Crucial m4 C400 SSD (256GB) Review

Crucial m4 256GB SSD Review

During the last generation of SSDs when the majority of models were limited to SATA 2 speeds there was one manufacturer who was pushing the boundaries with a SATA 3 model and that company was Crucial. Their C300 drive was easily the fastest drive available for read speeds and to this day is still considered a high end model by most. Other manufacturers don’t stand still though and in the past couple of months we have seen OCZ preview their Vertex 3 architecture and Intel release their first SATA 3 model. Both of these exceed the performance of the C300 in the majority of tests and so it was time for Crucial to think about refreshing their product range.

Today we have one of Crucials new SSDs, the 256GB m4, connected to our P67 system and will be running it through a selection of real world and synthetic tests to establish how it compares to the Intel 510 series and OCZ Vertex 3. In addition to that we will also throw in the C300 and a first generation SandForce drive to see where this new model sits.
