TSSDR Mega SSD Giveaway Week 3 – Crucial M4 256GB mSATA SATA 3 SSD

Welcome to Week Three of TSSDR’s Grand Birthday SSD Giveaway Celebration and we are going to mix things up a bit for this one!

This week, TSSDR has teamed up with Crucial to give away one of the smallest, highest capacity and most powerful storage devices on the planet, a Crucial M4 256GB mSATA SSD.  Weighing in at only 7 grams, being only 1/3rd the size of a credit card and just higher than a 25 cent piece, this SSD is just pure genius.

Once again the contest is open to WORLDWIDE entries and there is no FB requirement. For this draw however, each person will only need to earn one ballot and we hope to have made things easier yet for contest entry!  mSATA SSD lovers unite!


  1. You MUST comment on our Forum Giveaway Post and participate in our Forums during the period of the contest to be eligible to win.  Let’s be honest here folks; the purpose of our draws is to build our community and help bring people into the world of SSDs.  These draws are only possible if we can build a community that would encourage such draws in the future.
  2. We would like you to comment on our Site post at the bottom of this entry;
  3. We would like you to LIKE our Facebook Post and consider following our Facebook Page ;
  4. We would like you to LIKE Crucial’s Facebook Post which speaks to our contest.

At the end of the day, we would like these types of giveaways to continue but we need the support of our readers and manufacturers to do this.  The concept of entering and NOT becoming part of a Forum community doesn’t hold its own but the possibility of future monthly contests being limited to the top…say 50 contributors… in a strong community is great.  Help me…help you!

This contest will run from posting until Sunday 23 September 2012 at 11:59pm.  Drawing may be delayed a few days for this draw as our staff are on a business venture until return on Thursday 27 September 2012.

Contest is open to worldwide entries, no FB requirement, winners are required to answer a very silly skill testing question in accordance with Canadian regulations and, to qualify, one must post to the Contest Thread at our Forums and be a regularly contributing member during the period of the draw.

    Another SSD contest? Les how did you get your hands on so many SSDs to giveaway!

    • The manufacturers all jumped aboard and we still have many more to give away. Look for inclusions from companies such a OWC, Runcore, Memoright and a few others!! in fact, I think we may have Kingston on board for the entire month of October and four great SSDs to give away.
