Default Intel 530 series vs 520 series

Is this a straight-up upgrade to the 520 series?

So no disadvantage vs the 520, only better in every way right?

I have both a Intel 530- 180g and 2 Intel 520-120gs. Both are excellent ssds that perform about the same. I snagged the 530 on a super sale at Newegg. Both have the 5 yr warranty.

Here's a Newegg link of the comparison of the 520 and 530 both at 180gigs:
