Pros: I've had this SSD in my system since 2011. 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...
Cons: The first drive I received the rive it was bricked but Newegg's awesome return service sent me a new one quickly. I had to reset the drive to factory settings due to a power outage, hardly a con to this drive though.
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...
Summary: I have had this drive for 3 years. It has been super fast and knowing crucial as a typically dependable brand, I thought it would keep going for a lot longer. Sadly it seems to be giving up, having hiccups and pausing for long periods of time.
Summary: After many attempts I couldn't get the transfer kit to work correctly. It appeared I could get data some to copy, I could never get the drive to boot. After several tries (apparently the MBR couldn't be copied, or copied correctly) I gave up and just did a fresh install.
It did not work and the review online are not good.

Summary: I should have done better research on this product. I did not pay attention that is a micro sata, which you need to buy ($10) interestingly on Amazon if you need it to fit a standard sata cables! Also, the reviews on the tech siters rank this really low since they have problems.
