Product Description

Style Name: 64GB M4 + Transfer Kit

Manufacturer's Description

Continuing the tradition of our award-winning solid-state drives, the Crucial m4 offers mobile and desktop users scorching-fast read and write speeds, groundbreaking SATA SSD computing, and unparalleled performance for the dollar.

Latest and greatest
Designed for client computing, the Crucial m4 SSD delivers faster boot and application load times for mobile and desktop users alike. Low power, lightweight, and durable, it empowers high-speed synchronous MLC NAND, advanced controller technology, optimized NAND management, and the second-generation SATA 6Gb/s interface. Together, that technology dramatically improves data transfers for bandwidth-demanding applications.

Memory Experts
Delivering on the highest quality based upon Micron’s leading-edge NAND media, the Crucial brand of SSDs has long been synonymous with reliability and high performance. And because we’re part of Micron, the m4 was bred and built entirely in-house. So you can rest assured you’ll get one of the highest quality products available—from the company that knows memory.

Why an SSD?
SSDs provide many benefits over traditional hard drives. You’ll enjoy reduced power consumption, less heat generation. Because they have no moving parts, SSDs are quiet, more lightweight, and they’re rugged and reliable even in the most demanding operating environments or temperature extremes.

Guaranteed Compatible
Crucial m4 series employ a standard hard drive interface and dimensions, so it is an easy storage upgrade for most notebooks. We guarantee compatibility.

I picked up one of these a few days ago to complement a newer Sandy Bridge setup. For no reason I could ever figure out, my boot times were terrible with the motherboard (an Asus P8P67 Pro) using a conventional HD - on the order of 3 minutes from cold until the PC was responsive. Connected to a SATA-3 controller, this SSD reduced my boot time to around 35 seconds, and, once the desktop appears, the PC is fully responsive to whatever you want to do. It sounds obvious, but the main thing that differentiates SSDs from conventional HDs is this "snappiness" factor - seek times are completely flat, thus, the only delay is actually transferring data off the drive to RAM for CPU operations (and this drive is capable of >400 megabyte per second bursts). The drive is also completely silent, and it's slightly weird not to hear the usual HD ticking & clicking. You may also need a 3.5" drive bay adapter; physically, the drive is about 50% bigger than a credit card and very light - alternatively, I have seen these drives held in place by double-sided tape - with no moving parts, you can pretty much put them anywhere the data and power cables will stretch. Also, a side effect of the "solid state" part of the drive is that it is largely unaffected by any movements or accidental drops - anything that doesn't destroy the casing will leave the drive completely unaffected - the interior is largely the same as a USB flash drive, but with larger capacity chips and a small controller.

I initially had some trouble with the drive (some stuttering and pausing) after installing Windows7 then Intel's RST drivers (the drive is connected to an Intel ICH9 port), and decided that a re-format would be my best option to completely get rid of the Intel drivers.

This works very well with my MacBook Pro (15 inch early 2011). However it is necessary to install a firmware update (see instructions below) in order for the SSD to work. Once installed I noticed a dramatic speed improvement. Did a fresh install of Mountain Lion and it's like a new laptop!

Instructions for MacBook Pro (early 2011):

1) Backup your files to an external hard drive with Time Machine.

2) Go to the Crucial website and download the latest firmware (as of writing version 000F). This consists of a .iso and a .pdf guide.

3) Burn the iso to a black CD or DVD using Disk Utility. (The USB option did NOT work for me!). There's plenty of guides/videos on how to burn an .iso if you search the web.

4) Two options at this point: a) Create a bootable OS X install USB so that you can install an operating system on the SSD once it's installed or b) use your Time Machine backup to copy your files to your new SSD. I'll follow option a).

5) Insert the firmware DVD/CD into your Macbook and shut it down. Open it up and remove your current hard drive. Replace it with the SSD and screw everything back in place (again there's plenty of excellent videos online if you're unsure...)

6) Turn on your MacBook. I didn't have to press anything. After about 30 seconds the firmware updater presented itself. You'll be prompted for a 'yes' or 'no'. Type 'yes' and hit enter. After another minute or so the firmware will be updated.

7) Hold the power button to switch off your MacBook. Insert your OS X install USB stick. Power up your MacBook while holding the option key. Select the OS X installer.

8) Once you've booted into the USB installer you'll be presented with a menu. Select Disk Utility.

Style Name: 128GB M4 + 3.5" Bracket Verified Purchase
My aging Dell Dimension has been puffing and wheezing for a while now and is in serious need of a replacement.......but I can't help but tinker!!!

At £1GB SSD are now becoming affordable so I bought one. Had to be Crucial, in my opinion they are THE most reliable memory manufacturer in the business. I bought Acronis True Image, made a boot disc, decoupled my second drive, plugged the M4 in and began the cloning procedure, re-booted and Acronis did the rest. About 30 mins later I was putting the case back together and eager to see what the boot speed would be.....

It is now breathtakingly quick. No exaggeration, none. Ok I have made a couple of other clean up tweaks but my old XP P4 3Ghz machine, 3.5GB RAM was booting from a cold start in around 8 mins (ridiculous I know but it's old!!!!), now, 1min and 43secs (yes I have timed it that accurately). Programmes open almost the second you click them and Mozilla now flies and opens in about 3 seconds.

I am completely amazed at the speed. It has hung a couple of times but no more than it used to so I don't think it's the M4.

If you have a slow old PC like me and enjoy getting the bonnet up on it occasionally then I would recommend this drive to breathe some life back in your old girl, it is truly outstanding.

One word of warning though....well a tip really. If you are pretty new to taking the side off your PC and going for a wander through the wiring then I would recommend that you pay a little more and get the M4 with the transfer cable from Crucial (its available on Amazon)l. It will clone your drive easily. I took the hard route as I wanted Acronis for back up and partitioning resources so used the cloning tool bundled with the software. I have seen plenty of BLUE SCREENS and DOS messages in my time but even I was worried when nothing happened during the cloning process for about 10 mins........

Buy this and you will not be dissapointed!!!
