Oh why did it take so long for me to realize that SSD is sooooo awesome!? My old drive with the spinning platters was such a bottle neck...now the system flies when the chip and memory are free to do their magic. As of Sept 2015...price is cheap. If you bother to research (i didn't) there are probably much faster drives out there...I didn't care much because it's my first SSD....and figure the move to the new tech would be a big jump in performance either which way...I was right.

Well worth the 70$ I payed for it even used!
High quality drive with excellent performance and reliability!! They don't make SSD's like this anymore. Picked up used SSD and CrystalDiskMark still reports drive in 99% condition after roughly 3 years old. As long as you install in AHCI or RAID Mode you will be able to have TRIM enabled and you won't destroy your drive, and not defrag it lol. Perfect for upgrading even aging SATA II 3.0gbs systems.

I bought this SSD for my old Lenovo ThinkPad X200 Tablet. It's an old tablet PC that came without a hard drive, so naturally it's best to equip it with a solid state drive.
Compared to most other hard drives, this one is blazingy fast. One of the greatest advantages of a solid state drive is that ir never needs any defragmentation. A quick trim of a minute will keep it running at optimal shape.
The downside is that over time, SSD's wears out quicker than conventional HDD's. This one has the Media Wearout Indicator at 97%, which translates to over 8 years of life under normal conditions.

It's a lot faster than a standard hard drive but I haven't been using it because after purchasing the SSD, I discovered that to get the most out of the drive you should implement a RAMdisk. I find that task daunting as I would have to do this in both WinXP & Linux and I am a noob. So until such time as I might find motivation to accept my fate of multiple crashes, following advice that seems to work for them, and horrendous frustration, your fine product will remain a dust collector! Actually, I hope it won't be a long time because I would really enjoy the boost in performance for I have always hated slow - ever since my first 386SX! Ughh!

It's highly rated for a reason...
First, a little history: My setup consisted of an 80GB Intel X25 SSD, three 1TB Caviar Black, and one 2TB Caviar green.
I have my OS in the Intel SSD, the rest of the drives hold a lot of data. And my new Crucial M4 SSD holds my frequently used games and applications. Needless to say, the setup is lightning fast.
The Crucial M4 is indeed a great SSD. I purchased the M4 in order to house my applications and lower launch time (namely for games and game design tools). Like the X25, I like the fact that it is very fast, reliable, quiet, and low on power consumption. On the down side, not everyone can afford an M4 - although the prices have gone down considerably.
Compared to a common 7,500 RPM hard drive, the SSD is miles ahead. Compared to the X25, the 128GB M4 wins some loses others (unlike the 256GB M4 - 27% faster than the 128GB - which wins all over the X25).
On SATA II the M4 comes ahead on writes over the X25, but falls behind on reads - albeit, very slightly - where it matters (4K reads).
On SATA III the M4 comes ahead everywhere, as it obviously should since the X25 is SATA II.
All in all, it depends whether or not you should get the M4. If you don't have a SATA III motherboard, there's no reason to spend extra for a SATA III SSD - unless you're planning to upgrade in the near future, and if that's the case, you could always buy a SATA III drive then. Day to day, the average user won't notice the difference between the X25 and the M4, save for 1 or 2 seconds here and there...Read full review
