The best just got better. Continuing the tradition of Crucial's award-winning solid-state drives, the m4 offers mobile and desktop users scorching-fast read and write speeds, groundbreaking SATA SSD computing, and unparalleled performance for the dollar. High-speed synchronous MLC NAND, advanced Marvell controller technology, optimized NAND management and the SATA 6Gb/s interface together dramatically improve data transfers for bandwidth-demanding applications. Plus, Crucial's products are built on Micron's decades of design and manufacturing expertise. It is their expertise in NAND technology that enables them to optimize the performance and endurance necessary to build quality solid-state storage devices.

As with all solid-state drives, Crucial M4 contains no moving parts and therefore uses less power than a typical hard drive and runs quietly. Utilizing standard 2.5" hard drive dimensions for most notebooks, the SSD can also be installed into a 3.5" drive bay in desktop systems with the included 3.5" adapter bracket.

4 out of 5 eggsrandom boot screen freezes

Pros: I have this as my boot drive along side a 1.5 tb HDD. This drive allows my computer to boot in less than half the time of my 3 gbps HDD.

Cons: I get random boot failures, the boot screen will freeze as the windows logo is coming up. Usually doesn't happen more than 2-3 times in a row.

3 out of 5 eggsAfter 18 months, firmware bug made me pull it

Pros: Good value, worked reasonably well until firmware bug cropped up 1 wk ago

Cons: Firmware bug (Crucial has posted an update)

Other Thoughts: May be Window's fault but some incompatibility between the latest version of microsoft NET software and the firmware on this drive caused the PC to shut down after almost exactly 1 hour every time. Google Crucial M4 PC crash 1 hour and you will see plenty of hits. Crucial has released a firmware update but what a PITA and hard to troubleshoot until you realize the 1 hour consistency. I assume that new drives have the new firmware but you might want to check before this crops up.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome SSD

Pros: Very fast and reliable. Comes with mounting bracket and cable.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I've been using it for 14 months now and it's as fast as day one. Will buy a second one when they go cheaper.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks perfect.

Pros: Works great so far!
Very fast drive quicker then Vertex 3 ive done client builds with.
Boot time from On button to win7 is 14-15sec. Very impressive my Vertex 3 drives never did it that quick.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Another reason im going to support Crucial from now on is they are actually a Idaho company (Micron). Works great so far but should it fail ill report back with that info.

I see alot of people complaining about failures or formatting. You SHOULD expect to have to format every drive you buy new, Windows 7 these days has the option to do this in install process so thats not hard. Also get Diskeeper to maintain SSD's like they should be. Dont defragment SSD's like you would Spin drive, Also check google on what settings should be enabled in windows when running SSD's - I dont run sleep or hibernate on my computers its not good for ssd's.

5 out of 5 eggs1 year, no issues

Pros: No failures since day 1

Cons: None to report

Other Thoughts: I use this as an SSD cache. Yes, it is large for this, but I wasn't sure if I would want it as another drive instead. I wanted a bigger one in case I changed my mind.

I don't know how it compares to other drives on the benchmarks, but it hasn't crapped out yet. I'm happy with it.

1 out of 5 eggsFailed within months

Pros: Worked fast while it lasted.

Cons: Failed like a brick in less than a year.

Other Thoughts: This is the 3rd Crucial M4 SSD that has failed on me. I've used them ini three different machines - one laptop and two different desktops. I'm back to mechanical hard drives until SSD's prove themselves.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic Complimentary Hard Drive

Pros: Works really well. I use it to host my OS and it takes the drag out of Windows. Particularly upon start up and shut down.

Cons: Prices went down on SSD's, but at a certain capacity level the price is still to high. So I would say that the price would be the major negative.

Other Thoughts: Great complimentary drive for hosting the OS, if you want it to be your primary drive I would go bigger (500GB+).

5 out of 5 eggsFAST FAST FAST

Pros: All I have to say is this thing is fast. I waited to build my first computer until the Dell from 2006 died. Lucky for me, it finally died. My brother, an IT person talked me into splurging on the SSD for my boot drive and I am glad that I did. Unless I use the direct key on my MOBO, there is no getting into the BIOS before windows boots. I keep as little on this drive as possible and load most everything on my WD Caviar Black 1TB drive. The price/performance was incredible considering I got the M4 on sale. I hope I get a couple of good years out of this drive.

Cons: Wish I would have bought 2 at this price.

Other Thoughts: None

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome!

Pros: Super fast! Want more of these! 10 seconds into Win 7 past password! 30 seconds from cold boot (Including typing password)

Cons: Can't update firmware on my computer due to UEFI Bios. I am planning to take it out and flash firmware on an older MB. SSD must be installed label down, which is a bit annoying, but not really a con.

Other Thoughts: This model comes with the 2.5" drive adapter which I didn't need.
