Intel SSD 510 Series 6Gbps SATA Drives Tested 79

MojoKid writes "Intel recently announced its 510 series Solid State Drive products. The new 510 series SSDs build upon Intel's successful X-25M series of drives by offering native support for SATA 6Gbs interface speeds, with maximum reads in the 500MB/s range and write speeds of approximately 315MB/s — huge improvements over the previous generation. The numbers are in and the new Marvell-infused Intel SSD offers impressive performance rivaling other 6Gbps SATA SSDs on the market but not as fast as the recently announced SandForce 2500-based SSDs like the OCZ Vertex 3."

    In my experience, the average RMA turnaround time for the four drives I've so far sent back to OCZ is not quite six weeks. It's not just that they die, it's that they die and the after-sale customer service is atrocious.

    My single experience with getting an Intel SSD replaced was a three day turnaround from the day the defective unit shipped out.
