Specifications, Pricing and Availability
That is a really big spec list isn't it. I internally pulled the whole section to give you as much info as I could, because the actual specifications at the top of the page are quite small. It seems Crucial is spending too much time with the Lexar side of the company and enthusiast products are now being dumbed down to look like brick and mortar retail products on paper.
We still get some information from Crucial's product page. The read speed is quoted as being up to 415MB/s and of course that is with SATA III. The drive, as with every SATA III drive we know of also supports SATA II.
Crucial offers three kit versions for all of their m4 product line. Today we are looking at the drive only kit, but the company also offers a desktop kit that includes a desktop adapter bracket and a notebook kit that includes a USB to SATA cable and drive cloning software.
Aside from the kit options, Crucial offers the m4 product line in four capacity sizes. Those are 64GB, 128GB, 256GB and the largest size that we are looking at today, 512GB.
Pricing is all over the place on the m4 products depending on where you're shopping at. Using Google's Shopping feature, we found the 64GB for as low as 115 Dollars. Our 512GB sample is available for just under 600 USD from one e-tailer and goes all the way up to 1,100 Dollars at others with several stops in-between.
