Unboxing the Crucial M4 mSATA 256GB Solid State Drive

Mini-SATA or mSATA as most people call it was announced towards the end of 2009. It has primarily been used in laptops and netbooks where a very small solid state drive has been needed. Recently with Intel Z77 chipset we have seen many mSATA ports show up on motherboards. Today we get our first look at an mSATA solid state drive, and man is it small! The drive in question today is the Crucial M4 mSATA 256GB drive. Read on to check out our unboxing and overview video!


OCZ Vertex 4 256GB Solid State Drive Review

We all know OCZ as one of the top names in the SSD market.  Believe it or not just a few years ago their main focus was enthusiast memory!  The popular 3rd party solid state drive controller that everyone has been using over the past year or so has been the SandForce SF-2281 chip.  Because so many companies are using the same controller the solid state drive market has become saturated with the same type of drives that offer just about the same performance.  OCZ wants to remain a big player in the solid state drive market and with their purchase of Indilinx last year they made that very apparent.  Earlier this year OCZ announced the second generation Everest solid state drive controller (Everest 2) and the <b>Vertex 4</b> is the first consumer drive to use this controller.  With rated speeds of 560MB/s read and 510MB/s write it is set to compete very well with SandForce-based drives.  Read on as we check out this new drive from OCZ!

It is definitely set to compete with SandForce drives! Read on to check out our unboxing video where we give you an overview of the drive and open it up so you can get a closer look at the Everest 2 platform!


Crucial M4 256GB Solid State Drive Review

The Crucial M4 solid state drive was one of the most popular and most successful solid state drives of 2011.  Much of that success can be attributed to Crucial’s reputation for reliable, quality-made products and because they are one of the largest memory producers out there.  When the M4 first came out it only had a rated read speed of 415MB/s, which is pretty far off from what we’ve seen from other solid state drives in 2011.  Towards the end of 2011 Crucial released a firmware upgrade that boosted the rated speeds to 500MB/s read and 260MB/s write.  A nice improvement!  So today we have the M4 in our labs and we will be taking it through the paces.
