This has had problems

Todd Swenson, Amazon
3 June 2013
  • Summary: I looked at the reviews and some people were saying things about booting up with this drive and it running with some hiccups. I would agree with all of those complaints. My system has not run as smoothly as I would like since I've installed this.

  • Summary: This SSD seems to work well, however it is a replacement. The first one failed after onr week. Amazon was good about getting me a new one shipped quick and I also quickly returned the failed on. The one I have now seems to be lasting longer, just have to wait and see.

Problems with OSX Mountain Lion

Karl S., Newegg
16 January 2013
  • Summary: I hoped this would work with my MacBook Pro, and for the most part it is WAY faster than my previous (non-SSD) drive, but the extremely long hangs that occur throughout the day are less than ideal.
  • Pros: Very fast, makes no sound whatsoever
  • Cons: Causes my Macbook Pro to freeze for 20-30 seconds, about 8-10 times a day, depending on usage. I've tried enabling and disabling TRIM, there is ~80GB free space. When I use the Activity Monitor there is a huge I/O spike when these happen.

Fast while it lasted

StraightShooter "smtrader", Amazon

  • Summary: This is my first SSD though I have since bought 2 others (from different manufacturers). Bought this on 7/20/12 from Amazon. Very fast and installed just like any other hard drive...very easy. Worked great for a few months but started to freeze up, sometimes during booting.

Not good for a 2008 MacBook Unibody

TD, Amazon
22 December 2012
  • Summary: I dropped this into a 2008 aluminum MacBook with OS X Mountain Lion and noticed it wasn't as fast as I thought it should be although it was much faster than my old HDD. My MacBook has a SATA2 interface which allows 3Gigabit Link Speed but the drive would only negotiate a SATA1 or 1.5Gigabit Link...

They work

Anonymous, Newegg
21 December 2012
  • Summary: I threw these into my HP Envy 17" laptop. I was originally on two 500 gig 7200 rpm 2.5" HDDs in RAID 0. I moved to a pair of these in RAID 0. So far...I haven't seen any difference. Nothing boots faster, loads faster, etc.
  • Pros: Pick this up during the whole Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales. Was cheaper than normal, that's about it. Only moving parts in my laptop are now the fan and optical drive.
  • Cons: More expensive than a normal hdd. No discernible difference between these and my old 7200 rpm hdds. Maybe if I pull out a stopwatch, I'll be able to see myself save 1-2 secs loading a game level or something.

Good Drive - Horrible Install!

D. West, Amazon
28 September 2012
  • Summary: I purchased the 240 gig version of this drive and, now that it's finally up and running, I'm happy with it. I will be more confident 6 months down the road however. I upgraded from an Intel earlier generation 80 gig SSD because the operating system (Win7 Pro) and installed software were taking up...

Nice product but not that fast

Martin, Amazon
13 September 2012
  • Summary: I bought the 60GB model. Very well packaged, it contains all you need. I installed it on a SATA III (6GB) port, I confirmed this via the Intel Rapid Storage GUI Console. The Intel SSD toolbox software is very easy to use for all tasks.

Drive failed in two months

LimitedGovernment, Amazon
15 August 2012
  • Summary: This drive is fast and you get a lot of space for your dollar, but mine failed with a data integrity error within two months. I can't give this product anything higher than three stars for that reason.
