Intel 330 Series 120GB review


Intel has just refreshed its mid-range 330 Series of SSDs - the great-value 120GB version is the first we've seen.

Strong performance, a great price and a useful upgrade kit, but other drives are quicker for the same money

SSD's are fantasic but I always recommend having at least one mechanical HDD in your pc as well if nothing more than for storage. I currently run: Two of these SSDs in RAID 0 (windows and games) Two WD Black 1TB 7200rpm drives in RAID 1 (storage and...

I have two of these bad boys in a RAID 0 configuration and my read speed is over 1gb/s. Write time on these particular drives is not nearly that high, but I want to say it's around 600mb/s in RAID 0. They have been solid and reliable which is more than...

Small, not a lot of storage space, but for me that isn't as bad of an issue because of the RAID 0. Newer versions are available that have more storage for about the same price that I purchased these for over a year ago

Amazing speed. My first SSD was a sandisk and i thought it was great, but it crashed and I went with Intel. Love it

With Intel you alway get what you pay for. They are not the cheapest but quality is there. This SSD paired with a i7-4770k at stock speed 8 seconds boot! Compared to a Patriot and a Crucial, there is no question as which is the fastest/best quality!

Blazing Fast ; High quality ; Good software support

Great SSD!


I bought this about a year ago while building my mom's PC and all she does is browse the web. My little sister plays Minecraft and everything loads incredibly quick! Prior to that, they were using some 5400 RPM 20 GB hard drive and this really reduced...

Fast ; Was well priced for the space at the time ; Intel quality ; Came with everything I needed to put it in a case with no 2.5" bays

My First Choice


With laptops failing often within a year, I tell all my customers to keep their important data files on an external drive, server, or in their cloud storage. Then I offer to speed up their laptop or desktop with this drive. Desktops can always have a...

Speed, brand, SandForce Controller, and sale priced at just $59!!! Used in both desktops and laptops without a problem. Over 10 purchased in the past year and no bricks or failures so far

None so far, but price has jumped ; Avoid the Intel controller found in SSD 330s that brick ; This SSD uses a Sandforce controller from LSI

Very worthwhile upgrade


I'd recommend using this only for OS partitions to significantly decrease your boot time. (If it's faster game loading you're after, you'll probably want more than 60GB.) For best results, put your swap file/partition on a separate, traditional hard...

Can reduce OS boot times by more than 50 ; Silent ; Intel reliability

60GB is not a lot of space in this day and age, even for just OS partitions ; SSDs are still much more expensive per GB than traditional hard drives

Intel 330 Series Maple Crest SSD


Very fast, came with a sticker and 3.5" mounting hardware, great warranty. Fantastic price

Has a possible compatibility issue with Windows 8 but that is Microsoft's fault

Boot Drive Success


Was easier than I expected to be using this instead of a mechanical HDD. Once Windows "failed to start properly", but windows repaired it automatically. Cant prove that is the drive though. reboots in 13 seconds. Gets to the Login screen before my TV...

Wish it was cheaper
