Intel Extreme SATA Solid-State Drive offers extreme performance, reliability, and power savings for servers, storage and workstations. High random read and write performance includes 35,000 IOPS (4KB random read) and 3,300 IOPS (4KB random write), which combines with an active power of 2.4W to deliver the highest IOPS per watt. And with up to 250 MB/s sequential read speeds and up to 170 MB/s sequential write speeds, the Intel X25-E Extreme SSDs will benefit those intense computing workloads.

  • newegg Reduce your Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) Unlike traditional hard disk drives, Intel X25-E Extreme SSDs have no moving parts, resulting in a quiet, cool storage solution that also offers significantly higher performance than traditional server drives. Compared with high-RPM hard disk drives, these SSDs can handle the same server workload in less space, with no cooling requirements and lower power consumption. All these benefits will translate to a tangible reduction in your TCO.
  • newegg Better by Design Intel X25-E Extreme SATA Solid-State Drive features native SATA interface with an advanced architecture employing 10 parallel NAND flash channels equipped with single-level cell NAND flash memory for even greater overall performance and reliability. With powerful Native Command Queuing to enable up to 32 concurrent operations, these Intel SSDs deliver higher Input/Output Operations per Second and throughput performance than other Intel SSDs on the market today - and drastically outperform traditional hard disk drives. They also feature low write amplification and a unique wear-leveling design for higher reliability, meaning Intel drives not only perform better - they last longer.
  • newegg Validated and tested by Intel, on Intel All Intel X25-E Extreme SATA SSDs are tested and validated on the latest Intel-based server and workstation platforms, for your peace of mind.

5 out of 5 eggsI have four of these! I love them! Almost six years now and none have failed!

Pros: I had purchased my first Intel X25-E 64GB almost six years ago. I installed it in a Dell XPS-410 desktop PC. Outragious? Yes, I know, but ho cares? I was so impressed by the speed that I added another not too long after to run two of them in Raid 0 giving a 120GB-equivalent ultra fast hard drive. You want speed from a hard drive? These will give you speed. And I've never had one fail yet in nearly six years! They open applications, even Microsoft Office just about instantly! These days I have four of these Intel X25-E drives. I had paid a bit more than $700 for the first one years ago which I purchased brand new. I was like WOW at the time. I was in love and almost slept with the darn thing when it came in! I had never paid that much money for a hard drive before, but if we live once THEN LIVE and be thankful is my motto! The other three X25-E drives were purchased used and I've never had a problem yet with any of them. The last one was purchased for only $60 after making an offer to the online seller! I can't mention where, but you can figure. Not bad $725 down to $60? The drives I purchased used probably had high writes when purchased, but even so these don't seem any slower than the first one I purchased. These drives are super fast and have proven to be reliable to me and long-lasting as well! I mean these Intel SLC SSD drives were designed for use in enterprise servers, right? It only makes sense they'd be long-lasting, ultra fast and reliable when used in home PCs and laptops! I'm running two in my Dell desktop PC and the other two are installed in older laptops I have. I'm still very happy with these drives. I don't need a larger hard drive than 64GB in my laptops. The best thing I love about these Intel SLC drives is that they never require defragmenting! In fact they say to NEVER defrag a solid state (SSD) drive or doing so would shorten its' life.

Cons: The price of these Intel SSC drives used to be crazy high, but the prices are down for these especially if you buy used.

Other Thoughts: I'm anxious to see how many more years I can get out of these four Intel X25-E SLC 64GB drives.

5 out of 5 eggsDon't actually own

Pros: As someone previously complained of, the lack of TRIM on this drive will likely be negligible to the longevity of the drive. Because this drive is SLC flash memory, and that's where you're paying the premium, the voltage tolerance within the memory is much higher, meaning it takes many, many more erase cycles to degrade the memory as compared to MLC. I don't know the hard information, but I'd be willing to bet that even without trim, the drive will last significantly longer than an MLC drive, insofar as the memory lifespan itself is concerned.

Cons: Would like to see the industry shift focus to SLC drives, I don't want a high performance obscenely expensive SSD if the memory will wear out in a couple years of heavy use max. Stop all this MLC bull, I'd happily pay the extra premium if it means my drive will in all probability last 25+ years.

3 out of 5 eggsSpend Your Money on a HDD

Pros: SLC rather than MLC. Still a 7.7 user experience in Windows.

Cons: Does NOT support TRIM (which means it will degrade over time). Not that you can find that info easily on Also, only SATA II (3gb) not the new SATAIII (6 Gb). No cable or instructions or anything in the box. NOT RETURNABLE.

Other Thoughts: If you need to flash the firmware do so first, because it erases the drive (from what I read; but mine came with firmware actually newer than what was available on the Intel support website). Since I have an AMD board, the Intel tools do not work. And Intel's site's "determine what drivers I need" crashes my PC. Have to use AHCI in BIOS for the drive, so could not also use RAID on my board too. RAID also an issue for the card.

5 out of 5 eggsFast and efficient

Pros: -SLC technology with very fast read and write times

-low power consumption

-rugged, good for on-the-go computing

Cons: -expensive

-not a whole lot of space for the cost (compared to MLC type SSD's)

Other Thoughts: i own 4 SSD units, 1 is intel, 2 are OCZ and the last is a SaberTooth. 3 out of 4 are SLC type memory which i find to be quite superior to MLC if very fast read/write are neccesary.

If I were to buy another SSD today and price didnt matter i would choose either Intel or OCZ.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat drive in MBP

Pros: Start up, shut down, sleep, and wake times are negligible.

Applications: open and close in seconds, compression and extraction, encoding; everything rips with this drive.

Battery life: not significantly longer but I imagine it must be somewhat longer due to the decreased power-draw

Heat & Noise: drive generates much less heat and noise than a conventional spinning disk

Data security: SLC means I probably will replace the drive before it fails. Dropping my laptop (I'm clumsy) doesn't result in a fear of data loss.

Cons: It's small! 64GB is simply not enough for everything. No worries, though. I replaced my SuperDrive with a 750GB data drive.

Price, obviously.

I got this drive for a bargain price -- I would have never purchased it for a personal laptop otherwise. I bought my girlfriend a WD SSD for about $200 and it performs very nicely, too.

This drive is better suited in RAID driving some seriously heavy database.
