Crucial M225 128GB SSD
Crucial have been in memory business for a long time and it's only natural for them to have been one of the first companies who provided solid state drives for the home user. Today we will be looking at their M225 128GB SSD which is designed as a large capacity notebook replacement storage solution.
As we're all aware by now a Solid State Drive (SSD) is the number one performance enhancing upgrade you can purchase. Nowhere is this more true than in notebooks where not only do they need every bit of performance assistance they can get, but also any improvement in battery life allows for more productivity. So does the Crucial M225 deliver?
