Intel SSD 730 Series review

 

The Intel 730 Series SSD has strong performance but is expensive

The Intel 730 Series has reasonable performance, but is outclassed by the Best Buy-winning Crucial M550, which is faster and cheaper than Intel's drive. If you're looking for the best SSDs then check out our Best SSD 2015 buying guide.

Intel 730 'Jackson Ridge' Raid 0 Review

 

Over a month ago we got to sample Intel's latest SSD. Now we see how it performs when a second identical drive is added to make a Raid 0 volume.

Blistering read speed ; Highly durable and sustained write speed ; Metal casing

Mediocre burst Write speed

Matching up a pair of already quick SSD's was always going to show massive leaps in performance. Read speeds almost topped 1000 MB/s while write speeds also showed a fair increase in speed. The blistering pace of the read speed was however surpassed by...

Intel 730 240GB SSD Review

 

After last year's release of the DC S3700 series SSD's, it was only a matter of time before Intel allowed their LSI built, in house designed X25

It goes without saying that going into this review, we had some awesomely high expectations for Intel’s 730 series. After reading numerous

Intel 730 Jackson Ridge 240GB SSD RAID 0 Review

 

KitGuru reviewed the Intel 730 Jackson Ridge Solid State Drive back on March 6th, and there was a lot of interest in the review. Since then Intel sent us over two more 730 drives and today we supplement our original findings by adding some RAID 0 results.

5 year warranty with 70GB of data rated per day.

A little more expensive than some leading competitor drives at same capacity.

Intel 730 240GB Review

 

Optimised and overclocked, the Intel 730 Series SSD is about to be unleashed. Can it compete with the current high performance SSDs?

A large 50GB of writes per day warranted ; High read Performance ; Full metal shroud

Poor write speed

There are two sides to a coin as we all know and the same can be said of the Intel 730 SSD, at least the 240GB version. Read speeds were comparable to the leading SSDs currently available. Add to this the sleek metal design and the class leading 50GB...

Intel 730 Jackson Ridge 240GB SSD Review

 

Today we are looking at the latest Solid State Drive from Intel, the 730. This 2.5 inch drive uses a specially qualified 3rd generation Intel controller, the same 20nm NAND flash memory that was used in the S3500, alongside an optimised firmware. Intel...

Intel 730 Series SSD 480GB Review

 

Intel has largely been absent from the high-end SSD market for many years, which has been a real head-scratcher, considering the original X-25M's dominance back in 2009. That all changes this month with the release of its all-new 730 series SSD. It...

Intel SSD 730 Series review

 

Intel's latest 730 Series solid-state drive (SSD) is the first from the company that comes with a factory-overclocked SSD controller and NAND bus speeds. However, performance is not its strongest suit, but rather, its endurance.

The Intel SSD 730 Series has a high endurance rating and comes with a five-year warranty. The drive offers a huge boost in performance compared with regular hard drives and can handle RAID configurations.

The new drive doesn't support encryption, and its performance isn't the best among similarly priced SSDs.

At launch, the new Intel SSD 730 Series makes a very good internal drive choice for your computer, but it'll become a better value when its street price drops below the current suggested retail price.
