Manufacturer Warranty

Parts
5 years limited
All Intel SSD 320 products sold in the OEM boxes have a five-year limited warranty term; however, the warranty includes a "Media Wearout" limitation. The Media Wearout limitation provides that the warranty shall expire when the usage of the drive has reached a predetermined usage limit established by Intel, which could result in a warranty term much shorter than five years for drives used in heavy-use, enterprise applications. The Media Wearout is determined by Intel's implementation of the SMART attribute "E9" Media Wearout indicator (as measured by and shown in the Intel SSD Toolbox, www.intel.com/go/ssdtoolbox). At any point during the warranty term, if the Media Wearout Indicator reads "1", as measured by the Intel SSD Toolbox, then the drive has reached its wear limit and the Limited Warranty at that point expires, regardless of how much time may have been remaining on the five-year term. This Media Wearout limitation is imposed due to the greater workload demands of enterprise/data center deployment on SSDs.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat SSD

Pros: Easy install, extends battery life, very fast start and shutdown.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Installed to a Lenovo X220: Windows 7 Pro, Intel Core i5-2520M, 8GB RAM, 9 Cell battery. Fit perfectly w/ no mods needed. Was recognized at startup, chose to start w/ CD/DVD drive to install from recovery CD & DVD's. Finished complete install, updates, preferred settings, transfer of wanted files, etc... in 5-6 hours. Not bad in my opinion to start from scratch. The battery life has extended an additional two hours, back to roughly 7-1/2 hours between charges. That is with the battery rated at 72% healthy as it is just over 12 months old. The ThinkPad is used for everything from surfing the web to creating design work w/ Autodesk Inventor & AutoCad LT. Absolutely worth the cost.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't do it

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome!

Pros: Smokin' fast drive even on SATA II. Easy install and conforms with most form factors for laptops. Up and running in 20 min. Things to remember ... (1) download and use the Intel Acronis version for cloning drive (generally not in your bundled package) (2) download and install Intel SSD Toolbox v 3.0 to ensure you have all the tools to optimize and update firmaware (3) turn off !DEFRAG! in windows (4) turn off indexing in windows (5) turn off power management to drive (idle, shut off, etc.) in windows (6) turn off and remove devices that perform all ReadyBoost in windows. Have fun!!! this drive will not disappoint - average Win7 Premium start time 13.5 seconds on a Dell Inspiron Core I3 w. 8gb of RAM. This SSD absolutely rox.

Cons: Very Expensive!

5 out of 5 eggsReally good

Pros: This is a really nice SSD. It's really fast. On a clean windows 7 installation, your PC will boot in 13 seconds (excluding the BIOS) with a I7 and 8gb ram. So this SSD is really not a bottle neck. Really really fast even if it's "only" a Sata II drive. Also it's nice because it's already a 7mm form factor, so no modification necessary. Support data encryption.

Cons: There was a 8mo bug on with those drive. Intel recently released a firmware to fix the problem. Since I have installed mine in a Lenovo X220 with no DVD, I finally manage to install the upgrade ISO on a bootable usb key. Now we all hope this bug is something of the past, I was not hit by the bug, but with the new firmware it's now safer.

Other Thoughts: - Come in a brown box, no cable, nothing, only the drive.
- Well packaged
- Really slow shipping (came by ground from LA) (it took 6 business days)
- Work nice in the lenovo X220 (plug and play, nothing special to do).

Bottom line: I highly recommand this SSD.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Drop In for x220 tablet

Pros: 1. This is the turnkey SSD solution if one wants to speed up an x220 or other 7mm drive lenovo. It just dropped in, no fuss, no muss, no new mounting or unscrewing...five minutes or less.
2. Way way faster than my kingston 128 gb V100+ drives. I wasn't sure the higher speeds would be reflected through the controller. They were. WEI is 7.6 for the drive.

Cons: None yet. Keep in mind this is a bare bones box so if you want to clone and upgrade, you'll need something SATA Wire and the latest version of the software. Even so, the software portion took all of another 45 minutes.

Other Thoughts: Good service.

4 out of 5 eggsFast, quiet No problem with MacBookPro

Pros: Fast, reliable, durable.

Cons: No trim on MacBookPro, Lion suppose to fix that. Low capacity, although not a problem for me.

Other Thoughts: Definetly SSD is the present. Planning to move other users since the HD is one of the most common problems in our laptops.
