With M4 do you mean the Crucial M4?
I bought an OCZ Agility3 120Gb SATAIII. I found a good price on amazon..and since i don't use my computer for gaming or graphics..i thought I won't see any difference

So ok. I'll try the SW "EZ Gig IV" ..in case of problem I'll erase the SSD doing everything again with the SW you suggested

I found and installed Paragon Drive Copy 11. It too has Migrate. Which one would be better?

Sorry, I thought you are looking at a M4. I only have OCZ Vertex, never tried an Agility.

I guess is not a problem. Seeing benchmark seems the only difference is the maximum IOPS reached. Same processors, same firmwares within the same family..

The video makes the point. Next time use a tripoid and make sure no light is shining onto the screen. Nice desktop background picture.

Here is a capture I made a while ago loading Windows 8 in Virtual Box. The host Win7 is on a Crucial M4 SSD. This is real time: Start Win8 in vBox1.wmv - YouTube
