    TBH I've been pretty disappointed with Intel on their SATAIII efforts, or lack thereof. Using a Marvell controller instead of developing their own decent quality one is the latest in a long line of SATAIII misses going on nearly 2 years now.

    Its not that BAD but its not good either... it seems to be a similar situation that AMD were in for their 6000 series as they had to wait to move to a new process so it was the best they could do with the same equipment, intel have just stuck with the same flash but gone around and stuck random components in and done an ok job but it doesnt beat competition really.

    Hopefully their next effort will be considerably better and later this year. Would've been nice to see a comparison with the G2 - any chance of that?

    how disappointing...Intel might have thought that their name itself can sell this product....

    a 1000 years old vertex 2 can beat this, so I find the conclusion way too positive

    Amazed it even got 3 starts.

    Its a total rush attempt using a 3rd party controller and old memory chips.

    Very disappointing.
