If you have been waiting for solid state drives to mature a little bit before taking the plunge and switching over to SSD technology for your laptop or desktop, you might decide that the time has finally come. Manufacturers like Intel are now in their third generation of SSD drives with the launch of the SSD 320 series. Now that they have had the chance to refine and enhance their equipment, it is now available to the public at a reasonable price for a powerful device. No longer just for early adopters, solid state drives can make even the most casual computer user happier by the increase of speed, reliability, and performance.
The third-generation of SSDs from Intel is the 320 series. Relying on flash memory from NAND, you can buy an Intel SSD anywhere from 40GF all the way up to 160 GB if you are an average computer user. If you are a power user that uses a high level of memory for gaming or media, you may want to consider some of Intels high capacity SSDs. These are anywhere from 300GB all the way up to 600 GB and can handle even the most demanding computer use. The third generation also takes advantage of their past success, and is able to offer their latest line of solid state drives at a cheaper price than the last line of SSDs. So just like a lot of other technology, as they are out on the market they continue to get better, faster, and cheaper.
The third generation of SSDs arent just cheaper, they are also fundamentally better. They use smaller silicon, they offer data security protection, and they offer automatic backup in the case of a power loss. If you have been waiting for the right time to jump in and purchase a solid state drive, the time for waiting is over.
