Intel SSD5 545s SATA 3 SSD Review (512GB)

REPORT ANALYSIS AND FINAL THOUGHTS

Having been in the storage field since 2007,  I can attest to the fact that myself and peers alike get just a bit caught up in the highlights of flash and seem to overlook the basic fact that over 85% of PCs today still contain hard drives.  Somehow, in the wonder of flash tech advance, flash still hasn’t unseated that foothold that hard disks have on PCs and storage…at least not in the retail marketplace.  Myself, flash technology is a high and each and every time I get to ‘pass the word’ and show people what a change flash has made in our lives, that is time well spent.  The Intel SSD5 545s SATA 3 SSD is an ideal example of this.

This SSD is a replacement for the hard drive in your PC.  It is an easy swap using the free Intel’ Migration Software and, although its capacity might not yet match that of some hard drives with respect to price per gigabyte, its performance simply BLOWS any hard drive out of the water. In some home systems, you can save more than a day of your life a year just waiting for your PC to start when comparing the hard drive to the SSD.  Absolute truth.  It is faster.  It is cooler.  If installed in your laptop, your battery will last longer.  It doesn’t suffer corruption issues over time as a hard drive does and it is completely silent.  If you are unsure, our Beginners Guide is full of easily read and easily understood articles that will help you along.

MSRP for the Intel SSD5 545s SATA 3 SSD is $175 for the 512GB capacity, performance at the top of the SATA 3 spectrum with 563MB/s read and 508MB/s write, Intel has a stellar reputation, they include free SSD Toolbox and SSD Migration Software, and this SSD has a 5-year warranty, something that for some reason still isn’t too common. Simply put, this is an excellent representation of flash technology (64-layer 3D TLC in fact) and would be an excellent purchase for those upgrading from a hard drive.  I promise you that you will witness a significant difference in your PC once the SSD is installed.  Time spent working, or playing, in the data world will once again become an enjoyable task.

It was some time ago that even the mention of TLC NAND flash memory could draw forum confrontations so active that they would inflame contributors, most threads containing language that we definitely wouldn't want children hearing...or reading in that case.  Luckily, NAND flash memory has progressed.  In fact, this progression is very 'consumer-centric' as today's SSDs, built on the newest 64-layer 3D TLC memory, push higher capacity SSDs to retail at a much lower price.  This is specific to SATA 3 SSDs, as their performance has hit their ceiling some time ago, but for those into PCIe SSDs performance completes that sacred 'speed-capacity-value'…
