  • Summary: Installed this SSD in an HP G60 over 2 years ago and have gone from Win7 Pro to Win8 Pro to Win8.1 Pro since then and I cannot lie that this SSD has done nothing but blown my mind with it's speed and reliability. It wasn't always perfect; in the first few months it would lock up occasionally for about 20 seconds or so every few weeks, but it has not done so for over a year and a half. (Firmware updated itself? I never did anything to it! Who knows..
  • Pros: Super fast, reliable like no other, it's an Intel
  • Cons: Very, very expensive

I wanted to love this SSD but it was DOA

  • 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.

Fast but MTBF spec is flawed

  • 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.

  • Summary: My first 510 bricked in a few months, but after much searching I learnt that there are several sleep settings that are detrimental to an SSD. Since adjusting those, no problems. This is just an SSD thing.
  • Pros: Fast, good price point and a reliable company. Fast RMA
  • Cons: Repeated and frequent sleep may have killed it.

  • Summary: I purchased this SSD about two year and a half ago and its very reliable. Thanks to Intel QA. However I think that its possible today to find better alternative at lower price. Upgrading from classic hard drive to SSD mean a huge performance gain in application loading.
  • Pros: Fast., Reliable.
  • Cons: too Expensive.

Died faster than regular drive

Greg G., Newegg

  • Pros: I loved the speed. Got a fast score from Windows 7
  • Cons: , but it died in 9 months. That's too fast for me and too expensive to have dud out like that. Of course I expected for the huge amount of money that it would last longer than that.
