I've pretty much the same hardware set-up as you (Crucial 512GB m4, 16GB of RAM, etc.) and have experienced no problems. I suspect that your problem lies either with the installation of OS X that you have running or, possibly, a failure of the SSD.


Assuming that you have the latest firmware for the SSD, I would first try reinstallling OS X by booting to your Recovery partition (command and R keys held down whilst booting) and see if that remedies the problem. If not, I would call Crucial and let them know that you MAY HAVE a malfunctioning drive.


Good luck,

Hi marlon j,


If you are seeing your applications freeze, I would recommend trying the steps in this article:


OS X Mountain Lion: If an app freezes



I would especially check out the last 3 steps, including repairing the disk.  For more information on that, see this article:


Using Disk Utility to verify or repair disks



Repairing disk permissions is another good idea:


Disk Utility 12.x: Repair disk permissions



That article also applies to Mountain Lion.
