3 out of 5 eggsFast, but bricked, RMA after 2 months

Pros: Fast, built-in encryption

Cons: This unit was not functional, all of a sudden, today, with no data recoverable. Drive appeared active, but would not boot, and showed up as 8K. I suggest that you make sure you have good up-to-date backups, if you go with this. Chance of failure is reportedly small, but if it does, your data is completely gone. RMA'd to Intel, will be more than 1 week before I get replacement.

Other Thoughts: The firmware problem that seems to be causing all of these failures ought to be fixed by now, Intel!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat, but minor issues...

Pros: Large, somewhat reliable, extra goodies in the box, 5 year warranty

Cons: -Drive had the infamous 8 MB bug in the 320 series.
-Intel Toolbox only runs on Windows.

Other Thoughts: After doing a firmware upgrade, I've had no problems thus far and I've had the drive for over 7 months now. Good support from Intel as well, but haven't had to RMA it so I don't know about that process.

1 out of 5 eggsDead after 6 months

Pros: I guess the only "pro" is that it's Intel, it will be more stable (supposedly).

Cons: Dead after 6 months, without any prior signs.

Other Thoughts: SSD is not ready for the market, these are too buggy and too unreliable.

5 out of 5 eggsWorld best drive anywhere

Pros: Perfect performance and ez step. Intel has the lowest failure rate of any drive out there. This is a whole new computer now

Cons: none other than price, but worth the safety and security of knowing i have a drive that never fails.

1 out of 5 eggsFailed after 42 days

Pros: None

Cons: Failed After 42 days. What else is there to say?

Other Thoughts: Don't believe the hype about Intel "durability" and "reliability" Their hard drives fail like all the others. Do your backups, or be a fool like me, trusting Intel with $$$ that you cannot refunded!
