Intel SSD 520 Series 240 GB Solid State Drive Review

Hardware Secrets Silver Award

How We Tested

During our testing procedures, we used the configuration listed below. The only variable component between each benchmarking session was the solid state drive being tested.

Hardware Configuration

Software Configuration

  • Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit using NTFS file system
  • Intel INF Driver Version: 9.2.0.1016
  • NVIDIA Video Driver Version: 270.61

Benchmarking Software

Error Margin

We adopted a 3% error margin in our tests, meaning performance differences of less than 3% can’t be considered meaningful. Therefore, when the performance difference between two products is less than 3%, we consider them to have similar performance.
