What's In The Box
Lynette Y., Newegg
29 January 2015
Summary: Overall, I'm pleased with Newegg, but this purchase was disappointing and didn't have enough information.
Pros: the Intel name speaks for itself.
Cons: Intel packages this device in three types of packages, a brown box the size of the SSD, a blue labeled Intel box with a 2.5 to 3.5 drive bay adapter with a SATA III cable, and finally it's packaged as the second choice with a Data Migration cable also included...Newegg failed to alert the buyer w...
Not the best, but a good upgrade from the normal harddisk
30 September 2014
Summary: I bought this as an interim upgrade for my aging Intel M370 notebook. After all, it is important to think about changing the pre-installed harddisk that comes with the notebook after 4yrs. This Intel530 SSD is not the best out there for the price. I bought this because of the 5yr warranty.
Does not support the Dell Latitude Inspiron 3147-3750sLV

Summary: Unfortunately this drive does not support the Dell Latitude Inspiron 3147-3750sLV (2 in 1 Computer) BIOS interface (Win 8.1 does not recognize this drive). However, I did have success with the Samsung 840 EVO 250 GB SSD.
Summary: Even though the back of this unit looks like it was in use, the SMART data shows mine was the first time it was powered up. If this is refurbed, they know how to reset the counters, like dialing back an odometer. Box and anti-static bag were sealed, so if refurbed, was done so at factory.
Pros: SSD 5 Year Warranty - hope it means the drive is reliable Came with metal (not plastic) 2.5" to 3.5" mounting bracket Intel SSD Toolbox recognized it and flashed it to latest firmware Came with (short) SATA cable and power adapter
Cons: Ugly - the backplate (shoe) looks used - has scratches and stains as if stickers had been removed Slow - tested with AMD SB950 in AHCI mode (6Gbps) : Sequential writes of only 342 MB/s Sequential reads of only 292 MB/s Took a minute to do a "quick format" (NTFS)
Summary: En aning obskyrt användningsområde men att köra den som sekundär disk (D:) fungerade otroligt dåligt i en NUC i5 med en 840EVO mSATA som primär med Windows 7 (tyvärr kan jag inte köra 8.1 pga specifik mjukvara). Konstanta mikrofrysningar och muslagg så fort det skrivs eller läses från disken.
Summary: C'est mon premier SSD et comme pour beaucoup de commentaires: Les démarrages et arrêts sont fulgurants. Par contre, le logiciel de clonage à télécharger sur le site d'Intel n'a jamais fonctionné sur mon PC sous Windows 7.
