very impressed!! 01/03/2012
This review is from: Crucial M4 2.5" 64GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) CT064M4SSD2
after a few follies installing this on old motherboard Asus p5q pro turbo). I got it up and running and was surprised at the difference this makes compared to spin drives. Games like Arma 2 CO run very smooth even at low FPS....sometimes around 16fps with alot of AI. And all other apps run much much more quickly. My boot time is around 15 seconds with 39 processes running on startup.
none.... so far
Be fore warned your not going to get 500+MB/s on a sata 2 system.
I am getting 280 MB/s Read and 114 MB/s Write. The max for Sata 2 is around 300 MB/s. Avoid Benching alot because it really wears on ssd because of the writes it does while you run them. Crusial is the best at least in my opinion because it has proven to be so much more reliable than the other brands have. And that's a major contributing reason for purchasing this brand over some others even though there are some better deals as far as storage space goes. Weigh your options; Economic Eye Candy or Reliability. This is my second Crucial 64gb ssd and both run very well with no issues what so ever. Hope this helps you on making a choice and thanks for reading
