Intel 320 Series SSD 300 GB

  • Summary: Intel's 320 Series SSD is best compared to the last generation Sandforce SF-1200 drives. The drive offers slightly better performance at a similar price point, but this is not enough to compete with Sandforce's latest SF-2200 controller. One reason is the old Intel SSD controller, another is the lack of support for the new SATA 6 Gbps interface.
  • Pros: 5 year warranty, Free SSD Migration software available from Intel's website, Supports TRIM, Nice looking, rugged metal case
  • Cons: Reliability issues, Only average performance, No support for SATA 6 Gbps, High price

  • Pros: Increased security features. Inexpensive compared with other recent drives.
  • Cons: Lacks support for 6Gbps SATA.

  • Summary: Overall the Intel 320 is an easy drive to recommend. It may lack the headline grabbing sequential transfer rates of the 510 series, but in other respects the drive is a match for its more illustrious and expensive stable mate. As with other Marvell based drives, the 510 series scales with capacity, so the 250GB version of that drive is considerably faster.
  • Pros: - Amazing small file read performance, - Useful bundle of accessories, - Great software toolbox, - Peerless compatibility and reliability
  • Cons: - Performance of the latest SandForce drives is far higher

  • Summary: The Intel SSD 320 returns Intel to its rightful place amongst the performance leaders in the mainstream SSD category.
