Worked really well for years. I just updated to the new 530 series to get the higher bandwidth.

No issues. I used it in an early 2011 17" MBP with an Intel SATA controller. Never had any problems with speed or hang ups. No corruption or anything either. Very satisfied with Intel SSDs

I have been using this SSD for over 3 years now and am still amazed at how fast my computer runs. It is a little small compared to some other SSD available today but I have a regular 300GB drive for programs and my external HDD hold all my media so as long as I am managing my space well this is perfect for holding the OS and a few things here and there. It definitely has helped my computer stay quick and I can still play most new games on high detail as well as have many programs open at once with little to no slow down. Load times are also significantly lower because of how fast it can access data. Super pleased with it so far!

If you are looking to put a little life in an older laptop or desktop this is probably one of the smartest upgrades you can make!

BUY SOMETHING ELSE!

Especially at the $200 level, there are drives of double the capacity out there, with better reliability (Samsung 840 pro).

This is my 6th SSD, first from Intel. All was good for about 16 months of use, then the drive died completely. No fix. No warning. Drive is gone, SMART is not active, and the bios indicated capacity is 8MB.

This is all apparently due to an issue which Intel has known about, and issued a firmware "fix" for. Problem is, I have the latest firmware. Don't know if this is a different issue, with exactly the same symptoms (??), but that fix did nothing for me.

Info here: [...]

And here is the recommended fix, though all of your data will be toast: [...]

All in all, if you depend on your computer at all, or get sick of reinstalling everything on your pc often, get the most reliable SSD you can. Samsung 840 pro has treated me well. From experience, I avoid OCZ and Intel. I hope this helps.

this is a very good drive and very fast, delivering completely as promised. also it comes with the 3.5" bay tray, and also the screwdrivers and best is it comes with a sata-usb cable that you can use to clone your existing hdd tothis new ssd and get running within just in less than an hour after the whole transfer has done.

so convenient.

25 months of use and now it is dead. First SSD I ever bought and chose an Intel. Perhaps that's the life expectancy of an (Intel) SSD?

I had 3 of these fail in my Win 7 laptop after a few months of use. Never had any problem with the spinning drive on the laptop. Intel customer service was great, replacing each one quickly. Finally they refunded my money. Not a good drive, wasn't even that fast, although a bit faster than spinning drive.

This drive has been performing very well for about a month. The performance is excellent and the setup of the actual drive was very straightforward. However, the setup required for Windows XP to keep it from banging the drive to death is HORRENDOUS! There is a lot of info online about how to do it, but a comprehensive collection is difficult to come by. As always, remember, it's not IF your hard drive will die...it's when. Solid product...so far.

This was used to convert my laptop from a standard hard drive. It was amazingly simple to install. It was very easy to migrate from the old hard drive. Now I have a better operating laptop with faster boots and longer run time on battery. I could not be happier. I have now ordered another to update my desktop. OS on the SSD and storage on the old TB drive. If you have a laptop, this is the only way to go by far.
