Summary: I dont know why so many people are having problems with this drive, I am running this on an AMD windows 7 computer and my boot time is about 35 seconds, way better than a spin disk could ever do. Its only a 3gb/s sata and kinda slow for what SSD's are capable of but it works great for a boot drive.
Summary: Originally I had a problem with this SSD, but after installing windows 8 recently I have had no problems. This is most likely due to the fact that I did a clean install. I suggest doing that if you are going to upgrade to a SSD. Its worked well so far with the exception of one problem.
Summary: Great Quality drives as stated above. The drive has been working great for a couple mouths now. I've compared it to my OCZ SSD and both have great performance. Love the Crucial and for the price its a great purchase. will be setting the two up in raid later.
Pros: Brought new life into an old 2007 Macbook Pro 3,1. The MacBook Pro is only capable of SATA1 so this SATA2 SSD was more than sufficient. The system was running at 50MB/s read/write with the old 5400 RPM HDD. It's now hitting 150MB/s read/write (3x performance increase).
Summary: This was my first SSD hard drive purchase. With me having a 6-core computer with 8GB of ram, I was thinking a SSD would really speed this thing up. I got the drive, and it was very easy to install. I had no problems at all.
Summary: I'm not claiming all of you who left negative comments/reviews on this product to be mo-rons, but some of you are. Simply because you failed to do research on a product's intended purpose and capabilities & limitations from its manufacturer.
Pros: Works well for it's intended purpose and performs well for its described application from the manufacturer. It boots a little faster than some standard HDDs not all.
