The M550 SSDs update Crucial's mainstream range and bring improved performance with them.

While the NAND has stayed the same, Crucial's upgraded controller and cache along with its firmware tweaks has resulted in a drive that maintains the numerous neat features of the

Crucial M550 (256GB) Review and Ratings

 

The M550 is a strong competitor to Samsung's stellar SSD 840 EVO. It's fast and affordable, though Samsung and Intel SSDs have better software, and the EVO costs a bit less as a bare drive.

Speedy sequential-read speeds ; Fast small-file read speeds ; Available in capacities up to 1TB

Pricier, at this writing, than Samsung’s competing SSD 840 EVO drive ; No software or setup guide in the box

Crucial’s M550 isn’t the very fastest drive, or close to the cheapest, but it’s a very good balance of the two that would be easy to recommend to just about all users if it weren’t for a couple of quibbles.

Crucial M550 1TB

 

Quick & stable.

I brought a couple of hybrid drives at the same time and configured them in RAID 0. The speed of this set up isn't noticeably slower than the SSD but is about 1/8th of the price per Tb. I haven't bench-marked either solution, it's just how it feels to...
