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: 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.
Summary: Great SSD...fast read and write speeds really improve Windows 7 performance. The OS boots to my desktop in about 15 seconds (have an Intel i7 950). Word and Excel take about 3 seconds. Photoshop and Premiere load in about 5 seconds. For video editors cutting HD & uncompressed footage in Premiere CS5 with the Mercury Playback Engine...this is a must have.
