Summary: I am currently using 3 of these at home and 2 at work, same drive and model. Of the 5, I've only had a slight issue with 1. Immediately after installation, I had one of these lose the boot sector. I rebuilt and have now been using it for over a year without any problem.
Summary: just an amazing SSD for the price, the only flaw is there's no Temp sensor but they never get hot anyways I have mine installed in a inlet extreme board DZ68BC with a Intel® Core™ i5-3570K with a corsair h80 liquid cooler Kit, 16 GB's of Kingston HyperX FURY 1600MHZ Overclocked at 1866MHZ and...

Summary: Purchased while on sale. Like most people now I prefer the speed of a SSD drive , I use intel SSD drives for desktop builds and for macbooks. The speed of the 520 is just fine, quite good for the generation of its design .

Summary: These Intel drives have been the single biggest performance boost for computers since the introduction of multi-core processors. We have several users who were complaining about the performance of their Adobe Creative Suite software, and these drives made a dramatic difference.
Summary: Was going to retire an old desktop PC. Replaced the hard drive with the SSD and the boot time is with in 15 seconds! Used to take many minutes to boot windows 8. Application responded faster too. So keeping the old desktop. It's a pentium 4. Update. One more thing.
Summary: I put this in my five year old quad core laptop and it absolutely brought new life to it. It is fast, reliable and does not seem to cause heat issues. What more can one want than that? I put this in place of the main drive, pulled out my DVD R/W drive and put my 1 TB drive in the multi-bay.
Summary: You can always trust Intel to make great computer parts, aside from just their processors. This legacy SSD was no exception, either. I bought the thing for around $65 to upgrade my notebook's storage and using it made the whole PC run about 2 and a half times faster!

Summary: Works great but it came with a spacer to adjust from a 7mm thickness to a 9mm thickness. Unfoprtunately the screws that hold the spacer on also hold the top on. So if you need ot take the spacer off you will need screws to hold the top on or do as I did and just tape it down.
Summary: My old C: Drive on my Windows pc kept running out of space. Every time I loaded up a new version of Windows, it would save the old version as a .old file, taking up tens of gb. By the time I got to Windows 10 Technical Preview, I had to upgrade to this drive.
