Quoted from Intel SSD 525 Reviews:Check out these quotes from Intel SSD 525 reviews & previews
"In consideration of its compact mSATA form factor, top-level performance, and reasonable price, the Intel SSD 525 Series solid state drive series earns our Golden Tachometer Award for excellence."
"As for theIntel 525 Series itself, because performance is identical to full size drives, it’s not hard to recommend it if you are in the market for an mSATA SSD. You can get absolute full performance with the 180 and 240 GB versions, and you are almost there with the 120 GB version, and a brilliant steady state curve in terms of both data transfer and access times. The 60 GB version makes for a great SSD cache, perfect for use with Intel’s Smart Response Technology. And while the 30 GB version is hampered by low write performance, that won’t be an issue when used as a cache drive, since it will always be receiving its write data from a slow mechanical drive."
"Even with a three year warranty, the new 525 Series are excellent mSATA drives. If you are looking for one of the best mSATA upgrades available on the market today, either the 120GB or 180GB version deserves serious consideration. Currently, they’re almost impossible to beat from a performance per dollar perspective."
"It's good to see Intel keep pushing the mSATA form factor with their new 525 Series. These tiny drives should offer a solid performance upgrade to any of the growing list of mSATA-equipped devices, such as high end motherboards, ultrabooks, home theater front-ends, and even some embedded systems. The SandForce controller performed as expected and did quite well considering it was limited to four flash packages, with the higher capacities nearly matching Intel's desktop-class SSD 520. If you have an mSATA-equipped device that is struggling on storage speed, the SSD 525 is an obvious upgrade."
