Still going strong after replacement


I thought the SSD were supposed to last. But just like anything else these days, it doesn't. Edit - Replacement still going strong.


The drive just stopped working. Kept on giving errors and now the thing doesn't show up at all on any of my computers. edit - Still using drive as an external drive w/enclosure for music (dejaying)

No Problems and Fast after 4 years


Loading programs (and games) is so fast with this compared to regular HDs. I'll never own another disk hard drive again.

I've had this for 4 years now. When I bought it, I went from about 2 min boot-up time to about 45 seconds from On button push to mouse clicking. Has been very stable - never needed to re-install software. Have not needed any help at all on this. It's...

A bit of breathing room...


A lot of people think you need monster drives (1 TB+), when most people don't even come close to using that much space. And now with ever more streaming and cloud storage, gobs of local storage become unnecessary.

I was quickly running out of room on my 128 GB C300 system drive (thanks a lot Steam), and needed a decent sized application drive. Bigger drives (512 GB or 1 TB+) would've been overkill and expensive for my needs (mechanicals make for bigger, cheaper...

Not a super big drive, but I knew that going in.

I bought this because of the good reviews, but it seems like there's a lot of people having issues with this drive. I wish I would have purchased a SSD from a different manufacturer.

Quick, well priced.

Incompatible with two motherboards in a row. First motherboard wouldn't always recognize the drive unless powered off first. Second motherboard, the drive keeps spiking to 100% activity for, locking up the computer. This thing actually sat as a...

11 Months - Failed


This was the second SSD I've bought and I was ALWAYS fearful of their fail rates since we read about them so often. Hard to decide if I want another.

Got it at a great price. For day-to-day operations it worked perfectly.

11 Months in I have received a warning that it is failing. Hope my backup completes before it kicks out. I have too much to do.

Failed after 8 months



Unreliable, even with 70H firmware. This is the 3rd (out of 4) M4 SSD that's failed without warning on me. Crucial has been good about RMA, but this is a waste of time.
