Intel offers refund on 520 SSD.

For those of you that own an Intel 520SSD. Intel just announced a "return program" for the 520SSD. You send it back to Intel, and they will refund you the entire purchase price of the drive. Details at anandtech, link to Intel program here. Intel initially thought the drive was AES 256-bit capable, but apparently it is only 128-bit AES capable, and they just now figured it out. 


There have been reports of incompatibility issues with this drive, so if you own one and thought you were stuck with it, now you are not.

X1 Carbon 3rd Gen Type 20BT i7-5500U, 2560x1440 (non-touch), Win 10 Pro, 8GB RAM, 512 SSD, Intel 7625 WiFi, BT 4.0 | ThinkVision P24q-10 monitor
