It's an ssd hard drive, but was not as fast as I expected.
5 August 2013
Summary: I went and bought another drive that is a Hybrid SSD and now I use this one as a backup drive. I don't think it is the drives fault, maybe that Windows XP doesn't know how to utilize it properly.
Summary: I bought 11 of these for a small new computer deployment, and I was so excited about getting SSDs so cheaply that I did not research them very thoroughly. I've now switched one machine back to the 7200RPM drive that came with it, which seems much better. Now I can try updating the firmware on this one and see if that helps, but it's disappointing to have something so promising be so useless out of the box.
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 ordered this drive to upgrade an older MacBook for a friend. The upgrade worked flawlessly, the performance improvement was amazing! I was so glad I found such an affordable SSD for them. And a merchant whodelivered on what was promised!
Summary: I bought this drive thinking I would upgrade my netbook. I have an Acer Aspire One 725-0687 and was hoping that this would be an improvement in speed for the netbook. It was not. Be aware that a slow computer will not benefit from an SSd drive, much less a slow one like the Crucial V4. This drive has modest read rates (220mbs max) and horrible write rates (75mbs max).
Summary: I've bought this SSD for an older DELL PC with Intel E8400 Processor and a SATA II-Port. The SSD is incredible slow - it feels slower than the original hard disk drive. Take another SSD for your PC, the crucial V4 isn't worth the Money.
