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: Purchased this SSD as OS / Boot drive to install Windows 7 64 Bit to... Installation was quick and easy. The results have been spectacular as I have taken my friend's computer from booting at 1 the one minute mark to having him at his desktop in around 11 seconds after power on & the computer post. Reports applications are fast and responsive and loves the over all speediness of his system.
Pros: Intel makes some of the best SSD's on the market
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: I am impressed with the speed of this drive, huge improvement. Got running at full speed 6Gb/sec, AHCI, Win7 64bit. There are cheaper/larger ssd's out there but I wanted reliability and no hassles and I wasn't disappointed.
