Summary: I decided to upgrade my Dell Latitude D531 from XP to Windows 8, when it was on offer for £25, and invest the money I'd saved into an SSD. I was looking to improve speed and prolong battery life. I've achieved both objectives although to a slightly limited extent. It is always difficult to perform totally objective battery life tests but I'd say that battery life, from the original, 5 year old, power pack is, at least, as good as when the machine was new with the SSD.
Summary: I installed a 64Gb version of this same drive. Unfortunately it was not at firmware version 25. Updating it was easy but working out how and actually going through the reformatting process was time consuming. Once set up and operating this drive, after a couple of weeks seems to be lightening fast.... I just hope it stays that way. You have to make a number of adjustments to get it to light speed but even in SATA 1 mode it seems to be very rapid.
After a few months moderate-to-busy use of the Crucial CT256V4 SSD 256 Gb

Summary: I have delayed reviewing this item until now to make sure it's working properly. Now I can safely say that it works very well on my 5 year-old PC and presents no problems. As my m/board is rather dated I also use an SSD accelerator in tandem with this drive. However, with having installed two large music programs as well as WIN7 on this Crucial 256 Gb SSD, I wish I had bought the 512 Gb product. I move less frequently used docs to my Hard Drives.
Summary: Bought this for a storage options CCTV kit as the hdd originally in the nit was a little noisy. Replaced it and worked immediately. Good value for money, good performance. For using as your main storage device in your PC I would suggest a large SSD or HDD.
Summary: I ordered this and it arrived the next day, and for the price it's very impressive. I have an old(ish) but powerful laptop and was looking for ways to glean a little extra performance from it, and for a shade over £100 this seemed like a plan :) the drive arrived in a box, well protected but on it's own - no transfer kit, brackets or anything (as expected). Installation was a doddle, taking less than 5 minutes, and for an extra drive it's ready to go out of the box.
Summary: Crucial v4 64GB +++KAUFGRUND+++ Eine der ersten SSD Festplatten mit der ich zu tun hatte, war eben die, die ich meiner Freundin eingebaut habe. Sie hat ein Notebook, und da ich dort auch hin und wieder mal dran bin, wenn ich gerade mein Notebook mal in der Firma habe und vor dem Fernseher etwas ins Internet möchte, nutze ich den auch. Das ist ein Toshiba Notebook, das ursprünglich eine 500GB 2,5" Festplatte hatte.
