Crucial M225 256Gb SSD

This M225 solid state drive from Crucial comes in it’s 256Gb form. Obviously an SSD of this capacity is not cheap but the chances are, it’ll be the only one you need in your system. This, of course, aims the M225 nicely towards laptop/netbook owners who just want to rip out their old mechanical drives and whack in something a little bit slicker.

At the time of writing, this M225 could be had for a few pennies over £450, making the cost per Gb of this beast an incredibly respectable £1.76. This is of course considerably more than you’d spend on the equivalent platter-based mechanical drive, but in SSD terms, it’s actually very good value..

Performance-wise, the M225 achieved some very respectable scores.
