This has had problems

Todd Swenson, Amazon

  • 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. I would spend the extra money on a nicer quality drive. It's just average and I will only use it as a secondary drive.

  • 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.

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. Turning off the computer and rebooting helped. It would be perfect for a few days and freeze up again! I thought an Intel SSD was a sure thing!

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 Speed. This is found in "about This Mac" / Serial ATA. From what I've been able to find in various forums this is normal for the 2008 MacBook with the NVIDIA chipset.

Nice product but not that fast

Martin, Amazon

  • 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. I don't use it as a boot drive, My PC which is a Lenovo K330 already includes rapid boot technology, I suspect it can be enhanced with this SSD as boot drive, but I did not want to reinstall the SSD, so I use it for my frequent...

Drive failed in two months

LimitedGovernment, Amazon
5 September 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. The only reason I didn't give it one or two stars is because Intel promises that they will send me a replacement in five business days. Hopefully this next one will be better.

Uses More Power

jsbig "jsbig", Amazon
22 July 2012
  • Summary: Before I purchased this, I had a 128gb SSD in my Lenovo T500 laptop. I purchased this to increase my storage capacity. After I installed it, I noticed that my battery did not last as long. I did some research and learned that this SSD uses much more power at idle than the Samsung 830 drive. I returned this drive and installed that Samsung 830 256gb drive. My battery life improved by 20 to 30%.

SSD intel

Michel Robert, Amazon

  • Summary: Raisons de l'achat: SSD système très rapide et peu onéreux A l'utilisation, n'est pas un modèle de vélocité : 180Mo/s en lecture et écriture (avec CrystalDiskMark) Ne se compare pas en vitesse avec un Crucial M4 (sur le même appareil)
