Unreliable hard drive

Nicholas C., Newegg
21 January 2014
  • Summary: I have had this drive fail not once, but twice. Crucial's power cycle procedure failed to fix it the first time, but it just started working again a month or so after it failed the first time. I decided to give it a try again and it completely failed six or so months later. A hard drive should be reliable before it's fast. I would never recommend buying this drive.
  • Pros: Fast drive - as it should be.
  • Cons: Unreliable

Fast but not reliable

Michael S., Newegg
13 June 2013
  • Summary: Do any SSD's stand the test of time?
  • Pros: It's incredibly fast.
  • Cons: It failed after about 10 months. I can still mount the drive as a slave but a considerable amount of files can no longer be read from the disk. If you're going to use this drive make sure you backup your work frequently.

Great Drive

Ralph R., Newegg
30 May 2013
  • Summary: I wish I had the cash to buy more. I could use 2 more of these things.
  • Pros: This drive works well and is fast. Doing a search on 1.5 million records PINNED the my 3770k processor on all 4 cores. The drive was NEVER the bottleneck in getting things done.
  • Cons: None. Very fair priced and no failures. No whistle like some other drives.

Great drive

Raymond S., Newegg
29 April 2013
  • Summary: If you are using this as an OS drive in a desktop and you don't use hibernation - you can save a ton of space by turning hybernation off (windows related - do a google search for the commands). I would move the page file if you have another drive - to save room as well - at the price per gig SSD's still cost - it's just not worth it to keep junk on the drive you don't need
  • Pros: This drive promises fast I/O and it delivers - write speeds are "OK" for an SSD - still blazingly fast and this drive shines where it counts - which is peak I/O performance.
  • Cons: It's a laptop drive - so if you want to use it in a desktop you need a tray to put it in. It's only 256 GB

Fast

Joseph, Amazon

  • Summary: This is my first SSD and I have to admit that I am amazed at the start up time for my computer. I can go from a cold boot to ready to work in less than 30 seconds with this thing.

Poor Customer Service

Laura B., Newegg
6 March 2013
  • Summary: After trying multiple times to clone the hard drive, contacting customer support and then following their advice I was unable to switch to the new hard drive because it wont transfer the OS properly. I am running Windows 8 and was skeptical because I wasn't certain that the cloning software would work. After being assured by representatives at Crucial that the cloning would work fine, I decided to order the hard drive.
  • Pros: It could be fast based on other reviews, but I haven't been able to find out.
  • Cons: Bad customer service.

Awesome

Grigg H., Newegg
6 March 2013
  • Summary: get it, it's good.
  • Pros: Transfer software and device worked great, couldn't be easier, took about 3 hours to transfer. went to youtube to find out how to actually replace the drive in my HP laptop. Very easy if you take your time. My core i5 laptop runs very fast now, boots into full working windows in about 45 seconds.
  • Cons: I wish it was half this much money
