Product Description

128GB Crucial M4 2.5IN SATA 6GB/S With Data Transfer Kit

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. There's 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.

If I could give this item 4.5 stars I would. Performance wise, it functions terrifically. It's ridiculously fast, and it's substantially lighter than a spinning HDD. I can actually feel the weight difference in my lenovo X220 laptop (your mileage may vary). My only complaint is that installation was not as smooth as it could be. My laptop can only accept 7mm high drives in the slot. The crucial drive can be modified to fit by removing the black plastic spacer band. I wish they had put this on the outside of the case like the Intel X25m. It was simple to unscrew the case and remove the spacer, but then the screws are too long. I shortened mine by cutting them with wire cutters. The screw metal was soft and this was easy to do, but it probably ruined any chance of returning the drive and it probably voided my warranty.

The included Apricorn drive imaging software worked well. I have read horror stories of corrupted drives from other users who have used it. Maybe this latest version works better. I did have problems with some corrupted files on the SSD after I booted it. I simply ran a chkdsk and repaired or deleted the corrupt files. I was using the live version of Apricorn's imaging software and not the bootable CD. In hindsight I probably should have booted from the live CD to guarantee no locked files or changed files.

Once I removed the spacer the drive fit fine. It booted on the first try, however then the real work began. Thinkpads run a lot of proprietary system software. Here is the list of changes I made.

I bought a Dell L1701 with 16G memory, Intel I7 processor, and two 512G drives in late 2010, a decent machine. Looking for a way to make it faster, I bought the M4 512 SSD with the transfer cable and software. Installation was straight forward and flawless. I was up and running in under two hours.

There is one catch - the M4 series of SSDs need to have their firmware updated or after approximately 5000 hours the drive will go into a "self-heal" mode and shut down every hour as reported by others. Crucial has the firmware on their support site with instructions to download a ZIP file, extract an ISO file, and burn the image to a CD to have the updated firmware on a bootable drive. So you better have a CD/DVD drive (there are ways to create a boot drive on thumb drives, but they can get very complicated). A straight-forward and simple process IF YOU REALIZE Windows 7 has a built-in disk image copy program (Crucial fails to mention this in their update process). It must be an imaged copy or it will not work.

So what does all this mean? - A lightning-fast improvement in boot times and loading of applications.
Some numbers: (number of seconds between power ON in using old drive vs. SSD drive):
* "Starting Windows" splash: 10 / 10
* Windows "Welcome" splash: 40 / 19
* Windows "Boot Music": 79 / 23
* Toolbars across desktop's screen: 110 / 24
* Start-Excel 2010 to new spreadsheet: 42 / 6
* Start Word 2010 to new document: 36 / 6
* Open 50 MByte spreadsheet: 55 / 12

This was my first experience with an SSD. I was nervous about upgrading to an SSD because of so many stability problems reported on different websites and blogs. After reading many different reviews and user comments, I chose the Crucial M4 over the Intel 510 Series which was originally my first choice. My primary requirement for the SSD was stability over performance. I figured the performance difference between an OCZ Vertex 3, or a Crucial M4, or an Intel 510 would be virtually unnoticeable in a real world environment. However, a drive that often crashes would definitely be noticeable. The Intel has the highest stability ratings but the price ($280) was a big pill to swallow for the 120GB. I paid $198 for the M4 on Amazon in September 2011.

Very happy and impressed with the M4 so far. It's been nine months and no stability issues at all - knock on wood. The speed is amazing. Boot times on Windows 7 Pro are less than 15 seconds with all background applications loaded, ready to go. I run all the typical applications including antivirus, some hardware monitoring apps, IM apps and others . About 12 total apps appear on my taskbar.

I use this computer daily for internet, spreadsheets, Word docs, edit HD home videos, import and convert old MiniDV home videos , edit photos, play Blu-Ray movies, edit music files, etc. I also use standby regularly - although there's no reason to continue using standby since boot times are so fast. Applications like Word and Excel pop open as if they were minimized.

This drive is personally my most significant and fun component upgrade since I jumped from a single core Pentium to a Core-2-Duo about 4 years ago or so, which is my typical upgrade interval for tech products.
