The Good Intel reliability. Write speeds are improved.

The Bad Better performing drives that give more capacity are around the same price.

The Bottom Line While there are better performing drives out there, the 335 represents the peace of mind choice when buying an SSD.

Intel's 335 Series hasn't changed much since the preceding 330 Series — to the point that opening the drive up reveals the circuit board to be almost identical and still SandForce 2281-based. The secret is hidden in the serial numbers on the NAND itself, with Intel transitioning its memory from 25nm to a 20nm process.

Otherwise, things are, at least from a physical standpoint, exactly the same, with only firmware tweaks to provide a difference.

It's sold only as a 240GB capacity at this stage (with 224GB of that being usable), and in kit form — meaning you get a 2.5-inch to 3.5-inch bay adapter, a four pin to SATA power connector, a 6Gbps SATA cable, and a few screws along with the drive itself.
