Summary: Save the $10, buy the OEM Intel 520-120GB, forget the premium for a poorly thought out piece of metal, and a tiny cardboard box.
Pros: Its an intel 520?
Cons: The 2.5" > 3.5" mounting bracket that comes with this model does not align the connectors with standard 3.5" SATA headers. How hard would it have been for Intel to let this mount off-center, to ensure the connectors align to the standards?
Summary: I've had a number of things from Intel, all of which were great but this has let me down. I wouldn't get anywhere near advertised speeds, I was only topping 200MB/s! Amazing build quality though, which is why I gave it two stars. I would recommend going for a Samsung Drive instead, I got a 840 Pro to replace this at it works brilliantly.
