5 out of 5 eggs320 Seris, Good Drive

Pros: I have 4 of this model in multiple computers and sizes. 120Gb, 160Gb and 300Gb.

Never had a problem. i do keep the firmware updated as the original firmware had a problem. I started buying in 2011 when Intel extended the warranty period to 5 years from the original 3 year period.

I have to assume that those with problems had the original firmware and never updated it as sudden death was a problem with the original firmware.

Cons: Can't really think of any.

Other Thoughts: After buying the first one I could not wait to switch all the computers to a SSD boot drive.

1 out of 5 eggsDrive Fails Constantly

Pros: Drastic speed improvements when loading programs. Computer is overall much more responsive.

Cons: We purchased three of these for work. I proposed that the high price would be offset by greater productivity. My boss is currently on his third drive since they constantly brick. My other co-workers just died today after about a month of use. Either we are just extremely unlucky or this drive has a fantastic failure rate.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great

Pros: Good price for a larger capacity SSD. This is my first SSD, so I have nothing to compare it to other than the dozen or so 7200 RPM hard drives I have owned. The silent fast Windows 7 boots are great. No problems after 6 months of use.

Cons: None, other than the high price of SSDs still.

5 out of 5 eggsIncredible performance

Pros: Speed. I have an Asus notebook from early 2008 that has a new lease on life after this upgrade. I don't have to wait for my notebook anymore.

Cons: I'd say price compared to HDD, but taking the warranty into account, this is the cheapest drive per GB for an SSD.

Other Thoughts: Dollar for dollar, the five-year warranty wipes the floor with the competition. These things die unexpectedly, so I have my backups.

1 out of 5 eggsDo not buy - big problems

Pros: None really.

Cons: It died in 8 days. There used to be a LOT of comments about this drives problems on newegg. There were also responses from the manufacturer. Those have all disappeared. This drive is unstable and will fail without notice.

Other Thoughts: Avoid at all costs. I'm dealing with the intel support process now. Not recommended.

5 out of 5 eggsIntel - Second to none!

Pros: Five year warranty, need I say more. I would like to see the other manufacturers compete with this. Easy to setup with Acronis Data transfer software. Cloning took less than 20 minutes total. Win Experience score went from a 5.9 to 7.6 in the harddrive category.

Cons: I had to reactivate Windows 7. I would say price, but all good technology costs big dollars!

Other Thoughts: If you don't want to spend money on the latest Intel processor, then this is a reasonable upgrade for speed!
