Summary: I bought the Intel 330 240GB SSD when it was on sale a year ago on Amazon for the ridiculous price of $140. I finally just put this in my Ivy Bridge build and used an after-market SATA 3 cable with the right angle connector for my case. I benched this thing and get 520 MB/s Write and 540 MB/s Read in ATTO. Win 7 64 bit Home Premium boots from power button to login in 10 secs (including POST). WEI is 7.9 on this drive with AHCI enabled.
Summary: This ssd rocks, not only because it's rock solid but it's been stable for many months now (late review) and hasn't skipped a beat! No loss of data or crashes. It may not be the fastest ssd out there but it works well and if your using it with a sata 6 port it's faster then most. It now runs windows 8 which barely has time to finish the first boot screen before it's done loading!
Summary: SSDs are a great upgrade for almost any computer that has a SATA disk interface. They really make a difference. The Intel migration software works really well. Intel does sacrifice a tiny bit of capacity for improved reliability. Intel is one of the top brands for SSD reliabiltiy.
Summary: I've been using this HDD since the day I purchased it in my desktop. I use it for gaming, web browsing, virtual machine hosting, and more. My computer is running Windows 8 and has never had a Blue Screen of Death with this drive (or other hardware). I'm very happy with the purchase and my computer has never been quite this responsive before with older SSDs.
Summary: I bought two of these six months ago, one for me and one for a family member and we are both very satisfied with this SSD. This is my first SSD and with windows installed on it my pc boots in seconds!
Summary: Probably the best upgrade you can make to any computer! The specs on this unit may not be the fastest out there but it's a huge speed advantage over a regular drive. Plus you get Intel reliability... research the fail rate on other SSD drives before you buy, big differences. Been running one of these in a VAIO laptop for better than a year, couldn't be happier with it!
