Summary: Just purchased the Critical mx 100 for the system i am building for myself....Review to follow in a few weeks on that SSD
Pros: Purchased this SSD november 2013 mainly to install windows 8 on my sons gaming PC. Since then he has also loaded multiple games on to this ssd with great success. We have had it for a year now with not even one problem
Pros: When on sale this drive is a steal compared to most other drives aside from Samsung which has higher read and write speeds. This drive has fantastic read speeds and pretty good write speeds. I don't feel its anything to take a star away for and not noticeable at all.
drive will give bogus SMART errors in many motherboards

Summary: I am a computer repairman with 42 years experience. I saw the one star reviews regarding SMART errors and decided to test the drive in a handful of systems I had laying about. Yes, some motherboards complained about SMART errors on boot.
Summary: So far this harddrive has delivered as expected. I bought this as a secondary harddrive to put all my games on. I can say I load into games alot faster than before and I see a major difference.
Summary: Pros: I'm a Linux user, so my choice of benchmarking and testing is through Linux HDD benchmarking software such as gnome-disks. Using Linux, one can get an accurate representation of the speed and ability of a a HDD or SSD as the drive does not need to be mounted, nor does it need to be formatted...
Summary: The Seagate 600 SSD 240 GB worked like a champ. I purchased a Patuoxun USB 2.0 to Sata Converter Cable, downloaded Seagate software and cloned the drive on my Toshiba laptop. Installed the SSD and it booted up and worked right away.
