The latest 24nm synchronous MLC NAND flash modules with Toggle mode support from Toshiba further enhance product reliability. The DDR3 DRAM cache transfers data faster and helps extend lifetime of the product. The drive’s constantly high performance and True Speed-based stability result in outstanding real-world performance releasing the full potential of your notebook.
  • newegg A Superior PC Experience In addition to enhanced performance, the M3 Pro SSD promotes cooler, quieter, and more energy efficient conditions compared to traditional mechanical hard drives. With no moving parts, SSDs provide peace of mind with their superior durability and reliability.
  • newegg Trim Support The M3 Pro SSD offers TRIM support than can be enabled in Windows 7. Designed to maintain the performance of SSD at an optimal level over the lifetime of the drive, TRIM functions by actively deleting invalid data from the SSD’s memory cells to ensure that write operations perform at full speed. Since a memory block must be erased before it can be re-programmed, TRIM improves performance by pro-actively erasing pages containing invalid data, allowing the SSD to write new data without first having to perform a time-consuming erase command.
  • newegg 2.5" to 3.5" Bracket Included The M3 Pro SSD is specifically designed for notebook computers coming in a 2.5-inch hard drive form factor. In addition, the installation kit includes a 2.5" to 3.5" bracket for matching with 3.5” drive bay to extend the storage of your desktop computer.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing drive

Pros: - super fast
- excellent bundled transfer software
- reliable so far
- 5 year warranty

Cons: - capacity
- price

Other Thoughts: Amazing little drive. I plugged it into my computer and ran the included software to transfer my existing windows installation over. It only took an hour or two. Unplugged my old drive and bam, works like a charm. From what I can tell it's the fastest 512 GB capacity SATA III drive out there so far and it definitely feels like it.

I was only using about 300 - 350 gigs on my old drive when I transferred over to this one and I'm using about 400 now for everything so it's not for those who have a lot of stuff. I've found myself doing a bit of cleanup to keep my free space over about 90 gigs just to be safe. If things get out of hand I might even look at getting a second one to use as a raid array but we'll see.

Overall, best investment I've ever made. Windows loads in about 15 seconds, games load in about half the time, and file transfers even over the LAN are faster. Highly recommend to anyone who's considering buying an SSD to replace their HDD.
