    Oops, I forgot about msata. Yeah, no msata for our machines.
    The Crucial M500 has a new technology that haven't had any reviews yet. Wait for a while if you're eyeing for that. On the other hand, the 840 pro is stellar.

    I have a Crucial M4 on my laptop and a Plextor M3S on my desktop. You really won't notice any difference when it comes to day-to-day tasks. I reckon you are not much into games, so I can say that any SSD of this generation would be best for you. But I understand that if you are buying now, might as well buy the best already.

    After reading Anand's review, it would seem the m500 is mostly storage at the expense of latest performance. I am not for sure but you might be better off with a faster OS SSD and replace the ODD with a fast 1 TB HDD. Maybe someone else with a better understanding can help with this, but it seems it is a midrange performer with large storage space. Maybe not so much latest and greatest.

    That makes sense because of how large the storage is. I agree, it would be wiser to have a faster OS SSD and replace the ODD with a fast HDD; this is exactly what I did with my NP8130. M4 with Seagate Momentus 7200.4 500GB. My system is blazing fast with this SSD.

    Becuase I didn't feel the necessary upgrade. I have the Plextor M3S in my desktop which is one top performer also.

    Me and Abidderman were actually referring to trvlbug to get a faster OS SSD and replace the ODD with a fast HDD. I was simply agreeing to what Abidderman suggested and that is directed to trvlbug. He is just buying a new SSD, so he might as well get the fastest SSD. I am not talking for myself regarding this. Yes? :)

    lol, nice one :p gotcha :)

    reading reviews on the M500, those prices are indeed tempting!

    especially considering all those enterprise extras they put in there: hardware encryption, automated temperature throttling, extra capacitors against data loss in case of a power outage, etc.

    not to mention that sddreview.com puts the M500 right between the OCZ Vector and the Samsung 840 Pro, basically making it the no. 2 top performing SSD.... almost sounds too good to be true :D

    just checked the prices here in germany: about 330€ for the 480GB one and 533€ for the 960GB model :) but i expect those prices to drop significantly once general availability is ensured
