Intel 320 SSD or Crucial M4 - Page 2

post #11 of 18
It means that Intel old SSD's series live longer than any other SSD company. I don't think any of those companies would be an issue to replace your SSD if your SSD dies.

Just a note.... the Intel 320 is more secure than other SSDs. If you work with sensitive data, then you probably want that.
Once again...

"the third generation Intel SSD would add full disk encryption - making it even better suited for enterprise customers"

The feature is a great addition nonetheless for average customers.

i think the intel g3 also uses a high power capacitor to be able to write cached data in case of power failure

Hi guys,

I was extremely happy with my Corsair F120 drive until it died without warning, not even detectable by the BIOS after 2 months of relatively light use. Obviously not much chance of data recovery when the PC can't even see it.

The distributor in Australia has had the drive for a week and a half and there's no ETA on a replacement unit as they were out of stock. If it goes on much longer I'll start demanding a refund.

My next SSD will be an Intel drive (the 320 is supposed to be the most reliable). We've had none of our X25-M's fail at work.

Regards,
Michael.

I've also read not sure where, but on several sites, that Intel's SSDs are more reliable than other brands.

On the other hand, and talking about those percentages.. its useless unless you know the amount of units sold, no? I mean, OCZ may have a percentage above 2%, but I guess OCZ has sold a lot more of SSDs than Intel, hasnt it?

Anyway, I found ocz, corsair, mushkin, crucial and intel are doing nice products all of them. Every brand with its pros and cons.

I bought my M4 directly from Crucial online store as they have nice prices compared to where I live.

"The Marvell 9174 is the same controller Micron uses in its C400 and the same controller in Corsair’s Performance Series 3 SSDs. In fact, I recently received a Corsair P3. Pop off the lid and you’ll see the very same controller Intel is using in the 510:"

I realize this is an older thread, and has been necro'd, but I wanted to correct this information.

The 320 and the Crucial M4 do NOT use the same controller (not sure about the NAND.) The 320 uses a controller made by Intel (almost identical to the G2 Intel series) and the Crucial uses a Marvell controller.

This poster is confusing the Intel 320 and 510 series. (The 510 uses a Marvell controller)

Olrait: I doubt OCZ has sold more SSDs than Intel, but I may be wrong. Either way, a percentage is still a percentage. And from everything I have seen - Intel drives are heads and shoulders above the rest in terms of reliability.

Thats what I said; first line.

And (also said) I do NOT know if OCZ has sold more or less than Intel, was just a guess. But I think, as happens in vga's brands world, those percentages should been calculated from the same amount of units per brand (dont know if its already calculated like that..). But well, just an opinion, no problem at all, and sorry for the little off topic.
