Features    [ Edit | History ]

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. Intel SSDs also feature low write amplification and a unique wear-leveling design for higher reliability, meaning Intel SSDs not only perform better-they last longer.

Five year warranty
Price with respect to storage capacity.
The Five year warranty in a industry where two and three are common really stands out for me. Most people will upgrade prior to the expiry of the warranty anyway. I have had another for a week now I picked up off a bitcoin store so I ordered another from NCIX to fit my steam library.

Experience: 5 Months
- Boot up time is less than 10 seconds.
- Price
- Wish I went for 240 GB.
Bought this SSD when it was on sale. It can boot up the computer in less than 10 seconds which is nice when having to restart multiple times after installing updates for a new built computer. I regret not going for 240 GB though, because I almost used up my 120 GB on window's operating system, games, and programs. I love Intel's quality SSD and will have to buy 120+ GB in the future.

fast, reliable, 5 year warranty, intel tool box software
Great drive. Makes Windows 8 bootup time less than 30 seconds. 5 year warranty is as good as it gets for ssd's. The retail box version also comes with a mounting adapter for 3.5" drive bays.

Experience: 4 Days

- Comes with mounting Bracket
- Comes with Screws
- Fast boot times
- 5 year Warranty
- Drive is having issues on windows 8 pro fresh install.
- Occasionally real slow boot times over a minute.
Might have a DOA one. Has various issues. Sometimes it takes over 1 minute to load windows 8. Other times it boots under 8 seconds.

Out of hibernation i have a windows 8 loading screen frozen,, not always but has done it a few times.

Performance could be better.

Super Fast
Supposed to be super reliable
Limited read and writes
not great compared to gb/price compare to HDD
I have my O/S save on here and a few games, and now boot up is crazy fast. My game would usually take about 30 sec to start up but on my SSD, it takes about 10 sec!

I picked Intel cause they have less failure rate compare to the other SSD

Price, performance, reliability
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 also love the fact that they give you every accessory you need inside the box. 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!

Fast boot, fast overall
low storage but that's ssd so get another HDD for media
Hooked this up with my old 500gig seagate and my pc performance improved alot! windows and all my program are on it and it boot very fast wich is the biggest improvement IMO... at this price it may not worth it over other ssd retaling for about 120$ but I paid 100$ on special so it was a great deal and ssd truely improve performance !

Experience: 3 Weeks

Intel reliable quality?
doesn't look the best
It can sustain a more steady fast transfer speed than my Mushkin. Big difference compare from HDDs. You will never turn back to HDDs for the OS drive.
