Summary: Crucial will definitely be on my radar whenever I do my next build.
Pros: Bought two of these five years ago. I use one as a boot drive and another for a couple games. Fast boot time, and it dramatically cut load time for Everquest2. Oh, and they're five years old and running strong.
Cons: A bit small, but five years ago SSDs were relatively new.
Pros: Installed on a desktop PC as a boot drive for windows 7 and programs. On 2011/03/26 CrystalDiskMark results: Sequential Read : 340.005 MB/s Sequential Write : 72.077 MB/s On 2015/08/02: Sequential Read : 345.381 MB/s Sequential Write : 70.388 MB/s Still as good if not better than when it was firs...

It is fast and based on how quickly technology is advancing has been reliable and not needing replacement even almost 5 years later which is better than I can say for everything else in my system. Boot time compared to other systems I work with make it h...

Why of why did I wait so long to make the switch to SSD??

Summary: Didn't take long to run out of space on this petite little number. But I added a second, 256 GB Crucial SSD to act as an app drive. All non-app data lives on mechs.
Pros: Life changing experience. This was my first SSD after owning countless old-fashioned mechanical hard drives (including a 10k Raptor that sounded like a jet engine). What a difference it has made! My machine now takes longer to POST (RAID, memory check, etc.) then it does to load Windows (~15 seco...
