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.Read more ›
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.
