5 stars for price, capacity, speed and reliability.

  • Summary: Very fast drive with a good price for the size. Most reviews focus on speed, because the far more important factors reliability and longevity can't be tested or compared easily. For what its worth, I had no problems with this drive so far, having pre-ordered it, and having gotten one soon after...

Satisfied

Daniel K., Newegg

  • Pros: No complaints. This drive helps contribute to a reasonably quick desktop. My Win10 machine boots in approximately 25-30 seconds.
  • Cons: The price to capacity ratio is a little more disappointing with SSD's, but that's to be expected.

USEFUL

  • Excerpt: It required a new firmware update before installing. Works fine, did have trouble finding up to date instructions on how to transfer data from old drive. I think I will go with the samsung next time.
  • Pros: Highly Compatible, Quiet
  • Cons: Difficult To Install

Bad Drive, Bad Customer Service

Bennett C., Newegg
26 February 2015
  • Pros: The replacement drive seems to be operating O.K.
  • Cons: The drive died after first attempt to partition. Crucial then charged the replacement to someone else's account. I had to untangle their mess for them.

Review for Crucial M500 240GB SSD

VANA M., Newegg
25 February 2015
  • Summary: Overall, this is a great budget SSD to buy. Windows loads faster, games load faster, and transfer speeds are blazing! Literally, drop into my laptop, loaded Windows 7 and installed necessary drivers in less than 20 min.
  • Pros: Crucial - good brand name SATA III connection Solid build Fast SSD with 240GB (I only got 234GB) Got for a good price (at $85+tax) Fits right into laptop Super quiet, makes no noise at all (durh, because no moving parts!)
  • Cons: Doesn't come with Bracket mounts for PC, but can be purchased separately, not really a con I always gripe how we NEVER get the full 240GB, instead I got 234GB...

Hope your Crucial product works because getting it replaced is a nightmare. Horrible support.

Greg A., Amazon
14 February 2015
  • Summary: Purchased this product. Product is defective and won't detect from multiple devices. Crucial wastes customers time with a RMA process that stalls. Hopefully your Crucial product works because they don't back their product. Not buying Crucial products anymore. They lost my confidence.
