Good while it works.

Pros: The drive is silent and incredibly fast. I do a lot of gaming and most of the time the game loads before I can even read what is on the cutscenes. Also love the fact that the drive is so tiny and doesn't get hot.
Cons: My drive lasted 1 year and 3 months and a few days ago it started locking up on me. Thankfully I was able to backup everything before the BSODs began. Hopefully I will still be under warranty. I purchased this back when it was over $400 because it was the most reliable SSD around at the time. Hopefully, I am able to get a replacement soon.
Summary: Look out for random reboots/"blue screen" and undetected drive on boot. Tip: look for lots of ratings (good sample) and then look at % of 1 and 2 star ratings. Samsung seem good, Intel not enough data on Amazon, though anecdotally, I've had an older X25M running in a web server constantly on for 3.5 years. The problems are usually firmware related, since these things have no moving parts.
Summary: 3 ans que je le possède, j'ai eu le gros souci de plantages après les 5200 heures d'utilisations du ssd et la mise à jour obligatoire pour pouvoir l'utiliser est un peu fastidieuse.A par se gros bug, ce ssd est tres performant mais avec sa capacité limité il est juste bon pour héberger le système d'exploitation et les pilotes de la cm, cg . J'ai installé les programmes et les jeux sur un autre DD.
