I have an Intel 530 180 GB SSD smile.gif




I haven't installed it into my system yet but I plan to make an unboxing and benching thread with more pictures. smile.gif

Sup all..

I currently have 2x Intel 520 Series 120GB SSDs installed and the 730 series is being released tomorrow, March 18th. Looking at picking up a 240GB and just curious as to everyone's thoughts on the 730 Series compared to the 530 series SSDs. Are they a worthwhile investment considering my current rig in my sig?

Thanks ahead of time for input/advice. thumb.gif

TBH you probably won't notice the difference between the 520s and the 730.

Maybe I'll just save a chunk of change and go with a 530 Series 240GB then. Unless I can find a 520 series somewhere, which might be a little cheaper. Newegg doesn't seem to sell the 520 series anymore.

I installed the 530 a while ago, and it's subtle, but there are times when I will be running or using a program and I'll say, "Wait a minute, that should've taken a lot longer!" biggrin.gif Been a great SSD for me so far. smile.gif
