Long warranty
Cons Price?

Intel reputation.
Cons Expensive when not on special.


Intel has built a good reputation for their SSDs.
If you value your data/reliability then Intel is the way to go.

It is not the fastest drive out there, but it is still one of the top units.

Comes with a 2.5/3.25 bracket, nice latching type SATA cable that is very flexible and a 4-pin molex to SATA power adapter cable.

Experience: 21 Days

Great price and fast performance. Nice 5 year warranty.
Cons None


I purchased both the 240GB and 120GB versions on the Boxing Day sale mainly because they were priced so low. I have always heard how fast these SSD's were so I thought I would put one in each of my PCs. Needless to say, I was very impressed with the overall speed boost that I experienced. I decided to go with Intel because they are supposed to one, if the most reliable SSD's on the market. If anything goes wrong, at least I have a 5 year warranty to back it up. I would have no problem recommending this to anyone. Worth every penny!

Experience: 3 Weeks

Quiet (no moving parts)
Super fast loading times
10 Second start up times even with loads of games and programs
High Quality
Cons lack of space? but thats expected


This is the best upgrade I have given myself in my new build
I got this for 180$ on boxing day sales

It simply does what it does out of the box, simply threw it into my CM Storm Stryker 2.5 inch mounting on the bottom, installed my windows 7 fresh on it

Start up takes 10 seconds

Installing, loading programs and loading games (even in game) is just ridiculously fast.

The storage on SSD's is still quite expensive though
Just get this and put your games and other programs on this

Keep your movies and music and photos from your DSLR camera on a 1 - 2 TB WD HDD

Perfect, done.

This 520 INTEL series SSD is a pure winner.

Experience: 7 Days

Very fast
5 yr warranty
Intel quality
Cons Price (when not on sale)


Very pleased with this drive so far. Installation in my X230 with Windows 7 done without any issues. Intel's Toolbox software works well and is a nice addition.

Performance gain over the Intel 510
Intel has the lowest RMA rate in the SSD/HDD industry
Fast, really really fast!
Cons Price tends to put this drive slightly higher than others on the market


I had an Intel 510 120GB in my PC, and needed to upgrade. I did a LOT of research into Intel when buying that 510, and only did a little bit when buying this one because of how well the last one performed. I learned that the M4's and the Intel drives were VERY close in design, with very few differences, however, I was aware the M4's performed better. Every benchmark out there will prove that.

The M4's were a little cheaper as well, however, I valued stability and reliability over performance, considering that any upgrade from a mechanical HDD to an SSD is substantial. I remember reading that it's normal for RMA's in the 3-5% range which most were, but the Intel drives were below 1%, that convinced me right there. Consider this, the price difference is usually the cost of shipping the drive back for RMA once in the lifetime of the product, and that doesn't count the value of the inconvenience of being without the drive for 3 weeks. Needless to say, I'm happy with the purchase, especially on sale for $189.99!

Intel quality
No firmware problems
Cons None


This may be the best 240gb SSD drive on the market. The firmware is solid and not likely to create  problems for you down the road.
Setup was quick and painless. It comes with everything needed for installation; mounting adapter and SATA cable.
This drive is a little pricier than other makes but is probably worth it. Great when it's on sale.

Experience: 1 Days


-fast, Reliable
Cons -make sure tirm is on dont keep writing to it over and over


if you write to it to much it will make it very slow but where talking about alot of writes. it is everything you would want and more.
