Crucial has just released its new M4 lineup of 2.5-inch solid-state drives, which are the successors to the RealSSD C300 range, and boast faster read and write speeds. The Crucial m4 solid-state drives (SSDs) has been launched by Lexar Media, using 25nm technology NAND flash created by parent company Micron and is available in 64GB, 128GB, 256GB and 512GB models.
The 512GB model is $999–the cost of a low-end 11.6-inch Air. Now, that may seem pricey but let’s not forget the good old days when high-capacity SSDs were priced in the exosphere, costing several thousand dollars. And some still do. Check out this link for a OCZ Technology SSD.
The Crucial 512GB m4 has impressive specs: Micron Technology’s 25-nanometer NAND flash design, Serial ATA 6 gigabit-per-second interface, and read speeds up to 415MB/second and write speeds up to 260MB/s. The drive is available in a 2.5-inch form factor.
Smaller capacity models are priced as follows: $129.99 for a 64GB SSD, $249.99 for 128GB, and $499.99 for 256GB.
