Crucial v4 256GB

It's not always the enthusiasts (and well-heeled) that want blistering speeds, and certainly not just in the SSD arena. Anyone with an SSD can benefit from massive performance gains over a hard drive, from the most diehard to the budget-oriented consumer. So the Crucial v4 targets the latter, offering an SSD that's very accessible to users on a modest budget. Specifically, the v4 is limited to the SATA II 3G interface, so we're not expecting record-breaking performance results today. But at a price of $189, it's a very attractive option. Let's just say that Crucial's stated specifications for this drive turned out to be very conservative, and we were pleasantly surprised by the performance offered by the v4.
