Excerpt: Earlier this month, Intel launched the SSD 530 series that will take the place of the existing 520 SSDs, and in a way also the 335 series of Intel SSDs. The SSD 530 series is also built around the popular LSI SandForce SF-2281 controller, and like the other 500 series SSDs, you again get five years of warranty. What's different is the use of 20nm flash memory, and that the new SSDs come in different formats: 2.5 inches, mSATA and M.2. We tested the 2.5-inch 240 GB model.
Conclusion: Performance Summary : The 480GB Intel SSD DC S3500 series drive we featured here offered very good performance throughout out testing. Read performance was competitive with all of the other drives we tested in all but the IOMeter benchmarks. Write performance, however, while good, wasn’t quite as high as some competing offerings in the majority of tests.
Pros: Read Performance, Power Loss Data Protection, 5 Year Warranty, Competitive Pricing
Cons: Write Performance Trailed Some Competing Drives
