Intel 520 'Cherryville' Series 240GB SSD

Legit Reviews has taken the new Intel 520 'Cherryville' Series 240GB SSD around the block a few times to see what it is made of. Overall this is a very positive review, here's a quote to get you started:

Intel has been one of the mainstays of the SSD world and are one of the most trusted names and respected leaders in the computer industry. Their groundbreaking X25-M SSDs were the gold standard for which all other drives were judged for quite some time. That said, the SandForce SF-2281 controller has been out for close to a year now and featured in drives from just about every SSD manufacturer - so why is Intel just now releasing their SF-2281 SSD, code named Cherryville? In one word, firmware.
