This review is from: Crucial M4 256GB Mini-SATA (mSATA) MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) CT256M4SSD3
Pros: Very fast and the largest size for mSATA size as I am aware of. I used this one to replace my 128GB mSATA SSD drive in my ThinkPad X220 Tablet. I have purchased separately a USB enclosure for my old 128GB mSATA drive so that it becomes a portable hard drive.
Cons: Really no considering the small physical size and large volume for $200.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I put this SSD into the PCI Express Mini Card slot in Lenovo X220. In this way, I can have a very fast system drive. I divided into 58GB for C drive (running Windows 7) and the rest 58GB for data that use often, especially the outlook pst files. The regular hard drive slot of X220 can be 1 512GB rotional hard drive or an Intel 600GB SSD drive. In this way, we can have basically two hard drives.
Cons: It is not a con for the mSATA drive. I have to ask my technical support person to reinstall Windows 7 from scratch in my X220 as I read from somewhere in the web to do so. Lenovo should come up a solution for this system configuration.
Other Thoughts: I read from the web some problem with SSD drive. I think these problems happen in esktop or server application where it is possible for a sudden power loss. For notebook computer application, this is not an issue since we will have power all the time (battery powered).READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This SSD is 7mm high which is good for my Lenovo X220 tablet. This harddrive is even larger than the conventional hard drive in the same size, which is 512GB maximum (7mm high, 2.5 inch hard drive).
Cons: It is expensive. But considering the high speed and therefore high efficiency this bring, it is worth the money.READ FULL REVIEW
