Experience: 1 Years
Great SSD, would buy another. You pay for the name but for my application, it's worth it.

Experience: 12 Months
Fast, quiet
Had this drive for a year and two weeks when without warning it gave out and became unbootable. Intel is going to replace it, but a word to the wise...always do a backup. Ncix was great when I called and confirmed the warranty period and gave me a number for Intel. Next time I buy a component I will buy the ncix component exchange.

Been running this for at least a year and still running strong.
None apart from a slight sacrifice in speed for SATA2 interface.
I'll give this one five stars because this has been going strong for at least 1.5 years now. From my experience with other drives... the Intel gives me the most peace of mind. It's reputable and actually stable.

Solid and one of the most reliable SSD on the market.
Only Sata II
This is a well know reliable SSD, great and reasonable priced if you PM it.
The only con is that it is just a SATA II drive, but if you have an old mobo, like the X58 go for it, you can't go wrong with it.

Lightning fast - great for OS drive
Not as spacious as a HDD
Purchased as an OS drive for an older system - and you can really notice the difference... 30 seconds from power on to usable Windows desktop (everything loaded).

Plus it's an Intel, so it is certain to be well built.

Experience: 3 Months
Plenty fast.
None so far.
I bought this in mid-December after lots of research on solid state drive reliability. I was really afraid of all the horror stories surrounding solid state drives but I finally made up my mind and got it. So far I haven't had any problems and the drive already came with the latest firmware (to supposedly solved the 8 MB bug). I've only been using the drive for about 3 months though so I might add another review after a year or so.

As for speed, I have a 3.5 year old laptop and so my system is limited by a SATA I connection. For this reason I haven't run any fancy speed tests to compare the Intel 320 to other models such as OCZ but for what it's worth, the Windows 7 experience index indicates 7.7 for the primary hard disk. Woot.

Good assists from Intel with their dat Magration software, great speeds and super low power consumption, rebate arrived with no problems but its use is problematic.
you really need to use the Intel SSD Tweak program to get decent speeds, rebate has to be used to the exact last cent to get all of it
my use was for a Samsung N310 netbook (the one with the 3G MODEM). I wanted longer battery life and altho the N310 has the lesser power consumption Intel Atom N270 Processor 1.60 GHz it was giving only just over 5h battery with a lot of powersaving options. This drive consumes 0.1w standby and 1.5w actice about one third that of the installed drive. I get 7h now on an 80% charge (battery saver mode) and well over 10h if I fully charge it.

I get (large file) reads at 131MB/s and writes at 121Mb/s the former drive was something around 35MB/s. I was not a lot more before I ran Intels tweak software and I was not happy at that point.

When I bot last Nov the drive price was $279 it is now $309

Shudda bot 2 and would have if I found out thet you could get two rebates.

Fast (Compared to standard HD's), Reliable
Cost, Only Sata 2
If you are looking for a reliable fast SSD, then Intel is always the best choice.

Includes bracket for install
Power management conflict with my CPU (solveable)
If you are looking for a quick, reliable SSD with a little extra space over some of the other drives out there then this is a great choice when it comes on sale.
