Summary: The drive worked for 6 months and stopped working. I sent the drive back to Crucial and get a refurbished one which worked for 1 months and stopped working. I sent the drive back to Crucial and get a refurbished one. When I tried to clone my existing drive to the SSD, I got "cannot write sector" error. I called Crucial and the support people said she could not provide support because I was not using Crucial to do the transfer and she offered to sell me one!!

Summary: This review is mostly a glowing recommendation for Crucial's customer service. -- Something you don't hear much of these days. I ordered my Crucial RealSSD C300 256 GB 2.5-Inch Hard Drive with Data Transfer Kit CTFDDAC256MAG-1G1CCA in January 2011 as a replacement for a smaller SSD drive that I use as my 'C' drive. I didn't get around to installing it until November of 2011.
Working Great so far...super fast...very easy to install

Summary: I bought this drive to upgrade my mid 2009 macbook pro. Its been couple of weeks and drive is working really great so far. Its very fast and my computer has become very snappy. applications just opens in a fraction of second. I am running on firmware 006.
Summary: It is great how technology got better and better, and this is the answer. This ssd is fast, I installed it on a macbook white 2010, and it outperfomed it's predecessor by far. Now the bottle neck is the processor, however my mac is way faster.
Summary: I've been using this as my Windows 7 boot drive for 6 months, with no problems. It's more space than I currently need, however I wanted a drive that would last me for several years without worrying about space limitations.
Summary: Very nice. I own a bunch of SSD hard drives for various computer rigs, I got this one for my father in laws computer and it has been running great for 6 plus months now. make sure you disable disk defrag and also make sure you dont fill the drive up 100% with data (set a hard drive qouta leaving 6GB free)
Summary: I have been using it for a month now, Downloading the newest software for the transfer worked perfectly. Definite speed increase on apps, and a slight increase on bootup time. All in all, very impressed thus far.
Summary: 6 months in and still going strong. I'm impressed with the speed, headroom and reliability this has added to my aluminum macbook core 2 duo. But don't be cheap like me - get the larger size. I've almost filled the whole thing up with just program data. . .
Summary: The specs are great, I researched all the hard drives. Great price/value and performance (while it worked). However this drive had a critical failure after only 3 months. IT guy said it was the controller and ran it through some test. Lost 3 months of work. This should not happen for something so important. If you buy this hard drive, make sure you make daily backups. I will try for replacement and give it another try but with more caution. Dell Latitude e6310 Good luck.
