Intel SSD 520 series 240GB Review

Tech2
6 April 2012
  • Summary: Priced at $509 (Rs. 24,900), which makes it slightly cheaper than the Plextor PX-256M2S that we reviewed a while back. It’s still an expensive solution, though and will probably only appeal to enthusiasts. If you’re looking for a boot drive, then you don’t need this kind of capacity, you’re better off with a smaller capacity SSD.

  • Conclusion: With our test unit for the Intel 520 series 240GB SSD came a full upgrade kit as well. You have a 3.5-inch bay with multiple screws and a molex-to-SATA power cable. Manuals and software mini-disc are also part of the package.

Intel SSD 520 Series 240GB Review

TechSpot
6 February 2012
  • Conclusion: The SSD 510 Series came about last year using a Marvell controller, making it the first Intel SSD able to utilize the SATA 6Gb/s interface. However with the exceptional Crucial m4 on the picture (using the same Marvell chip), we didn't care much for the SSD 510 Series. Today’s pricing puts the 128GB m4 at just $177 , which works out to be $1.38 per gigabyte.
