not really a 'con,' just something you have to do to ensure proper functionality.
