Specifications, Availability and Pricing
The specifications for the SSDNow M-Series are identical to the drive we reviewed back in April. When it comes to performance the M-Series is simply the best consumer SSD money can buy. The Indilinx drives give better synthetic performance, but when it comes to real world applications the Intel controller just outperforms everything else on the market today.
The new retail kit comes with several accessories. The largest besides the actual SSD is the 2.5 inch USB drive carrier. You will also find a disk with drive cloning software and instructions on how to easily clone your current drive and then install the new drive back in your system and never skip a beat or need to reinstall your software.
When it comes to cost the upgrade kit is only a few Dollars more than the standard drive package. At 345.00 USD over at Newegg the upgrade kit costs a little more but the USB drive is going to make up the difference whether you need it or not.
