    Hello


    Intel have just released the all new 330 series of SSD. Based on the SF2281 controller like its bigger brother the 520 series, the 330 series provides nearly all of the 520 series performance but at a fraction of the cost!

    These drives the Sync NAND rather than the cheaper Async NAND which means you have Vertex/Force GT like performance for just a few £££s more than the Force 3/Agility 3 making these epic value!

    Take a look below for details!


    Stock should land on the 14th of April :)

    So questions questions:

    - What's the difference between these and the 520 series?
    - Will there be a 240GB version?
    - Why is intel the only manufacturer that seems to do 180GB drives?
    - Is it worth upgrading to one of these from an X-25M 80GB (am i likely to notice an increase in speed loading Windows, apps, games, etc.)?

    120gb for 110 is pretty decent

    As big as you can afford, trust me :) I used to have an 80Gb SSD and when I first bought it I thought, 80Gb is more than enough.

    It never was :)

    I think the 180GB 520 still represents better value for money with the current cashback etc.

    How does this compare the vertex 4? Would the ocz be worth the extra money?

    I'm really tempted :D

    Interestingly the Vertex has increased its' guarantee, presumably to compete with the 520's whilst these 330's have gone the other way, down to 3 years.
