    News - Promo: Win one of ten 120GB Crucial M500 SSDs

    Our friends at Crucial have an interesting proposition for you. In an effort to learn more about its storage business, Crucial has reached out and asked the knowledgeable HEXUS readers to participate in an online survey about SSDs and memory - something that is right up your street.

    In return for your good will and expertise, Crucial is giving each and every participant a free £10 voucher to use on your next purchase of Ballistix memory or an SSD from Crucial.com. It's hard to argue against a free voucher, but the icing on the cake is that Crucial will also pick out the names of 10 lucky participants and gift them each an award-winning 120GB M500 SSD!

    What's not to like? All you have to do is complete the survey at this URL: http://hexus.net/glc/4F/

    Read more.

    Update: 19/02/2014

    This promotion is now closed. Crucial has emailed all participants with a unique coupon code that entitles them to £10 off Ballistix memory or SSDs at Crucial.com, with the code valid until February 28, 2014. If you entered the competition during the valid dates and completed the questionnaire but still haven't received a code, please phone 0800 013 0330 for assistance.

    Re: News - Promo: Win one of ten 120GB Crucial M500 SSDs

    there's an error in the survey. Q14 doesn't have a tick box for "other" and ignores anything you write in the text box forcing you to select another option.

    Also the way they have limited the options for ranking decision making in buying RAM is going to skew their results. The criteria don't really reflect the way I select/recommend RAM.

    45 quid for a 120GB SSD?! That's crazy good value. Can't really afford one but thinking about getting it!

    Re: News - Promo: Win one of ten 120GB Crucial M500 SSDs

    That is a mega cheap SSD, and I loved the M4, but the M500 does have an iffy reputation currently. Have FW updates sorted it? In need of a new drive to replace a quickly filled 64GB M4.

    Noticed that problem with question 14 too. Was going to select "Other" because I usually buy ECC memory which means there isn't a huge selection to choose from. I wrote my answer for Q14 in the text field for Q13 with a note.

    What's wrong with the M500? I just bought one that I will install in a budget laptop when it arrives, should I be worried?

    Not had them in to try, just heard a good number of negative stories about poor performance and reliability. I always prefer to do my own testing, and my prior experience with Crucial drives has been exceptional so it may be typical internet naysaying. I suspect with a fresh firmware and install that it'll be a cracking drive - I'll probably buy one tomorrow at this price.

    Have any of you received that voucher by mail? My inbox has been strangely void of any mail from Crucial, as has my spam folder.

    Really dumb survey but thanks for the opportunity to get £10 off. I've copied and pasted the code on the last page of survey.

    The 'other' category thing is the classic IT-illiterate marketing department mistake. Company i work for does it wrong all the time and we get the questions from irate customers in IT.
