Great price for this 240gb msata from crucial. Good reviews too. I think they're having a clear out ready for the m550's, but this is still a good piece of kit, especially for the money.

It's been 78 a few times, if you can wait it might go down again. Still decent price if you need mSATA, they're never reduced to the same level as their 2.5" brethren...

I thought MX100 replaces the M500 but I don't see it in mSATA format... So they might keep it otherwise M550 would be the only Crucial in mSATA format...

Smaller.

Some computers don't allow for a full sized 2.5" SSD drive. Like some laptops and NUC's. Some desktop motherboards have msata slots too.

oh I see, when I replaced my laptop one I just replaced the whole hdd but I guess this lets you use both. any downsides to these then?

Sweet, a 1.8 inch drive that will replave the 40GB PATA in my old Sony VAIO ultrabook!

Heat added, even if I'm going to buy the 128GB version for £55.

Now I need to find an IDE to mSATA adapter that will fit my laptop!

Just thought I'd add a bit more information. mSATA SSDs don't allow you to fit as many chips as their 2.5" brethren so they can be slower, but at the same time they're so much smaller, here's a picture of a laptop that can fit both a 2.5" drive and two mSATA drives:

the mSATA card is up at the top in the middle, the one with a lighter shade of blue. The 2.5" drive is on the far right at the top, under the metal. As you can see, you can easily fit two mSATA cards in the space of one 2.5" drive for super speeds, or alternatively make the device even smaller than it currently is.

That's not mSATA though...

This one is SLOW

I've got a 480gb one and it's nowhere near as fast as my M4 128gb SSD, only benefit is it's an OS drive so the read speeds aren't too critical

Got this one from crucial after waiting Amazon 3 days and they didn't even dispatch with free shipping. Excuse the language but **** disgraceful. Cancelled it and ordered from crucial, got it next day dpd for 2£ cheaper. Amazon has gone way down hill and useless unless you pay for prime...

Amazon free shipping is hit-and-miss - it may not dispatch for a week or might dispatch the same day. I would not rely on it if you need it soon but it does usually arrive within the timeframe ... ;)
