A Better Alternative.
Crucial’s M225 series solid-state drive is a better alternative to a traditional hard drive in notebook PCs. No moving parts provide for a quieter, cooler, and more durable storage solution designed for the demands of mobility.
Solid-State technology brings a new level of performance and reliability to netbook and notebook storage. With read speeds up to 250MB/s the Crucial M225 series can improve boot and application load times.
The Crucial brand of memory has long been synonymous with reliability and high-performance. Our expertise in NAND process technology enables us to optimize the performance and durability of Crucial™ solid-state drives.
Crucial M225 series employ a standard hard drive interface and dimensions, so it is an easy storage upgrade for most notebooks.
The drive came packed in this small box with a blue and white color scheme. On the back you can read the same specifications that I listed earlier on the page.
Inside the box I found the drive and a small paper with warranty info. The drive itself has an aluminum case with a big sticker on top that describes what drive it is. This drive has the Indlinx controller.
