Crucial M4 128GB SSD ReviewPosted on 2011-05-28 23:06:28 by Thomas De Maesschalck
Today’s review of the Crucial M4 256GB SSD comes as a ‘readers choice’ SSD review as it has made its way to our office only through the amount of e-mails received asking for its performance beside that of its big brothers and other SSDs of similar size. The common theme with new ‘Gen 2′ SSDs is that higher capacity equates to better performance. Our M4 128GB SSD tests seem to contradict this and we believe that Crucial just may have found the ‘sweet spot’ for this SSD.
The Crucial M4 SSD family is available in capacities of 64, 128, 256 and 512GB and a quick price check shows them at $119, $259, $449 and $949 at the time of writing this review. This immediately earns Crucial the best price for a value SSD as well as the best price for a top capacity SSD as the 512GB M4 is almost $800 under the competition with 32GB more space available. Performance is listed at 415MB/s read and 175MB/s write which is just below that of its 256GB brother at 415MB/260MB/s.
