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...
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.
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...
but they coul have better documentation that allow customers to avoid well know posible ...

Summary: I installed this SSD on my new Yoga 2 13. I migrated the OS from my original 500GB HDD to the M500 by using Paragon SSD Migration, and it worked perfectly. The performace increased a lot. as expected.
Hope your Crucial product works because getting it replaced is a nightmare. Horrible support.

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.
