Very nice having a PC that's "snappy." No problems with the drive (now 6 months old). I'm very happy with it.

Consider the bare version: Crucial 256 GB m4 SSD CT256M4SSD2 or the Crucial 256 GB m4 SSD with Data Transfer Kit CT256M4SSD2CCA, especially if on a price dip. You'll need a SATA cable (under $5) but the bracket included in this kit might be unnecessary, as noted below.

Setting up a new primary drive can be a lot of work. Maybe these notes will save you some hassle.

First of all, have a good laugh at those of us who paid $200 to $300. Prices are dropping fast. Use camelcamelcamel (google it) to see if the current price is at low tide, or temporarily inflated.

I don't want to do another install 3 years from now. So, I'm glad I got the 256GB, which is 4x my current needs. All the big data (photos, music, video, backups) can go on hard disk (secondary drive), so 256GB may last forever.

1. Don't assume you need a "drive bay adapter kit" to work this 2.5" drive into your 3.5" drive bay. On my Dell Studio XPS, using an empty drive bay was the wrong plan. It goes much better nearer the current hard disk. Power connector reaches.

2. I crafted some aluminum brackets while waiting for it to arrive. Hah! It weighs 2.5 ounces. Two thin strips of adhesive Velcro is probably the simplest and best mounting plan.

3. SATA III cable. You need one.

For many years, the largest bottleneck in computers has been their mass storage. While processor speeds, memory and buses have all scaled up to be able to support higher transfer rates, the lowly HDD has only modestly improved by comparison. So, in this day and age of multi-gigabyte application and OS installations, it starts to become very apparent that in order to achieve the kind of lightning fast performance we all dreamed of 20 years ago, the HDD has to go.

Enter the Crucial M4 SSD... one of the least expensive, yet best performing of the current generation SATA3/6Gbps drives. To be fair, it's not the fastest drive on the market. But it does have a very stable controller and the firmware is fairly mature. I chose this particular SSD after doing exhaustive comparisons with its contemporaries and found it to be the best balance of price, performance and stability of the bunch. Installation on my early-2011 MacBook Pro was a breeze, with no surprises.

Out of the box, my M4 was already flashed with the latest firmware version. Within 2 months of owning it, Crucial released yet another update. It flashed just fine, without having any data loss (which as I understand it, can be problematic with some other models). After that, a quick Google search yielded an effective procedure to enable TRIM support in OS X. Aside from those steps, installation of my OS and apps was unremarkable - roughly akin to installing a new hard drive, but MUCH faster. With my old HDD installed in a Firewire 800 enclosure, cloning it back to the SSD was a relatively simple affair.

The difference in performance is readily apparent upon first boot - that is to say, the OS now boots within 15 seconds - and that counts the EFI firmware initialization process (which is roughly 1/3 of the wait time).

This is my 2nd Crucial M4 512 GB drive, and I absolutely love them. I just got this 2nd one today, and this is the first one I have with the 3.5" drive bay adapter plate. Since I just received the drive today I can't speak much about reliability yet, but I thought I would point out a few things I have learned.

First, (and the only negative thing I can say) is that the plate holds the drive off-center (see product photo) -- to the extent that most typical hard drive screws that hold the bracket to the computer case by the sides will hit the side of the drive when tightened (this includes the screws that ship with the unit). To get around this I found (in my vast collection, and with luck) a very short screw that would not hit the drive. I prefer to use the screwdriver-less type of screws to hold my drives, but all of those were too long for this. If Crucial would have just centered the drive in the bracket there would be no problem at all. I recommend testing the screw depth and either look around the house or go to the hardware store to get some short ones that clear the side of the drive. I think the longer screws wouldn't really damage the drive so much as they would prevent a good, snug fit overall.

There is basically no user manual that comes with the drive. I found that the drive needs to be placed upside-down in most desktop computer cases, and that the finer threaded screws are the ones that hold it to the bracket, while the course threaded screws (described above) hold the bracket to the computer case.

Second, speaking to the people who have had difficulty with data corruption: it is very important to enable AHCI in the system bios BEFORE formatting or installing the OS.
