From the Manufacturer
The Crucial m4 SSD
Award-winning quality. Award-winning performance.The award-winning Crucial m4 SSD delivers powerful performance gains for SATA 6Gb/s systems. Designed to empower your system, the Crucial m4 SSD offers faster application load times, faster boot times, and increased durability compared to a traditional hard drive. The results speak for themselves: blazing-fast sequential read speeds of up to 500 MB/s for any file type.
Cutting-edge technology. Quality component testing. Built with advanced controller technology, Micron proprietary firmware and high-speed synchronous MLC NAND, the Crucial m4 SSD is engineered to deliver consistent, blazing-fast SSD performance. From the extensive research and development that led to its ultimate design, to the hours of testing and validation spent on each NAND component, to rigorous compatibility testing in the Crucial Performance Labs to ensure component functionality, the Crucial m4 SSD is built to last.
Consistently fast speeds. No exceptions and no fine print. Theres a reason the Crucial m4 SSD has garnered numerous international awards since its launch, it does what its supposed to do. No matter what kind of files you're working with on a Crucial SSD, you'll experience high speeds with no drop in performance.
Unlike other SSDs on the market, Crucial SSDs treat all files the same, regardless of whether they're compressed or uncompressed. This is important because the files most people use everyday videos, mp3s, advanced graphics files and zip files - are compressed files and thus unable to be compressed any further. While many SSDs on the market achieve faster speeds by using file compression, many of the most common file types cant be compressed, resulting in SSDs that often deliver drastically slower speeds than originally advertised. With the advanced technology of a Crucial SSD, however, you'll never have this problem!
Crucial quality you can depend on. Crucial is a trusted name when it comes to SSDs, and that's no coincidence. As a brand of Micron, one of the worlds leading manufacturers of SSDs, we work with our engineers to design, refine, and support our drives. With over 15 years of experience in the memory industry, NAND component testing, and the ongoing development of advanced technology, we continue to innovate without sacrificing what has made us great: high-quality upgrades and outstanding customer service.
Crucial SSDs. Performance you can trust.

With respect to enabling TRIM support or not, I decided not to bother, you can Google the issue to make your own decision. There is a freely available app called 'Trim Enabler' should you decide you want to try it.Read more ›
SSD provide a huge boost for your machine and work well with Apple MacBook products. M4 is great!
I have a high end Dell Studio that I purchased in March of 2010. It had two 512 GB hard drives, 8 Gb RAM, 17" touchscreen, slot load blueray burner, and many other features. My only worry was hard drive failure. I started looking for new laptops with 1 Tb of SSD hard drive space and couldn't find any, but Dell did have a model with 512 Gb SSD at a price of $1800. Since my laptop was still high end in most respects, I opted to replace hard drives with SSD's. Reading other positive reviews here convinced me, and I also found the best prices here. I ordered two 512 Gb drives, they came within the promised shipping date. Since I have above average computer skills, I backed up the lappy, made sure I had a factory image, and swapped to the new drives. Tweak the bios to boot from USB stick with factory image and ran with it. Once Win 7 was installed and all my programs were installed, I timed my boot up from hitting the power button. I have to add that this laptop came with facial recognition for login. Time from hitting switch to fully booted and ready for action was anywhere from 37 to 45 seconds!!! WOW!! Very happy with these drives. There was the odd freeze but a firmware update posted on the Crucial website has fixed that. I love these drives. Made a better than new laptop out of my 3 year old lappy.
The drive is fast. But all SSDs are fast. For basic, everyday computer usage this drive will be fast enough. There is no need to go out and buy the latest, fastest SSD. I doubt most people would find any noticeable difference between this drive and the fastest SSDs out there. The huge difference is between getting an SSD and a hard drive. It's definitely one of the best upgrades you can make to your computer.
I find 128GB to be more than enough space. I have my Windows 7 install, and all my non-game programs installed and I still have nearly 80GB of free space on it. I can use a program like Steam Mover to move whatever game I'm currently playing to the SSD and then move it back to the hard drive when I'm done with the game. And mass storage files like music, pictures, and videos don't need to be on the SSD. With a bit of organization 128GB is a good sized SSD.
I've had the drive for 8 months and it hasn't given me any major problems. Crucial has put out a few firmware updates since my purchase to fix a few minor issues. One time the power went out while my computer was running and the drive wasn't detected when booting but this was fixed by doing a power cycle (run the computer without the SSD plugged into any SATA port, but leaving the power cable plugged in the SSD), however this issue was later addressed in a firmware update.
I have an older motherboard and the SATA3 port didn't detect the SSD.Read more ›

Good product, but too expensive for the size of the HD. I already bought another one which is 512GB, a big difference and the price was almost the same as this one. Read morePublished 7 months ago by Hugo-Lupin Catellier
