Summary: Replacement drive for a laptop with a dead sata drive. Was easy to install, no changes to bios required on the 3 year old laptop. I don't notice any measurable speed increase, but the laptop only has 2GB of ram. The silence of an SSD is great for a laptop. Wish I took the plunge years ago.
Summary: I bought this drive direct from Crucial.Uk for a late 2008 Macbook Pro. The M500 was actually compatible but I was led to believe that the M500 was not compatible by Crucial's drop down menus (which are generally good). The SSD was okay at the beginning but now it's so so slow, it provides a much worse experience than any standard mechanical HD I've ever used. There are loads of better drives out there.
Summary: I got this about a year ago and used it as my Boot Drive. It slowed my PC down a lot and within a few months, started crashing my PC or randomly freezing for 10-15minutes at a time, by which time, I'd have to switch it off at the plug, which I hate doing. It's now sat in the bottom of a drawer and I have no idea what to do with it...
Summary: I put the drive in a USB-enclosure, formatted it, at was ready to use it the day after. I thought. I cannot see the drive, reformat it, anything. It simply stopped working the day after i formatted it.
Summary: Unfortunately like many of the others I am also experiencing very slow speeds with this drive. I will be trying to update the firmware from 22 to 25 to see if this fixes the problem but to do this I need to use a Windows machine making it very difficult. I would recommend a different drive to avoid all the problems.
