When did Intel start using Sandforce controllers?

And more to the point, is this like other Sandforce based SSDs in that when presented with files that are already compressed (like video files), the speed rating for both read and write drops to half that claimed?

And lastly, Intel has a terrific reputation for reliability, whereas Sandforce not so much (to be charitable). What on earth made Intel go with Sandforce?

With comparable speed, proven reliability and better price per GB, you're much better off picking up a 512GB Cruical M4 for $100 less: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820148444
