Not really - this is the very slow v4 model not the m4.

Stop living in Benchmark Land you fool.

It's not just benchmark land, it's real life. I had one of these and RMA'ed it. It's slower than a spinny disk.

Very good price, they misprinted as SATA-600, in fact it's SATA-300. Heat added.

Only 48 pence per 1GB is cheap

38p precisely, just a small correction.

fwiw, I don't think Crucial has yet to release any firmware update for this new V4 product to address the freezing issue reported by owners

Don't get this if you have a Mac! Read all the user problems.

Otherwise hot as a normal drive.

Looks like a mis-price anyway as it is priced below the 64GB drive - the 128GB without laptop kit is £62.99 + P&P:

It's certainly no upgrade to a decent desktop 7200rpm or 10000rpm drive :(

Good deal

Ok, the drive is certainly slow by SSD standards but there's no need to go overboard and call it slower than a HDD.

It still beats the Velociraptor 150GB which is the fastest consumer HDD available.

Got this from ebuyer and sent it straight back, it hangs far too much with both Windows 7 and Ubuntu 12.10. You get what you pay for i guess, certainly wasn't worth any more in all honesty.

For a laptop that only as SATA-300 on the chipset, is this worth getting? What percentage speed increases will there be over the 7200rpm 2.5" SATA HDD I've got in there? Obviously there are heat and noise benefits to consider.

Got the sata2 OCZ Vertex 60Gb from Curry's for £30 used for a fortnight and a definite improvement over HDD,well worth it.
