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. There's a reason the Crucial m4 SSD has garnered numerous international awards since its launch -- it does what it's 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 can't 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 world's 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.

This is the best SSD drive due to its great reliability and decent transfer speeds. It may not be the fastest out there, but it has a proven track record. During my usage over the past year, I have never experienced a BSOD.
I bought this drive over the Samsung 840 (non pro)because of all the positive reviews and people swearing by the reliability of this crucial m4. I have no complaints, except I'm stuck using it on an older X58 build.
I installed two of these in a RAID 0 array and they are super fast. Windows 7 boots up within seconds and overall performance is awesome. I would not hesitate in buying more of these for future builds.
I've been using this on a dual boot Windows7/Linux Mint setup for about 6 months now and I absolutely love it. Makes boot up times virtually disappear. Linux Mint just recently optimized it's code for this drive and it's staggering how fast it boots up and shuts down. I primarily use Windows for video gaming and my Crysis 2 load times were cut down by about two thirds when I switched from SATA III to this SSD. Makes the video gaming experience so much more seamless and fun.
