Hardware.Info
11 April 2013
  • Excerpt: The Intel 525 series are the mSATA SSDs aimed at Ultrabooks, and we tested the 120 GB model. An mSATA SSD is a great way of improving performance of modern laptops still equipped with a conventional hard disk.

Examining Intel's 525 Series mSATA Solid State Drive

HotHardware
2 April 2013
  • Excerpt: It has been quite a while since we last put an mSATA solid state drive (SSD) under the microscope. It's actually only been about two years, and if you care to jump into our time machine, you can see what we had to say about Intel's 310 Series mSATA SSD in 80GB form. The idea then was the same as it is now -- to offer full-size SSD features and performance in a smaller form factor that can wiggle into increasingly thinner Ultrabooks and mini PCs like Intel's Next Unit of...
  • Pros: Really fast performance, Wide range of capacities, Generous warranty (5 years), 128-bit AES encryption, Built-in safeguards for overheating, Data protection schemes
  • Cons: 30GB drive's write performance is slower than the rest, Relatively expensive, Limited application

The Full Intel SSD 525 Review: 30GB, 60GB, 120GB, 180GB & 240GB Tested

AnandTech
3 February 2013
  • Conclusion: There aren't really any new conclusions to be made here now that we've gone through almost all of the capacities of Intel's SSD 525. While I'd still like to see Intel bring its own 6Gbps controller technology down to the client space, the SF-2281 based Intel SSD 525 should be a good solution for any mSATA client machine facing a typical workload.

Intel SSD 525 Series Full Capacity Roundup - Intel Sweeps mSATA

PC Perspective
31 January 2013
  • Excerpt: It has been just under a year since Intel released their 520 Series SSD , which was their second 6 Gb/sec SATA unit. Sporting a SandForce controller, that release helped bridge a high speed storage gap in their product lineup. One year prior, Intel dabbled in the mSATA form factor, releasing a 310 Series model under that moniker. The 310 showed up here and there, but never really caught on as the physical interface was admittedly before its time.

Intel SSD 525 Review (240GB)

AnandTech
30 January 2013
  • Conclusion: Intel's SSD 525, at least in the 240GB form we reviewed today, is largely an updated, smaller form factor version of the 520 we met last year. The firmware updates Intel put in place on the 525 seem to improve performance over the 520, and the drive does boast lower idle power consumption although higher active power usage compared to its older, larger brother.
