Excellent hard drive for basic system if you don't need much storage; three years and running
26 December 2014
Summary: My daughter's laptop got issue with the manufacturer's hard drive way too often. It was probably the way she laid it on her bed (that where they lives, college students), all night long when she was in college. She didn't need much storage, just the OS and a few basic software. I replaced the original hard drive with this Intel SSD. It's been three year, never heard of any issue anymore.
Summary: I use Intel SSD drives as the primary boot drives in very fast computers. When I type in my password the computer boots Windows 7 in one second! You get extremely fast start up, shut downs and loading of your application software. This drive is 160 GIGs and is a great size to use for the boot drive. It will hold your operating system, your other major software and run fast with room to grow.

Summary: in most cases, upgrading to SSD provides the most visible performance improvement per dollar compared to other upgrades on your computer. 120gb is a great size -- enough for your operating systems and the software you use most frequently. keep your pictures, movies, and music on an HDD or external. this is actually more slim than 2.5-inch sata HDDs, but it comes with a removable spacer so that it won't wiggle around in your drive bay.
