Intel 335 Series 180GB SSD Review - Intel 335 Series 180GB SSD

Intel 335 Series 180GB SSD Review
The Intel 335 Series is known as 'That Intel Drive with 20nm Flash', but it's so much more. The 180GB capacity size gives you comfort room with Windows 8 and does very well in our power test.

The case is all metal like many of Intel's other SSDs.

Unlike some of Intel's other SSDs, the label is on the backside of the drive.

As we mentioned earlier in the review, 335 Series uses a 9.5mm case so some new ultrabook products are not compatible.

The SATA power and data connections are located where they should be, but Intel's included desktop adapter bracket does not offset the drive.

To get to the 180GB capacity size, Intel built the 335 Series 180GB drive with only 12 NAND flash chips, instead of the 16 found on the 240GB model.

The reduction was made by removing two chips on each side.
