Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Price

Price:
"It also drastically increased program opening speeds (if the programs were installed to this hard drive)It ain't inexpensive, but I am very happy with it so far."
_
"I can't recommend this product more, especially at this price when compared to buying locally in Australia."
_
"The only downside I can think of is the relatively steep capacity to price ratio."
_
"One solution is to do a clean install, but I ended up purchasing the Paragon Alignment Tool which cost money but made quick work of the problem."
_
"Only drawback is the price."
_
"Great price value and performance (while it worked).However this drive had a critical failure after only 3 months."
_
"This particular SDD offers the best price performance reliability I've been able to find."
_
"I recommend this drive to anyone looking for raw performance at a good price!"
_
"Despite being a second generation SSD, the C300 takes advantage of the SATA3 interface, making it a good combination of price and performance without breaking the bank on the more recent C400 m4, or OCZ Vertex 3 and Intel 510 drives."
_
"Pros-Applications launch instantly-Game load times are greatly reduced-Price versus other SSDs-SATA 3 support for faster read speeds over SATA 2 drivesCons-Overall SSD price is still high (especially since this cost more then my CPU)-No 3.5 bracket converter-Some users have reported firmware issues with the C300 causing stutteringThe Crucial drive is a great combination of price and performance for someone looking into getting an SSD without the ridiculous price, and 128 GB is a good size for your OS, Apps, and a few Games without having to worry too much about drive space management."

Speed

Speed:
"Great price value and performance (while it worked).However this drive had a critical failure after only 3 months."
_
"Programs open fast, but take forever to completely load (especially Windows Live Mail (POP3)).Doing folder file copy backups to from WD Black 32mb slave drive is painfully Slow."
_
"I had a 1st gen ssd from ocz and I stopped using it a month after purchase because the write speeds back then were just horrible."
_
"The HP is only SATA 2 (3GB s), but you're only missing out on a little bit more sequential read performance."
_
"Good, fast SSD."
_
"While it did a great job at being fast and very reliable (very key to me) I soon regretted not getting a larger size."
_
"Of course a SSD is nice and fast when it's first installed, but this one doesn't seem to age well."
_
"Great price value and performance (while it worked).However this drive had a critical failure after only 3 months."
_
"Great SSD...fast read and write speeds really improve Windows 7 performance."

Windows

Windows:
"My only complaint is with Windows 7 backup and restore from an image - it is way more complicated to successfully make a clone of a disk than it should be, but that is not the hard drive's fault!"
_
"If installed in SATA III mode, if TRIM functionality is enabled in the BIOS and the OS and if you run AutoTweak can be achieved easily a 7.9 on the Windows Experience Index."
_
"The recovery utility worked great and Windows booted without complaint."
_
"Windows was not going to wake up happy because the partitions on the SSD were in a different order than when Windows was backed up."
_
"Good C300, wouldn't mind it being a lil cheaper($250 or $300 at the time)Fast, reliable so far, high windows index rating! "
