Low-cost Intel 330 series SSDs sport SandForce SF-2281 SSD Controller

According to this extremely informative article on the Anandtech.com site, Intel’s just-released 330 series SSDs push Intel into the low-cost SSD zone using the SandForce SF-2281 SSD controller. Apparently, Intel’s 520 SSD series also employs this controller, but the use of 25nm MLC (multi-level cell) NAND Flash with lower endurance permits Intel to drop the warranty period from 5 years (for the 520 SSD series) to 3 years for the 330 SSD series. The price for the Intel 330 SSD series in three available capacities—60, 120, and 180Gbytes—is $89, $149, and $234 respectively.
