The perfect blend of cutting edge performance, Intel quality, and value.

Ideal for price-conscious enthusiasts looking to upgrade a desktop or notebook PC, the Intel® SSD 330 Series brings SATA 6Gb/s transfer rates to the Intel® Solid-State Drive 300 Family. Offered in the most popular capacities (60GB, 120GB and 180GB), the Intel® SSD 330 Series boosts overall system performance and responsiveness for a broad range of applications.

Technology and Performance.

The SATA 6Gb/s interface doubles the data transfer rate from its SATA 3Gb/s predecessor, powering the Intel® SSD 330 Series to blazing fast sequential reads up to 500MB/s to handle your most demanding applications with ease. The end result: a vastly more responsive PC with quick operating system (OS) boot and application load times, significantly out-performing a typical consumer hard disk drive (HDD).

Quality and Reliability You Can Trust.

The Intel® SSD 330 Series is backed by a 3-year limited warranty and based on 25nm Multi-Level Cell (MLC) Intel® NAND Flash Memory and validated for three years of worry-free useful life.

4* Nvidia motherboard owners beware
Reviewed by Andrew H on 01/12/2012
Rather than build a whole new PC I decided to give my current one a bit of a boost with an SSD.
The kit contains all the hardware you'll need for a desktop installation although you need to download the Intel Toolbox and data migration tool.
I noticed straight away a significant improvement in boot times and general snappiness compared to the old hard drive.
I then found I couldn't use the Intel SSD Toolbox because it gave an error message about being unable to communicate with the drive. I tried updating my SATA controller drivers at which point I noticed the drive was running at SATA I 1.5Gbps transfer rate despite my motherboard being capable of 3Gbps. It turns out this is a widespread problem between some SSDs and NVidia nForce SATA controllers, even with the latest drivers.
It looks like I won't realise the full potential of this drive in my current setup but it still makes things much faster.
