Looks like those firmware problems have been resolved, as the Intel X25-M is now for sale on NewEgg.com. Of interest is the 160 gigabyte variant, for it’s relative balance of capacity, performance, and price.

You’re probably wondering why you should spend $485 on a drive that can only hold 160GB of data. Well, solid state disks are known more for their read and write speeds, rather than the affordability. And in terms of speed, it seems nothing matches Intel’s flagship SSD offering for now.

In any case, the Intel X25-M line represents significant improvements over the X25-E models. Simply put, the newer Intel solid state disks operate much faster, at literally half the price. The 160GB X25-E for instance retailed for over $900!

As mentioned above, NewEgg currently carries the X25-M, the 160GB version, for $485. If you’ve got a lower price, feel free to hit the comments below.

    Um.. You might want to check your E’s and M’s in your article. There is a huge difference in the two and I think you might have things confused. This statement for example is complete rubbish “the Intel X25-M line represents significant improvements over the X25-E models”.

      Noted. Was wondering what Tom’s Hardware was talking about when they reported on NewEgg suddenly doubling the prices of the Ms, then delisting them from the store.
