Intel Solid State Drives (Intel SSDs) represent a revolutionary breakthrough that delivers a giant leap in storage performance. The high-performance storage for notebook and desktop PCs, Intel X25-M, is now made on 34nm NAND flash memory featuring the Intel Solid State Drive (Intel SSD) Toolbox. Intel Solid State Drives are designed to satisfy the most demanding gamers, media creators, and technology enthusiasts. These new drives bring a high level of performance and reliability to notebook and desktop PC storage, at a fraction of the cost of the previous generation of Intel SSD products.

  • newegg Wait less. Do more Why wait for a traditional hard disk drive to spin up? Unlike traditional hard disk drives, Intel SSDs have no moving parts, resulting in a quiet, cool, highly rugged storage solution that also offers faster system responsiveness. And for laptop PCs, the lower power needs of Intel SSDs translate to longer battery life and lighter notebooks. Higher performance with more durability means you can be truly mobile with confidence.
  • newegg Better by design Based on industry-leading compute-quality 34nm NAND flash memory manufacturing processes, Intel X25-M mainstream SSDs feature native SATA II interface with an advanced architecture employing 10 parallel NAND flash channels equipped with multi-level cell NAND flash memory to deliver outstanding performance. With powerful Native Command Queuing to enable up to 32 concurrent operations, Intel X25-M SSDs deliver higher input/output per second and throughput performance than other SSDs on the market today – and drastically outperform traditional hard disk drives. These drives 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 Intel SSD Toolbox with Intel SSD Optimizer The Intel SSD Toolbox with Intel SSD Optimizer provides a set of applications to easily manage the health and optimize the performance of your Intel SSD. The Intel SSD Toolbox includes a powerful set of management, information, and diagnostic tools, and is designed to work best with 34nm Intel SSDs. The Intel SSD Optimizer utilizes the new ATA Data Set Management Command (Trim Attribute) to help maintain your SSDs performance at "fresh-out-of-the-box" levels, and is specifically designed to run with Microsoft Windows 7. The Intel SSD Optimizer also works with Microsoft Windows Vista and XP operating systems as well.

Fast and easy install

Pros: Fast, off to win 7 pro fully up and wirelessly connected to the internet in 1 minute on a HP DM4 laptop.
battery life extended

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Pulled out the original 500GB drive in my HP DM4 placed it in a EAGLE ET-CS2BSU2-BK 2.5" USB 2.0 External Enclosure w/ USB cable which works great. placed the Intel SSD in the computer, buttoned it all back up. turned it on, inserted Win 7 pro. no install problems, easier than a HDD. battery life approximately doubled, I am in school and I can have the laptop running for three classes, then I go to work and still use it. I do not bring the power supply / charger with me anymore.

Great Drive

Pros: Great drive. Trouble free performance. Quiet, low power consumption and runs cool. Very fast!! Intel's SSD tool box with optimizer allows to manually trim drive. Very pleased.

Cons: Relatively expensive.

Other Thoughts: Verify you need this form factor. I use this 7mm height in a laptop.

WOW

Pros: FAST, FAST, FAST!!!
Did I mention that it's FAST!!!
Low power
can fit 7mm bays
Dead silent (of course)
Oh yeah, its also FAST!

Cons: Price is crazy expensive.
Costs more than the netbook I wanted to install it in!

Is not made of bacon or beer.

Other Thoughts: I expected it to be fast, but WOW. Even I was surprised at how much of a difference it made. With Kubuntu 10.10, GRUB to desktop in less than 15 seconds and that's without doing ANY optimizations (7200RPM drive took ~35 seconds after being optimized.) Gimp opens in less than 2 seconds and OpenOffice Writer in about 4. I will be buying more of these once the price drops down a bit more. Simply Amazing... I just hope the performance doesn't degrade with use.
