Summary: Its been three years since I purchased and installed this ssd in my laptop that has since died.This ssd is now in my Ivy Bridge build and works great it is the 7.6 as my lowest sub score -windows experience rating if you pay attention to that ,but I am very happy to have bought this drive Intel rules!
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
Summary: Got this back in 2011 and by far I still have this as my main booting hard drive for my OS. It still runs perfect to me and Intel has a good warranty provided with it like most usual manufactures would. There is an updated new version with faster speeds but going over 200R/W seems fine with me already.
Summary: I bought this hard drive a year ago, and it's made a huge difference: my battery life almost doubled, and boot times have been halved. I did a lot of research into SSD reliability and the Intel 510 series was recommended in several places. I've had it for one year and have not had any problems with it. I'd definitely recommend this drive!
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.
Superb, Fast & Quiet, Boots Very Fast, Opens Most Apps Instantly
7 April 2012
Summary: Length:: 8:41 Mins This drive is whisper quiet, blazing fast, and has worked flawlessly. Being SATA III (6G/s) I never feel like disk access is a bottleneck anymore. Being SSD, it boots and loads applications and files with blazing speed. The Windows 7 64-bit OEM install disc had no problem detecting and formatting the drive and installing Windows 7 to it in such a short time it didn't seem possible.
Summary: I bought the Intel SSD to replace a fast Velociraptor 10Krpm disk drive. It installed easily and makes the Velociraptor seem like a floppy disk (for those of you who remember back that far). The odious Windows boot is no more. 10 seconds for the Gigabyte BIOS and 10 more for Win7. Trade reviews note this as being particularly reliable - as are all the Intel products I've used. Highly recommended.
