|RamakataO||Boot time can be compared on verbatim copies only. Any minor software difference or even physical file ordering change can issue noticeable boot time change|

Reliability I wouldn't worry about the 840 pro but the M4 has a proven history of reliability (it's a very solid drive).

Here are a couple of videos illustrating this:
Crucial M4: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aACDtbh
840 Pro: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=khSJbe4
Both drives boot in around 8 seconds from Windows first logo to Desktop.
As an average user, you would not notice any difference on boot times as there virtually isn't one.

Performance comparison graphs (I think the model reviewed is the 250 GB one).

Done. Just bought the Crucial M4 256 GB from the Ebay deal.

I do - updated the intel chipset drivers, intel raid drivers, did the registry tweaks - still freezes in Chrome often.
Thinking of getting the m4 Crucial to replace my intel 330.

The only things on my SSD are the OS and apps, which I'm not really worried about losing. Even if the SSD crashed, they could all be easily re-installed.

Posted these questions on another thread, but...
Can one partition this SSD for dual-boot service(I was thinking half and half) without shortening the life span of the drive? (XP and Windows 7)
What kind of solutions are people using to protect against SSD failure? I'm scared of losing everything…the OS, downloaded games, etc… Are people RAID1-ing their SSD with a HDD? Does this impact gaming or other performance, especially if the drive one is RAID1ing to is of a larger size?
