Crucial M4 CT128M4SSD3 128GB Mini-SATA (mSATA) MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

  • 128GB
  • Mini-SATA (mSATA)
ICON Loading...

The Crucial m4 mSATA SSD delivers all of the award-winning performance and reliability of the Crucial m4 SSD – in a drive that’s an eighth of the size. It enables blazing fast system boot up and program launch on mSATA equipped desktop or laptop computers.

  • newegg Award-winning performance. Tiny form factor. Measuring in at about one-third the size of a standard business card (3cm x 5cm), the Crucial m4 mSATA is designed primarily for ultrathin laptop users who want to dramatically increase their system's performance. Featuring the same advanced controller technology, Micron custom firmware and high-speed synchronous MLC NAND that have made the Crucial m4 SSD a mainstay on the market, the Crucial m4 mSATA SSD is engineered to deliver the same blazing-fast performance as the award-winning 2.5-inch SSD – in a smaller mSATA form factor.
  • newegg Ultrathin form factor means flexibility. Because of its tiny mSATA form factor, the Crucial m4 mSATA SSD can do things that hard drives and other SSDs often can't. With the Crucial m4 mSATA SSD, save valuable system space by mounting it directly to the mSATA socket on your motherboard – and free up a hard drive bay in the process. Or just keep your existing hard drive and use the Crucial m4 mSATA SSD as a cache to accelerate the system's performance. Validated for Intel Smart Response Technology and NVELO Dataplex caching software, it's designed to work as a cache or as a standalone SSD for ultrathin laptops. No matter how you use the Crucial m4 mSATA SSD, experience high-performance storage in a tiny, low-power package.
  • newegg Consistently fast speeds. No exceptions and no fine print. There's a reason that Crucial SSDs have garnered numerous international awards – they do what they're supposed to do. No matter what kind of files you're working with on a Crucial SSD, you'll experience high speeds with no drop in performance. Unlike other SSDs on the market, Crucial SSDs treat all files the same, regardless of whether they're compressed or uncompressed. This is important because the files most people use everyday – videos, mp3s, advanced graphics files and zip files – are compressed files and thus unable to be compressed any further. While many SSDs on the market achieve faster speeds by using file compression, many of the most common file types can't be compressed, resulting in SSDs that often deliver drastically slower speeds than originally advertised. With the advanced technology of a Crucial SSD, however, the advertised speeds are tied to real world use.
  • newegg Crucial - quality you can depend on. Crucial is a trusted name when it comes to SSDs, and that's no coincidence. As a brand of Micron, one of the world's leading manufacturers of SSDs, Crucial engineers work tirelessly to design, refine, and support a powerful line of SSDs.

5 out of 5 eggsLove my Lenovo now

Pros: Fantastic reduction in boot time. added to Lenovo Y580.

Cons: Rated slower than others in write speed. Not a noticeable issue for me.

Other Thoughts: EaseUS was able to clone OS from original harddrive once I reduced partition sizes. Win 8 had several partitions which all had to move for successful clone.

5 out of 5 eggsTurbocharge your laptop

Pros: Speed, speed, speed.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: When installing in a HP Elitebook 8570w, the BIOS does not have an option to boot first from the mSATA SSD. The workaround is simple though: take the HDD out of your laptop and image your mSATA SSD with the OS. Next, temporarly install the HDD in an external enclosure and then using Computer->Manage->Disk Management delete the partition (which was "bootable") and then reallocate and format. You can now install the disk back into it's bay in your laptop. The BIOS will attempt to boot from the HDD, see that there is no bootable partition, and then go looking other places (like your mSATA SSD) for an operating system. Problem solved.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat little cache drive

Pros: Bought this for use as a cache drive for my Drobo mini. Works as advertised. It's on the Drobo approved list since it DOES NOT use a Sandforce controller which is not supported on the Drobo Mini.

Cons: none

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect

Pros: Great Price
Good Reliability Reviews (I will report back if anything happens)
Easy Installation
Super Fast Windows 8 Boot Time

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Fits perfect in my Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD3H motherboard. Booted up first try then installed Windows 8 on it. Boots so incredibly fast, I smile every time I turn on my computer, and I no longer dread a reboot.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome SSD!

Pros: SUPER FAST!!! Installed this beside a 500gb HDD in my wife's Thinkpad T520 with an i7. Configured OS and Program Files on this SSD and profile data on the HDD, The laptop SCREAMS with this SSD, boot times are incredible, and WEI scores a 7.8 on disk

Cons: More expensive than other SSDs, but not so much a con, you get what you pay for.

Other Thoughts: More money than other SSDs, but I feel its worth it. I have owned Mushkin and Intel SSDs which are "supposed" to be faster than this one, however this one blows them out of the water in benchmarks and real world performance.

5 out of 5 eggsT420s boots is 10-20 sec

Pros: Put the mSATA into the Thinkpad T420s, securing it with a screw that came with the motherboard. Used Norton Ghost 15.0 to transfer the Windows 7 OS from the original hard drive to the mSATA drive. Crystal Disk Mark 3.0 ratings are: Seq R/W 266.9 / 175.7, 512k R/W 239.3 / 170.9 4k R/W 20.15 / 42.41, 4k QD32 R/W 187.0 / 154.5. Boots up and shuts down in 10-20 sec.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: On the T420s, it is much faster to boot up and shut down, than to put Windows 7 into sleep mode.
