Great SSD


Work right out of the gate! Fast and reliable

None so far

No firmware for new AM3+ motherboard


My next SSD will not be a Cruical. If this unsupported drive was years old, it would be one thing. I've had it a year! Come on Crucial, get off your derrieres and write some new firmware for this drive.

Was a good solid drive on my old motherboard. Had good speeds

I bought a new AM3+ mother board that has only SATA 6Gb ports. The firmware on this purported 6Gb hard drive instructs you to use only SATA 3Gb for installing the firmware. That would be a good plan....except I didn't buy a M/B with 3Gb and 6Gb SATA....

Crucial did give me a hassle free customer service so while I can't vouch for the product at this time they deserve some positive recognition for service.

Was crazy fast when it worked

It destabilized on me and bios & firmware updating didn't help. Called Crucial and they're RMAing it. I'm hopeful that the new one will work properly, but in the mean time I'll have to reinstall my OS, Adobe and other programs. You also have to fiddle...

Fast and Reliable


Great speed and easy installation. I'm running this as my primary boot drive. Windows starts up fast, software installations are fast, and I haven't had a hiccup yet

Price tag is still high

Pretty Awesome


Use one of these suckers as your boot disk if you've got the money to spare.

This was my first SSD, and I almost didn't get it while I was building my PC last year. I'm certainly glad I did. While I don't have much experience with solid state drives yet, my first one has proven to reinforce my confidence in these types of hard...

Aside from the common complaint concerning cost and capacity (yay unintended alliteration), I think you are still getting what you pay for

Slick as a Babys Bottom


Using Diskeeper allowed me to gain an additional 5GB of drive space after 3 months of use. This program cleans up the unused sectors that have worthless information; therefore, it saves the drive from having to write over this info to use the space...

Hitting a stable 350mb/s with Marvell 6gb/s controller on ASUS Rampage III Formula board. The Marvell controller on this drive matches perfectly with the Marvell controller on the motherboard. Using Diskeeper to Optimize this SSD about every 2 months...

Installation of Windows 7 is a Bi-Polar experience. You must set overall BIOS to IDE first, then select ACHI in the Marvell 6gb/s section of the BIOS, then you are good-to-go with the installation of Windows 7 and this Crucial C300 drive

Cold boot to ready in 40 secs!


With program sizes growing and game installs getting larger every day I would not get anything smaller than a 128GB SSD. After you install Win7 x64, Office, and a few games you will be VERY close to filling up a 64GB SSD. From what I've read you want...

Very quick. If you're on the fence about an SSD you WILL NOT REGRET IT! Do yourself a favor and click "Add to cart" right now

Does NOT come with a mounting bracket to fit in your desktop hard drive bay. This was really disappointing, but my old fault for not realizing it ; Had problems with the 6GB/s Marvell controller on my ASUS motherboard. Since I switched to the 3GB/s...

The M-4 is a thought over this

Crucial RealSSD C300 CTFDDAC128MAG-1G1 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)


SSD's are expensive. I'd try and wait for a good deal before getting them.

I have two of these operating in a RAID0. Works great! I haven't really noticed that much of an increase in boot time (Used to have a 120GB Raptor Drive) but everything seems to fly in Windows. Heck Windows 7 installed pretty quickly too

None as of yet

Consumer review by:



I put this in a two year old laptop and I saw the big difference in boot times and overall performance, great thing is I can use this for many years to come in future laptops or desktops.

Fast, stable, and worth the upgrade

None as for now
