Hi, I would just like to say that that I am impressed with the performance of the M4/C400, I dont even see the welcome screen .. .. ..

I havent done any benchmarks yet but its a 7.9 from WEI

You can't go wrong with either one in my opinion. I was literally blown away by the difference a ssd makes. So, I went and bought another for raid 0.

The C300 is a better OS drive. The M4 is the better all-around drive. The only reason why the C300 out performs the M4 with OS and boot-up is because it has a faster 4k Random Read (60k IOPS vs 40k). Everything else, however, the M4 outperforms (it's a newer generation after all). I'm currently debating between a 64gb M4 and an 128gb.

To be honest, the c400 was £10 cheaper, and not having to look at the welcome screen is quick enough for me!
