Intel 520 Series Cherryville SSDSC2CW240A3K5 240GB SATA III SSD
While more known for processors and motherboards than anything else, Intel still makes a mean SSD, and while their true performance SSD capable of read speeds nearing 1GB/s costs several thousand dollars, the 520 Series Cherryvill SSD is still a formidable performance drive. The 2.5-inch drive at a 240GB capacity offers a nice middle-of-the-road price and capacity for those who don't need extreme capacities. Still, the drive doesn't sacrifice in speed, offering read and write speeds up to 550MB/s and 520MB/s respectively at SATA III. To top it off, Intel includes an extended 5-year warranty, ensuring you plenty of peace-of-mind with this drive, and plenty of features to make it worth your time.
