Intel SSD 120GB

Eric C., Newegg
1 November 2012
  • Summary: I was worried about some bad press I saw for SSD's with reliability issues. This drive has worked from day 1. $$ per MB is high compared to traditional hard disks but the performance of an SSD is worth the price.
  • Pros: Reliable Easy Installation Fast
  • Cons: 120GB fills up quick

Now, its reliable

Geoffrey S., Newegg
10 May 2012
  • Summary: If I had it do over, I would buy a 320 series rather than this drive, only because I discovered my computer does not support SATA III, so I am not getting the benefit of the S.III fast read/write times this is capable of.
  • Pros: I bought this drive in March of 2011, and it died after just a few days. I exchanged it for a replacement from NewEgg, and the replacement died about 5 months later. I RMA'd dead drive #2 to Intel and paid Intel's $25 rip-off fee for cross shipment (seriously, extracting $25 so the customer won't...
  • Cons: Cost per GB has come down during the past year, but it’s still very expensive. Intel's 5 year warranty is overall excellent when compared with competitive drives. However, as I mentioned previously, if it breaks you have to pay Intel $25 for cross shipment, or in the alternative, wait several wee...

Crazy Fast!

Joshua W., Newegg
24 January 2012
  • Pros: Connected to a 6GB port, this SSD hard drive is crazy fast and lacks nothing in performance. I chose the Intel brand not because of price (obviously), but because of quality.
  • Cons: This hard drive is a bit expensive compared to others at this speed/size.

Great drive, but it died...

Ira Z., Newegg
15 January 2012
  • Summary: One day, I got a random BSOD with a hard drive error. So I immediately made a Ghost image backup. The next night, the drive failed to be recognized by my computer bios; in addition, I was unable to access files with the drive from an external enclosure.
  • Pros: Speedy! Intel warranty support was excellent.
  • Cons: It died after 8 months. NOT what I expected from an Intel drive...

Great SSD overall

patrick s., Newegg
19 December 2011
  • Summary: I think you're paying extra for more rigorous QC on these drives. I've used OCZ drives and they were faster as far as writes go but MUCH less reliable. I'll trade off a bit of speed for rock solid reliability any day.
  • Pros: Very solid stable SSD with pretty good speed Install was easy and hassle-free Photoshop installed in 5 seconds from an exe saved to my computer Moving/copying is a breeze Computer boots really fast
  • Cons: Not quite as fast read as some of the competition More expensive than similarly performing drives from other MFG Lower write speeds than competition

Back peddling now

Randy P., Newegg
13 December 2011
  • Summary: In any event they got me a new SSD quickly and thats what matters. They did not make me jump through hoops like some companies do.
  • Pros: Okay, even though Intel has a fairly obscure RMA process they did handle my RMA quickly and the return was pretty fast.
  • Cons: I still think Intel needs to build in an RMA process on to their web site instead of leading you through multiple pages until you find the phone number to call.

Great TRIM utility, Very Fast, slowly getting cheaper

Allen Woolley, Amazon
9 December 2011
  • Summary: My System: An ASUS G73JH i7 laptop and 8GB Memory I replaced one of the two Seagate hard drives in the laptop with a 120GB Intel 520 and now everything is very Very fast: Power on to the Win7 Ultimate desktop in under 30 seconds is remarkably convenient.

pretty cool

ryan e., Newegg
5 December 2011
  • Summary: Its nice but not nessiary in my eyes, at least because of price. SSD is still to expencive to rationalise its use to the average consumer.
  • Pros: First time with SSD. Seemed like just any other HD to install. Seems faster but then I have been using 6g/s drives for a while now. Start up/ reboot is quick.
  • Cons: Price, minus an egg cause these all seem to be way over priced in my eyes.

User Review

Paul M., Newegg
30 August 2011
  • Summary: Its a big of a hassle to get Newegg to send something to Hawaii. Most other places have accepted that Hawaii is the same distance from California as New York is... I bit the bullet on this one because other sites won't ship SSDs to Hawaii and Newegg has a rebate on this product that covers the...
  • Pros: Fast, easy to install, comes with 3.5" bay converter, plenty big for Windows 7 and all my apps.
  • Cons: None so far. Write speed could be faster, but that normally doesn't matter.

Declined Rebate

Gary S., Newegg
16 August 2011
  • Pros: Great drive, fast and reliable.
  • Cons: Expensive, even with rebate. Declined the rebate because somehow the "Postmark date is outside offer's time limit" even though I mailed it in time. Infuriating.
