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

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.
I do highly recommend this SSD, for any desktop, or Laptop computer.
I just wanted to add this, after a good few month's or more of heavy use (at least 12 to 14 hours a day), I've encountered ZERO problems, and a tremendous speed increase in my laptop. This is just one of the BEST SSD's I've ever owned.
Reliable, Super Fast, Competitively Priced, Intel Quality....
You will love this drive as I do!
Also, get Acronis True Image 2014, it is the best program to have for backing up your PC.
It does everything. Cloning, Complete Image Backups, Options to backup to your own external HD, or to the Acronis Cloud (your choice)...and much more. The easiest user interface I've seen with Acronis yet, and it's fast! It works flawlessly with Windows 7 and Windows 8.
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 10/16/15: Still at 100% life remaining. Works very well using Windows 10 upgrade.
Update 5/2/15: SSD still showing 100 percent life. No problems running Windows 7.
The 850 pro (when it worked) and intel 730 are both zippy drives. Without benchmark software, I can't tell any difference between the two.
Installing the 730 was pretty easy. First, pop in the included CD and follow the instructions. Once I plugged in the drive and ran the optimization software, I used the migration software to transfer the contents of my old OS drive to the 730...turned an all day job into a 30 min job.
Only problem I had was, even though I finally plugged the 730 in the same port as the old OS drive, my BIOS messed up the boot order and wouldn't boot. I changed boot the order and it's been working ever since.
About a year and a half later the Intel SSD is still going strong in my Intel i7 gaming rig. I don't leave the computer on 24/7 but it is on for a good 4-5 hours every evening and then 48 hours strait every weekend so I would say that the drive has definitely had moderate use in it's life, but not what I would consider heavy use. The drive has also been though a computer rebuild when I went to Windows 10 and a single pass full disk wipe with Killdisk. I certainly would not hesitate to buy another Intel drive after the good experience I have had with this one.
*I have included screen shots of Crystal Disk and SSD Life results, both were taken when I wrote this review in December 2016 as well as comparison results for Kingston, Adata, and Samsung drives.
*I purchased this SSD on "the egg" because it was on sale but I have gotten into doing more reviews on Amazon and I wanted to share my good experience with this drive with others.
I simply cloned the drive from the old to the new and everything worked perfectly. You can get free drive cloning software from CNET dot com. They have several to choose from.
