$600 Bummer

Olivus Prime, Amazon
21 December 2013
  • 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.

2.5 years later... dead

Benjamin S., Newegg
24 June 2013
  • Summary: I knew that SSD's had a shorter life, but this death seems a bit premature.
  • Pros: Large capacity for a SSD
  • Cons: For a $500 drive, it sure didn't last very long!

1.5 years later..

JJ, Amazon
10 December 2012
  • 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.

No firmware for new AM3+ motherboard

R B., Newegg
19 August 2012
  • Summary: My next SSD will not be a Cruical. If this unsupported drive was years old, it would be one thing. I've had it a year! Come on Crucial, get off your derrieres and write some new firmware for this drive.
  • Pros: Was a good solid drive on my old motherboard. Had good speeds.
  • Cons: I bought a new AM3+ mother board that has only SATA 6Gb ports. The firmware on this purported 6Gb hard drive instructs you to use only SATA 3Gb for installing the firmware. That would be a good plan....except I didn't buy a M/B with 3Gb and 6Gb SATA. Why would I? This makes this very expensive dr...

BSOD

Eric F., Newegg
11 July 2012
  • Summary: Crucial did give me a hassle free customer service so while I can't vouch for the product at this time they deserve some positive recognition for service.
  • Pros: Was crazy fast when it worked
  • Cons: It destabilized on me and bios & firmware updating didn't help. Called Crucial and they're RMAing it. I'm hopeful that the new one will work properly, but in the mean time I'll have to reinstall my OS, Adobe and other programs. You also have to fiddle with a lot of setting to get SSDs to work so ...

Mine died....

Michael W., Newegg
15 June 2012
  • Summary: Bought an M4 as a secondary drive - now reconsidering that move.
  • Pros: Great while it worked....BIOS updates are painless, unlike other vendors who have long drawn out update schemes for boot drives....
  • Cons: After just under 22 months of use, it mysteriously stopped showing up in POST, and being the Boot drive, sorta makes the computer a rather large doorstop. Did the chat support with Crucial (Don't waste your time) and ended up calling them - their servers were down and they said when they come bac...

Lasted for a year

Carl M., Newegg
28 December 2011
  • Summary: Crucial support is better than others... however they said it would be 8-12 weeks for them to fix this and or give me a new one. They said they would ship me a new drive however they would charge me full price "if" the problem wasn't covered under warranty.
  • Pros: Purchased the drive in summer of 2010. Drive was lightning fast for about a year
  • Cons: during the last few months areas of the drive have become corrupt and the drive pauses about once every 5 to 10 seconds causing the system to pause.

Unreliable but fast

Clifford M., Newegg
31 July 2011
  • Pros: Very fast drive.
  • Cons: It regularly reports it is corrupt to other programs, but not to WIn7 chkdsk. Then when I reboot, chkdsk starts and runs, showing no errors. It then reports not corrupt for awhile. Crucial support was very quick to respond, but not helpful. They suggested that I upgrade the firmware from ver 6 to...

Some freezing

Ross B., Newegg
21 July 2011
  • Summary: Unfortunately, I cannot be 100% sure that this freezing is caused by the hard drive and the hard drive alone. It is possible another piece of hardware is also responsible. If anyone has any insight into this issue, I would be happy to ammend this review.
  • Pros: The hard drive works well, it's very quick and easy to install. I've had the hard drive installed for ~60 days. I have only had one problem, which is listed in the "Cons". Other than that, the hard drive is a great upgrade from an optical drive.
  • Cons: About 2 weeks after installation, I was in the middle of working on a document and the hard drive locked up. This now occurs 1-2 times per week, during various tasks; the hard drive light goes solid and then the computer freezes and is completely unresponsive. Normally, a hard reboot is required,...
