Specifications, Availability and Pricing
The specifications won't show any difference between the Intel X25-M and Kingston's SSDnow M-Series. The two drives are in fact the same with a different label. Choosing one drive over the other is going to come down to personal preference between the RMA procedures, cost at the time and availability.
We already know that the X25-M is the fastest consumer level solid state drive on the market now. We have tested a few drives that were sent to us with a claimed, "Intel X25-M Like Speed", but so far they have all fallen short. Talk about a complement; when your competitors advertise their drive as having speed close to yours. Kingston doesn't have to make these comparisons; they came on the field with Montana and Rice on their team.
At the time of this writing Newegg had the Kingston M Series in 80 GB capacity for 461.00 USD with free shipping. The Intel version is listed at Newegg for 393.00, but you can find both for a little less if you shop around.
To keep things a little interesting today we are testing the Kingston SSDNow M-Series 80GB drive with the latest 1.1 firmware that was just released a couple days ago.
