Intel 730 Series SSD 480GB Review

 

Intel has largely been absent from the high-end SSD market for many years, which has been a real head-scratcher, considering the original X-25M's dominance back in 2009. That all changes this month with the release of its all-new 730 series SSD. It...

Intel SSD 730 Series review

 

Intel's latest 730 Series solid-state drive (SSD) is the first from the company that comes with a factory-overclocked SSD controller and NAND bus speeds. However, performance is not its strongest suit, but rather, its endurance.

The Intel SSD 730 Series has a high endurance rating and comes with a five-year warranty. The drive offers a huge boost in performance compared with regular hard drives and can handle RAID configurations.

The new drive doesn't support encryption, and its performance isn't the best among similarly priced SSDs.

At launch, the new Intel SSD 730 Series makes a very good internal drive choice for your computer, but it'll become a better value when its street price drops below the current suggested retail price.

Intel SSD 730 Series 240GB

 

In my testing, the new SSD was fast, though far from the fastest I've seen. It supports RAID configurations, and when used in RAID 0 its performance was basically doubled. But that's true for most, if not all, RAID-enabled SSDs. The drive has about the...

Intel 730 SSD Review

 

In the first two generations of SSDs one of the stand out models was Intels X25-M. Using their own controller it offered competitive performance and showed us just how reliable an SSD could be. In fact our original sample from June 2009 is still...

Intel SSD 730 Series review

 

The Intel 730 Series SSD has strong performance but is expensive

The Intel 730 Series has reasonable performance, but is outclassed by the Best Buy-winning Crucial M550, which is faster and cheaper than Intel's drive. If you're looking for the best SSDs then check out our Best SSD 2015 buying guide.

Intel 730 'Jackson Ridge' Raid 0 Review

 

Over a month ago we got to sample Intel's latest SSD. Now we see how it performs when a second identical drive is added to make a Raid 0 volume.

Blistering read speed ; Highly durable and sustained write speed ; Metal casing

Mediocre burst Write speed

Matching up a pair of already quick SSD's was always going to show massive leaps in performance. Read speeds almost topped 1000 MB/s while write speeds also showed a fair increase in speed. The blistering pace of the read speed was however surpassed by...

After last year's release of the DC S3700 series SSD's, it was only a matter of time before Intel allowed their LSI built, in house designed X25
