Available in capacities of 32, 64, 128 and 256GB, Crucial has priced to compete with MSRP listings of $52.99, $80.99, $121.99 and $225.99 which brings the upper capacities under that infamous $1/GB barrier and makes their pricing hard to beat. Crucial SSDs also come with a standard three year warranty.
The Crucial M4 is the twin of the Micron C400 that we reviewed and awarded Editor’s Choice a short time back but hold the press! We just received a 256GB Crucial/Micron product in the mail not ten minutes ago and should have it on the bench shortly. Stay tuned for our detailed analysis of their top capacity mSATA SSD in the next few days and these shots are just a quick peak!
“With the rapid growth in ultrathin laptops and the adoption of smaller system builds, consumers are increasingly in need of SSD performance in a smaller form factor. The Crucial m4 mSATA is designed for users who want the flexibility that a micro-sized SSD offers,” said Robert Wheadon, senior worldwide product manager, Crucial. “In a form factor that’s about a third the size of your business card, the Crucial mSATA SSD can also be used as a standalone SSD or as a cache for an existing drive.”
