Summary: This, along with added ram in an additional Amazon purchase, really rejuvenated my Acer Aspire One netbook, NAV50. I use the netbook over the iPad now. I bought the Apricorn SATA Wire Notebook Hard Drive Upgrade Kit with USB 3.0 Connection ASW-USB3-25 (Grey) to clone the new drive with the original...
Summary: I have been running this SSD for a few years now, have preformed several wipes and the performance is still the same. Intel made a great SSD, now there are better options available but if you are looking to pick this one up used for a good price you won't get burned.
Summary: Your a loser if you don't use a SSD on you boot (System) drive. Way faster boot up, way less wear and tear on all other regular drives. No def-rag ever needed. Windows just works better delivering games, apps, etc with fast SSD access. Burst is tremendous and sustain is way better with no latency.
Summary: The old stock 80 GB hard drive ran slow and very hot. The 160 GB SDD had twice the capacity, ran cooler and faster and gave my old laptop a new look on life. I am quite pleased with this particular purchase.
Summary: I purchased this in 2010 for my Macbook Pro. I can proudly say I'm still running this drive, and it has not slowed down a bit. If you're on Mac, make sure to use Trim Enabler, so that you can take advantage of TRIM on an aftermarket drive. With that said, this drive revolutionized all my computers.
Summary: Boot-up time is many times shorter. Shutdown time is also many times shorter. Application opens very fast too. I use this as OS drive on my desktop. The Acronis cloning software that came with it just works as stated on the installation procedure.
Summary: This is a great SSD. Its capacity is a little small for an only drive but I have it in a server as its boot drive and it's been 100% reliable. I've been very pleased and will put Intel SSDs at the top of my buying list in the future.
