[EDIT]: A second unit which I purchased for my notebook PC "died" under unexpits reliability.lained circumstances. I atempted several fixes, from resetting the drive to updating firmware - to no avail. As the unit in question was not subjected to abuse of any type, I suspect
This fits the bill, but after two drives, I'm going to have to give it one star.
I bought two versions of the drive. One as a kit with a USB 2.0 drive and Apricorn's cloning software. I ran it under Windows 7 and it was a breeze. It was only later that I realized there was an (unbundled/kit) version that had a usb 3.0 adapter.
Transfer and upgrade was a cinch. I did have a couple problems putting the drive in the 7mm slot. Something wasn't lining up right, and I only had this problem with the Crucial drive, not my original HD.
Speed was good, and I got used to it in the two days that I was working with it. Boot time was excellent.
One day, I went to turn on the machine, and I got an error that my system couldn't boot. After several attempts, including removing battery and power, it still wouldn't boot. The bios wouldn't recognize it. I had already done the firmware upgrades to bring it up to 010G, because I had heard of issues with previous firmware versions.
I removed the drive and used both the Apricorn cable, and other sata cables to try and read it, and it just would not be recognized as anything. I tried the same sata cables and used other sata hdd and they were recognized.
I returned it via Amazon, and ordered the same drive, but this time, separately, with a USB 3.0 kit this time.
Same sequence: installed, usb3.0 transfer went much faster, installed the system.
But having read some of the forums, I realized that the power had drained on my laptop, right before the problem. So I ran down the laptop to empty the battery. Then I encountered the same problem.
Went through the same process of testing other hdds, trying the SSD on a usb connector and other computers. Still, completely bricked.
Then, I read where one user "charged" it or let it sit under sata power for about 30 minutes, and it came back to life.
I did the same, and mine eventually came back.
But I'm too nervous to have that happen again, and I'm very wary if this will be the case with all SSD's. I also don't like the idea of having to remove the drive from your laptop, find another working system to "charge" your SSD back to life again. I'm going to try a different manufacturer
While I have not yet tried fully running down the battery with the SSD, based on the estimated battery runtime I have gained about 25%. I used to see 4 hours with a fully charged battery and a 7200rpm hard drive. Now I see 5+ hours estimated with the SSD when the machine starts up unplugged. And I am sure I can spend time tweaking the power settings to squeeze more life on a charge but I don't normally run for long stretches on battery. But now I supposed I could!
The Windows "Experience Index" that has a max score of 7.9 in each category now shows 7.9 for my primary hard disk transfer rate. I guess this is a good as it gets as far as Microsoft is concerned.
Is an SSD worth the cost: YES. Absolutely.
