Crucial m4 SSD released in New Zealand
Lexar Media has announced the immediate availability of Crucial m4 solid-state drives in capacities ranging from 64GB to 512GB to the local PC assemblers and system builders market.

Designed for both business customers and general consumers, the Crucial m4 SSD product line incorporates Micron’s 25-nanometer (nm) NAND flash technology in a 2.5” form factor.

Like its Crucial RealSSD C300 predecessor, the Crucial m4 also supports the SATA 6Gb/s interface, opening up the data path between the host processor and the SSD, and resulting in improved overall system responsiveness, including faster boot times and application loads.

The new Crucial m4 SSD reaches read speeds of up to 415MB/second, a 17 percent increase over its predecessor. Likewise, write speeds on the new 512GB capacity have demonstrated increases up to 260MB/s, a 20 percent boost over the fastest C300 drive1. Ideal for client computing, Crucial m4 SSD products provide benefits for notebooks, desktops, workstations, and industrial applications, including low power consumption, lightweight construction, and resistance to shock and vibration.

“The new Crucial m4 SSD builds on the enormous success of its predecessor, the Crucial RealSSD C300. As a subsidiary of Micron Technology, we’re in the unique position of leveraging Micron’s NAND development and manufacturing expertise for our Crucial branded SSDs,” said Robert Wheadon, worldwide senior product manager. “These next-generation m4 SSDs offer customers higher capacities and even greater performance at affordable prices.”

Priced at US$129.99 for a 64GB SSD; US$249.99 for a 128GB SSD; US$499.99 for a 256GB SSD; and US$999.99 for a 512GB SSD, the Crucial m4 SSD product line is backed by a three-year warranty. Local pricing will be calculated at time of purchase.
