Fast but MTBF spec is flawed

EAI, Amazon
23 December 2012
  • 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: 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.

I like it but..

J-Dog, Amazon
29 December 2011
  • Summary: I tend not to look to much at performance reviews because coming from a conventional HDD system, these SSD are the bomb and the future. Not only speed galore, but no wear and tear issues, no mysterious clicks of death from a failing hard drive. I also never thought reliability with an Intel SSD would be a problem; no moving parts, until today.

Back peddling now

Randy P., Newegg

  • 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.

  • Pros: simple installation. Stable, quick read/writes

Very good drive, not the best this time.

RIP-Felix "When nothing is left in your bag o..., Amazon
2 July 2011
  • Summary: I upgaded from an X25-M 80Gb G2. That was the best drive available when it came out. This is a very good drive and with the rebate it's a good value too. Everything is snappy and responsive, not just programs and windows, but webpages too. The difference from my X25-M is noticable but not dramatic. If you are upgrading from a spinning HDD there is no better upgrade that speeds your computer up. SSD is pricey but well worth it.

Amazing new technology!

Stephen S. Kahn, Amazon

  • Summary: As an engineer who remembers IBM's 30 inch platter hard disk drives, this new SSD from Intel's 34 nm line is simply amazing. The ability to emulate a mechanical hard disk drive is at the heart of this technology, but the reason it will sell is SPEED! Quiet, cold, and FAST. My Windows 7 Experience Index for disk performance went from 5.9 (HDD) to 7.5 (SSD). Boot times are twice as fast and windows just snap into place.

speed but with 1 problem

nemptol, Ciao
10 July 2013
  • 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. I think this was because my motherboard has SATA 2 and had conflict with SSD SATA 3 i tried to bios update and now is working but not fast as before. I tried in other motherboard with SATA 3 and work fine. One more ...
  • Pros: speed
  • Cons: better to use it with sata 3 motherboard

Intel 510 Series 120GB Solid State Drive SSD 2.5IN SATA 6GB/S Elm Crest

Sheehan, pricebat.ca

  • Excerpt: Quickly, easy set up, nice accessories Occasionally will pause when opening apps which surprises me considering that I upgraded from the x-25M 160GB SSD which zipped by way of almost everything. This SSD is rapid but "sometimes" not as rapidly as my old X-25M, can't figure it out. . May switch more than to OCZ Vertex three when its released if pricing is comparable. Once more, this guy is quick but not as quickly as I expected.

Intel 510 Series 120GB Solid State Drive SSD 2.5IN SATA 6GB/S Elm Crest

Tale, pricebat.ca
11 June 2013
  • Excerpt: The drive is extremely quickly as many SSDs are. Applications open really swiftly. The tools that come with it are good for setting up the drive for optimal performance. It only scored a 7.1 on the Windows benchmark for drive IO. I had a G2 on a laptop score a 7.8. It appears that overall performance has gone backwards on the G3s. I'm wondering if I shouldn't have waited for the G3s to come out.
