The SSD 520 Series (240GB, 2.5" SATA 6Gb/s Solid State Drive) from Intel comes with 240GB capacity giving you the necessary storage for your media and critical documents. With a 550/520MB/s sequential read and write capability you can access and write your data to the drive quickly and efficiently. The SATA 6.0Gb/s interface allows for compatibility with a wide variety of drive enclosures and computer configurations. The increased shock absorption found within this Intel Solid State drive means you can rest assured if you bump the drive your data will remain safe.

Enhanced Read / Write Capabilities
With 550/520MB/s sequential read and write capabilities you can access your data stored within the drive quickly. This fast access allows you to get more done faster. Random read IOPS or (Input/Outputs Per Second) in excess of 50,000 IOPS and random write IOPS in excess of 60,000 allow for more efficient access to the data thus also increasing the read / write capabilities of the drive.
Decreased Latency
With latency read / write readings of 80 and 85 microseconds the time delay for accessing and writing data is nearly unnoticeable.
Shock Absorption
Enhanced shock absorption found within the Intel 520 Series Solid State Drive helps to protect your data in the case of accidental drops or bumps to the hard drive.
