Intel also includes Data Migration Software for easily cloning your existing HDD.

If you do this on your own drive, the five year warranty is void. As you can see there isn't anything you can do inside the drive. The 520 Series uses a SandForce SF-2281 controller and sixteen Intel 25nm synchronous NAND flash chips.

There are eight on each side of the drive and from what we can tell Intel didn't do anything different with the hardware to make it different from other manufactures offerings. Well, other than the elite firmware.
