Im also deciding between this two but 256GB models. I won't use them for the OS but for Music Samples, so it would be read only no writes.

Which one would be better for me, or maybe some other brand?

What Micron rates them for as a final product and what the chips were truly designed/tested for are two different things. Testing the difference between the two types of NAND Flash and the difference is fairly significant.

I don't read the Micron statement as being encouraging. I read it as an admission that 25nm NAND has a shorten life span but to make customers feel better they just rate them the same.

Had the M4 for about a month now and it's been pretty quick w/o any problems since I got it. 20GB free on 64GB and shows no signs of slowing down.

I don't know what the freezing issue is all about, never had the problem. I'll take a shot in the dark and call it "user error".

m4 is amazing drive! My vote for m4 for sure! Better sequential speeds and more IOPs. Slightly slower random reads compared to C300 but we are already in a range where it doesn't matter for boot or application startup. More sequential speed does help with big video files. My friend's 256GB M4 is giving about 460-470MB/s read and 275MB/s writes of incompressible data, which is awesome!
