The Intel SSD 313 Series combines 25nm single-level cell (SLC) Intel NAND Flash Memory technology with our innovative high-performance controller to deliver a highperformance, high-endurance solid-state drive (SSD) targeted for solutions that use an SSD as a cache for hard disk drives - such as systems with Intel Smart Response Technology - or for high-performance embedded solutions.
Awesome for SRT
This review is from: Intel 313 Series Hawley Creek SSDSA2VP024G301 2.5" 24GB SATA II SLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Pros: It's made for being used as a SRT cache drive. The SLC type SSD has ten time the longevity as MLC and better performance.
Cons: Cost and uses SATA 3GBs interface. I had to drill custom sized holes in my case's hard drive tray to mount this. Installing Windows under UEFI and formatting the HD as GPT was a pain and it took me three day to get it all sorted out. The 20GB drive has better write speed than 24GB so may be better choice.
Other Thoughts: I mated this with a 3TB hard drive. Unbelievable speed in everything I do. With SRT my system just sees one single 3TB hard drive as my primary HD. Adding SRT cache (short of only using SSD) is the one single thing that will speed your system the most. If you want over 2TB as main boot drive it has to be formatted GPT after you boot to UEFI. This requires making a EFI bootable Windows setup boot USB thumb drive.
