Intel Solid State Drive 730 Series
PERFORMANCE UNLEASHED. Look Inside.

Born from the data center, the Intel Solid-State Drive 730 Series delivers uncompromised performance for PC enthusiasts by combining factory tuned components and data center DNA.

Optimized for Performance

Maximize your computing experience with the fastest consumer Intel Solid-State Drive delivered to date. The Intel Solid-State Drive 730 Series is built with a specially qualified 3rd generation Intel controller. Performance optimized firmware and 20nm Intel NAND Flash Memory take it a step further by factory overclocking these components for a 50% increase in controller speed and 20% increase in NAND bus speed. Optimized for the most demanding tasks, including digital content creation and extreme gaming, the Intel Solid-State Drive 730 Series delivers low 50µs read latency, up to 550 MB/s sequential reads and random reads up to 86,000 IOPS.

Intel Data Center DNA

The Intel Solid-State Drive 730 Series also delivers extreme endurance of up to 70GB writes per day for five years (compared to the industry typical 20GB), providing peace of mind for anyone requiring dependable up-time from their workstation or gaming rig. Intel’s advanced firmware algorithms provide consistent performance that you can rely on for both compressible and incompressible data types, plus data center efficiency and dependability.

Intel SSD 730 Series + Intel Rapid Storage Technology

Digital content creation experts and PC enthusiasts know the highest storage performance is achieved with RAID configurations, especially as Solid-State Drives start to saturate the SATA bus. Two 240GB Intel Solid-State Drive 730 Series in a RAID-0 configuration provide the same storage capacity as a single 480GB drive— but the throughput nearly doubles to an amazing 1000 MB/s when coupled with Intel platforms supporting Intel Rapid Storage Technology (Q87, H87, Z87 & X79).

With the Intel Solid-State Drive 730 Series inside your build, you get:
  • Performance in a Flash: Less lag with 50µs read latencies and consistently high transfer rates and application loads with up to 550 MB/s sequential reads1,2 and 86,000 IOPS random reads1,2
  • Data Center DNA: Extreme endurance of up to 70GB of writes per day,1,3 consistent performance across all data types, and RAID performance scaling beyond 1GB/s
  • Quality and Reliability: 3rd generation Intel controller and 5-year warranty

I love this SSD!!!
Talk about speed and throughput, and then add in the reliability of Intel SSD's, and now, also the cost of Intels SSD's, this one is a MONSTER Performer!

Also, I purchased the 480Gb version of this Intel 730 SSD, and have no idea of why Amazon listed my review being for the 240Gb SSD???
So this review is for the 480Gb Intel 730 SSD.

Also please note, the advertized speeds of this SSD are meant for a SATA III device.
So if your running this in a laptop or desktop computer, that only has SATA II capabilities, your speeds are going to be slower.
Still, this is a very fast SSD, even when used in a SATA II laptop/desktop!

I've been using SSD's since Intels X25 was released.
Since that time, I've used many different brands, from Crucial, OCZ, Samsung, and Mushkin, and throughout the years, I've always gone back to using Intel, due to failure rates.
Intel leads the pack with much fewer returns due to failures.
& Yep, you can easily find this information online, with just a few word searches.
SSD reviews, Best SSD's, Most reliable SSD's, SSD Failure Rates....
Google any one/or all, of those, and you'll find the info you need.

This 730 is the fastest Intel SSD I've ever used, and as I said earlier, I've used a lot of em!
They are a snap to install, and I already have Acronis Image 2014, which clones and copies your OS perfectly, then a few commands later, your set up and are using your new desktop/laptop, with Windows 7 or Windows 8.

Fast, Reliable, and now, Intel's pricing is much more competitive.
Just awesome!!!
I do highly recommend this SSD, for any desktop, or Laptop computer.

Style Name: Reseller KitSize: 480GB Verified Purchase
This is one fast and highly reliable SSD. You can compare specs till your face turns orange, at which time you may buy a Samsung or other aggressively spec'd out product. Remember that THIS Intel 730 is not only super fast (though it won't finish #1 in any group of tests), it's super reliable in case of a drastic computer failure. Because it uses big capacitors that keep voltage up even when power is suddenly removed, it will complete its writes and not create broken files, as will happen on blazing Samsung/etc drives. The Micron based Crucial drives are the other brand that offers good speed plus solid reliability. This Intel is intended for top of the line performance in a DESKTOP or server chassis environment. Don't even consider it for your laptop, as the heat and extra current usage is not appropriate for laptop usage. The aluminum case dissipates heat well. Over a few years I've installed several 530 and 730 models, and they ALL RUN FLAWLESSLY and still report as "100% good condition" with SSD test softwares. A highly recommended product for PCs running versions of Windows. Be sure to use a secondary drive for user data/documents storage and for "scratch" drive locations and temp files, as on all desktop SSD installations, to keep your users very happy.

Style Name: Reseller KitSize: 240GB Verified Purchase
Intel has a good reputation as an SSD manufacturer. Even if they don't directly manufacture the device, they have high standards that some of the other vendors don't match.

This SSD has a capacitor for preventing corruption from power loss. A surprisingly low number of SSDs have a capacitor to avoid corruption.

These are expensive but there are few non-enterprise SSDs that have capacitors. If I had to do it over again, I would check out the new Crucial SSDs which are significantly cheaper and also have a capacitor. Either way, I wouldn't regret buying these again since Intel has a great reputation in this area.

I have read that they run hot. My case (Fractal Design Define R4) has a 140mm fan right in front of them. I wouldn't necessarily recommend a R4 (or Fractal Design) but a case with a fan in front of the drives may help.

Style Name: Reseller KitSize: 240GB Verified Purchase
[[VIDEOID:mo1GDDFAPMM8857]]Installed 2 days ago. So far so good. No problems installing or cloning hdd to ssd. Downloaded Intel tool box on hdd prior to installing ssd. Process to install was less than 30 minutes. Reseller Kit comes with SSD, SATA Cable, 4 screws to secure drive, cd warranty and instructions. Speed Demon Decal. The firmware was good from the start and no updates were required. Toolbox shows the SSD Life Status which allows you to have better control on usage. Running: Intel i5 - 3.4 GHZ CPU, Cosair 8 GB Ram, Intel Motherboard.

Update 8/23/14: SSD still performs great. I am using Standard Hard Drive for storage of files, photo's, etc. SSD still remaining at 100 percent life and drive health good on Intel's SSD Monitoring Software.

Update 5/2/15: SSD still showing 100 percent life. No problems running Windows 7.

Style Name: Reseller KitSize: 480GB Verified Purchase
My aging i7 desktop computer was purchased in 2009. After replacing the graphics adapter, I saw that the last real upgrade I can make to it (besides swapping out the motherboard, which would require a new CPU and RAM and is like basically getting a new computer) would be to move to a SSD. From the good reviews, I chose this Intel drive. The 480GB size would let it match my current 450GB drive, and I wouldn't have to uninstall software so that I could move my system over to it.

The drive came in a very small package with a SATA cable and a mini-CD. You'll need to have an available SATA power cable in your chassis. Since it's a 2.5" drive, I also purchased an adapter kit so that the drive could be mounted in the 3.5" drive bay (thankfully, the kits are cheap). I used the supplied cable to plug the drive into an existing SATA port on my motherboard, then dangled the drive from an existing SATA power cable that was available. Starting up the computer, the drive was recognized and Windows 8.1 offered to initialize it for my system. You need to do that if you want to access it with the Intel Toolbox or cloning tool (more on that later in the review). Initializing it didn't add any partitions to it, but let Windows now see it as an non-partitioned drive.

The mini-CD only contained basic operating manuals and no software. Choose the PDF for your language, and there were basic instructions and a link to the tools needed from Intel. Download the Toolbox and the Intel Data Migration Software (which is a stripped down version of Acronis software tailored for the Intel SSD), and install them.
