Hello Notebook Forums members! We've been very fortunate in recent months for several opportunities to win some great hardware, and we're not slowing down yet! Intel would once again love to offer our members a chance to win some hardware in exchange for providing input on their product lines.
Intel has passed on the following info about their 330 Series SSDs:
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).
