John W., Newegg
23 August 2015
  • Summary: On my DO NOT buy list. Same problems are reported all over the internet.

  • Summary: I'd avoid this one if you value your system & data.
  • Pros: Had fast SSD speeds at first initial use.
  • Cons: Out of the blue, in the middle of a gaming session, it died. Now is completely unreadable by anything I plug it into.

Crucial M4 and M500 are much more reliable options

Dave Mourad, Amazon
11 August 2014
  • Summary: This drive failed in my Mac Mini from 2006 after a year and a half of use and the last few months began showing signs of spotty performance. DO NOT purchase the V4. It sounds as though Crucial has developed better and more reliable solid state drives with the M4 and M500 Series for about the same...

Huge Disappointment

William S., Newegg
20 June 2014
  • Summary: Would not recommend to anyone. Looks like I'm not alone. Will try returning to Crucial. The 1TB HDD with which I replaced this as my Win7 boot disk is snappier than this SSD ever was.
  • Pros: None.
  • Cons: Had this drive almost 2 years. Purchased to use as (hopefully faster) boot drive on an older WinXP system. No improvement in performance and many, many issues, so gave up and used it as a backup drive only. With XP's end of life, decided to try installing Win7 on the SSD which I did successfully....

walk away

Joshua H., Newegg
1 June 2014
  • Summary: if you absolutely have to go with crucial, go with the M4 series, less apt to fail. but all in all, there are many other drives out there of the same size that are faster and much less expensive
  • Pros: no pros at all, not a single one
  • Cons: i work for a company that built an entire line of computers around this drive (over 200 systems), both the 128 and 256gb. they had nearly a 90% failure rate within 9 months, and a 100% over a year. these drives are complete junk, and even crucial recommends going with the M4 instead of the V4

Crucial v4

Tom R., Newegg
8 May 2014
  • Summary: Bought this when it was $60 over a year and half ago. I bought two of these and there is nothing good from these drives, Hard drive light activity stays on even when doing nothing on the pc. Windows shows 100% disk activity while only reading and writing at 500kb a second.
  • Pros: Nothing
  • Cons: Slow, Corrupts data.

Michael T., Newegg

  • Pros: The SSD worked great for a short while.
  • Cons: The SSD went out after half a year. The OS started acting really weird and everything was crashing/running slowly. Finally it just stopped working completely.

Six Months Later

Nic N., Newegg
14 April 2014
  • Pros: They're ssds, even lower spec ones are an upgrade from spinning media.
  • Cons: I/O Errors, failed reads, dropping in and out of system at random. One drive has completely failed now and shows up as a garbled name at bios level. Using them in a RAID1 setup.
