Product Description

Amazon.com Product Description The Intel X-25E Extreme SATA Solid State Drive is the ideal storage solution for servers, high-end workstations, and other enterprise applications. Unlike traditional hard drives with moving parts, the X-25E uses NAND flash memory that offers extreme performance and reliability and delivers the highest Input/Output Operations per second (IOPS) per watt.



The X-25E drive offers extreme performance and reliability.


A New Kind of Storage for Faster Performance and Better Reliability
For enterprise applications, where performance, reliability, power consumption, and space are critical, the X-25E is the ideal solution. Instead of spinning platters like traditional hard drives, the X-25E is a Solid State Drive (SSD) and uses flash memory for storage, so there are no moving parts to break down.

The X-25E works and installs just like traditional drives: it uses the latest SATA interface for throughput of up to 3.0 Gbps and is in the industry-standard 2.5-inch form factor. For your peace of mind, Intel has even tested and validated every X-25E drive on the latest Intel-based server and workstation platforms, so you'll be confident of its superb reliability.

All this adds up to a storage solution that is quieter, cooler, takes up less space, and uses less power. Just imagine the reduction in total cost of ownership (TCO) when you replace dozens of high-RPM traditional drives in your server with just one X-25E.

Performs Even Faster than Other Solid State Drives
Intel has been making memory chips for decades, and it shows with the X-25E's intelligent design and outstanding performance. The drive implements an advanced architecture, using 10 parallel NAND flash channels with single-level cell (SLC) NAND flash memory for greater performance and reliability than drives that use multi-level cell (MLC) flash memory. The drive also features technologies such as Native Command Queuing, which enables up to 32 simultaneous operations.

The result is higher input/output operations per second (IOPS) and throughput than other SSD drives on the market. It achieves sustained sequential read speeds of up to 250 MBps and sustained sequential write speeds of up to 170 MBps, with a read latency of just 75 microseconds. The X25-E performs more than 35,000 IOPS with random 4 KB reads, and more than 3,300 IOPS with random 4 KB writes.

Higher Reliability and Silent Operation
Compared to traditional hard drives, the X-25E is both faster and more durable. Since it doesn't have spinning disks or writing heads, there are fewer parts to fail. It is also less susceptible to vibrations and shock and is completely silent. The X-25E is rated at 2 million hours mean time before failure (MTBF) for superb reliability.

Lower Power Consumption is Good for the Wallet and Environment
The X-25E also consumes far less power than traditional drives, lowering energy costs. When active, the drive draws 2.4 W on a typical server workload and just 0.06 W when idle.

The Intel X-25E Extreme SATA Solid State Drive is RoHS compliant for its use of non-hazardous materials. It supports Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology (SMART) commands as well as additional SSD monitoring. It is backed by a three-year limited warranty.



The great performance of the X-25E makes it ideal for servers, workstations, and other critical use.

On top of everything, they are quiet, cool, and have no moving parts.
Gregory Relaford
I have much cheaper and much larger secondary internal mass storage and external USB mass storage for that.

I've been using one of these for about 6 months now and I must say it's amazing.

The biggest complaint people seem to have had about this drive is the price and capacity. Truth be told, the price is absolutely worth it. How many other components in your system can you migrate to your next system? This is one of those components. You probably invested hundreds of dollars into your RAM and CPU hoping your computer would be faster, perhaps you even setup RAID, but the fact is, whatever you did to upgrade your computer, it's potential is going to waste unless it's sporting one of these drives.

I'll share a rundown of my workstation configuration:

First, I have two of these X25-E drives with RAID in my workstation. Not because I needed the extra speed (one drive is speedy enough) but because I need redundancy. Never know when something will fail, even one of these disks, so that is my personal solution. Windows 7 boots up to the Desktop in 14 seconds from power-on, and most of those 14 seconds is waiting for the BIOS to initiate the other system components.

Second, the 32GB storage is plenty for the operating system (Windows 7), all of my applications including Office and Photoshop, and I still have about 11 GB to spare. For graphics, music, videos, etc., I do not use this drive as storage. I have much cheaper and much larger secondary internal mass storage and external USB mass storage for that. Why waste the high performance SSD on static data, right?

Third, prior to owning this X25-E, I already had an iRAM disk (by GigaByte). Now, it isn't nearly as spacious, but it did it's job. I've re-attached it as tertiary storage and moved my Windows paging file, TEMP folders, and Photoshop scratch files here.

I've been using one of these for about 6 months now and I must say it's amazing. The snappiness of applications on starting up is fantastic. It is a bit of a pain to have to offload a lot of things to slower storage, but it's made development on this system a breeze!

I'd give it 4.5 stars just because of the price, but otherwise it's been good to me.

75% of My Last 4 Sellers to Me Sold Severely Used - Not NEW X25-E SLC SSD. 3 Sellers in a row fraudulently and intentionally falsified the SSD condition, as "NEW" So buyers beware; if you do buy "NEW", upon receipt double check by Google search terms "Intel ssd toolkit download" and download V2 of Intel's toolkit. Run the Toolkit to get the S.M.A.R.T. internal firmware counters, and look at Power-On Hours, Power Cycles Off to On Times ), and Host Writes if NEW ssd should be close to Zero ). You will need a desktop or laptop with a real SATA connection to the X25-E, where eSATA laptop port will not work. For me, I used a SATA HDD Caddy to place my Intel X25-E SSD in the available DVD SATA slot, by swapping out my DVD drive with the HDD Caddy. I then ran Intel's Toolkit to dump the Intel SSD S.M.A.R.T. counters. Alternatively, Intel has shipped to at least 30 on-line storesTOTALLY NEW INTEL SERIES 710 eMLC 100 GB SSD with MTBF of 2 M Hrs. for roughly $650 ea. Intel claims as good or better than X25-E SLC. Just Google Search Terms "Intel Series 710 100GB" to avoid "USED" and get TRUE INTEL "NEW". - Jeff in IT Chicago.
