Made my system fly

Aly Karim, Amazon
12 May 2011
  • Summary: I have been telling everyone that will listen that the best upgrade possible for a computer is an SSD.... however I feel that Intel makes the more reliable ones on the market, my brother got an OCZ that failed 4 times on him (yet he is still very loyal to the brand) PROS: Boots in a third of the...

  • Summary: this intel SSD was sent to me broken. I tried it in different laptops but it still does not work well. I contacted with ganggggg to ask for a replacement but it refused to do so. I flied the claim within the 90 day window listed by Amazon and Amazon is willing to tackle the issue for me.

Excellent

  • Summary: Installed on my Nokia Booklet 3G. Had to jump through a lot of hoops to get a clean install, but the result was very much worth it. Some netbooks can only accept an 18mm drive and this is the best upgrade available.

Great!

ANK2, Amazon
1 December 2010
  • Summary: I got this on Dec 3, 2010.... it's not the fastest, but my laptop is lasting more and didn't have any problem ever since... highly recommended if you have a laptop and you don't want to drain the old battery up time... Intel makes great hardware.... not the fastest but they last long enough!

Exactly twice the performance

_RST, Amazon
28 November 2010
  • Summary: I installed this drive in an HP 2540P whose OEM hard drive is known for being a dud as far as performance goes. I used ghost to copy the OS up and back down to this SSD. The copying process was exactly twice the speed coming back down. Performance is noticeably faster from the first boot.

Best solution when a 1.8" uSata drive is required

Anonymous, Newegg
6 September 2010
  • Summary: I purchased the StarTech MCSATAADAP Micro SATA adapter (not stocked my newegg as of now) in order to access the Toshiba 250GB drive while outside of the laptop. This adapter may be able to be used with the SSD to install it in a desktop, but it probably won't work in a 2.5" laptop bay (I haven't...
  • Pros: Perfectly replaced the stock [Toshiba 250GB 5400rpm 1.8"] drive in a Lenovo T410s for improved performance and less risk of drive failure due to shaking the laptop. Excellent performance as expected with all Intel G2 SSD's -- read the reviews on the X25-M 80GB for benchmarks.
  • Cons: None

Great drive for people who need it.

Filippo N., Newegg
21 May 2010
  • Summary: I repeat: this drive is just for thin laptops and tablets that can only use 1.8” HDs or SSDs (SATA.) Don't buy it for any other application. Don't write bad reviews of this great product if you don't know what you are doing!
  • Pros: This drive is a fantastic bargain for users of ultra-thin laptops like my Thinkpad X300. The X300 can only use 1.8” drives, so there is not much choice. The 1.8” drives usually cost more than the 2.5” equivalents, but the X18-M costs the about same as the X25-M. This is a very fast alternative to...
  • Cons: No disadvantage at all, unless you buy it for the wrong application.

Great drive

Justin C., Newegg
18 May 2010
  • Summary: If you're considering the X18-M, you only have a handful of real options. I believe the RunCore Pro IV might be the only realistic one on the market. For all the reviews complaining about a Micro-SATA connector- do your research before buying.
  • Pros: Great drive. Has TRIM support, was a drop-in upgrade for my Dell XT2 convertible tablet, and absolutely smokes the 1.8" 5400 RPM HDD it replaced. (There are no 7200 RPM 1.8" drives on the market as of this writing)
  • Cons: Expensive. If you're restricted to 1.8" drives though, this is about par for the course. The $/GB ratio on the RunCore is about the same as the Intel. And with the Intel you're getting 34nm NAND (which might be slightly more battery-friendly, but probably negligible) and Intel firmware. The RunCo...
