Intel Solid-State Drives (Intel SSDs) just got better. The next generation Intel SSD 320 Series offers built-in data protection features, better performance, larger capacities and more value for your money. Built with 25 nanometer (nm) compute-quality Intel NAND Flash Memory, the Intel SSD 320 Series accelerates PC performance where it matters most.
Pros: This is a pretty fast SATA 2 drive for older systems. It comes with the latest firmware. Mine Was made on Feb 16 2012 so I knew it was the latest SATA 2 drive. A lot of these SATA 2 drives are old and die easily because they were the originals. Get SATA 3 if you can. No issues with installing windows on it. Scored 7.4 in Windows 7. My SATA 3 is 7.9 for comparison, but its not Intel.
Cons: I couldnt tell much about what this drive was or what the differences were with it. All I know is that it is a little faster and much newer than the other Intels. Doesnt come with any adapters to fit it in a case and wont fit without one unless your case holds SSDs. It came with a nifty sticker and that was it. 5 year warranty based on use, so be careful about Intel warranty.
Other Thoughts: You may have to remove all other hard drives while installing windows on this. But thats only if you are have issues installing Windows.
