5 out of 5 eggsGood Product for Good Price

Pros: Great Price. Newegg has best in class customer service so i would not buy anything elsewhere. Intel makes a great solid state product. This is a great price for such a relatively large drive. The drive has performed spectacular (replaced a 120g drive with this one on my htpc and used acronis to clone, had the drive replaced and back to my desktop 15mins from arrival). totally happy with purchase.

Cons: None.

5 out of 5 eggsThis is very good

Pros: This is my second Intel SSD.Earlier this year I bought a 120 GB just to see if they were as good as I had heard.Its been 6 or 8 months and Im still impressed.Newegg put the 480 GB on sale last weekend so I bought it.I like the quality of Intel,it comes with the adapter kit and a 5 year warranty.Cold boot time in the morning is about 15 seconds.Search times are faster too.I called Intel tech support once with a question about cloning the old HDD and they answered the phone very fast with good advice.On this computer Im using an Intel i5 4670K also very good.

Cons: None at all.

Other Thoughts: To clone the120 GB I used Apricorn software then installed the 480.Very simple.I ordered it last sunday night,it got here tuesday and an hour later it was running.Fast shipping with no problems.Thanks Newegg.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent

Pros: Great price (on sale), comes with adapter kit unlike many other drives, Intel SSD drives have never let me down over the years. Obviously very fast although I don't run measuring tests...more concerned about quality over absolute speed. They include a black plastic cover for the top of the drive if you don't like natural aluminum.

Cons: The adapter tray is natural metal. Would be nice if it was black as most cases are black inside so it needs to be painted to look good.

5 out of 5 eggsFelt compelled

Pros: I traded a video card for this ssd and really had my heart set on the Samsung Evo. I have been nothing but very satisfied with this ssd. I believe the specs on speed are a bit misleading as this ssd is fast faster than my OCZ Vertex 4 which is supposed to be faster. I play a lot of online games with load times and most of the time I'm waiting for other players to load up no doubt some with ssd's. I believe Intel to have some of the most stable internal controllers. The Intel migration software work flawlessly. I will be buying another 480GB as soon as I can afford. Glad I didn't buy the Samsung after hearing about the speed bug they had.

Cons: none

5 out of 5 eggsIntel SSDs are simply the best

Pros: Extreme reliability, not cloned or marginal memory.

Cons: Why do we always need to pick some negligible item and harp on it.....These drives are exactly what you need!
Cons? Lets all stop being internet pessimists, drinking the "Hateraid" on all this technology.

Other Thoughts: I design test equipment for the big guys and I can tell you that parts that just cant cut it are 'sold' elsewhere. Besides, once you have had a SSD fail as your primary system drive, you kick yourself for purchasing a lower brand, saving a mear $30 from companies toting specs that do not even matter (larger# the better...right...) Intel drives have never failed me.

5 out of 5 eggsmany SSD tested

Pros: Went from a Intel 510 to a Samsung 840 EVO and I found it to work slower with my set up (windows would load slower, battlefield would load slower) so I got rid of the samsung when the intel 530 came on sale. Intel is fast, reliable and the intel SSD toolbox is great. I regret my decision to switch, but the grass is always greener on the other side. I will stick with intel SSD from now on. Newegg shipping is fast and professional.

Cons: no cons on this drive because it included all the installation hardware. not all companies include that so it's something to look out for.

Other Thoughts: benchmarks are great, but i live for real life performance.
