Intel extends warranty on Solid State Drives



/ 8 years ago

Intel has announced that they will be extending the standard warranty on all their 320 series solid state drives from 3 years to 5 years. Meaning the warranty period on SSDs now rivals that of mechanical hard drives.

Other manufacturers of solid state drives are expected to follow suit. The Intel Solid State Drives covered by this warranty extension are:

  • Intel Solid-State Drive 320 40GB
  • Intel Solid-State Drive 320 80GB
  • Intel Solid-State Drive 320 120GB
  • Intel Solid-State Drive 320 160GB
  • Intel Solid-State Drive 320 300GB
  • Intel Solid-State Drive 320 600GB

    If the prices are right, then I'm with you on that. Most of my hard drive space is devoted to music files and a few videos. It boggles my mind for what I would do with 1TB of storage space. …. yup, would love a 600gb SSD… for the right price.

    How much lower? I would imagine you need to write tons of data everyday for many years before it fails… idk much about it.

    Good find. Thanks for sharing. With so many different kinds of SSDs in a growing storage market, I'm glad tech guys are reviewing stuff like this.
