Pros: The drive is quick. No doubt about it. Especially when you come from a conventional drive like I did. I tested a vertex 3 and liked it and I really couldn't tell much of a difference between the two on my marvell controller (which is already limited by it's single pci express bus). Windows 7 64 b...
Cons: So here is my biggest con... I went with intel because it was supposed to be a reliable drive right?

Summary: I posted ealier that after 50 days the SSD failed and was posting "Data Integrity Scan Failure." Intl said the unit had failed and needed to be replaced. In preparing to send in the SSD, I discovered why the SSD was giving this "false" failure message.

Excerpt: In my opinion this Intel SSD is worth buying but i think i found 1 little problem i install it on my pc with win 7 everything was very fast an perfect but when start copy files from another pc (network) windows crashed and i had to reset.

Demasiado caro para mi gusto, me parece que intel tendria que pensar un poco mas en el bolsillo de la gente, ellos se hacen ricos pero nosotros somos cada ves mas pobres.
