Summary: Intel's 330 Series SSD offers 180 GB of storage capacity, which has the potential to turn into the new sweet spot segment. Nowadays, drives with 120 GB end up being too small for many users, but 240 GB is still too expensive.
Pros: Extra capacity vs 120 GB drives, Low cost per gigabyte, SATA 6 Gbps support, Supports TRIM, 3-year warranty

8 June 2012
Conclusion: For the first few generations of SSD, Intel was popular due to their high-quality, in-house controllers and flash chips (X-25 series, 320 series) as well as using high-quality, third-party controllers for their performance-oriented SSD (510 series, Marvell controller).
Intel 330 Series 120GB SATA 3 SSD Review – LSI SandForce Performance With Unbeatable Value
26 April 2012
Conclusion: The top SSD we have tested to date is the Intel 520 240GB SSD and the Intel 330 definitely seems to follow in it’s footsteps, but at a much lower price point.

Excerpt: Intel has just refreshed its mid-range 330 Series of SSDs - the great-value 120GB version is the first we’ve seen. The headline figure is the price; at £82 for 120GB, this SSD is a great-value 68p per gigabyte.
Excerpt: Når det kommer til SSD er det vanskelig å si annet enn at Intel vet hva de driver med. Selskapet revolusjonerte markedet for de lydløse, ultraraske enhetene i 2008 med sin X25-M, men siden den gang har mye skjedd.
Summary: Autant le passage en RAID 0 des SSD Plextor n'était pas spécialement convainquant, autant ici, nous avons un peu de mieux, et cela pourrait donc justifier l'achat d'un deuxième disque plutôt que de prendre un modèle en 240 Go.
Pros: Performances générales, Amélioration dans certains pole, 120 Go accessible
Conclusion: No entanto, para os usuários que planejam trocar o disco rígido atual por uma unidade SSD, nós estaríamos inclinados a recomendar a versão “Upgrade Bundle” da Kingston HyperX 3K, porque ela torna o processo de “upgrade” mais simples.
