Crucial M4 256GB SATA III SSD Review - Crucial M4 256GB SATA III SSD Review
Wed, Jan 02 2013 | 1:21PM | Filed under: Hard Drives| PermaLink Posted by: STAFF

Crucial's M4 solid state drive supports RAID, SMART, NCQ, TRIM, self monitoring and self analysis. Average access times are less than 0.1ms. Peak power consumption is 0.15W, idle is a scant 65mW so this puppy can certainly help extend the battery life of any notebook by replacing a spindle'd hard drive. The 1.2 million hours MTBF rating on Crucial's M4 SSD is slightly lower than other solid state drives PCSTATS recently tested, most of which have averaged 2M hours. It's backed by a 3 year limited warranty. Crucial's 2.5" M4 256GB SSD (CT256M4SSD2) retails for around $210 USD/CDN at, or about $0.82/GB. The M4 SSD family includes models ranging from 120GB all the way up to 480GB capacity. The Crucial M4 is priced per gigabyte between the 240GB SanDisk Extreme which runs about $0.91/GB and the 240GB OCZ Vertex 3 which is pegged at $0.78/GB.

A quick patch update to Windows can extend the useful life of a PC. To take the fear out of Upgrading Windows 98 to Windows XP, rely on this guide. - PCSTATS Tips
