Summary: On my DO NOT buy list. Same problems are reported all over the internet.
Cons: After 1 year of regular usage, performance dropped to unbearable. Taking 10 minutes to login and 3 minutes to launch a browser. Seq. Write: 40MBs Seq. Read: 190MBs, Random Read: 16MBs, Random Write: 0.7MBs. It became unusable! Have 6 of them for an Engineering department 5/6 had the same problem.
Crucial M4 and M500 are much more reliable options

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...
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.
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....
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
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.
