I wanted to love this SSD but it was DOA

Call_Them_As_I_See_Them, Amazon
10 November 2013
  • 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.

Drive failed within 6 months

RampantAndroid, Amazon
8 January 2012
  • Summary: The drive is plenty fast, but has begun to hard lock in windows. Windows passed it on a chkdsk run, but the Intel SSD utility is reporting a read error (with no proper information as to what the failure is - it just tells you to contact Intel. How wonderfully cryptic.) I have magnetic drives that are 8 years old and still run, and this drive can't last 8 months.

Slow/ Won't work on a Mac

Aileron, Amazon
22 December 2011
  • Summary: If you are buying an SSD to see a dramatic increase in speed, do not get this. Intel is using a Marvell controller to save money, and as with most Marvell controllers, the performance is less than stellar. I noticed no real-life improvement over an existing RAID 0 set up. I switched the drive from a windows machine to an iMac and the performance was still poor. I get faster boot times with an old Intel X-25 than the Intel 510 series.

Disappointing drive locks up regularly

Stephen F. Abbot "Stephen Abbot", Amazon
13 November 2011
  • Summary: Tried to use the drive as a primary OS drive for a new ASUS G53SX-A1 with Win 7 64 bit. Following installation, OS would regularly freeze lasting on average 30-90 seconds 1-5 times an hour. Some research found numerous reports of freezing, or worse BSOD common to the drive. I put in for an RMA for a different SSD from Amazon (Crucial 256GB m4 SSD 2.5" SATA III CT256M4SSD2) and could not be happier. Thank you Amazon for excellent return policy.

  • Excerpt: I'm positive its extremely rapid! At the moment it doesn't appear to be supported by OSX, which fairly a lot limits my MacBook to a paper weight for now. If you're looking to upgrade a new MacBook Pro to this SSD, I would wait.

  • Excerpt: When it works it is awesomely rapidly. It does not work, it worked for a day when installing and so on. now it will not even boot. Do a search for "mac rumors 2011 Macbook Pro 13 - several beachballs with 510 SSD" and the 1st result need to be a relevant discussion with much more information (looks like Newegg does not appreciate URLs).

  • Excerpt: Неработоспособная модель, несмотря на все заверения в надежности. Последующие проверки Скандиском выявляли многочисленные неисправимые ошибки.
  • Cons: Попользовался 3 дня в качестве системного диска. Потом неожиданно завис и больше с него загрузиться уже не удалось. Несмотря на попытки переустановить Windows7. Процессор и чипсет Intel.
