Intel Solid-State Drives represent a revolutionary breakthrough that delivers a giant leap in storage performance. Unlike hard disk drives, Intel SSDs have no moving parts, resulting in a quiet, cool, highly rugged storage solution that also offers faster system responsiveness.

Drawing from decades of memory engineering experience, and industry-leading, compute-quality NAND Flash memory manufacturing processes, Intel SSDs are designed to deliver outstanding performance for a wide range of computing applications.

5 Year Warranty
Free Cloning Software (Uses Acronis)
Intel SSD Toolbox is a nice program especially for doing manual Trim in XP/Vista which do not support TRIM natively.
A tad expensive
OEM version comes in a small cardboard container basically with the drive and a small manual, no cables or adapters.

If you haven't already gotten an SSD, you're missing out. They are incredibly fast compared to hard drives, especially vs a 5400RPM notebook drive.

Intel name, 5 year warranty and fantastic speeds makes this one of the best SSD's out there.

Experience: 3 Weeks
No Lag,
Super Fast loads
10 second fresh start up with lots of games and programs on it
No moving parts
Sturdy and High Quality
Lack of space but of course its coming slowly
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.

reliable, reliable and reliable.
quite fast
great build quality
intel ssd tool is great addon
my sec intel ssd, after owning 330 series 240g. After having it for two month in my new build desktop, I finally did a full diagnostic (first 330 I did rt away, but now I trust intel ssd a lot). The interigty test failed on 62%. Without doubting about ssd issue, I put my 520 ssd into the same notebook which I passed test on 330. Test passed on 520 well. Yes, I trust intel ssd this much. And the intel tool lead me to find out my desktop memory issue. One of the four stick of memory is defective. That is cause of 520 test fail. After put in new set of memory, 520 test in my desktop passed as well.
my 520 as ssd benchmark scores best as 780. It's very fast in a matching up system, with good cpu and board. on top of the speed, realiable always first. Intel doesn't fail that. My thumbs up.

Issue with the X79 boards and Intel Rapid Storage
Issue with monitoring programs like SSDlife being able to properly read correect running time.
Great SSD for the most part. Bench marks are in the normal range for this type of SSD.
The only issue is with this SSD and Intel Rapid Storage on the X79 board. If IRS not updated to version 3.2 then S.M.A.R.T will not work on the SSD which renders part of Intel tool box not working. ALso causes other SSD monitos to not work at all. Also an issue with programs like SSDlife not properly recording the runtimes properly. E.G. mine shows a total run time 894835 hours (102.2 years. Know issue but unable to find a fix for it yet.

Nice performance
No problem so far with my drive. It also perform very well and I'm more confident into buying an Intel SSD than any other brand.

Fast and works well - not a sandforce :)
You pay for quality and stability for the Intel 520 I bought this because I could not back up my OCZ Revo 2. The downloaded tool from Intel site works well for preventative maintence on the drive. Definitely will buy this again

Ultra fast, 5 year warranty
I replaced my X25 SSD with this and did notice an improved performance.

Comment: Intel was rumored to be working on a SandForce based drive for several months now, but even the rumors couldn't encapsulate just how long Intel and SF has worked on this drive. According to Intel, the relationship began 1.5 years ago. Still lacking a 6Gbps controller of their own and wanting to

Comment: The old SandForce problems have vanished without a trace, and the performance of the new Intel 520 drive is very good.
