Do NOT BUY

Jeffrey J. Duscher, Amazon

  • Summary: My company has purchased these in all 250 laptops we bought and although we have only seen 2 8mb (HD dies and data is lost) issues as of now that is enough to stay away. Intel claims they fixed this in firmware version 2.0.10 but that is not the case. Do your self a favor and get a Samsung drive. The Samsung 840 PRO is a much better drive.

Mine died a month after the warranty ended with no warning. Lost everything.

  • Summary: Mine died a month after the warranty ended with no warning. Lost everything. It was snappy when it worked. I have no particular hate for this product. Bad things happen to good products. Just registering my bad experience as a service to those evaluating future purchases.

DO NOT BUY THIS DRIVE! Data loss and unrecoverable drive! Apple Mac Owners AVOID THIS DRIVE!

K. Amir "amiracle", Amazon

  • Summary: I've owned this drive for the last few months and this is the biggest waste of money. You will loose your data and you will not be able to recover from this drive. Do yourself a favor and just buy another brand drive, I cannot believe that this firmware 'bug' can cause so much damage. If you have a Mac, you CANNOT update the firmware using the Intel Update Tool.

TRASH!!!

P. Farmer, Amazon
18 February 2014
  • Summary: These drives are crazy fast, crazy durable, and crazy small. They will work like a dream for about 18 months, then they will start bricking; one-by-one. What will Intel do? They will send you a new 320 series drive, just to crash again. I love the speed, love the size, but I'm not going to risk my data on an Intel SSD ever again.

How this product is still on the market is beyond my comprehension

Beitie "Beitie", Amazon
27 January 2014
  • Summary: So I picked up one of these 320 series SSD's a short while after doing my last PC build. At first I was thrilled like most who get an SSD. My OS booted up so fast, and shut down speed was almost instant! Programs were decently fast, but nothing too special in my opinion. Only took a few months though, and the drive quit on me. 100% gone. Luckily I did run back ups, and had an image saved on my big 2TB drive.

Intel junk

RdL, Amazon

  • Summary: After easy installation on my Lenovo Thinkpad I immediately got a blue screen from the start and was never able to fix it. Tried it on another laptop. Same blue screen. Also tried to install Ubuntu. Still got a blue screen. Junk.

Beware Intel SSDs: DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!

hjbutler, Amazon
10 August 2013
  • Summary: The 320 series and many (all?) more recent Intel SSD disks are timebombs, waiting to force you to delete them in order to recover the disk: [...] I have just experienced this with my 160GB Intel 320 series SSD. This is a risk you probably can't afford to take. According to what I am reading now, the only way to get my data back is to have the drive disassembled by a data recovery lab and have the individual flash chips probed.

Failed ... Twice

Daniel Allen, Amazon
21 March 2013
  • Summary: Have had this product for about 8 months. Two months in I got the 8MB bug. I was able to reformat the drive and update the firmware. 8 months in the drive has another error. This time it will not even respond. Avoid this product and other products made of the same parts!!!
