I'm considering buying a 180Gb Intel 330 SSD (Intel SSDSC2CT180A3K5) but my desktop has 3.5 inch drive bays and this drive is 2.5. I wanted to find out if the drive package will include an adapter to put it in my 3.5 inch bay, or should I buy some rails that will allow it to fit.
Thanks for the info. The description at Newegg does not say what comes in the package. They show an Intel 520 SSD "OEM" that I assume is just a bare drive.
I do have another question about the installation. I am currently waiting on a RMA from another manufacturer for a 90 Gb SSD that has failled twice. I have a disaster recovery backup that I plan to use. So my question is, would it be better to wait on my 90 Gb SSD, format it, and restore my backup to it, then put in the Intel 180Gb SSD and transfer the files?
Will your transfer software allow me to transfer all the Boot stuff from the old SSD to the new one, so I can boot up and run my Win7-64Pro PC?
My other thought was to buy the Intel 330 SSD and just restore my disaster backup there and put the RMA'd 90Gb SSD for sale on eBay. Any thoughts?
Hello gtwatson77459, I saw your question last night before it was deleted, I would love to answer your question but it would be deleted anyway, so go to the forum I told you and ask your questions there, you will find very friendly and helpful people there.
I want to buy an Intel SSD, I posted my question and nobody answered. http://communities.intel.com/message/154803#154803
It is funny because I am an old engineer, last sunday I bought my last desktop computer with a Core i7 2600, nice machine, I have a laptop also a Core i7, but I have not found the Intel SSD in any of the big brick and mortar computer stores of Sunrise in Florida. I am loyal buying computers with Intel "Inside" since early eighties, the time of DOS OS, last century about 30 years. Might be it is time to change my mind.
Best regards while it last
OOPS, I guess that I drifted the thread too far off the first topic. My apologies for the drift. I'll try to stay on topic in the future.
The Intel 330 SSD looks like a good buy and I will purchase in the near future and I will not need to buy the rails since it should come with them.
I'll come back here to ask questions once I get it.
