Intel 320 Series 300 GB SSD Review

Rating: 7.5.

There has never been such a wide selection of solid state drives available on the market before from so many different manufacturers. This can make it confusing for some consumers, when it comes to deciding on a purchase. KitGuru spend a lot of time looking at the latest performance SSDs like the Patriot Wildfire and OCZ Vertex 3 Max IOPS, but many people are willing to compromise a little on performance, to save some cash.

Today we are going to look at the 320 Series 300 GB solid state drive from Intel which is aimed at users who need a reliable drive with plenty of capacity … it has been out for a while now, but it still a big seller for the processor giant.

While it doesn’t quite boast the same performance figures as the latest Sandforce drives, the claimed read and write speeds of 270 MB/s and 205 MB/s should satisfy the performance demands for a wide audience.


  • Capacity: 300GB
  • Connectivity: 1 x SATA-II
  • Edition: 320 Series
  • Form Factor: 2.5″
  • Manufacturer: Intel
  • Memory Type: MLC-Flash

    I bought one of these last week, as I always buy Intel. quality is the best.
    I think its great. i would be surprised if anyone could tell the difference in the real world between sata 2 and sata 3 SSD drives.

    Honest review. I think they sold a lot of these, good size. But I agree. its not competitive now on a performance level so the price needs to drop to around £330.

    Can kitguru make a review about reliability problem (like BSOD) affecting latest generation of SSD (SandFroce 2000, Crucial m4, Intel 320 Series) and various fixes they have done until now?
