Customer Reviews

Great Start, Small Hiccup, Overall Good I bought the mSATA version of the Crucial M4 mostly for the form factor and have not been disappointed at all. I also bought it for the fact that it's one of, if not THE only mSATA SSD I know that doesn't use compression algorithms (a la SandForce). The Marvell controller here works great and Crucial/Micron have done a fantastic job with their firmware. Just as I received it (about 2 weeks ago) they sent notice of an updated firmware that fixed most all extended use failures that people have been getting in the past. I myself have not had a single problem. As I said in the title, it may not max out the synthetic benchmark programs or have the fastest write specifications on paper but it does have one of the best reliability track records out there and it doesn't use any sort of super over-provisioning or compression to get the job done. It also has one of the most attentive companies backing it and troubleshooting the problems that do arise, so that makes it a true winner in my book. You won't be disappointed in the performance if you're upgrading from any standard platter based HDD. Also, if you're looking for the small form factor and something to plug directly into a desktop motherboard or laptop to save space, it accomplishes that goal for you as well.For a little background on the hardware, it's been first used in an ASUS Crosshair III Formula motherboard in a SATA II socket through the Syba adapter. Afterwards I transferred it over to a new build on the Maximus V Gene where it directly plugs into the mPCIE expansion bracket (also SATA II). For those interested, it does also work wonderfully of course in the SATA III sockets on the new build which allows for faster read speeds. I however prefer the convenience of the direct motherboard interface and the fewer cables associated therewith. My perception is that it does not suffer for being attached to a SATA II socket. The response times are just as snappy and Windows 7 still grades it at 7.8 so I'm happy. If you have questions or concerns, feel free to comment and I'll try to answer as best I can from my own experience.*******UPDATE ON 28-Oct-2012*******Well.... two days after the return window to Amazon, the drive decided to fail... No warning, just suddenly a blank screen. Upon reboot, the drive cannot be found. It seems another reviewer here has the same problem with the most recent firmware revision. The drive is no longer listed at all in the BIOS in any mode (IDE or AHCI) after a crash and hard reboot. *SIGH*. I'm just glad I kept my Raptor in it's original image condition (just a month old is all). Now I have to see how or if Crucial handles the RMA and whatnot. Here's hoping my faith is not betrayed. :-(*******UPDATE ON 31-Oct-2012*******I visited the Crucial forums after trying the tech support email. I managed to find a "power cycle" reset method to allow the SSD to self correct. It worked and I didn't have to follow through with an RMA. The drive came back to life without any data loss thankfully and it's working just as well as it did before! The issue I experienced was with the 01MG firmware revision. It is known to Crucial/Micron and hopefully they are working on a fix. I am glad they do actually support their products and that the community is active in finding fixes. They did respond very quick to the support email I sent as well. My faith in good companies held true! =DHere are the links to those fixes for anyone who might also have a similar problem. First is the official procedure from Crucial:forum.crucial.com/t5/Solid-State-Drives-SSD-Knowledge/Why-did-my-SSD-quot-disappear-quot-from-my-system/ta-p/65215Next is the procedure (slightly modified) that I used and worked quite well:forum.crucial.com/t5/Solid-State-Drives-SSD/How-I-fixed-my-M4-that-wouldn-t-detect-in-the-BIOS/td-p/110964 4Perfect for Toshiba Portege Z835-P330 I was running out of room on my stock 128 Gig so I upgraded to this product.

I created a backup image in windows and restored after booting from CD. I managed the new unallocated space by using EaseUSPartition Home Edition(which is really free) created a new primary partition and then merged to the C drive. Almost took more time to write the review than actually do the install. 5Very Good performance with "However's" I'm using this on a Lenovo Y560. I put Win 7 x64, all Program Files and one game only. Music, videos, pictures and other games in D: which is the original 500GB SATA drive. I enabled TRIM and aligned disk. Pagefile on SSD also.PROSBIOS detected SSD at the first try. No problems there.My computer was transformed: Blazing speeds. Windows Experience Index regarding hard disk revealed a huge increase from 5.9 to 7.6.Everything runs much smoother, and I tend to put high loads on my system. File copying is incredibly fast. In my case: Sequential reads up to 256 MB/s and sequential writes up to 111 MB/sCONS:No screws came with the packaging. They are not so common, so I had to use two selected screws from the chassis. Y560's chassis is not that robust. And now even less with two less screws.But, the worse problem: After 5 months use, Windows system started to crash/hang. I regrettably discover that this was due to bad clusters in the SSD. 60 KB to be precise. Some clusters were part of pagefile.sys, hence the system crashes. After using check disk with surface testing, Windows regained stability and speed. Take in to account, that I do not use my SSD with apps that make high volumes of I/O reads/writes. I use my regular HD for that.I wonder if my SSD will continue to develop bad clusters, as regular hard disks tend to do after the firsts failures. Reliability has gone to the drain.Now, I will see what the manufacturer and it's warranty have to say.I think problems are not only with Crucial SSD. On the web you'll find that other brands have problems too. Maybe I got a "lemon". Not that critical for now, SSD still operates OK. So "half a lemon" ;-)Cheers! 3WORKS WITH WINDOWS 8 I purchased this SSD for my Lenovo A720. It came with Windows 7 Pro. I installed the SSD easily and then dual booted Win 8 on it. Works fantastic. Load-up speed is incrementially faster. I had one hiccup where it did not recognize the drive a few days after using it, but the error message went away and I have not seen that since. I did not update the driver but plan to, avoiding the driver that has been reported as plagued with issues by other reviewers.BE AWARE!!! The mSATA does not come with the screws needed to anchor it into the drive. For me, I needed them, as the SSD would rise off the housing when inserted and needed the screws to stay locked in place. You can purchase them from a store or reallocate other screws if need be. This is a minor annoyance but not a big deal if you know ahead of time.CAUTION!!! There are two different types of SSD drives - mSATA for laptops and SATA for desktops. The former is very small (about the size of your thumb finger) while the latter is bigger (about the size of your first). Not knowing a single thing about SSDs, I was told to buy one and install it to speed up my computer processing, so I ordered the SATA version. When it came, it was quite apparent that it would not fit in the drive, so I had to replace it with the mSATA version.I hope this review helped you. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. Thanks! 4Decent addition with little pain. This is installed in a Lenovo X220 4286CTO with BIOS Rev 1.36. It has an 240GB OCZ Vertex 3 SSD as the primary drive, this mSATA was installed for additional storage. My primary SSD was getting too close to capacity for good performance. SSD's suffer when the capacity exceeds about 75~80%. The two are now at about 50% capacity.The drive installed without problems after removing my laptop keyboard.I used AS SSD Benchmark to check on the performance.Crucial M4 mSATA 256GB formatted to 238.5GB.Sequential Read: 261.7mb/s Write: 234.5mb/s4k Read: 14.3 Write: 2.84k-64 Read: 159.6 Write 59.7Acc.

I use Photoshop and Lightroom, downloading files to my laptop. The type of file transfers I do are more limited by the speed of the SD card and interface. An SDXC x400 Class 10 card will unload to my laptop at about 72mb/s. 4Crucial 256Gb mSATA excellent for Dell XPS 8500 I purchased a Crucial 256Gb mSATA and installed it in a Dell XPS 8500. Then plugged the 2Tb HD the XPS came with into Port 0. The Dell specs were incorrect. The two SATA III ports are Port 0 (blue) and the mSATA port. This configuration works great and leaves two free SATA II ports for expansion. There is one other SATA II port taken by the optical drive.Using Acronis 11.5 Server, was able to migrate a Win 7 64bit image to the mSATA drive. Interestingly, Acronis 10 also worked, but not Acronis 11.0. The drive is set to AHCI in the BIOS. However, was not able to configure the XPS in RAID 0 and migrate the image. When I contacted Dell they said I'd have to install Win 7 64bit from scratch to use it in RAID 0 configuration. Not worth the hassle. Simply migrating the image to the mSATA in AHCI mode provides excellent performance. Furthermore, AHCI is more stable than RAID 0. Would be a hassle to reconstruct the RAID 0 array is case of corruption. As it is with the mSATA drive I can restore a 76Gb image in about 9 minutes. The image is created onto and restored from the 2TB HD.I'm getting advertised performance: about 500 Mb/s sequential read. I have Diskeeper 2011 Server running in the background. So far it does seem to keep the mSATA drive running in an optimized state.Overall, looks like the Crucial mSATA drive is an excellent primary drive for the Dell XPS. Just be sure to buy the two screws that you will need to secure the mSATA drive to the XPS motherboard, or in your laptop. I purchased the Rhino LapTop Screw Kit at Frys. It was only $6.50, but did have the CM2x3 screws (five of them) you will need to do the job. Otherwise you could spend a whole lot of time hunting for that specific screw. Without the screws to secure the mSATA to the motherboard it will pop out of the socket.Be sure to check around on the price. You should be able to get it for $181 or less as of 11-4-2012. I have other Crucial SSD drives. They make good products and support them. Highly recommended. 5Perfect for my Thinkpad T530 Just slapped it into the msata slot of my t530 and was immediately detected. Cloned the windows partition from primary hdd onto this ssd, using the free macrium reflect tool. Bam! It was done. Now Win8 boots in less than 10 sec to the login screen. The apps are super responsive and fast. I immediately saw almost 20min increase in battery charge and now I dont hear the annoying sound of the disk spins. Currently using the hdd as a secondary storage device.I have had real good experience with crucial m4 in the past and always recommend it to my friends and colleagues who ask me for tech advice. For a personal laptop, I think crucial m4 does the job and no need of fancy ssds at steep prices. An average user wouldn't even notice difference between a crucial m4 and samsung 830 for daily usage. So, better to save that extra $$ for something else.And some seem to be making a big issue about screws. This drive came with 2 screws FYI. But, most of the lenovo laptops by default come with screws even in their vacant slots and mine had one. Only one screw was needed to fix it in for T530.So yeah, now that screw issue can RIP.If you are considering this, then don't think twice. Just get it. 5Incredibly fast - while it worked... This is a great drive. I'm hoping mine was just "damaged in shipping". I've used a great number of Crucial RAM and other SSD's for my customers and never had a problem, until I bought this on for myself.The first day it ran beautifully; FAST. Then the "blue-screens" started and finally DOA.Amazon is sending a new one to replace this one. I'll update again when I get the replacement. Too bad it won't already have my Windows and applications installed on it.**** Update - 2013.05.13 ****Unfortunately, while the replacement drive also installed with no problem I am still experiencing issues where the "drive" ceases to respond and crashes Windows. The same symptoms that started with the original part. I am using this in an Asus EP121 slate PC and am told it is compatible but this appears not to be true. I'm afraid I may need to go to Sandisk, instead.I will, first, attempt to contact Crucial to see what they say about this situation. I'll update again with my responses from them.**** Update - 2013.08.19 ****Turns out, I still have bad sectors. My Windows got pretty messed up and I'll need to reload again. BEWARE EP121 users: The latest firmware for the Asus EP121 is NOT FULLY COMPATIBLE with this drive. Crucial IS aware of this. 3Good SATA III speeds for mSATA SSD Satisfied with the performance of this SSD. Under a dollar per gigabyte and good speeds, making it a worthwhile upgrade if you have a motherboard that accepts mSATA or a laptop or other device that has removeable onboard mSATA storage. Very happy that this is SATA 3.I'm seeing read speeds of 400MB/s, write speeds of about 140MB/s, and very quick access times. Speeds are about on par with older 2.5" OCZ Vertex 3 and older Intel X25 SSD drives that I have used in the past (and am still satisfied with). From the cursory check that I did on other mSATA manufacturers, this appears to have the highest speeds / dollar in the mSATA form factor.I feel good about the reliability of this SSD as Crucial manufactures their own SSDs (Crucial is a brand of Micron Technologies) and offers a good warranty. The large SSD manufacturers are Micron/Crucial, Intel, Hynix, Samsung, and Sandisk. Any other brands, such as Corsair or OCZ, source their parts from aforementioned manufacturers. Micron was one of the first to release SSDs that used the new 6 Gb/s SATA III standards, so I feel confident about their technology's reliability. 5works well with lenovo ideapad y480 Although this SSD is not listed as one of the compatible SSDs with lenovo ideapad y480 laptop in Crucial's website, I took the risk and well it definitely works! Although at first I thought of buying an SATA3 SSD for my laptop, I later realized it has a vacant mSATA slot and decided to buy this SSD (an SATA3 SSD would require me to remove my HDD since there is only one drive bay in y480 and now with mSATA SSD, I am using both my HDD and SSD).The SSD arrived with two screws and it took me like 5 minutes to insert the SSD in the PCIe slot. At first boot, the system did not recognize SSD. I opened Device Manager and looked for hardware changes and it did not recognize again. After that, I rebooted the system again. When I opened the Disk Management (can be clicked from the menu Win+X), the SSD was there. I initialized it using quick NTFS format and default unit size. Since my system was pretty new, I didn't want to bother myself with installing everything from scratch. I searched the Net and saw ppl talking about how Paragon Migrate OS to SSD software can seamlessly make the transition from HDD to SSD. My system came with Windows 8 and I discovered only the latest version (v3.0) of Paragon Migrate OS to SSD which costs like $20 supports Win 8. I searched for coupons/promotions and found out that today (01/10/13) Paragon Drive Copy 12 Compact which also supports migration of Win 8 to SSD is offered as a freebie to my luck. I quickly read the Help section (it was actually damn straightforward) and migrated my OS to my new SSD. Then, I restarted my computer and entered BIOS settings by pressing F2 at the boot and moved the SSD up as the first booting device . When the OS booted from the SSD, I opened disk management again and reformatted my HDD not to cause any conflicts.That's all! Now my computer boots in 6 sec before entering password and 7 sec after entering password. My Microsoft Primary Hard disk index went up from 5.9 to 8.1. In the end, I did a little tweaks like moving the Downloads folder of my Interner browser into HDD and so on. I really suffered from the deficiency of information on the Net about how to migrate Win 8 into SSD effectively and seamlessly. I hope my review has been helpful for the ones trying to do the same thing. 5
