Quick update - a news post is in the works.

TL;DR is 1) This Nestor character is an idiot who is about to get some retraining...along with all his fellow buds. 2) Dont worry about it, its all page whoring, rumour mongering with zero facts to back it up 3) read the news post when it lands for details 4) Might even do a follow up to explain enterprise Flush In Flight vs consumer grade Data Loss Protection - hint Intel is the only one in one category and all the rest are in the other...including Micron.

Thanks for updating as you can.

I'm guessing they are some sort of 3rd party customer service provider... Always an issue if they aren't connected to the parent company.

Thanks AkG, was actually alittle miffed, even with the bitching price I got on my 480GB. Would love a schooling on the differences between FIF and data loss protection if you do end up having the time :)


I hope "Nestor" figures out that talking sh!t only gets you bad breath.

I bought the 240 because I waited to long on the 480. Was the 240 supposed to have the caps as well?

Left side. Two capacitors that are used for Flush in Flight / Power Loss Protection.

So either this whole thing is random or something else is afoot. A Chinese copy? :)

Either that or I've read this entire thread wrong... It happens.

We'll have to wait to see what AkG has to say, but what it boils down to is that all 730 series SSDs have these discrete capacitors which reviewers took to mean that they have some form of FiF / power loss data protection, yet the specs on intel's website do not mention any kind of power loss data protection, and the quoted tech support was less than helpful.
