Intel has added two years to the warranty on its 320 series of solid-state drives because it is confident in their reliability.

The boost in warranty from three to five years was announced Friday. It covers consumer-level use of the drives, which is up to 20 gigabytes of writes per day. Caveats apply to enterprise-level usage, typically in high input/output environments such as data centers.

"Expanding [the warranty] from three to five years on its latest product, the 320, is important," said Joseph Unsworth, a research director at Gartner. "This is a testimonial to the fact that Intel has very strong flash management capabilities that they're willing to stand behind with an enhanced warranty."
