I'm in IT- I replace drives and reinstall operating systems all the time. I've been a fan of Crucial for awhile, and I still like the M4 drives that I am currently using. That being said, the V4 is garbage. I purchased three of these to do some upgrades for clients and every one of them is worthless. Literally every single PC, Laptop and Netbook I tried each of the drives in ran slower with the V4 in it than with the regular Hard Drive, even after doing secure erase formats and clean installs.

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.

***LAST UPDATE***

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.

**ORIGINAL TEXT**
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.

This item was very slow and performed mediocre compared to a standard sata drive. what was most distrubing is that it crashed and had to be reloaded 3 times within the same week. Send this back for refund and definately would not buy this model again.

I got HDD Crucial V4 in october. Since than it failed once in 2 weeks but I could install system again and was working for another 3 weeks and than failed for good, I couldn't do anything. Unfortunately that was Christmas time and I went for over a month to see family in europe. When I was back I found out that my return time expired so I stuck with piece of trash.
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.

I should have listened to the other reviews. This drive installs easily and does exactly what you want it to do. EXCEPT, it is as slow or even slightly slower than the HDD I replaced it with. I needed a replacement for a laptop that has blown out two HDD's in two years because it gets knocked around so much while it's running. For that, I'm sure this drive will completely fit the bill. However, don't expect SSD speeds from it.

I bought this drive in August 2012. It installed easily and ran fine for a few weeks and then started having booting problems. Diagnosis showed a number of bad data blocks had developed scattered all over the SSD. I restored the drive and tried again. I called Crucial tech Support and they were no help. On the fourth rebuild in 5 months, I gave up and sent it back. I do not recommend this drive. My use was in a constant temp environment with UPS power and with a brand new computer that works fine on a regular HD. There was something wrong with this drive from the start. This was my first adventure with SS drives.

This thing sucks. Wanted to get it to just put an OS on and boot quickly. Read the other reviews. It gets so slow. Not exactly sure if it's anything to do with write or read speed but don't waste your time returning this -- just buy a more expensive SSD.

Purchased this to run Windows only. I have a larger hard drive for files/storage. This thing made my computer run so much faster its insane. It boots up to Windows 7/8.1 SO much faster than my non SSD hard drive. I'm at the login screen in less than 20 seconds. Highly recommended!!
