Terrible

Daniel S., Amazon
2 December 2013
  • 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.

Dramatic Slowdown

Jacob B., Newegg
4 March 2013
  • Summary: From what I've gathered, I am not the only one with this issue. Supposedly it's a bad logic controller design. Whatever the issue, this has quickly turned me into a very frustrated user. I'll be shelling out the extra money for an m4. This thing is junk.
  • Pros: It's easy to install and works great at first, just like you'd expect, and it's cheap
  • Cons: I have been using this with my MacBook Pro to create a Fusion Drive. At first it was really fast and worked seemlessly with my original HDD. But once I started to install my pro software it slowed down dramatically. Even though I set up trim to be on, my write speed slowed into the megabytes per ...

Slow

  • 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.

The Crucial v4 runs extreamly slow.

J. Pena, Amazon
21 January 2013
  • 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.

Not worth it.

Peter D., Newegg
21 November 2012
  • Pros: Works but very slow for an SSD.
  • Cons: Corsair offers no firmware update. It only scores a 5.9 on Windows 7 Experience Index. I would not recommend this drive unless it the price came down to match typical 7200 rpm drive at similar capacity.

No speed increase.

Phil, Amazon
16 November 2012
  • 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.

Awful at Best

ALI A., Newegg
29 October 2012
  • Pros: Nothing really.
  • Cons: It is painfully slow especially writes. Copying from across the network through a Gig Ethernet I get around 9.4 MB/s as per Windows 7 copy operation shows. I don't see the need to use a benchmark software.
