Customer Reviews of Crucial M4 256GB 2.5" SATA III Solid State Drive (SSD) with 3.5" Adapter Bracket
Worth getting this one.4/12/2013
I did a lot of research on SSD before getting this Crucial M4. It gave me speed at least 3 times faster than the previous original hard drive on my Macbook Pro. I am planning to change another one soon.
Good so far4/10/2013
Works great out of the box. Not happy Crucial didn't supply cloning software. Had to use software I got from Kingston when I got my 64GB. Current motherboard only has SATA 2 so will determine speed once upgraded later. Still boots just as fast as with my Kingston.
functions as expected
Installed in my mid-2012 Macbook Pro. Time to boot is <10 seconds! I do lots of video editing and this drive is just fast!
Decreased startup time and is all around fast
I bought this while running OS 10.6.8 and ran Rev 0001 firmware. I had no problems at all but eventually upgraded to Rev 0002. Soon after Rev 0009 came out which I then upgraded to as well and have been using for about 5 months so that's what the majority of my review is based on. There was a large speed difference when running benchmark software between Rev 0009 and previous firmware but real world difference could be another thing. To upgrade firmware just download from the Crucial website, burn to CD, and boot from the CD. It's all very very simple.
