Intel X25-V 40GB Value Performance SATA Solid-State Drive Review


While SSDs are still a fairly new technology, it has certainly come a long way in the last couple of years. The choices in SSDs are increasing and the prices are also decreasing making it possible to…

Intel SSD Toolkit and Optimizer ; Very fast read performance ; Impressive 4KB data block and boot performance ; Competitive retail pricing

Lower larger data block write speeds ; How about a bigger 60GB for the same price

If we learn anything from these benchmarks, it’s that buying an SSD with proper management software to maintain those “new SSD” performance levels is really a huge plus. Many SSDs rely on their own included self cleaning software to manage themselves,...

Intel's X25-V solid-state drive on its own and in RAID


The rise of solid-state drives has been one of the most exciting developments in PC hardware over the last few years. With essentially instantaneous seek times, SSDs can access data an order of magnitude quicker than even the most exotic high-RPM hard...

With a street price hovering around $115, the X25-V is easily one of the most affordable solid-state drives on the market. Whether the drive lives up to its value billing depends entirely on what you, well, value.

Can Intel's second generation SSD steal the performance crown?

Proven controller technology ; Excellent 4k random performance

Mediocre real-world performance ; Limited capacity

Intel X25-V review


The Intel X25-V is one solid state drive (SSD) that can actually call itself affordable. The capacity and performance offered may be lower than the best SSD, but it does have an appeal at the budget end. Compared to ordinary hard disk drives, this SSD...

The performance numbers seen above are good for a solid state drive positioned in the budget space. At a price of £89 the price-per-GB ratio may not be the lowest among SSDs, but the Intel X25-V does happen to be one of the lowest priced SSD drives...

Intel X25-V SSD 40GB review


Intel is better known for its processors than its solid state disks, but the 40GB X25-V is actually the latest in a long line of SSDs from the processor giant. At just £90, it looks cheap but it actually has a high cost per gigabyte of £2.25.

Intel's bargain priced SSD is a false economy. Spend a little more and get a lot more elsewhere.

Intel X25-V 40GB SSD


Being priced low, this solid state drive had to compromise on something, yet the performance and capacity are still acceptable.

Relatively economical pricing ; Faster than HDDs

Drive capacity is just about enough for a boot drive

The term "affordable SSD" would describe the X25-V 40GB drive well. Making high performance available around the Rs. 5k mark, this could well be the tipping point that gets everyone participating in the Solid State Drive revolution.
