Great for Hack's


Using in my Gigabyte Z77 Hackintosh.... Super fast Boot's in 3.7 sec cold boot, restore boot under 2

Worked for a week to boot direct from it and can't make it work... So have a 1 gig USB as my bootloader, and this work around is just fine

It was AWESOME... for 4 months...


I was using my laptop and suddenly noticed that I couldn't open any programs. About 5 minutes ago it had booted without a hitch and now it isn't even detected in the BIOS.

Never had a problem with it until now. It was blazing fast

It lasted a few months

Remarkable Drive.


It amazes me that there aren't more high end laptops with quality spacious SSD's like this.

Fastest drive I've ever seen, and mSata means I can keep using the 1tb platter drive for storage on my laptop. Absolutely love this drive

None. Would love for it to be cheaper, but that's true of everything

Will not boot


I am not sure if it is the ASUS EEE SLATE EP121 but I have the stock sandisk and it boots great 64GB. I just wanted 256GB instead of the standard 64GB.

With the ASUS EEE SLATE EP2121 it will not boot at all, sometimes it does then it does not. I worked with crucial support and even purchased another 256msata and the second one performed the same way. Crucial also RMA one of them and said they would...

Crucial CT256M4SSD3


To mirror what someone else wrote previously, do your homework before you buy. Configuring one of these as a boot drive is not difficult, but it will require you to make BIOS changes. I took the path of least resistance and just reinstalled windows on...

Not a bad price for an mSATA of this size. It comes with screws

died within hours


Will post a new review if the replacement works.

lots of memory, fast, inexpensive for the form factor and amount of storage

Died within hours. I removed and re-inserted and it booted again, then died again. The old drive (128GB) still works, so it's not the machine. The machine simply didn't recognize a drive was present when this was in it
