Solid State Drives based on the Indilinx controller have been a force to be reckoned with in the marketplace. These drives are extremely fast, do not stutter, have great support, and have made SSD technology far more accessible to the masses. The size of the proverbial pie has gotten larger, but several manufacturers are jockeying to position themselves at the forefront, vying for your hard-earned money.

Crucial is a respected name in the memory business, but they’ve been a bit slow out of the blocks in the SSD race. We’ve seen this before, but we know that it’s usually paid off with some excellent product lineups as a result. However, the SSD market is extremely competitive and bruising, not for the feint of heart. So the question here is: Can Crucial make up for lost time and offer an SSD that will put them right in the thick of things?

We know that the Crucial M225 SSD looks gorgeous, and more importantly, it is one of the least expensive Indilinx-based drives on the market. That’s all fine and dandy, but what about performance? Has Crucial used their time wisely and harnessed the power the technology has to offer? Let’s put the M225 against several of the top SSDs on the market and find out.
