Summary: This was NOT for MY 2007 vaio laptop, but for someone else's "hand-me-down" 2011 intel i5 laptop. Word and Youtube open in 2 seconds. Amazing Speed. Thing is dead-silent when turned on, cuz, no spinning parts. Love it. Win7 install was slow cuz of the DVD reading.. not the SSD.
Pros: Came with a "SPEED DEMON" sticker! Put this in a Dell laptop where the hard drive is directly under the tap-pad. err.. "touchpad", so, the 640gb got destoryed. This is SO MUCH FASTER than a 5400rpm drive.
Cons: I want one for myself. My laptop has the old 100 series intel ssd. and 120gb isnt enough for me.
My tech guy couldn't believe something like this existed.

Summary: Yes, it's 2015 and I am definitely living in the future, even if there are no hover-boards. This tiny internal SSD actually holds 1.6 TB of memory, with about 1.4 available after the installation of your basic operating system - and it is FAST!
Summary: This hard driver performed according to my expectations. It's very fast, and very stable. I also like Intel's utilities for the drive. It was easy even in Linux to use their command-line tool to upgrade the firmware on the drive.
Summary: Bought two of these for my Synology DS3615xs for an SSD Cache. Work great and they are on the compatible list so I know they should not give me any trouble. That said, I have several 520 and 530 series SSD from Intel. They aren't the fastest on the block, but they are reliable.
Summary: DOA. This is the first Intel product I have ever purchased that failed to work right out of the box. Trying to replace an older smaller capacity solid-state drive but this one wasn't even recognized in BIOS.
Pros: Set right up on an older Athalon II with only 4MB. Boots up a lot faster and had a good amount of space for our media system. It's not as fast as my main system I use in the home office but I expected since the bus speeds are not as fast on the older Gigabyte Athalon II board compared to the Asus...
