Fast, Solid, Good price, No firmware issues
Build quality, Finishing
First of all, Intel SSD is worth the money for its performance. I have used Kingston SSDNow, OCZ Agility 4 and this Intel 320. I liked Kingston and Intel SSD for it's build quality, speed and reliability. Both Kingston and Intel ran smoothly out of box, but OCZ was a world of trouble. Kingston I had for about 2 years now still runs smoothly, but I wanted a bigger capacity so I picked up Intel cause it was on sale for about $150.

I haven't had any problem with it, did Prime 95, Everest stress test and had pc running for few days and everything looked fine.

The reason I took a star off was the finishing of the drive was very very very disappointing. The front of the ssd was nice and shiny with Intel logo. However the back of the SSD was roughly machined. Intel did not buffer it at all, you can see machine mark easily. And it is very obvious that the front and back of the SSD were two different type of metal. I wish I could post a picture and you'll see the back of the SSD uses a completely different metal that is soft and with many many many scratches. It looked like a badly refurbished product (I bought it brand new). However, since this is only cosmetic so I'll take one star off. Maybe I just got unlucky and got a bad finished product. A little disappointed with Intel (btw really love the Kingston SSD finish).

Experience: 2 Months


Boots up in 7 seconds and can access programs instantly after startup. Best performance boost I've ever seen in a PC. Well worth the hefty pricetag.
Had some problems with Windows where it would hang on installation. Solved it quickly with a Google search.
Make sure you download and run the system tweaking tools and Google what you need to know about SSD's if you've never owned one. My OS went corrupt after four months but it was my fault for not tweaking it properly. I think a lot of failures probably have to do with poor maintenance and setup on the user's part.

Experience: 6 Months


Fast, Reliable and comes with a nice 5year limited warranty.
Great drive for OS and games the fast drive allows for operating systems to boot in a matter of seconds and applications open so quick you'll wonder how you ever lived with the slower platter type hard drives that you can hear spin up and whine as it tries to keep up with the user.

New 5 year warranty updated from the previous 3yr offers decent security in case the drive does fail during it's life but the higher price of Intel SSD drives is from the quality that goes into each drive.
After 6months of usage as a primary drive and another 320 series for games, both drives are still at 100% estimated life remaining and a full green bar in the drives health.

The price might keep some buyers away but for a drive I can expect to get at least 5 years of use out of, the high price is made up over the time that it will last.

Experience: 1 Months


Great ssd. Bought for $149 with mir. Its fast, its furious. Did I mention its fast?

Sure its not the fastest ssd out there.
It's not the fastest ssd out there
Overall a great reliable ssd with enough space for your os, your most used applications aka games + more. As with all ssds, the practical application comes when its combined with a large hdd.

Experience: 2 Months


Fast, silent, reliable (so far), easy mail-in-rebate process
Pricey when not on sale
I went through several Corsair SSDs that failed (3 weeks for one SSD and 3 days for a second) and had to deal with their nightmare support. Eventually I received a refund from Corsair and bought two of these Intel SSDs during boxing week.

Great deal and includes a cable and mounting bracket. I use one in my desktop PC (120GB) and the other in a laptop (80GB). Great performance and very reliable so far. Highly recommended.

Experience: 5 Days


- fast
- reliable
- expensive and slow
- short warranty
- easy to get DOA
I bought this to upgrade my laptop and found out it was efficient and worth the time replacing. It boots really fast in less than 3-4 minutes and I am surprised this is worth the money rather than buying hard drives. I would suggest purchasing this.

Experience: 2 Weeks


-good waranty
For a SATA II ssd, this is not bad at all. There is definitely a major difference when I switched from my HDD to SSD. Performance is much faster and snappier. From what I learn, Intel SSD has one of the lowest return rates. 5 Year warranty from the Intel company is awesome. If it wasn't for the company's $70 MIR and some other IR deals, I don't think I would've purchased this. Overall, good quality, and definitely recommended for others.

Experience: 5 Weeks


Excellent speed
Easy to install
Light weight
Major difference if compared with hard discs. Booting only takes less than 8 seconds and takes much less time for file management. Price dropped but still quite pricey. I suggest you to buy one of these as ur system drive. I got mine around 210 and still waiting for $70 mir.

Experience: 1 Months


fast, solid, reliable, worry free
Bought this over OCZ/anything that used Sandforce because of the horror stories even despite the firmware update  it got. I didn't want to deal with headaches/RMAs so it was natural to purchase from intel as there were many rave reviews on the web.

compact and light
some ugly dried paint on the top (looks like a half-finished product)
rebate will be paid as american express gift card
It comes with the latest firmware, hope it fixed the "8mb bug". Installed OS on the ssd, need a longer time to see how reliable it is. The paint job just looks gross.
