Our review today is going to focus on the Crucial M4 512GB SSD and the most noteworthy thing about this SSD needs to be said right off. At under $1000, it sells for almost half of that of competitor new generation SATA 3 SSDs and its performance easily ranks it amongst the best in Gen 2 top tier 6Gbps solid state drives available today. Its PCMark Vantage benchmark even trumps that of the 256GB M4 that we reviewed previously. Our first hint of the M4 512GB SSD came in January when we visited Crucial at CES in Las Vegas. Kelly Sasso, Media Relations Manager for Crucial Technology, and Justin Sykes, Director of SSD Marketing at Micron, spoke of their upcoming release of SATA 3 SSDs that would not only create a new price point for SSDs, but also, maintain a performance level that would be attractive to the consumer. As unexpected as it was, the response to our Crucial M4 256GB SSD review was the highest we had seen to date and demonstrated the consumer interest with respect to SATA 3 and, more specifically, Crucials new entry into the SATA 3 SSD arena
