The Crucial m4 128GB SSD fits right between the competitions mainstream and high-end products. For Crucial, the m4 is their flagship and its high read and write ratings justify that position. At the time of writing the m4 costs less than the OCZ Vertex 3, Agility 3, Intel 510 and Corsair Performance 3 of the same capacity. The Crucial m4 is actually one of the highest bargains at this point when shopping for a next gen SATA 6G SSD. Now it's time to see how it performs!
ATTO Baseline Performance
Version and / or Patch Used: 2.34
ATTO is used by many disk manufacturers to determine the read and write speeds that will be presented to customers.
The Crucial m4 delivers on its 415MB/s read rating and in our testing we managed to achieve 450MB/s when using a 1MB block size. The m4 is also an overachiever in the write speed department. Crucial claims 175MB/s, but we routinely hit 183MB/s.
