  • Summary: was think 600 when it appeared , now for this price is ok for a OS point of view. Boot is about 3-5 sec , shut down 1-2 sec. bought also a 250 Pro Samsung and let me tell you , that the package was just a simple cartoon box and a clear plastic sealed. And has scratches on the back; no idea if cause'was use before or cause' of the manufacturing process( or maybe that's why bought it cheap :) . But works fine 5 days in and happy with it .

Expensive, but good product

Andrew, Amazon
19 October 2013
  • Summary: Replaced my main hard drive in my late 2008 MacBook Pro with this, and its been working great (I think I've had it ~1.5 yr). SSD speed has helped this computer stay relevant a bit longer. (I moved my original hard drive to the DVD spot for increased storage on the computer.) This was one of the more expensive SSD options when I was buying. I bought because other reviews listed Intel as the most reliable brand at the time for the capacity I was looking for.

Solid product

Richard A. Deal, Amazon
7 September 2012
  • Summary: Works as promised. Replaced a 500GB 7200RPM traditional hard drive with this. My only compliant is that I couldn't find sizes larger than 160GB for SATA II unless you bump up to SATA III. Unfortunately, my laptop doesn't support SATA III. Otherwise, the product works great and I get very fast boot times.

SSD, or gobs of stuff in a quite box

Amazon Customer, Amazon
25 March 2012
  • Summary: I got what I ordered at a fair price, delivered as promised, thanks vendor. The 320 isn't the latest & greatest, but it works. I heard of kinks in earlier releases, but not here. Literally, I plugged in, turned on, bios said hello, and we were off to the install races. And it is quiet. Duh, no moving parts. The laptop's battery time has been increased, the boot time is smoke'n, and program load speed is appreciated.

Sweet price after rebate

Jackson KUO, Amazon
13 March 2012
  • Summary: The total price is $130 after rebate. Even if it took more than two months for rebate,it's worth!!! But the 8mb bug seems not fixed at all. So I give it 4 star.

Best Intel 3 GB/s mass market SSD drives

Richard L. Rankin, Amazon
5 March 2012
  • Summary: Runs great. If you want to use your SSD with a 6 GB/s connection, you have to go to the 500 series. Remember SSDs are not a panacea. Perfect in a notebook or as a boot drive. Otherwise, use it judiciously. A hardware RAID 10 of fast drives will beat it. The 520 180 GB size and up will make a good cache for a RAID array.

Great SSD

Brett Fricke, Amazon
27 February 2012
  • Summary: I bought this SSD because I was worried that moving around my laptop with a standard hard drive would eventually cause the drive to fail. I had a bit of a difficult time installing this drive on my laptop, but that is no fault of Intel. The installation of Windows 7 was a breeze and it boots faster than ever. From completely off to full startup, 12 seconds. Fantastic. The only issue I have is with the Intel SSD Toolbox. It allows you to see information about your drive.

what's missing from other reviews:

P. Chung, Amazon
10 February 2012
  • Summary: There are plenty of reviews about this drive's speed and reliability. I'll cover what they missed: -the screwdriver is a PH1. You'll need a PH00 to install this in a unibody MacBook Pro. -the silicone case is flimsy -- really flimsy. -the USB adapter is USB 3.0. You can safely use it in a USB 2.0 port, although you'll be limited to USB 2.0 speeds then. -the 3.5" adapter comes with plenty of screws to both mount the drive, and then mount the adapter.

Works in my ThinkPad T61p 6459-CTO

Noel E. Lecaros, Amazon
12 January 2012
  • Summary: This review is for the Intel 320 Series 160GB solid state drive COMPATIBILITY ============= The BIOS version was at 2.29-1.08, the latest available from Lenovo. I ran the SSD firmware update utility after installing this drive but it came back saying there were no firmware updates. It took all of 5 minutes to replace the existing drive, and it booted up with no problems. I use Windows 7 x64 Ultimate as the operating system. No special drivers were needed.

Awesome.

PugMan, Amazon

  • Summary: Wow! only 43 seconds from power on to logon prompt on a Celeron Laptop. Pretty snappy apps. I picked this drive after research and discovering that it comes with a 5yr warranty AND includes software for cloning your drive. I would have given 5 stars but I struggled with the cloning software. It kept forcing me to reboot then would not resume. I kept tinkering and it finally ran through the steps. Very easy once it started. Definitely recommend for laptops and older PCs.
