Picked up a new Intel SSD
lately? If it's the SSD 320, you're in for
some good news. While solid state drives are best known for being more
reliable and durable than HDDs, there have been some fragmenting issues
and performance-related issues along the way. Now, those who purchase an
SSD 320 will have a little less to worry over. Intel has just revealed
that they will be extending their limited warranty for the SSD 320
Series from three years to five years. That's a pretty significant
increase, and the extended warranty term will apply to all Intel SSD 320
Series drives, including those already purchased.
Of course, this only applies to consumer-level disks; enterprise usage
levels will have other strings attached. Now, how long before every Intel
SSD matches this?
