Default Crucial m4 256GB SATA 6Gbit/s SSD Review

It's been a while since we last took a look at a Crucial product, so for the next one, how about we make it interesting? SSDs aren't uncommon, but high-end SSDs that don't feature a SandForce controller are - and of course, that's what makes Crucial's m4 notable. Does its lack of a SandForce controller hold it back? Let's take a look.

Read through Robert's full look at Crucial's m4 SSD and then discuss it here!

Thanks man. I somehow managed to push out an older edit of the article somehow; no EC was meant to be given here, hence the incorrect naming. Not quite sure how that happened :-/

Great review!

This is my dream drive. I currently have the 128GB M4 and could not be happier. It was nice to read your thoughts on it.
