I need help with a decision.
 
I'll get right to the point. I tried to do a search to find some info on the Intel 520 240 GB SSD and came up with way too much info for me to digest and understand. I'm thinking it's a good drive and I can get one for 219.99. Is this a good drive (I have a X25-M 80 GB. for my OS now and I like it but it's getting small). Is 219.99 a good price?
Thanks
I appreciate any feed back.

It's a damn good drive, I have one. And that's a very good price for it.

GMJim December 8, 2012 10:24 AM

Thanks for the reply. I'm going to go for it!

My Fujitsu P770 12.1" laptop now has an Intel 520 480Gb boot drive and an Intel 330 series 240GB as a data drive. So far, very nice!

Have not been running them long enough to know how battery life wil l be effected. The two replace a WD 750Gb Black drive, which is pretty power efficient....

ya is a good price for a 240 gb ssd for sure, been looking at the new vectors but he price of 2 scares me a little :sad:

Thanks for all the feedback. I couldn't resist going for the 240 GB because it was on sale and only 10 bucks more than the 180 GB. I have an 80 GB X25-M now and I think it's great but I like to keep lots of free space on my OS drive and the 80 has me not wanting to load some of the things I want to play with. I really only needed the 180 and that would have been plenty big enough but.....

On another subject I was looking at the 180 GB and found two models. What's the difference?
SSDSC2CW180A3B5 VS SSDSC2CW180A3K5

Probably batches. Only difference is the second last character in what you typed out.

SSDSC2CT are 330 series
SSDSC2CW are 520 series
