Crucial M4 64GB vs 128GB

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Hey guys

Currently using a SATA 2 board will i notice any difference in REAL life speeds between these 2 drives ?

Thanks

i think if there's a difference you could only explicitly see it in benchies....not in real world applications...probably 1-2s difference.

You probably won't notice a difference. Unless for some reason you intend to do a lot of transferring from your HDDs to the SSD, the sequential write speed difference isn't that important. I'm assuming you're still on USB 2.0, as well, correct?

I have USB 3.0 aswell 2 ports.

But i won't be doing heaps of transferring of data.

I already bought the drive today these are the speeds im getting with a WEI on 7.8 for the drive.

Only difference between 64GB and 128GB is the sequential writing speed (transfering large files TO an SSD). 128 are slighlty faster but you will hardly see a difference. Plus, like you said, you don't do tons of transfering. I'd get a 64GB version (that's what I did though )

Read Speeds are more important then Writes.
