Don't get suckered.

I was looking to upgrade my harddrive in my desktop. I have a great, newer rig built for gaming and was looking for a SSD to round it out. I found this one on sale and couldn't pass it up. I wish I did. I had nothing but problems the entire time using this drive. It was slower than the spinning harddrive it was replacing. Anytime I was installing anything the computer was unusable. It would take anywhere from 5 minutes to 15 minutes for the computer to become usable after a restart.

As far as I can tell from searching online, the issue was a firmware problem between the drive and certain Intel based motherboards and processors. Other Crucial SSD's have the same problem but were fixed with a firmware patch. Crucial never bothered to patch this SSD. There is a user made patch that fixes the issue but it requires a complete wipe of the drive first. At that point I just didn't care and moved on to a different SSD.

Replaced this with an Intel 520 SSD. It was 1,000 times better. Please don't bother trying to save a little bit of money and just get a better SSD. I never had a problem with the Sandisc SSD I have in my laptop either.

UPDATED 6/2013
After 6 months of aging run, the SSD suddenly started reporting tons of read errors. The first symptom was that it could not boot the Linux kernel image. Luckily, the latest kernel image suffered bad sector(s). Why lucky? Because it made me realize the unfortunate situation at a very early stage. If somewhere else in the middle of the SSD had a defect, I would not have been able to figure out what was going on so quickly.

Although the latest kernel image was damaged, the one version before was okay to boot up. So, I booted up the system and tried to fix the error by having the SSD remap the bad sector(s). No luck. The error count in S.M.A.R.T. kept increasing.

I looked for troubleshooting information at Crucial's website. Not much help.

I finally called Crucial tech support. A representative told me that a firmware update would fix the problem and directed me to a web page where an updater program was downloadable. Okay, I booted up the system with Windows from a different disk so that (I thought) the updater would be free to do anything on the failed SSD. I ran the updater program. It kept saying "No device found."

I called Crucial tech support again. This time another representative told that the updater program would create a bootable DOS image on a USB flash stick which I needed to prepare separately. I read back the updater program instructions twice more. No clear mentions about such EXTRA USB drive I would have needed to prepare.

Okay. Another trial. I created a bootable USB stick and booted up the system from it. I ran the updater program body there. 25%..50%...75%....100%...Done! >>>> SELFTEST FAILED! Great! I tried to run the updater again. No use. It no longer recognized the failed SDD.

I chose this SSD for my dad's desktop machine. It's a bit older machine (originally built in 2006) but very capable so I figured that this drive would complement the build decently. The mounting plate aligns perfectly and looks nice and the build quality of the drive is fairly rugged, and actually more substantial feeling than the more expensive enthusiast-grade Crucial M4 drive I used in my own machine.

Performance has been generally very good. Measured with HD Tach, I'm getting faster throughput than is displayed on the package. Windows 7 loads almost immediately as do all the programs on the machine. As other reviewers have noted, sometimes there is a slight lag, but nothing terrible. The other 98% of the time, the drive runs very nicely. Along with speeding up his machine, it's silent and has helped quiet it down from how it was prior to the upgrade where it had two Seagate 80 GB SATA hard drives running as RAID 0.

It does very well as what it was designed to be, which is a mainstream solid state drive, primarily for machines that aren't exactly new, but still have lots of life left in them.

This was my first SSD hard drive purchase. With me having a 6-core computer with 8GB of ram, I was thinking a SSD would really speed this thing up. I got the drive, and it was very easy to install. I had no problems at all. After installing windows on it, and all my programs, I noticed that it really isn't that much faster than a normal hard drive for me. boot times are even about the same as they were before. SSDlife Free can't really get much info about the drive, wich is not cool either. however, I will say not a bad drive for my first SSD. I am thinking this is just a lower end quality drive.

My Crucial m4 is lightnight fast, but the cheaper v4 version runs much slower than the old magnetic drives it replaced.
A quick google search of slow Crucial v4 shows that hundreds of others are having the same issue. Skip this drive and purchase the m4 instead,

its a low level SSD, works as it should, I use it for backup so speed really isnt an issue for me. However I would not use it for a main drive as I dont see it performing any faster then my old spinning hdd
