I wish this had arrived DOA

Lee P., Newegg

  • Summary: I have at least 10 Samsung SSD's in use without a failure. This is my first Intel SSD and it is not leaving a good impression.
  • Pros: Pretty with the black spacer and cutout.

  • Summary: Got this for my Lenovo "E420s". It did not work at all when installed in the HDD bay. When computer booted, it would not find the drive at all. I had gone through creating a clone of my HDD onto this SSD via a USB enclosure which ran fine. But zero when actually replacing the drive.

Failed

Noah F., Newegg
13 April 2014
  • Summary: Currently in the process of performing a Warranty RMA with Intel, since this occurred outside the 30 Day Newegg Return Period. I will be very critical in their customer support and will post again. So far, Intel support is not looking good.
  • Pros: It is wicked fast, if it works.
  • Cons: After about 2 months, Windows 8 reported that volume manager had crashed and then BSOD. After that, my ASUS Rampage IV Black Edition stated this drive had failed the S.M.A.R.T Test. I tested it with another utility from another PC...Failure has been confirmed.

  • Summary: It's amazing sometimes that consumers do not read the basic operating print and look for name brand only. No one at any time should buy any of the older, current, or future Intel SSD's until they get their act together and provide the same basic features as other major brand SSD's.
