128 GB C300 SSD

Brendan M., Newegg
12 July 2011
  • Summary: Some problem with LPM and Intel Rapid Storage Technology..? Crucial support over email told me about 3 different things to try and no luck so far. Gotta get on the phone with them soon to figure the problem out.
  • Pros: Fast. Works well 95% of the time. Got is on sale from newegg for less than 200.
  • Cons: Stuttering, blue screens, infinite lockups have been plaguing me for months now. They happen rarely, but I just can't rid my computer from them. I've surfed many sites, edited the registry, reverted drivers, disabaled LPM, uninstalled Intel RST ... but I'm still getting tons of lockups.

Reduces energy and improves shock resistance

Bob Clark "Frustrated gadgeteer", Amazon

  • Summary: The improvement in performance to my netbook was marginal. I installed the Crucial 128GB C300 Solid State Drive (SSD) into a Toshiba NB305-N600 netbook. The hard disk (HDD) in the netbook was one of Toshiba's 7200 rpm jobs, so in terms of overall speed the two devices were about evenly matched. For example, the netbook runs Windows 7 Home Premium.

Died after six months

Enchanted Tiki Room, Amazon

  • Summary: This Crucial SSD really sped up the laptop running Windows Vista. However it died after six months. I sent it back to Crucial for repair. At the same time I also purchased a 256GB SSD from Kingston. That SSD is still running strong, no problems at all. If I had to do it over again, I would buy two Kingstons.

Faster, but not by much

I Live in 91607, Amazon
25 January 2011
  • Summary: I just installed this on my one year old Dell XPS 9000 desktop system, (Intel i7 processor, 2.7 Ghz, 12 GIG RAM.) After reading the reviews, I expected to be blown away by the lightning fast speed. Well, it IS faster but I would guess maybe 40%-50%?? Pulling up programs is faster but.....I don't know if acheiving this speed is worth $535. Maybe I did something wrong?

Bare drive

Harrison, Amazon
5 January 2011
  • Summary: I got this to add an SSD drive to a new computer I was buying. I wanted a faster boot drive in lieu of doing somesort of raid configuration. I got to where I wanted to be but the drive was not really a great choice for me because it was totally bare. No software, no meaningful instructions, no screws, no cables. It was obviously an oem version. This made it awkward to install and get running.

Great for a month

Peter d., Newegg
19 September 2010
  • Summary: Kind of a bummer that Crucial/Micron has not solved this disk write degredation problem yet. When I asked them about it, I got the runaround. "No one has reported anything like this" etc. But there are lots of similar reports in their Forum pages.
  • Pros: Fast reads. Seems generally reliable. Much faster than HDD, even with CONS below.
  • Cons: I have two. Running windows 7, 64 bit on HP 6930p. 1) I get BSOD when computer wakes up from sleep when I use the Intel Rapid Storage driver. I do not have this problem with the Microsoft AHCI driver. 2) After one month, disk write speed has dropped from over 200 MB/sec to 65 MB/sec. Read speeds remain between 275-285 MB/sec. Supposedly TRIM and Firmware 2.0 was supposed to fix this, but in my case the problem persists.

This may turn out to be a great drive, but...

Tom Koger "Grwisher", Amazon
6 May 2010
  • Summary: The first roadblock was (according to Crucial support) that you should not clone the drive in order to replace your old drive. It is not a big deal, but it is a little easier and there is less drama if you could clone to replace your old drive. On the Mac, you install the drive, load your operating system and in my case, reload from TimeMachine. Once I did that, it seemed fine except I was not experiencing the speed I expected.

Crucial RealSSD C300 128GB 2.5IN Solid State Disk Flash Drive SATA3 6GBPS

  • Excerpt: It works, it's nominally quicker than the traditional HDD I replaced it with. Applications launch a bit quicker, and appear a bit much more fluid in their response time. It's only nominally faster than the standard HDD I replaced it with. From all the other evaluations on here, I believe it's definitely over hyped. The operating technique (Windows 7 x64) doesn't load any noticeably quicker, even on a fresh install.

  • Excerpt: Value. Availability. Has difficulties functioning with the Marvel Controllers. Mine was utilized with an ASUS Rampage Formula 1366 mobo. Worked sporadically, hung system. Had to return it. If I read testimonials 1st may well have had an concept it may well be an problem. When it worked it was fast. Just verify compatibility with your motherboard controllers first on the net before you buy. Purchased an OCZ Vertex three works flawlessy, not 1 issue.
