The 300GB SSD 320 Series 2.5" SATA MLC Internal Drive, featuring 25nm NAND flash memory, read speeds of up to 270 MB/s, and write speeds of up to 205 MB/s, provides enhanced computing performance. AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) 128-bit encryption uses advanced encryption technologies that keep your data secure even in the event of theft or loss of your computer. The SSD uses an array of surplus NAND flash, and saves all cached data that is being written, to prevent data loss in case the system shuts down unintentionally.

Native Command Queuing supports up to 32 operations at a time. Low write amplification and a unique wear-leveling design help provide enhanced reliability. Intel Solid-State Toolbox with Intel Solid-State Drive Optimizer and System Configuration Tuner features a set of management, information, and diagnostic tools that help improve performance. The Intel Data Migration Software simplifies installation, and transfer of data from a hard drive or SSD to any Intel SSD.

      Comments about Intel 300GB SSD 320 Series 2.5" SATA MLC Internal Drive:

      run intel's ssd toolbox software to tune your system.

      The Intel Data Migration software and included cable made the replacment surprisingly easy.

      Hint: if your laptop is doesn't have USB 3.0 but does have a Expresscard slot, spend the $20 - $30 to get an express card usb 3.0 port...the cloning process is much faster and you'll have many uses for usb 3.0 anyway.

      Also, my system stuttered from time to time under load until I ran the SSD Toolbox software and upgraded the firmware.

      Of course, you'll never look back once upgrading to a quality SSD. Intel is still the only vendor I trust at this point. Everyone has had firmware problems requiring updates. Intel has had fewer....it's still new technology, especially when dropping into an older system.

            Comments about Intel 300GB SSD 320 Series 2.5" SATA MLC Internal Drive:

            I use 300GB SSD 320 Series to replace 7200 RPM harddisk on my HP TM2 . And the result is awesome. Migrating data from old hdd to 300GB SSD 320 Series is very easy using data migration software provided by manucfaturer. All partitions including pre-OS and recovery was migrated smoothly. No problem was found.

            After replacing the harddisk with this product, my laptop is very responsive. Booting is fast, wake up time from sleep only takes about 5 sec. And hibernating process is about 20 seconds. Running application is also fast, 'though memory and processor utilization is quie high. Totally different experience I have found when I use this product.

            Something that I think the manufacturer should do is to activate encryption on this product not from BIOS since not all laptops, including mine, support ATA/drive password in BIOS setting. Yes, this product needs ATA/drive password in BIOS level to enable encryption which is very useful when your laptop is stolen or lost to protect personal data.

            All and all, what I can tell is this product is great and really makes a difference.
