Examining Intel's 525 Series mSATA Solid State Drive

HotHardware
2 April 2013
  • Conclusion: Performance Summary: Intel's SSD 525 Series mSATA drives worked as advertised, and that's no small feat considering Intel is promoting "great performance" in a package that's a fraction of the size of a 2.5-inch SSD. All five capacities we tested -- 30GB, 60GB, 120GB, 180GB, and 240GB -- turned in fast synthetic benchmark results across the board, which translated into speedy real-world performance.
  • 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

Intel 525 Multi-Capacity SSD Review – mSATA SSDs Just Became Mainstream

thessdreview.com
3 February 2013
  • Conclusion: It was only a few years back that we did our part in introducing the world to solid state drives and I still remember the initial reaction as being, ” No way!  They will never cut it and you’ve lost your marbles if you think they will!”  That was quite common back then, and should have been because the SSD revolution was tarred with a number of issues, these of course being lack of capacity, unbelievable pricing that averaged around $2500, and lack of stability with the...

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.
