Slow, slow, slow.

James, Amazon
6 June 2013
  • 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.

What a waste of money

Walter, Amazon

  • 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.

failed

Marek, Amazon

  • Summary: I got HDD Crucial V4 in october. Since than it failed once in 2 weeks but I could install system again and was working for another 3 weeks and than failed for good, I couldn't do anything. Unfortunately that was Christmas time and I went for over a month to see family in europe. When I was back I found out that my return time expired so I stuck with piece of trash. DON't but v4. Their deals are not because they are cool, it's because it's crap.

Crucial 128GB V4 has been very unreliable.

Joe, Amazon
22 January 2013
  • Summary: I bought this drive in August 2012. It installed easily and ran fine for a few weeks and then started having booting problems. Diagnosis showed a number of bad data blocks had developed scattered all over the SSD. I restored the drive and tried again. I called Crucial tech Support and they were no help. On the fourth rebuild in 5 months, I gave up and sent it back. I do not recommend this drive.

Very Slow Garbage

AMDGuyMichigan, Amazon
17 December 2012
  • Summary: This item was very slow and performed mediocre compared to a standard sata drive. what was most distrubing is that it crashed and had to be reloaded 3 times within the same week. Send this back for refund and definately would not buy this model again.

Worst SSD ever

Jona Gold, Amazon
4 December 2012
  • Summary: I'm in IT- I replace drives and reinstall operating systems all the time. I've been a fan of Crucial for awhile, and I still like the M4 drives that I am currently using. That being said, the V4 is garbage. I purchased three of these to do some upgrades for clients and every one of them is worthless.

Absolutely awful, Crucial should be embarrassed.

HossBud, Amazon
7 November 2012
  • Summary: ***LAST UPDATE*** I'm taking out my last update as the problems returned very quickly after I thought I had it fixed. Don't buy this drive unless you have a pressing need to save a minimal amount of money and you need to be able to bump your computer around without worrying about ruining your spinning drive. I've tried everything I can think of to make it work to some level of satisfaction, it's junk. Spend a few dollars more and get a better drive.

Don't do it..

Stephen Russell "Stevie Russ..", Amazon
6 March 2014
  • 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.
