Summary: Bought this to replace my good old X-25M 80GB drive which I got since release and its been as stable as a tank ever since. I gave it to my father for his new PC and I had to get a good reliable drive for myself. This Intel 520 was the choice and I don't regret it. Works flawlessly, no issues at all. Really glad that I got it. If reliability is priority, get this.
Summary: The Five year warranty in a industry where two and three are common really stands out for me. Most people will upgrade prior to the expiry of the warranty anyway. I have had another for a week now I picked up off a bitcoin store so I ordered another from NCIX to fit my steam library.
Summary: Bought this SSD when it was on sale. It can boot up the computer in less than 10 seconds which is nice when having to restart multiple times after installing updates for a new built computer. I regret not going for 240 GB though, because I almost used up my 120 GB on window's operating system, games, and programs. I love Intel's quality SSD and will have to buy 120+ GB in the future.
Pros: - Boot up time is less than 10 seconds., - Price
Summary: This is my second Intel 520 Series 120GB SSD. The first one I purchased over a year ago. If you've finally decided to give an SSD drive a try, then I highly recommend the 520 series 120GB drive. It's still affordable with enough space to install Windows 7/8 with your apps and still have some room left. It may be priced higher than other SSD drives out there ($ per/gb) however, know you're getting amazing quality and durability out of an Intel branded SSD drive.
Pros: 6GB/s transfer rate., Fast read & write., Great support and quality from Intel.
Cons: Slightly more expensive than other SSD's BUT, worth the money!
Summary: When Intel sent the warranty replacement it was used and failed in the same manner. After paying the cost of the drive for a cross-ship for the first drive, they demanded that amount again for the replacement of the replacement.
Pros: 3/5 drives work.
Cons: I received one bad drive (out of 4 I purchased). The drive errored out upon initial fdisk. Because a month had elapsed I contacted Intel directly for warranty service. I paid the price of the drive to facilitate a cross-ship.
