Summary: First and foremost, I had to RMA my first one back to Intel. My computer would cold boot itself once or twice a day. It had problems recovering from sleep mode as well. Intel turned it around quickly with little hassle. Second, the ghosting software does not properly ghost a Windows 8 drive.
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.
Summary: I dont have any complaining about the SSD, the quality of intel products is famous, but definitely you need to know (100 % sure) the compatibility of your machine with this SSD, because right now i have mi laptop with the same old HDD but with a USB 2.0 of 240 GB, pretty sad.
Pros: Installation in my 2009 MacBook Pro went smoothly, though you'll need a Torx T6 screwdriver for that. Everything feels much faster compared to the original hard drive, apps that used to take 5 seconds to open now start in under a second.
Cons: I can only get a 1.5 Gbps link speed instead of the full 3 Gbps, but that may be due to my computer and not a fault of this drive
Summary: Intel software made it really easy to clone my old drive and replace with this one. Also the Intel SSD monitoring software lets me know estimated remaining lifespan of the drive and perform routinte maintenance.
Pros: Super fast upgrade from my 7200rpm drive. Top notch Intel software.
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.
