Product information: V4 256GB 2.5" SATA-II Solid State Hard DriveThe right drive
If you bought a computer before 2011 and you're looking to upgrade to an SSD, the Crucial® v4 SSD might be just what you're looking for. Designed to deliver substantial performance for mainstream computers, the Crucial v4 SSD was created to complement the abilities of your system. Since computers made before 2011 typically have slower data transfer capabilities than newer systems, they're best-suited for the Crucial v4 SSD, which was built with these transfer speeds in mind.
The right performance
The Crucial v4 SSD delivers everything you've come to expect from our award-winning line of SSDs: faster read/write speeds, faster boot times, faster application loading times, and increased reliability compared to traditional hard drives. We've taken all of our SSD expertise and fine-tuned it to deliver powerful performance for mainstream computers at an affordable price.
The right price
Why pay for performance you can't use? To complement your system, we thought it made sense to deliver a mainstream solution that would save you money while maintaining a high level of SSD performance. Since the Crucial v4 SSD doesn't include pricey features that cater to high-performance systems, we're able to offer a high-quality product at an affordable price.
