Hungry for more? The new m4 SSD built on the success of the award-winning, wildly popular Crucial RealSSD C300 solid-state drive offers mobile and desktop users scorching-fast read and write speeds, groundbreaking SATA SSD computing, and unparalleled performance for the dollar.

The Crucial m4 incorporates Micron's industry-leading 25nm NAND flash technology in a 2.5" form factor. It also supports the SATA 6Gb/s interface, opening up the data path between the host processor and the SSD, and resulting in improved overall system responsiveness, including faster boot times and application loads. The Crucial m4 SSD reaches read speeds of up to 415 MB/s, a 17% increase over its predecessor. Ideal for client computing, Crucial m4 SSD provides benefits for notebooks, desktops, workstations, and industrial applications, including low power consumption, lightweight construction, and resistance to shock and vibration.

  • newegg Memory Experts Delivering on the highest quality based upon Micron’s leading-edge NAND media, the Crucial brand of SSDs has long been synonymous with reliability and high performance.

Was alright but endurance is not very good. Terrible boot drive if you expect more than 3 years out of it. 12/8/2018 9:42:36 PM

Pros: Fast
Reasonable performance for cost
Great Media drive for reading from, write once and read type media.

Cons: Endurance is somewhat low, compared to other drives at least (all I can do)
Low number of writes before expected failure (Something like 6tb of writes)
Bad OS Drive

Overall Review: Just do not use this as a boot drive in my opinion, which is not stated anywhere in their data and many other drives with similar performance so why take this unless its on a great sale.

Worked great for a few years 4/7/2018 10:31:13 AM

Pros: Worked great, no problems until it died, big enough for my OS

Cons: My drive didn't last very long, and I had to replace it just four years after I bought it. And, being that it had my OS, this was quite a pain.

Been working great for 5 years now 6/2/2017 3:36:03 PM

Pros: longevity

Cons: slow, compared to new stuff.

Overall Review: I have 3 of these. 1 now runs Windows Server 2016, after running win7 and 10 for 5 years. The other two used to run win7, but now are used as huge USB thumb drives. I'm constantly moving video files back and forth between the 2. No real problems yet.

still functioning 6 years later 4/11/2017 1:56:02 PM

Pros: - fast

Cons: - none that I know of

Overall Review: - I would never buy a 128GB drive again, as they are simply too small. But this does not affect my rating for obvious reasons (as in my fault).
- I would tend to buy Samsung 850 EVO drives these days, but I think Crucial makes a fine drive, so if you are budget limited you should definitely look at their new models.

Very Fast 1/25/2017 7:15:25 PM

Pros: Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate now loads in less than 7 seconds vs. The minute it took before. Computer is much more responsive overall as expected. Reminds me of jumping from IDE to 15k SCSI drives in a workstation I had years ago.

- Drive still works with no failures.

Cons: None so far.

Overall Review: I am still running this drive in SATA2 mode until the new motherboard / processor gets in next week so I haven't seen it at full speeds yet.
