Mine is posted in here somewhere a few pages back. It was 18k on Intel P55 controller with iastor.

I really like it.
Intel Toolbox is nice. No worry did it TRIM or not if you run TRIM manually etc.

Essenbe steered me to a good product.

Yea, I do really like Intel drives myself

I would think the 320 would be quite similar to the X25s.

I know on my x25V 40GB, I didnt exactly keep it clean.

For example, I would test something, then fireup Acronis and do a system restore. I did this alot for a while. Maybe once a week.

And even doing so, it still held on to its performace. It might drop a point or 2 on occasions, but was back up to speed within a day.

I did Secure erase it once or twice .. but overall I didnt worry about it, nor did I need to.
So from that stand point, the Intels are quite durable & dependable.
So Im very comfortable using & trusting it.


If the M4 can do even close to that long term, it will certainly will be a huge success.
Its numbers alone are already very impressive.




Might still get the M4 though at build time
That or put the money into something else like larger spinners for storage.

Just noticed something playing around with my new Intel 320 Drive.

In the Smart DATA it shows this:
Show us your SSD performance-1.jpg

I just installed this drive ... why are the writes so high?

Just out of pure curiosity, I started up my Nero rescure recovery (similar to undelete) and scanned the drive and got this:
Show us your SSD performance-2.jpg

Notice the dates?

When I got the drive I updated the firmware.
Afterwards I booted from my Acronis rescue disc and imaged my OS over.
I left the drive as unallocated, so there was no partition of format done.

I was thinking perhaps some of this may be remants in the image of things deleted but ....
I installed a fresh copy of Win 7 (After a Secure Erase) when I got my new Graphics card. that was may of this year, so the dates seem wierd.



Am I jumping to conclusions or does it look like the drive is used?
It almost appears as if it was patitioned, and that was just deleted.

Also, power cycle is showing 46.
I cant possibly see that its been more than 10 TBH.

Power cycle count is showing 4.

Power on hours is 46.

What Nero is showing I have no clue.

Here is my Intel Toolbox SMART since May?? About that time.

Bah mis-read that, sorry.

Power cycle dows seems about right (althought i thought should be a bit more)

The 65GB of writes was what really got my attention. Seemed excessive after only imaging a 20GB Image.


Maybe Im just reading more into it than I should

I'd say it is right.

On some SSD's they show a value for writes you make- Host Writes (installs and downloads) and Total writes- what is written by wear leveling etc. plus the Host Writes.

Intels from what I can figure just gives Total Writes but is called Host Writes. So you end up with the same total listed twice as Host Writes.
Depends on how the firmware is written by each company/manufacturer.

I have written enough on mine to activate wear leveling and both write totals are still the same amount.

20GB image decompresses a lot bigger.
Macrium and other backup software compress the saved image.

Installed on my SSD right now is 43GB.

I just made a new Macrium Image. I forgot to make one yesterday after the Windows Updates.

New Mac Image is 18.3GB compressed.

So if I set that image it will decompress back to the 43GB on my drive now.

So that accounts for at least 40GB of your 65GB.

There have been more than a few discussions of that on the Intel Forums and as far as I can recall nobody can explain the values given. The writes always exceed what is expected. If intrested, here is a download of info on Intel 320 drives in pdf format.

Update on the SSD Write Endurance 25nm Vs 34nm thread.

One SSD (manufacturer lifetime rating of 172.4TiB) is at 684TiB and still going strong.
