Right now everyone seems to be recommending the M4s with the new 0009 firmware giving it a significant performance boost! Im going to be ordering one soon, check out the 009 firmware thread lots of people have bought these drives in the last few days.

The 128GB version has faster write speeds than the 64GB version (64GB only has a write speed of 110MB/s, where as the 128GB version has write speeds of 200MB/s). Both versions have the same read speeds.
