  • Summary: Modest performance, but if you only need SATA II, then it is OK.

Don't count on the "free" software and website support to work

Mondoman, Amazon
3 December 2010
  • Summary: I've had great results with Intel products in the past, and I know Intel's engineering is top-notch. That's why I bought this drive instead of one of the other brands. One of the selling features was Intel's free data migration software (to allow you to move your data from your current hard drive to...

Definately Quiet

Michael C., Newegg
12 July 2010
  • Summary: SSD is not worth the high price tag it currently has.
  • Pros: Faster than a normal hard drive. Soundless!
  • Cons: Doesn't seem that much faster on Windows load time. Extremely expensive. Maybe it is just so fast that my core 2 duo or memory are now the bottleneck.

Not up to Specs...Overpriced for Performance

Telstar, Amazon
15 May 2010
  • Summary: I tested this with and without a loaded OS with the same results under three different benchmarks. Sequential Read: ca. 180-190 MB/s average 183. Sequential Write: ca. 80 MB/s or so. I can get near this performance from the new Kingston V+, with better write performance overall.

Not noticeably faster than a WD Raptor

Dan Raymond "draymond", Amazon
2 February 2010
  • Summary: First of all I would like to mention that Amazon's shipping has gotten ridiculous. It took Amazon 3 days to get the product out the door (it was in stock when I ordered it) and then they chose to use the US Mail!

No true OS X support, G1 owners orphaned

SRS, Amazon
12 January 2010
  • Summary: Intel hasn't bothered to release even a simple command-line utility to deal with the internal fragmentation problem SSDs have, which degrades their performance as they are used. The company could at least put a warning label on the box.

Given the price, a reasonable product

Eddy Poon, Amazon
3 January 2010
  • Summary: For a price of $450+ for this drive, one can buy a desktop from dell, such as a Studio Desktop. To the majority of people who does Internet, facebook and some office work at home, I do not think the performance is worth the price. I own this, installed on my Macbook Pro.

Intel G2 SSD stutters

Gregory W., Newegg
3 November 2009
  • Pros: The drive is very fast on reads - about the same as the OCZ Vertex Turbo.
  • Cons: On a large SQL Server load to rebuild an in-memory object cache, it stutters very badly. It will be very fast and then periodically stutter with 20x slower reads. The stutter is bad enough to make the load process slower than a 15K RPM SAS drive. I can't recommend it for enterprise use. The OCZ d...

Nice drive but WAY over priced

Sandy M., Newegg
2 October 2009
  • Summary: It's actually cheaper to get a good full path 64bit SAS/SATA RAID controller with 1GB cache and some 10K Raptors that will deliver more consistant performance and deliver higher sustained transfer rates around 400-600 MB/sec (more than enough for uncompressed HD footage).
  • Pros: 1. Fast 2. Quiet 3. Low Power consumption 4. Access times
  • Cons: 1. Price 2. Performance degrades a little over time but still pretty fast 3. VERY high CPU overhead/utilization
