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 price.
Summary: I bought this drive to replace the stock 128GB SSD that came with my Mid-2010 Macbook Pro. I spent over a year with the drive and never realized it was the sole reason my computer was running so slow. I re-installed OSX, and tried everything I could to speed up my computer which would crawl whenever I did basic operations. Finally I read the reviews of the V4 and realized the drive might be at fault.
Summary: I installed the drive to living room PC to watch DVD. It worked fine without any problem but after a year and half of usage, SMART indicated the potential drive malfunction and next day, my PC could not recognize the drive any more. Good for short term use but not reliable for long term use.
Summary: The v4 drives are prone to failure without warning. I purchased two of these drives in 128 and 256G, both have had to be RMA'd, and even one of the RMA'd drives have since failed. Crucial/Micron has subsequently replaced both v4 drives under RMA with m4 drives. If you are fond of Crucial/Micron I strongly suggest the m4 series as an alternative.
Summary: This harddrive crapped out in less than a year. No excuse for that! I would NOT recommend this drive to anyone. Matter of fact, I'm going to replace it with a 7200 rpm, either seagate or western digital, tried and true. DO NOT WASTE your money on this drive UPDATE: After 3 days of my computer being down and doing everything their tech support asked me to do, the drive is still unuseable and I wound up buying a western digital 7200 rpm, 1 terabyte for 1/3 of the price of...
