I was on the fence on whether to upgrade my existing 180 SSD to this. I figure I'd give it a try.

Thumbs up on Crucial / Amazon sending me a unit that already had the latest firmware that was only released 7 days ago. This saved me a critical step that might not of gone so well in my setup. I apparently had challenges getting my usb dvd drive to "boot". Long story short, There really wasn't any documentation that came with the drive. Based on other reviewers I went to crucial's website fully planning to have to upgrade the firmware first.

I saw they posted a video on how to use the included transfer software. I was hoping to be able to use the software with a usb 3 cable adapter, but the software looks for the included usb 2 adapter. My system would not recognize the transfer software as a bootable media, not sure if it was the disk or the drive. I tried changing the bios boot priorities without success.
Crucial's video recommended you boot from the DVD not run it thru windows 7.

Well I took a chance after multiple failed attempts at using the cd as a boot media and ran the software via my windows 7 session. Worked like a charm, no issues, took about 45 minutes once the process was started. I had about 45 GB free space out of 180 GB.

I'm use to having to re-activate software licenses even after a cloning process. So far I haven't had to re-activate a single license. This includes: MS Office 2013, Lightroom 4, Viso 2013, Project 2013, Proshow Producer Pro 5, Snagit 11, Camtasia 8, Omnipage 18 Pro, PDF Converter 8 and a whole bunch more.

Only time will tell how reliable this drive is, but the install process once started was a breeze. Wish it had a USB 3 transfer cable, but even with a USB 2, took less than 1 hour. Some said there's a USB 3 kit, but this one didn't have that as an option. Note I was transfering from an existing SSD to another SSD. Just needed a larger SSD.

I needed a slim drive for my Dell Inspiron Duo convertible and this drive fit perfectly into the existing enclosure. Software from Apricorn(sp?) that was provided with it transferred the old drive contents to the new on and it booted up first try.
Delivered quick.

Installation was extremely easy. on Lenovo T420S

Supplied transfer kit and software were incredibly easy to use.
I did have some trouble trying to boot off the cd, was a good thing that method was not necessary

Performed transfer from windows desktop,

Transfer was relatively quick, although I wish I had known there was a USB 3.0 Transfer kit available, just doesn't come with this bundle.

Downloaded and updated firmware per the suggestion of everyone, everywhere.

After transfer, drive worked fine for a few days.

After a few days of good, normal operation, computer wouldn't boot. Wasn't recognizing drive. Put in old/previous standard 7200 drive, and it worked/booted.... Put back in Crucial SSD, still not even being identified.

Booted of 7200, and SSD drive could not be read via a usb drive connector, including the one that came with the bundle. Tried on different computer. All show nothing. It's dead.

Submitted for a return from Amazon. Trying an identical SSD from Crucial see if it was just a bad unit, or a problem with the model. If the latter, will look at extra money for Samsung or Intel

Although the drive that I received came with an out of date firmware, this is easily correctable on modern OSs (and a tad bit more work if you are using Windows XP like I am). Aside from that the drive has been stable, perfectly silent (as expected since there are no longer any moving parts there), and has given a 5-year-old laptop a new lease on life. Whereas I was previously looking to buy a new laptop, this has reinvigorated the system and given it more time in service. And I now have more drive space as the previous drive was dinky. Battery life has been improved thanks to the Crucial drive running cool and not having moving parts; so the system as a whole runs cooler than it has ever before. The fan used to constantly wail and was annoying, now it rarely comes on. Swapping out the old hard disk drive for this SSD has improved things in ways I would not have suspected.

Bought this ssd drive last week with the cloning software. Software cloned hard drive without mishap including the recovery partition. Did not need to boot from CD, was able to clone the HD right from the desktop. Installed drive without problems on Lenovo T420s; excellent videos showing how to on Utube. New drive is super fast, able to access programs much faster than old HD even though it was 7200 rpm. Boot time is also faster. Found no compatibility issues, all programs opened without a hitch. Totally happy with the entire process. Updated firmware without issue.

Other reviews hit on the technical aspects of this product. It truly is as good as others have said. Easiest install of a new mass storage drive I've experienced. My HDD was cloned to this SSD easily in about 6 hours and posted up on the first try.

If you can afford it, I'd suggest getting the 512 Gig version as the 256 fills up quickly. I took a lot of archival data off and stored it on our portable HDD, so we have some life left for additional software or a second OS.
