This review relates to the 128GB version but according to internet forums all C300 devices are affected by the issues below. I've had this SSD for about a month and in the first instance was blown away by the speed. Windows 7 boots in about 15 seconds. Installation of software speed also amazing. Disk benchmark software showing confimed reads of around 355MB/s and writes of 145MB/Sec.

However, over the last 2 weeks or so my machine (which is also only a month old I7 2600K, 8GB RAM, Windows 7 64bit, ASUS P8P67-M-PRO MB with SATA 6GB/s) has been hanging for around 30 seconds to a minute, with increasing frequency... The event log shows that the "iastor device0 took longer than expected to respond". According to posts at several forums, there is an incompatibility / issue with the Intel Rapid Storage driver under AHCI. Removing it and allowing windows to install the standard Microsoft AHCI driver has removed the lock up issue, but has also had the effect of reducing speed to around 265MB/s and 125MB/s for Reads / writes respectively.

Although these drives have been around for a while now, crucial don't seem to either be acknowledging the issue, or presenting any options for resolution. Intel continue to release updates to their chipset drivers but even with the newest installed, there is no difference. According to the forums, the issue does take a few weeks of use to show itself, so if you do buy one of these, take care to follow the instructions and advice such as:-

* These are perfect for improving laptop / netbook general performance - On most laptops only memory and the disk are upgradeable. The disk is normally the area having most impact on file operation performance of course.

I bought this to go into a new build using an ASUS P6X58D-E motherboard and an Intel i7-950 Quad-Core Processor) and couple of Sharkon fans. Add to that a Coolermaster Silent Pro 700W Modular PSU and I have to check to see if it's turned on, it's so quiet. As a system disk this beauty is FAST, my PC now boots up from pressing the switch to using the internet in approx 30 seconds. Windows experience index is the max 7.9 for this monster, I think Microsoft will need to increase the max sore to cater for it. I will definitely be getting another of these for my next new build

The truth is, if you go SSD - you will never go back! Some helpful suggestions may be: if you have a data drive (in addition to your ssd) it is a good idea to put your paging file on there. If you can minimise the number of writes to the drive, you will extend its working life considerably, so the best idea is to install your software on the drive and put data elsewhere. It is a good idea to do a fresh installation of your chosen OS, as many modern operating systems are able to recognise SSD drives and optimise accordingly. As with all drives, some people will experience failures, so make sure you backup important data. Sit back and enjoy the most considerable performance improvement you can treat your pc or mac to.

I have a Macbook White (Mid 2010) and i've made an upgrade with this Crucial C300 SSD 128GB. This was an amazing upgrade, and now my Macbook is much faster. The only problem is the limited capacity of 128GB (i use an external hard drive for storage). Anyway i think this SSD is really amazing and i'm very happy with my purchase. Buy it!! If can spend a little more so strike the Crucial wit 258GB of capacity.

I installed it in my Santa Rosa 2,2 GHz MacBook Pro and put the internal 500GB drive in the optical bay drive with a cheapo Chinese adapter. The SSD hosts my system, programs and the Aperture libaray, the hard disk all other files.

Now this machine starts up in half the time, and Aperture flies compared with my old setup. Best upgrade for a given amount of money!

I bought this drive as a replacement after my super speedy mechanical 500GB HDD left me unexpectedly towards support centre to solve bad sector problems. After that I no longer felt safe using a laptop unless it was fully static and in a solid desk. The move to an SSD was unavoidable for full peace of mind. After a few hours of forums, reviews and the essential tomshardware visit, Crucial was the obvious choice but one question still remained...size. Please remember that I came from a 500GB HDD where I struggled to fit all my data. I soon understood that carrying all my digital life with me was no longer possible without a spending a lot of money. I learned that in order to move to an SSD a new file management strategy was to be adopted. My whole digital photo collection and videos were to stay at home. If I really want to carry them on my laptop I just copy reduced resolution versions (1 MegaPixel) which is enough for fast preview on the move.
Returning to the SSD size selection. 256GB is too expensive, 64GB is too small and much slower that the bigger versions...128GB is the sweet spot. Moving from a 500GB to a 128GB obviously forced me to buy an external hard drive for home storage (in my case I went for a 2.5in 1TB USB3.0) and to introduce an improved backup strategy. This would be a nice idea for Amazon to explore (a bundle of an SDD + huge HDD for home storage).

After the OS installation the speed improvements were far beyond the booting time.
Everyone knows that booting times are significantly reduced and that does not surprise new buyers anymore.
As a Dropbox user with 25000 files to be checked at startup my previous hard drive would require from 30 to 60 seconds before letting me open a browser or any other thing without struggling.
