New Egg and youtube have done providing useful testing results and comments

  • Summary: I am not commenting on this SSD's performance as others on Amazon, New Egg and youtube have done providing useful testing results and comments. My comments are on the the lack of software to clone/transfer your Windows computer hard drive to the SSD as a replacement drive. The pamphlet included by Intel instructs you to down load data migration software from their site. This is where the problem lies.

  • Summary: Purchased in Nov 2013 and failed early July 2014... So lasted much less than a year! Very disappointed. SSD with no moving parts and it still fails that quick!

High Failure Rates

  • Summary: This SSD comes with all the essentials you need, such as a mounting bracket, cables, and a plethora of screws. In concept, this is a very convenient package for those upgrading to a SSD. Unfortunately, like many other reviewers here, I have experienced unusually high failure rates. The first unit I received was dead on arrival. The second unit lasted a month. The third and last unit lasted 5 months.

Warning - cannot reboot with this SSD on many older machines

  • Summary: I was in the market for an SSD for my mid-2010 Macbook Pro, as it is getting on in years and compared to my more recent laptop is running pretty slow. This HDD had great reviews and was on special, so I grabbed it. I saw a headline about poor reliability in the reviews, and assumed they meant some drives go bad and that most people were fine given the high rating - I should have read it properly.
