The Crucial m4 (Micron C400) SSD Reviewby Anand Lal Shimpi on March 31, 2011 3:16 AM EST
Sequential Read/Write Speed
To measure sequential performance I ran a 1 minute long 128KB sequential test over the entire span of the drive at a queue depth of 1. The results reported are in average MB/s over the entire test length.
Sequential write performance at low queue depths is good, but not quite as high as the 510 or Vertex 3
Sequential read speed is definitely down from the C300, despite Crucial's claim that random read performance was sacrificed to improve sequential read performance. The m4 so far appears to have better write performance at the sacrifice of read speed. There's much more than meets the eye, let's dig deeper.
