Can the performance match the gorgeous aesthetics?

The Crucial M225 256GB SSD is the fastest Solid State Drive I've tested so far. The read and write times are off the chart, beating two WD VelociRaptor's in RAID 0 by a long shot. If you're in the market for a SSD keep this one at the very top of your...

Crucial M225 256GB Solid State Disk

 

Crucial brings Indilinx power to their SSD lineup, but the price and warranty is what makes this product really stand out. Introduction
