Crucial M500 240GB SSD Review - Benchmarks - DiskBench

Crucial M500 240GB SSD Review
We've seen the large 960GB M500 and the smaller 120GB drives. Today we look at the sweet spot for enthusiasts and power users, the 256GB class model. Sold with 240GB of user capacity, does the mid size model suffer from the same performance issues that plague the 120GB model or does this one take after big brother? (NASDAQ:MU)

Note: In this test we use the Lenovo W530 Mobile Workstation and a SuperSSpeed S301 SLC 128GB SSD to move a 15GB block of data to and from the target drive. This is part of our real-world test regiment. Roughly 45GB of data resides on the target drive before the '15GB Block' is transfer. The 15GB Block is the same data we built for the Data on Disk Testing and is a mix of compressible and incompressible data.

In our real-world file transfer test, we see the lopsided read and write performance difference. We use the same 15.2GB block of data on all of the drives with a program called DiskBench to keep track of the score.
