Product Description

Substantial performance. Substantial value. If you bought a computer before 2011, chances are good that your system was designed for mainstream SATA 3Gb/s bandwidth— and the Crucial® v4 SSD may be the perfect fit. Featuring all the benefits and quality that users have come to expect from Crucial SSDs over traditional hard drives, the Crucial v4 SSD empowers mainstream systems to deliver faster start-up times, faster data transfer speeds, and increased durability—all at a lower price than most high-bandwidth SSDs. Since most SSDs on the market outperform the bandwidth capabilities of most computers (SATA 3Gb/s), the Crucial v4 SSD is designed to complement the abilities of mainstream systems. Why pay for extra performance you can’t use?

The right drive. For users who purchased their system before 2011 and are looking for an SSD, the Crucial® v4 SSD may be the perfect fit. Designed to deliver substantial SSD performance for mainstream computers (SATA 3Gb/s bandwidth), the Crucial v4 SSD was created to complement the abilities of mainstream systems. Since most SSDs on the market are designed for systems with high bandwidth capabilities (SATA 6Gb/s), their marketed performance levels can’t be achieved on most laptops and desktops (SATA 3Gb/s).

The right price. Designed to complement mainstream systems, the Crucial v4 SSD saves system owners money while maintaining a high level of SSD performance. Since the Crucial v4 SSD doesn’t include pricey features that cater to advanced-bandwidth systems, Crucial is able to offer a high-quality product at an affordable price.

The right performance. Why pay for performance you can’t use? The Crucial v4 SSD delivers what users have come to expect from Crucial SSDs—faster read/write speeds, faster boot times, faster application loading times, and increased reliability when compared to standard hard drives. With the Crucial v4 SSD, experience innovative features in a design that has been fine-tuned for standard computer systems with SATA 3Gb/s bandwidth capability. For mainstream system owners who are looking to make computer work faster and easier, the solution is simple. Get powerful SSD performance at an affordable price.

Crucial®—quality you can depend on. Crucial is a trusted name when it comes to SSDs, and that’s no coincidence. As a brand of Micron, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of SSDs, Crucial engineers work tirelessly to design, refine, and support a powerful line of SSDs—all the way down to the NAND component. From the award-winning Crucial m4 SSD to the new Crucial Adrenaline Solid State Cache Solution, Crucial solid state technology continues to innovate without sacrificing what has made it great: high-quality designs backed by outstanding customer service

    I have had the same negative experience with this drive (in fact, two of them) as most of the other reviewers here. I bought mine direct from Crucial, so am not one of the 'Verified Amazon Purchase(rs)", but what follows is an honest appraisal of this drive for the benefit of anyone thinking of purchasing it. My only recommendation is that you don't buy the Crucial V4 drive.

    On my laptop (Sony Vaio, 2 GHz, 2 GB RAM) this device has slowed my machine to a crawl -- directories take 30 secs to open, property dialogue boxes can take minutes to open, few-Mb Photoshop files are likewise, and in all cases the stuttering and pauses enforced by the drive freeze the laptop and make it inoperable. Whilst all this is happening, my Task Manger (if I can get it to start at all while the Crucial is churning away) shows that my processor and RAM usage are only in the few percent and few 10s of Mb, so the problem is clearly one of throughput.

    I can't say how much this 'upgrade' has affected my productivity, and because SSDs and HDDs are almost never the same size I cannot simply return to my HDD, the SSD being larger (128 Gb vs the 80 Gb of my HDD) and as we know a larger drive cannot be re-imaged back to a smaller drive, so I am stuck with it. Neither do I fancy having to un-4k my drive to return to a spinning-platter set-up again (see later description of sector alignment). For anyone already using one of these devices, there are a number of steps you can take to alleviate the mediocrity of this device, but they don't help much. The first thing to know is that the imaging software does not 4K sector-write by default (which it should do for all SSDs).

    Style Name: 256GB V4 9mm Verified Purchase
    I bought this solid state disk in order to replace a sata2, 320gb, 5400rpm in a toshiba laptop. Windows installation was quite easy by cloning the old disk on the ssd. After windows boot up, I performed some tweaks easily found on the net in order to enhance Win7 operation with an ssd disk. Laptop operation is greatly enhanced: windows boot up time is reduced by at least 30% and programs start very fast. Windows performance index for the disk transfer rate is now inceased to 6.7 compared to 5.6 with the old disk. Regarding life time, ssd disks live in general less than the traditional ones, but I'll see this in practice... Overall I am very happy with purchase.

    Update December 5, 2012:
    After four weeks of use, I have now a clear idea of the performance of the drive. Actually, although the comments of my first review are still valid, this drive presents a significant problem: when there are disk using processes running in the background (windows update, avg update, unzip a big file etc...) disk usage seems to be 100% and computer almost freezes for several seconds. During this time window, I can still move the mouse but computer is not responsive to any other action. This is very annoying and it can last from several seconds up to one minute or more, depending on the background process. In addition, unzipping some large files in the foreground even if nothing runs in the background, takes ages...
    First thought was that my problem is related to my configuration and I started looking for a solution on the net. I then found a lot of people posting in forums (principally in Crucial users forums ) who have exactly the same problem, with the same drive but with completely different configurations. Several posts attribute the problem to the poor write performance of small files.

    UPDATE

    Within a month id gone from a snappy machine to one exhibiting delays and beachballing. My reboot time had gone from <3 minutes on my old hard drive to less than 1 minute and within the month was taking 9 minutes to boot into a responsive state and load 1 page on safari. - 3 times longer than a hard drive

    Crucial swapped it out and 2 weeks later i have the same issue again - laggy performance and approximately 9 mins booting into a responsive state

    Crucial have offered to swap it again - i'm torn between giving it another go or returning it to the reseller for a refund

    Did i get 2 from the same bad batch or is the drive really not compatible with the early 2008 mac book pro like they say it is ?

    2nd update - same problem with the third SSD - I am now back using a hard drive. Amazon were excellent in refunding my money.

    I would like to point out that I did both clean installs of mountain lion in 2 cases and a clone of a problem free instalation in the third. There is (at least) some issues with this SSD model and a combination of of an early 2008 macbook pro running mountain lion . I'd avoid it like the plague if thats your set up. I cannot speak to its suitability with other macbook pros and other versions of the OS.

    As you can see from my original review below, I was very impressed initially An SSD can make a huge difference

    ORIGINAL REVIEW

    Can't believe the difference this made to my old ( early 2008) macbook pro

    I already had 4 gigs of ram and a 7200rpm drive but whether the old drive was on its way out or my system was full of digital cruft, i don't know. Either way the machine was slow and was feeling its age.
