Re. the promo code: It was only active for 72 hours.

72 hours is tomorrow. Funds ran out apparently. I missed the deal cause I hesitated...:-(

MY Crucial M4 just died last week, just setup my samsung 840, both same size (well, 128g vs 120g) but have noticed no performance difference, both quite fast.

What happened when it died? I thought mine had died a few months ago as well, but the problem was fixed by performing a secure erase.

And of course you won't notice any difference in performance. Any modern SSD is fast enough that, outside of benchmarks or huge R/W operations, the difference is not noticeable.

thanks guys. I am not really concerned about performance as much as reliability.
