I was under the impression that a SSD operates completely silently (like a SD card). I have a pretty new X220 with a 160 gb SSD (intel) and I keep hearing faint noises and an ocassional "whine" from the laptop similar to spindle hard disk noises. Anyone experience that? I do use it in a very quite environment though. Thanks.

It is quite normal to have the high-frequency noise. Usually it happens when I delete a large amount of files, and the M4 512GB, Samsung 830 512GB, Intel 320 Series 300GB all have this noise in my X220. The only exception is the Samsung 470 128GB though. As you can see, 3 out of 4 SSD's I used make the noise. Nothing to worry about.
