Western Digital Blue SN500 SSD vs Intel SSD Series 5 (2012)

Analysis:

The reviewers at Techradar have featured the Intel SSD 520 240GB in their Intel SSD 520 Series 240GB review roundup. However, it fell short of making it to the top of their list.

As for the Western Digital SSD Blue SN500 250GB, it wasn't able to earn a top spot in any roundups from trusted sources that conduct their own hands-on testing. Nevertheless, it managed to impress reviewers at itpro.co.uk, PCGamesN, and PCWorld enough to make it onto their respective shortlists.

We couldn't find any sources that tested both of these Internal SSDs, so we only analyzed how they performed in reviews from different sites.

We first examined which sources rated each of these best and found that the Intel SSD 520 240GB got its highest, 8, rating from Techradar, while the Western Digital SSD Blue SN500 250GB earned its best, 10, score from itpro.co.uk.

Lastly, in order to better compare them to the rest of their competition, we averaged out their review scores. The Western Digital SSD Blue SN500 250GB managed to get 9.0 out of 10 - considerably better than the 7.8 review average of Internal SSDs in general - whereas the Intel SSD 520 240GB earned 7.7 points.

It should be said that doing a direct Intel SSD 520 240GB vs. Western Digital SSD Blue SN500 250GB comparison might not be entirely fair due to the difference in their prices - some sources don't put much weight on value for money and thus tend to give better review scores to more expensive products.
