Excerpt: Intel’s 520 series SSD is one of the fastest solid state drives that we’ve tested to date. But all this performance does come at a price, and even for enthusiasts, it’s quite a steep buy. In order to fulfill the need for cheaper, high-performance SSDs, Intel has now launched the new 335 series that uses the smaller 20nm NAND flash memory.
Summary: It’s priced much lower than what we’re used to seeing from Intel, however, which is a step in the right direction but ultimately not enough to move the needle too much on our verdict chart. We’re not hating on this drive, but suffice to say we’re more excited about Intel’s next drive, which will hopefully use a new iteration of its SandForce controller.
Pros: Respectable performance across the board; relatively inexpensive
Cons: Not faster than previous drives; price should be even lower to be competitive; 9.5” tall
This solid state drive is fast and will upgrade your computer noticeably if you're used to slow hard drives

Summary: The Intel SSD 335 uses the latest in flash storage technology and it's a great little drive if you fancy a speed boost. It will noticeably improve not only the performance of a typical laptop, but also its battery life. If you want to use it in a desktop PC, you can make use of the mounting kit that ships with it, too. All up, a worthy upgrade.
Pros: Fast sequential performance, A beneficial upgrade for a laptop
Cons: The relatively large capacity may still not be enough for some users
