Don't believe me? Google "Crucial V4 slow" and you'll get enough reading material to fill your day. Lot's of problems with incredibly slow performance out of these drives. I would spend the extra $20 and get the M4, or go with a different brand. I've had great success with Plextor SSD drives as well.
I'm taking out my last update as the problems returned very quickly after I thought I had it fixed.
Don't buy this drive unless you have a pressing need to save a minimal amount of money and you need to be able to bump your computer around without worrying about ruining your spinning drive. I've tried everything I can think of to make it work to some level of satisfaction, it's junk. Spend a few dollars more and get a better drive. Crucial support has blown me off now since I made my initial complaint, they've lost a very long time customer.
Let me just qualify my notes here, I've been a customer of and have recommended Crucial for years now and have never had anything but the best products and service from them. I think they are a good company that just made an iffy product with too many performance compromises for the sake of meeting a price point.
I am not at all impressed with this drive. I have a Mid-2010 Macbook Pro 15" that came with a 320GB Toshiba 5400 rpm HDD. I installed this at the recommendation of the Crucial website, but at least in this machine, I have had flashes of great performance follow by infuriating delays and beach balls. Sometimes Microsoft Word will open in about 3 seconds, other times 20 seconds or more. Restarting the computer can take 1.5 minutes to close to 10. I have read a lot of posts from other users that have had similar performance problems, and a few folks have indicated that this drives controller seems to have issues with certain motherboard chipsets(?). Crucial doesn't seem to know about or acknowledge any compatibility problems with this Mac.
At this price level the compromises aren't worth it, just pay the extra $10 or so and go with a SATA III (6Gbps) drive like the Crucial m4 or OCZ Agility 4, neither of which appear to have these performance problems.
I would recommend steering clear of this one if you have the Mid-2010 Macbook Pro 15", I'm going to be getting a new SATA III drive for the Macbook and moving the Crucial v4 into my desktop to use as a boot drive and I'll update my review if I get better performance.
Just my opinion.

DON't but v4. Their deals are not because they are cool, it's because it's crap. Nobody wants to buy it and it crash in time. I wanted to ask them to change it for better brand but the option to write them is off on amazon so am writing you my experience.
As I found out when regular HDD fail you still can get your data, when solid drive fail thats it, good bye so better consider spend more money and don't thing about making good deal.
As to why I'm horribly disappointed with this SSD, I will tell you. The Read and Write speeds are appallingly slow. It averaged at 113mb Read and 26mb Write. Programs take painfully long to run and not to mention install. When playing games I experience stuttering and freezes. When multitasking I resort to Mobile Games while the system sorts itself out of common freezes. I cant get use my copy of Adobe Photoshop because it cant run stable. I haven't tried Blender yet for fear of what might happen.
-There is nothing up my *** at the moment... so...
-Defective on Arrival
-Way too small for modern day programs
It might be fine for Facebook Users, but it is serious Bottleneck in my Computer.
My I5 4690K and GTX 970 are chain ganged to this little potato until I can get a replacement.
Now I can try updating the firmware on this one and see if that helps, but it's disappointing to have something so promising be so useless out of the box.
