This review is from: Crucial M500 CT480M500SSD3 480GB Mini-SATA (mSATA) MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: small, low power, fast

Cons: None that I can find

Other Thoughts: I got one of these when I started doing some very disk intensive analysis work on my laptop. The improvement was amazing, and I immediately went from being disk limited to being processor limited. Perhaps the biggest improvement is that it now only takes a few seconds to start up or shut down the laptop. That is huge given the number of software updates we have to put up with each week.

It did not come with any installation software, so I used my imaging software (Acronis) to simply make a disk image, then rebuilt the SSD from the old image. Worked like a champ. The caveat here is that the disks were exactly the same size--went from a 500 GB WD mechanical to the 500 GB Crucial M500. There may be some other twist if you go to a smaller SSD from a larger hard drive.

Tip: buy the one that already comes sized for a hard drive slot. This is a mini SATA card--tiny, but it will cost you another $15 or so for an adapter. Should be the same price.

5 out of 5 eggsSmall and Fast

This review is from: Crucial M500 CT480M500SSD3 480GB Mini-SATA (mSATA) MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Drives like this are what the mSATA interface has been waiting for. As much capacity and just as fast as mainstream 2.5" SSDs and less expensive than most of them. This gives mini-ITX boards with mSATA ports a big advantage.

Cons: The screws that hold mSATA drives down are tiny. The way mSATA slots work I suggest inserting the card, putting the screw(s) in the hole(s), then push it down and turn the screws. This isn't a problem with this part, so it does not affect its rating.

Other Thoughts: These really are small. You can't tell from the picture, but they are as wide as a standard memory stick is tall.
