Slow

teachermom, Amazon

  • Summary: I should have listened to the other reviews. This drive installs easily and does exactly what you want it to do. EXCEPT, it is as slow or even slightly slower than the HDD I replaced it with. I needed a replacement for a laptop that has blown out two HDD's in two years because it gets knocked around so much while it's running. For that, I'm sure this drive will completely fit the bill. However, don't expect SSD speeds from it.

The Crucial v4 runs extreamly slow.

  • Summary: My Crucial m4 is lightnight fast, but the cheaper v4 version runs much slower than the old magnetic drives it replaced. A quick google search of slow Crucial v4 shows that hundreds of others are having the same issue. Skip this drive and purchase the m4 instead, Slow v4 forum link: [...

Worked fine for 3 months

Hoboken reviewer, Amazon
19 December 2012
  • Summary: But then it died. I was very happy with the performance when I first got it, but obviously in retrospect, it seems not to be very useful. Luckily I didn't have anything too important on it, but that's just by chance. I'm not sure if I'll be able to retrieve any of the data at this point.

Caching and Access problems

George R Jenkins, Amazon
10 December 2012
  • Summary: I'm not sure if it's my BIOS or just a problem with this SSD but at times it screams and other times it takes forever. I've disabled BITS and Windows Update (all updates) and it helps but still has random caching issues when multitasking.

No speed increase.

Phil, Amazon

  • Summary: I replaced a 5400rpm hard drive with this and the computer actually seems slower. I even increased the memory from 2 to 4gb. Just seems like a poor product.

Terrible

Daniel S., Amazon
24 August 2012
  • Summary: Super slow my 7200 hard drive was wayyyyyy better. This SSD freezes all the time. It is the worst SSD I have ever bought from Crucial I usually buy M4s from Crucial I decided to go for this one because I had a hard drive and need an SSD for the OS. and this could have made it without problem, but it was terrible.

do not buy...

Marco "Marco", Amazon

  • Summary: this SSD is extremely slow and will bottleneck your setup. Buy a SAMSUNG 840 EVO. Spend a little bit more. If you're getting an SSD dont cheap out, you will regret it.
