Reliability is good, but not the fastest

Photo Guy "Product Researcher", Amazon
14 June 2014
  • Summary: This isn't the fastest drive but for the price and reliability that Intel provides it is a good middle of the road option.

Desirable upgrade to older laptop

Sam Lynch, Amazon
24 August 2013
  • Summary: Tried and failed to install in desktop as some needed hardware was not included. However, it was relatively easy to install in an older laptop and the results are good.

Big speed improvement

Steven L. Erickson, Amazon
16 May 2013
  • Summary: I've installed numerous SSD drives. For a network client machine this is all the space needed for apps and o/s. Buying the Intel brand allows you to make use of the free cloning software that makes a bit by bit clone of your old hard drive so it is very quick to get up and running with these. With adequate memory, changing to one of these drives makes the difference between buying a new computer or getting a few more years of usable life.

Still working after 3 mos.

T. Hill, Amazon
18 March 2013
  • Summary: Still just as fast (and faster than original HDD) as when first installed. System consistently boots up in about 30 seconds and applications open in a snap.

Extremely fast out of the box

J. B. Conway "TDCJ", Amazon
16 February 2013
  • Summary: I bought 2 of these bad boys for two of my studio workstations. They are wicked fast out of the box, both systems boot up in about 5 seconds after the motherboard operation screen. The data transfer rate is screaming fast. I am awaiting for the speed degradation that I have read many reviews about, for now I will bask in the glory. ---- 2 months later The hard drives are still very fast.

Great little drive

J Larsen, Amazon
23 January 2013
  • Summary: I'm using this drive as an ESXi host cache, and it's been great. It's swapping rather large sets of data for a vertica cluster and performing like a champ. I replaced a bad buy from OCZ with this little fella, and my IO speeds nearly doubled. Highly recommended.

Good but so are other SSDs

Aaron Kreider, Amazon
22 January 2013
  • Summary: The reason this product is rated so high is because it is an amazing positive boost to go from using a regular hard drive to a SSD. So first-time SSD adopters, like myself, love this drive. If you don't own one - then you should get one. It will probably do more for your computer than upgrading the CPU, or getting more RAM (so long as you already have 4 GB). However that doesn't meant it is better than the other SSDs.

Performs great in a 2011 Mac Mini

H. Stamas, Amazon
1 December 2012
  • Summary: Using my My Mac Mini as a 24/7 file server and media hub. I wanted something that would run cooler and more reliably than a mechanical hard drive. This SSD did the trick. Easy to install following iFixit web site and has been running flawlessly.

Excellent drive, enclosed bracket not for Mac Pro

Sheraz Hanif, Amazon
2 November 2012
  • Summary: The drive is excellent and I would have given 5-stars. The enclosed bracket is not designed to fit drive slot in Mac Pro. I just plugged the drive in one of the drive bays and left it hanging there. I then ordered another bracket for $15 from amazon. Pro: Mac Pro (1,1) early 2006 Intel model used to take 1-2 minutes to boot having Western Digital Caviar Black drive. Now, it take 5-7 seconds. Cons: Enclosed bracket is not designed to fit Mac Pro.
