£125 Intel X18-M 80GB 1.8" SATA Solid State Drive

The Intel X25-M and X18-M Mainstream SATA Solid-State Drive (SSD) brings a new level of performance and reliability to laptop and desktop PC storage. Wait Less. Do More.

Why wait for a traditional hard disk drive to spin up? Unlike traditional hard disk drives, Intel solid-state drives have no moving parts, resulting in a quiet, cool, highly rugged storage solution that also offers faster system responsiveness.

And for laptop PCs, the lower power needs of Intel SSDs translate to longer battery life and lighter notebooks. Higher performance with more durability means you can be truly mobile with confidence.

Drawing from decades of memory engineering experience, Intel Mainstream SATA Solid-State Drives are designed to deliver outstanding performance, featuring the latest-generation native SATA interface with an advanced architecture employing 10 parallel NAND flash channels equipped with multi-level cell NAND flash memory.

With powerful Native Command Queuing to enable up to 32 concurrent operations, Intel Mainstream SATA SSDs deliver higher input/output per second and throughput performance than other SSDs on the market today - and drastically outperform traditional hard disk drives.

These drives also feature low write amplification and a unique wear-leveling design for higher reliability, meaning Intel drives not only perform better - they last longer.

This is a 80GB 1.8-inch SATA SSD from Intel and is available from Expansys for £125 plus delivery (opens in new tab).
