Been holding off on stuffing solid state storage into your existing machine because of high prices or reliability issues? Bargain hunters, your SSD may have just arrived in the form of Intel’s 330 Series SSDs. We got the low down on them weeks ago, but in case you forgot, Intels new 25nm NAND entry utilizes a SATA 6 Gb/s connection to deliver up to 500 MB/s sequential reads and 450 MB/s writes. Such speeds aren’t spectacular compared to other SSDs, but combine them with Chipzilla’s reputation for crafting quality drives, low prices — $ 89 for 60GB, $ 149 for 120GB, and $ 234 for 180GB — and a three year warranty, and the 330 has some serious curb appeal. Want one? All three sizes available now online or at you local retailer (assuming it’s still there, of course).
