Intel has pushed out many SSDs over the years, and unlike many manufacturers, they have never stopped heavily pushing SSD in the enterprise. They did so with their very first push of the X25-M / X25-E, where they seemingly came out of nowhere and...

Intel lent us six SSD DC S3500 drives with its home-brewed 6 Gb/s SATA controller inside. We match them up to the Z87/C226 chipset's six corresponding ports, a handful of software-based RAID modes, and two operating systems to test their performance. ...

The Intel SSD DC S3500 is an enterprise-class SSD designed to take on read-intense workload applications such as cloud computing or web hosting. The drive interfaces over SATA 6Gb/s and utilizes Intel 20nm MLC NAND, and it ships in both 2.5" slim and...

So, if you need a very specific capacity or form factor, you'll probably find an SSD DC S3500 able to meet your specifications. For everyone else, there is Seagate's 600 Pro.

If we were forced to choose, we would probably go with the S3500 simply because it has more enterprise features that the SM843 can’t match, as well as a transparent and very low pricing scheme. For this, we have awarded the Intel SSD DC S3500 with our Top Value Award.

That puts pricing in the $1.22 – $1.44 range, which is much lower than many enterprise-class solid state drives. Considering their strong, consistent performance, relatively higher endurance, and power-loss data protection, the Intel SSD DC S3500 series drives should be a great fit for all but the most demanding, enterprise workloads.

With a still-high TBW, consistent performance, a good steady state curve, and a 5 year warranty, the DC S3500 is a suitable drive for most read-heavy enterprise solutions.

The new SSDs will be offered in capacities ranging from 80 gigabyte (GB) to 800GB and both 2.5 and 1.8 inch form factors. Available through Intel distributors and resellers, the Intel DC S3500 Series is offered at the suggested channel price of $115 for a 1.8-inch 80GB drive and $979 for a 2.5-inch 800GB drive. It is also accompanied by a 5-year warranty.

The low price point, weighing in at 50% cheaper than the DC S3700 and 20% cheaper than the Intel 320, will also draw in many customers. For those looking to replace HDDs with a value alternative, the Intel DC S3500 fits the bill.

As the SSD market evolves we are beginning to see lower prices slowly cascade down from the mass market into the enterprise and datacenter segments. The pace may have been slow but it has allowed technologies to be refined within less expensive...

The 480GB Intel SSD DC S3500 series drive we featured here offered very good performance throughout out testing. Read performance was competitive with all of the other drives we tested in all but the IOMeter benchmarks. Write performance, however,...

By AnandTech on

Other than write endurance, the only other thing you give up is random write performance. Intel's specs list the S3500 at roughly 1/3 of the sustained 4KB random write performance of the S3700, which I saw in our numbers as well. Given the lower price...

While it may not be as powerful or flexible as its DC S3700 counterpart, for value minded clients searching out additional bandwidth in read centric tasks, the DC S3500 will prove to be a highly competitive option.

Данную тему решено было не оставлять в стороне, и компания Регард , по нашей просьбе, предоставила на тестирование три так называемых Enterprise SSD, а для сравнения был взят привычный и известный многим OCZ Vector. Все накопители физически обладают...

International Review By Tom's Hardware Italy on

Sulla carta e in laboratorio, l'SSD DC S3500 di Intel è di gran lunga superiore alla famiglia SSD 320 che rimpiazza, tanto che l'abbiamo lasciata fuori da questo confronto. Ci sono due ragioni per questo. La prima è che i professionisti IT che acquistano...

Gli appassionati difficilmente metteranno insieme sei SSD su scheda madre Z87 o C226. È bello vedere che Intel lo rende comunque possibile. La maggioranza delle persone usa uno o due SSD, o hard disk, insieme ed è la configurazione che vi raccomandiamo....
