1.5 years later..

JJ, Amazon

  • Summary: This SSD has a tone of corrupt sectors after 1.5 years. It was the TOP SSD with rave reviews, the problem is that most of rave reviews are written by the honeymooner. Of course a SSD is nice and fast when it's first installed, but this one doesn't seem to age well.

Don't buy this SSD

Peter "peter24", Amazon
14 March 2012
  • 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!!

No problems after 6 months

  • 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. Update 5/30/2013: I've been using for about two years with no problems.

  • 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)

fast but unreliable

Dan, Amazon

  • Summary: Hard disk is fast, I used it for development and it's a must have. ROI is about 1 month. customer support is great, support people speak english, are smart and helpful first disk failed after 8 months, second refurbished disk failed again after 3 months soon I'll be getting disk #3 but putting it in a computer that I can tolerate to have down (the kids!) I have other SSDs that are much older and have never failed Keep up on your backups!

4 Intel SSD my first Crucial

R. Farnsworth "Microking", Amazon
18 July 2011
  • Summary: I have been buying crucial memory for over a decade, has always been pretty reliable and solid quality. So after buying 2x X25-M 80GB and 2x X25-M 160GB Intel Gen 2 drives (All rock solid so far) when they first came out, I was running out of space on my now dated Thinkpad T61p which has one of the Intel X25-M 160GB drives in it.

Good stuff!

A. Brayton, Amazon
4 July 2011
  • Summary: I just bought a new 2011 Mac Book Pro 15" with the 2.0 i7 CPU and with all of the speed designed into this notebook, they go and drop a 5400RPM drive in it. I could have gotten my MBP with an SSD but for less money I get an SSD with a 3 year warranty as the standard from Apple is only one year and I did the same thing with the memory. There are so many good drives available, I wanted to stay with a brand that I was familiar with.

Crucial C300 is slow/lags/freezes...!

scottls1 "scottls1", Amazon
16 June 2011
  • Summary: Disgruntled software tech!- I have a new Win 7 (x86) ZT desktop, Intel H67 MBO, i7/2600k cpu, max 1333 memory, new Crucial firmware 0007 (Must do 0002,0006 First!- Google CrystalDiskmark drive info, to see what firmware you now have?). All the latest Intel driver upgrades- Run their auto-detect support site tool. Ran freeware ISO Memtest86 (x86 only, and takes hours), and memory is good. Complete system reinstall didn't help.

Very fast and reliable

obachan, CA, Amazon
14 June 2011
  • Summary: I purchased RealSSD C300, 64GB to make my 4 years old PC to hybrid system. I reinstalled windows XP to realSSD, then copied back data files, such as "My documents" folder, "desktop", "outlook", movies, music etc. to SATA HDD, configured XP for it. The result was very stressfree, fast PC with a lot of storage space with small amount of investment. Very happy with the purchase.
