Hey all,

I have a G74-TH71 and am wanting to purchase this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=20-148-442&SortField=0&SummaryType=0&Pagesize=10&PurchaseMark=&SelectedRating=1&VideoOnlyMark=False&VendorMark=&IsFeedbackTab=true&Keywords=%28keywords%29&Page=2#scrollFullInfo

After reading, it appears that the Crucial M4 has issues *along with other ssds* with Sandy Bridge chipsets. Has anyone used this hard drive with their Asus Sandy Bridge laptops? I'm nervous to buy this and experience the BSODs, freezing etc that others have.

Thanks

I've been using another Crucial SATA 3 SSD in our G74 since we got it, and never had any BSODs or similar problems with it.

The Primary Drive of my G74 is a Crucial M4 128 GB SATA 3 (Firmware 0009).
From the start of using it, it's been working quite well, and I didn't have any
of the issues mentioned on that customer review you linked.
