The Intel X25-M SATA Solid-State Drive (SSD) brings a new level of performance and reliability to laptop and desktop PC storage. Why wait for a traditional hard disk drive to spin up? Unlike traditional hard disk drives, this Intel solid-state drive has no moving parts, resulting in a quiet, cool, highly rugged storage solution that also offers faster system responsiveness. And for laptop PCs, the lower power needs of Intel SSD translates to longer battery life and lighter notebooks. Higher performance with more durability means you can be truly mobile with confidence.

Fast, quiet, small, cool
slow on small files
This is the best drives I ever tried. It make computing into the next level. Everything feels so different because virtually no waiting. It's funny how I still expecting the HDD to grind noisy everytime I shutting down the system, but there's no noise, wierd feeling.. but very cool indeed. Makes my computer into something different now.

Experience: 1 Months


* Raw speed
* Safety in a laptop
* Have to spend some time messing around with settings to protect the drive and get it to its max speed.
Bought one of these because my fiance was complaining that her laptop was slow. There was such a massive difference I now have one in mine and two raided on my desktop. Once you go SSD you will not look up. Installations often go as quickly as you can push next. On my desktop I used to have four standard 500MB seagates raided up and it beats it hands down even for raw transfer. Very impressed. Also bought a couple of ocz vertexes making a machine for a friend. No noticeable difference side by side though benchmarks will tell you different.

Experience: 1 Months


Very fast drive. Silent and low power usage. Great for HTPC.
The write leveling algorithm sometimes causes the drive to go into low performance mode.
I bought 3 of these Intel X25-M drives to put in a RAID5. The performance is excellent in the RAID5 configuration (seeing 500 MB/s reads and 250 MB/s writes with write back enabled). I ran into an issue where I reinstalled the OS a few times in a day and it caused the drives to go into low performance mode. A secure erase of the drives brought them up to proper performance again and I have been pleased ever since.

Experience: 1 Months


Excellent speeds and access times!
I always think that listing cost as a weakness is weak in itself but this time cost is the only the weakness I can think of.
This drive is simply amazing! However, make sure to update  to the latest firmware as it keeps the drive from getting slower over time. brendon_j's review has the proper links to the new firmware.

This drive makes any heavy IO bound apps works like a snap. I've tested this drive as a game development drive (tens of thousands of files used in a build process) and a Win7 OS drive and it's a rocket for both.

If you want to eliminate disk access as a bottleneck this drive gives you a huge leap in that direction.

Windows loads in 28 seconds.
Apps load instantly
Missed the sale!
I was hesitant to jump into the waters of early adopter - and this is probably my first 'true' enthusiast purchase but my expectations have been met and slightly exceeded with this drive.
I use it in my htpc which is now essentially fanless except for one noctura d 5v.
Windows boots as fast as i'd ever want it to (no point to enter sleep anymore).
Apps load instantly even the sluggish media portal application.

I've used several 'tweaks' on my xp install to help limit writes to the drive however with the new firmware (see bottom of summary) that shouldn't be as necessary.
-disabled page file and system restore
-moved my temporary windows files/temporary firefox files to a ramdisk (if you google you will find a free drive to do this but its limited to 32mb i use qsoft ramdisk).

update  THE FIRMWARE TO 8820
this will help a lot with fragmentation from preliminary reviews.

Amazing Fast
No Seek Time
No Moving Parts
High price for only 80GB
This drive was a big purchase, it is a lot of money to spend for a 80GB drive. But I couldn't be more impressed every time I start the computer up and window loads in 1/4th the time it used to. When prices come down I will definitely be getting more of these.

Experience: 3 Days


Size (data)
2.5" format
I bought this drive to replace my raid 0 and i immediatly seen a difference in games and windows. My games load faster and are responsivle immediatly, windows load faster, everything is faster !
The acces time and speed of the ssd drives are incredible and this drive does not suffer from the shutter issue noticed on Jmicron controller.
The only downside are the price and i had to buy a adapter to fit the drive into case because it is in 2.5" format.

Comment: Back at the Intel Developer Forum (IDF) in San Francisco last August, Intel provided an insight into its flash SSD family, and spelled out the main performance points.
