There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The transfer was a bit of a sticking point. I was unable to use an existing external 2.5" drive case) to do the transfer with the included Acronis software, since that case apparently does not transmit full enough device info to the OS, which caused the software to exit. I wound up buying another transfer cable at extra expense.
The transfer software then finished successfully on the first try, but I didn't much like the way it apportioned the space. My wife's old 500 GB drive had a 1.17 GB system partition, and a recovery partition of about 10 GB at the end, with the space in the middle taken up by one last huge partition. I began by archiving wasteful data, getting her C: partition down to about 80 GB, then was able to shrink that partition (at somewhat of a hassle due to "unmovable files"; Google is your friend if you are having the same issue). I then had 1 1.17 GB partition, followed by an ~80 GB partition, followed by a bunch of unused space, followed by a ~10 GB hidden recovery partition.
Well, the way this all transferred over, the 1.17 GB partition grew to 2.8 GB, the recovery partition grew to about 23 GB, and the rest was given to the C: partition, with no unused space left over. It is a bit irksome that I will have to someday monkey about with partition management software if my wife is to see the full use of her purchased drive space, though for now I'm leaving things as-is.
Pros and cons of this model as I see them:
+ Intel is known for reliability of their SSDs, extremely much so, due to extensive engineering and testing in this area; Intel's reliability engineering for this drive is reported to include creating special firmware with the manufacturers of the Sandforce controller itself
+ A huge leap forward in speed, compared with the 510 series and previous laptop SSDs from Intel; this drive is screaming fast for both reads and writes, and competitive with the best laptop SSDs on the market today
+ Spacer/shim can be removed to use the drive in slimmer late-generation 7mm laptop drive bays, as well as left in place for older 9.5mm ones
+ Transfer software is included to make cloning an old drive easier (though it may entail a bit of extra expense, as it did for me)
+ Intel SSD Toolbox software eases maintenance of the drive, and is free
+ A 5-year warranty is included
- SandForce controller may mean less reliability than previous Intel drives; frequent backups are advised for important data (always advisable anyway)
- SandForce technology means this drive is not as power-miserly as many previous Intel drives (though it is also much faster, which must be weighed in any determination of efficiency); the drive has been tested independently by StorageReview as drawing much more power at peak than Intel claims in marketing info, and draws somewhat more (about .8 watts instead of .6) at idle, which is about middle of the pack for power consumption of late-model SandForce drives
- Transfer software simply grows all pre-existing partitions proportionally, which is guaranteed to be wasteful for such items as system and recovery partitions; to avoid this, one should take care to match partition sizes to about the capacity of the target drive prior to transfer, a step that I would have appreciated being advised to take
If you are on the market for an SSD - you cant go wrong with this.
P.S. My samsung SSDs are going strong too. So if you are looking for a sata 3 ssd - both the samsung 830 or the intel 520 are great choices with very little to separate them. You cant go wrong with either.
Update 12/2012 - Well - it has been nearly 9 months now. I've reformatted the disk and installed Windows 8. It's still performing marvelously. I've installed the intel SSD optimizer and run it on a regular basis. This one is going to be a keeper.
I benchmarked my drive today @ 491.80 MB/s Read and 287.07 MB/s write, total score at 713. Very fast and high score.

Ahora bien, si estás pensando en un disco SSD de Intel a día de hoy (6-sep-2014) te recomendaría la serie 530, que es el modelo renovado y es más barato.
Da ich schon seit längerem 2Jahre eine 520 180GB Version nutze und diese immer noch bei 100% steht hatte ich gedacht das die neuere schneller wäre. Die kleinere 180GB ist jetzt umgezogen in einen Notebook und mein Desktop hat eben diese wieder bekommen. Intel ist nicht die schnellste SSD aber sehr zuverlässig und damit eine volle Kaufempfehlung. Ich hatte noch nie Probleme damit. Habe auch schon andere Hersteller gehabt.
Prefetch, Superfetch, Defragmentierung, Indizierung und den hybriden Standby Modus mußte ich aber selbst deaktivieren.
Entgegen anderer Rezensionen zu diesem Artikel (nicht der Produktbeschreibung) wurde aber nur die Festplatte ohne jegliches Zubehör geliefert.
Der Lieferumfang umfasst wirklich nur die SSD. Keine Kabel, keine Schrauben, keinen Einbaurahmen und auch keinen 2.5 -3.5 Zoll Adapter.
Zum Glück hatte ich selbst alles, was man für den Einbau benötigt.
Man bekommt also hier, wenn man den letzten Produkttests glauben schenken kann, eine SSD von akzeptabler Qualität zum kleinen Preis - so weit so gut.
Zwei Sterne Abzug gibt's allerdings, weil die Produktrezensionen darauf schließen lassen, dass man hier die Retail Version inklusive Zubehör erwirbt, was definitiv nicht der Fall ist.
ich kann das vorbehaltlos zu 100% empfehlen. Da ich Softwareentwickler bin ist sie wirklich
jeden Tag im Einsatz ausser Wochenende. Ich habe die Platten jetzt schon einige Zeit im Einsatz
und es gibt nicht mal den Anschein eines Problems.
Direkte vergleiche mit anderen aktuellen Platten habe ich nicht gemacht - insofern subjektiv bewertet.
