Going off the beaten path for the client-based Intel SSD 520, we take a look at its performance in an enterprise environment.
Intel SSD 520 Enterprise Review
Nice review, BUT ...
While I assume the performance difference between the 120GB version (which I've already ordered) and the reviewed 240GB are about typical for Sandforce 22xx drives, no one has yet checked the unique 180GB!
Any chance you could check one out?
It seems to offer the 240GB performance for less cash, but are there any other "hick-ups"?

To overprovision, would I just create a smaller primary partition (using, say, DISKPART), rather than creating a partition to occupy the total available space? A 192GB partition being a 20% overprovision in the case of the Intel 520 240GB, as you stated in the article? I ask because that seems too obvious and simple, haha.
However it is accomplished, the article definitely seems to indicate that you'd have to be pretty hard up for space not to implement a 20% OP. I'm thinking about getting one of these drives, and if I do I will certainly OP. Or would there be no discernible performance difference in a client setting?
