Sudden death after 9 months of use in a high end system.

Summary: Cons: Sudden death after 9 months of use in a high end system without any over clocking. 9 month life in a product that claims to be 1.2 million hours mean time between failures is not acceptable. Yes I have a backup but it is still a drag to have your SSD fail. Lots of time lost. Pro: Was a fast pain free drive until it died.
Summary: Its been three years since I purchased and installed this ssd in my laptop that has since died.This ssd is now in my Ivy Bridge build and works great it is the 7.6 as my lowest sub score -windows experience rating if you pay attention to that ,but I am very happy to have bought this drive Intel rules!
Summary: I have star envy: I would love to have had the same experience as people who rated this SSD 5 stars, but mine was DOA. I purchased it in 2011, right before Uncle shipped me off to Korea. It sat undisturbed until recently when I returned to the USA and started a new build. Win 7 install couldn't find it and kept asking for a driver disk. Not a good sign! I used another computer to initialize the SSD, but it would not accept a new simple partition using disk manager.
Summary: Got this back in 2011 and by far I still have this as my main booting hard drive for my OS. It still runs perfect to me and Intel has a good warranty provided with it like most usual manufactures would. There is an updated new version with faster speeds but going over 200R/W seems fine with me already.
Summary: I bought this hard drive a year ago, and it's made a huge difference: my battery life almost doubled, and boot times have been halved. I did a lot of research into SSD reliability and the Intel 510 series was recommended in several places. I've had it for one year and have not had any problems with it. I'd definitely recommend this drive!
Summary: We have two workstations that use six each of these in raid5 with an lsi 9265 and we get over 2GB/s r/wr which is great for simulations and loading large datasets. However over one year weve had two drives fail, which were promptly replaced by intel. However there MTBF spec number is so high the probability if this occuring should have been zero.
Summary: Another hit for Intel. I am using this as my main program drive with an earlier 180GB Intel ssd as my scratch disk for Lightroom 4.3. I am very happy with the quality and performance of this drive. Packed and delivered well.
