Intel Pushes SSD 320 Warranty From 3 Years To 5 Years

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?
